3 Ways to Enjoy the Outdoors this Summer

*Collaborative post.

Summer is in full swing and I am loving the weather. Here in Cheshire, the weather is not too warm or wet, it is simply perfect and it gets really cool in the evenings. Thanks to the amazing summery weather, I am spending more time outdoors and I have spent more time in our garden this year than I have done in previous years. I hope the lovely summery weather stays on for many more weeks before the autumn strikes. If you are looking at ways to enjoy the outdoors this summer, you will find these 3 ways to enjoy the outdoors this summer post very useful.

Make the most of your garden space

If you are lucky enough to have a garden, making the most of the space is a great way to spend time in nature this season. We recently got some garden furniture and we are making the most of the shade and chairs. Having furniture in the garden encourages me to spend more time in outdoors. You don’t have to think about moving chairs or tables around once you have the garden furniture in place. This luxury rattan furniture by Bakari sofa living pictured below is a garden furniture set and it looks breathtaking. I love the stunning design a lot! I may just upgrade our garden furniture to this. What do you think of the set?

Go for long walks

I get out and about in nature everyday. Nature is amazing to explore, I never get bored. I go for long walks everyday and I enjoy it. It keeps me balanced and energised. If you are looking at ways to enjoy the outdoors this summer, going for walks is a great way to soak in nature and stay fit at the same time. It is also another way to get the kids busy. The twins join me on long walks regularly and they enjoy it. They like to take their binoculars and look out for birds, bugs and the likes. It is amazing to look at the world through the eyes of a happy child. It makes me appreciate the world a lot more.

Join an outdoor sports team

We have an outdoor sports team in our town area and many people speak highly of the team and workouts. If you have one in your local area, you could explore it if you are into working out in nature. You could also work out in your garden or join an online yoga class from the comfort of your own outdoor space.

The list is endless when it comes to finding ways to spend time in nature. There are so many more things you could do outdoors, but these three here are my top 3 tips for enjoying the outdoors.

Colouring Books for Women

Hey peeps! Happy Friday! I have recently fallen in love with colouring and I am really enjoying it. Colouring for me is very relaxing and therapeutic. I try to find time to colour every week. My daughter is so into colouring and she colours beautifully. I think I have now caught the colouring bug and it is helping me loads. If you are stressed, tired, bored or you just need to keep yourself busy and relaxed at home, I would recommend you get a colouring book and see how you get on with it. If you asked me some years if I would ever get a colouring book, my answer would be a clear no. I would say I won’t have the time or desire to colour, but life has changed so dramatically and I now find myself enjoying things I wouldn’t have dreamt of trying.

How to show your appreciation for your loved ones from afar

*Collaborative post.

Right now, the whole world is going through a tough time. Since Coronavirus was declared a global pandemic, we have all been put on lockdown, meaning that we have been unable to travel to see our loved ones – no matter whether they live in the same town or a completely different country. One way we can all make this process easier is by being kind to one another and showing each other how much we care. If you haven’t yet gone out of your way to let your family or friends know that you are thinking about them, here are some things you can consider doing to show how much you appreciate the special people in your life.

Share daily positive news

Do you have friends that are anxious during this time? If so, why not send them examples of good news stories that can help to take their minds off the negative situation? The Happy Newspaper was created to celebrate all that’s good in the world, so go ahead and call your friend up to share some lovely stories that you’ve read – it’ll make you both feel better.

Send tasty treats

If one of your loved ones has to spend their birthday in lockdown, don’t forget to send them a sweet treat such as some delicious toffee to let them know that you’ve remembered their special day.

Encourage them to stay active

Exercise helps to clear the mind, and that is particularly important when many of us are sat home worrying every day. If you have completed any feel-good fitness sessions recently, such as high intensity online classes from the likes of Joe Wicks on YouTube, forward the link on to your friends and family, so that they can try it out too. After they have done their first session, they’ll feel re-energised, and ready to do another one the following day!

Plan group calls

Do you have friends all over the world that you haven’t seen in months? Then why not arrange a group video call? During lockdown, many people have been getting together virtually, creating their own quizzes and taking part in fun activities such as charades. It’s the perfect way to unwind and forget about everything that is going on in the world for the evening.

How have you been showing your appreciation for your loved ones during this time?
