Don’t waste your time waiting. Summer is here and before it’s gone, get out of your walls right now, catch shiny sunny rays, breath fresh air, catch the chirping bird songs, get grounded and make the most of the warmest season.
Adding some color to your garden is another great way to make it look more appealing. But, planting is a rewarding and gratifying experience that transports your soul, mind, body and elevates your spirits. It’s fantastic exercise, stretches muscles, lets you get in touch with nature and infuses you with some much-needed vitamin D. There is an abundance of this free vitamin and you absorb so much more of it in just 30 minutes by being outside. If you’ve got a small garden, don’t worry. By taking care of hanging baskets, wall climbers, small raised beds, and window boxes will provide the same gardening experience and benefits.
Add Some Fun
After a long day of work or soaking the sun for too long, it sure is nice to jump in the pool or relax in the hot tub. Not only it’s the outdoor space, where you still enjoy nature, but also where you can relax. We notice migrating birds, shiny stars, moon, airplanes, squirrels, bugs, and singing critters whenever we sit still and enjoy the quiet of the water tub. Having a hammock is nice as well, but my favorite way to enjoy the end of the summer day is in the sunshine-infused hot tub. Even kids and their friends enjoy the time spent together while swimming and splashing in the hot tub. So, add some fun to your outdoor space so that you want to be out there more. Even our dog playdates happily jump in the tub to cool off from all the playing and chasing. It was interesting to learn different options for Best Hot Tubs available since we moved in here. Never knew I am going to do so much research on each house item. As they say, live and learn.
One of the great joys of summer is eating outdoors. Somehow everything seems to taste better. A barbeque is a wonderful addition to any outdoors. A picnic in your garden or just eating in a comfortable outdoor space reduces stress levels, boosts your mood, improvs concentration and promotes contact with the natural world.
Go outside, have fun, get healed and soothed by nature, my dear friends!
