Health and Wellness Activities for the Summer: Part 2
A few weeks ago I started a new summer blog series called “Health and
Wellness Activities for the Summer”. Last summer one of our other bloggers, Kayla
Withrow, began a summer series and it was one of my favorites to read! This is why
I thought I would start off the same myself. Kayla also started a brand new summer
series of her own all about making your impact on summer 2022. With that being said,
make sure to click here after you finish reading this blog to get incorporated into hers as
well! In the previous blog that is a part of this series we talked about great activities you
can participate in such as hiking, going to the beach, and spring cleaning. If you are
interested in reading that blog, it is linked here. We are going to continue this list of ideas
that will make up what I like to call the “Summer Self-Care Bucket List”. As stated
before, let’s connect! Let us know on our social media platforms by tagging us if you do
any of the following activities this summer! Our Instagram is @recsports_uww. Find us
on Facebook by searching UW-Whitewater Rec Sports or by clicking here to stay
updated on all of our summer content. Now, let’s hop into a new set of ventures for
Health and Wellness Activities That Will Help You Stay Active This Summer:
- Have a Picnic
Going on a picnic brings back a lot of nostalgia for me. I have so many
great memories going on picnics with my family and friends as a child.
Recently, I have noticed that picnics are coming back into style. This
makes me happy that the idea is not dying out, but becoming more
popular. With that being said, grab a blanket and some snacks and have
yourself a picnic! This is a great way to get yourself into the outdoors and
also relax a bit.
- Go on a “Hot Girl Walk”
Now I know this term might sound strange if you have never heard it
before, but the phrase “hot girl walk” has become widely popular within the
past few months. This term refers to taking an outdoor walk while listening
to a motivational playlist or hearing an inspirational podcast. This walk can
be as short or as long as you would like it to be and it can be done solo or
with friends. All in all it really is just a fun way to get yourself outside and
excited for the day. Not only that, but walking is a simple and great way to
exercise. I always recommend a walk!
- Make a Summer Feel-Good Playlist
Now, if you’re going on a “hot girl walk” you will definitely need a good
playlist to listen to. Although this activity may be time consuming for some,
you can make it your own. Also, get excited while you’re doing this for the
next time you will be able to listen to it. This activity almost seems
therapeutic to me!
- Go to a Local Farmers Market
This one is pretty self explanatory. Check out your town’s farmers market!
I find this to be a fun way to try out new things and support local
businesses. You can do this by yourself for a little alone time, or you can
call a friend and bring them along with you! In my hometown Kenosha, we
like to call ours the Harbor Market because it is right on the water. It is
beautiful and one of my favorite places to be when it is warm out.
The fun does not stop here! In just a few weeks we will be releasing another blog
on an abundance of more activities for you to partake in for summer of 2022. To hold
you over until then, get acquainted with our other socials using the information listed
above. As Kayla says, remember to make your impact this summer! We are already
halfway through June!
Do not get discouraged,
