Towards the beginning of the summer I started a blog series for the summer called “Health and Wellness Activities for the Summer”. Well, today we are back with part four of this series! Luckily, there are an abundance of activities to do, especially with the summer upon us. As always, I try to make these activities outdoors based! This is because it is important to get your vitamin D, and to soak up the sun as much as we can before the dreadful winter is here once again. Today I will be sharing four summer activities I recommend you take part in this summer. If you are looking for more ideas make sure to check out our previous blogs on our website, or by clicking here. Once again, remember to tag us on our social media platforms if you take part in any of our fun summer activity ideas listed below. Our instagram page is @recsports_uww.

Health and Wellness Activities That Will Help You Stay Active This Summer:
Going Mini Golfing
○ Mini golfing is one of my all time favorite summer activities hands down. My family and I love to have a mini golf outing during the summertime. It’s great because by the time my family is off of work the sun starts to set and it is the perfect temperature to golf.
Gardening in your Backyard
○ Gardening is not only a great hobby to start up, but it is also a very healthy thing to do! You get to enjoy yummy food that is fresh from your own
garden. That is not only so satisfying, but great for your health!
○ Roller blading is something I was really into in high school, but that I want to also get back into this summer. It definitely takes some practice to get the hang of it, but once you do it is almost therapeutic in a way. Especially if you listen to music while rollerblading it is a great time!
Have a Bonfire with friends and family
○ After a long day, bonfires are a great way to wind down. Not only that, but smores are some of the best desserts to eat and they’re the best at a bonfire! Just typing this makes me want to have one tonight!
We encourage you to participate in these activities with or without friends and family. Many of these ideas can be done solo for days when you are looking for alone time, or you can do them if all of your close peers are busy. Next week I plan to incorporate ideas that you are able to do when the weather is not so great! Hope you enjoyed part four of this summer series, stay healthy and safe!
