The good weather offers us a perfect opportunity to behave in a more sustainable way than ever before, and it puts us on the table hundreds of fun, social and healthy options to enjoy to the maximum. In addition, most of them are totally free, while others have unreasonable cost. With all these ideas to do outdoors, you will not have time to get bored. Best of all, you can do them in the company of whoever you like.
Sports in the park
The urban parks, the beaches or the mountains are great places to do all kinds of sports. Even if you are not a lover of gyms and you have carried a practically sedentary life during the winter, you are sure to find an activity that will amuse and tone you at the same time. Combining these sports daily or several times a week will keep you in shape, you will feel much healthier and you will entertain taking full advantage of the low temperatures. The following is a list of activities you can do during these days:
Volleyball or beach volleyball. One of the favorite sports of summer, to play both on the beach and in the parks. You will only need a ball and a net, although if you do not have one you can build one yourself. In order not to get too hot, we recommend you to place yourself in the shade or make yourself with a cloth cap or hat. Guaranteed team fun!
Badminton or sports spades. With only two rackets and a ball, you will test your marksmanship and spend lazy afternoons as a couple or team. These sports are ideal for playing on the beach, although they have the disadvantage that if it is windy, it becomes more difficult to control the ball. In some parks, there are ping-pong tables made of stone.
Football. With just one ball, you can form teams and prepare a mini-league of summer with which you will surely amuse and tone your legs.
Skating. Surely in your city or in the town where you spend the holidays, you find many places where you can test your balance and become an expert of this fun sport that you can do alone or in company. In the walks, sports centers or on the walks near the bank of a river you will find all the space that you need to skate.
Slackline. It has become very fashionable.It tests your balance by walking on a tightrope, which you can tie between two trees. Suitable for children and adults, you will only need a little practice.
Relax in the park with yoga or taichi
Oriental relaxation and breathing exercises, such as yoga, tai chi, pilates, and other similar exercises have been shown to help us find physical and mental calmness, becoming great allies for personal development. Whether you already practice them or have never tried them, summer offers us a wonderful opportunity to put them into practice. You will not need more than a foam mattress or soft blanket to support you and a cassette or mp3 to listen to the exercises if you are not yet a professional and do not know the dynamics.
A relaxing massage or a manicure and pedicure
Is there anything more relaxing, pleasurable and economical than receiving a massage our loved ones? Lie down on the beach or park and ask your partner to help you relax your muscles and give you a few minutes of happiness with a massage on the back, on the face, on the feet or wherever you like. You will not need more than the sunscreen that you apply normally. The ideal to massage are essential oils, but in that case, you should place yourself in the shade, otherwise you could burn your skin. If you are amateurs in this art, with an mp3 and an audio course of relaxing massages, you can spend mornings and afternoons learning new techniques and practicing among you. Aside from that, a manicure and pedicure is also a great way to pamper yourself. You can visit the nearest nail bar in your area. If you don’t know any then you can search on the web and simply type nail salons near me and you will be able to reflect a list of nail salons near you.
The magic of watching a kite fly
An activity that, although it requires a little practice, is to fly a kite. It seems a thing of the past, but it is not. You can build a nice kite and find the right place to fly it. Once you get it, you'll see how hypnotized you are by watching it in the air. A family-friendly activity that will amuse you both in the manual and creative process of designing the kite and when you spend the afternoon running around to see it fly.
