I personally look at summer like a giant bucket list of things to do.
Each day is both a gift and a challenge, wondering what can I get into today?
While planting flowers and pulling weeds seem like a normal way to spend summer days, they are not outdoor activities. I am referring to trying out new skills and finding new passions.

Gotta stay healthy to enjoy your outdoor activities and these are a great daily addition to your lifestyle!
Vitamin C + A Daily Dose
True fact: Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that cannot be produced by the body, therefore, it must be replenished daily.
In fact, it has many beneficial purposes including:
- developing and maintaining healthy skin and bones
- forms collagen
- enhances the absorption of iron from plant-based foods we eat
- Vitamin C also provides support to the body’s immune system.
“Superior Source” Vitamin C 500 mg, “Sour Cherry Melts” contains very little sodium (only 1% of the Daily Requirement).
This is helpful because it offsets the natural acidity of Vitamin C, leading to a smoother less acidic taste.
NO sugar added; only sweetened with a little stevia.
Preferable to most “chewable” vitamin C products that typically are loaded with lots of sugar.
Vitamin D + It’s Not Just Outdoor Activities That Share It!
Vitamin D works in conjunction with calcium to promote the development and maintenance of strong bones and teeth.
Try Vitamin D (D3), the finest source of Vitamin D available!
Vitamin B-12 / B-6 – HEALTHY HEART + OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES
No Shot REQUIRED! OLE.
Methylcobalamin Vitamin B-12 / Vitamin B-6 with Folic Acid MicroLingual® Tablets go to work fast, under the tongue. Easy Peasy!
You won’t lose Vitamin B12 unlike other forms of Vitamin B-12 supplementation.
Together Vitamin B-12, Vitamin B-6, and Folic Acid work synergistically to support healthy heart function and provide essential nutrients for the cardiovascular system.
Did you know that Zinc is an essential mineral required by more than 300 enzymes for the support of multiple systems and functions in the human body?
Additionally, Zinc studies indicate that zinc promotes recovery from the common cold and related symptoms.
The Zinc Lozenjets is formulated with vitamin C and Elderberry as added protection for your health.
Stay healthy to enjoy outdoor activities! Go you.
#1 Intramural Sports
I bet when you read the word ‘Intramurals’ you automatically thought of high school and college kids, but this is not the case.
Did you know that communities, towns, companies, and churches organize intramural sports so that like-minded people can come together and play their favorite sports?
Get in touch with your former self, the good old college days by kicking around the soccer ball, or try something new like pickleball.
Are you ready to play on a team but don’t know where to look to find one in your community?
Head over to your local ‘Y’ or often times the community or township building.
#2 Water Sports
Keep cool and stay in shape by participating in a water sport.
There are a lot of community pools (the Y) and gym pools that sign just for the summer.
Did you know that often these pools have communities that compete?
Adults that want to compete, or join swim groups can too!
I learned that the Y in our area offers FREE Summer memberships to all college students with a proper ID, that’s great for them!
A few years back I had plantar fasciitis so bad that the only thing I could do was swim and because my joints were also sensitive, I tried out water aerobics.
This sport raises your heart rate, increases lung capacity, and works out your muscles without stressing your sensitive joints.
Swimming is one of the only physical activities that work out every muscle in your body, so this is a great workout if you want to tone all of your body at once.
#3 Outdoor Activities: Yoga
Who’s ready for a little downward dog?
Work up a sweat without hitting the hot yoga studio with an outdoor yoga session.
Have you ever seen an outdoor Yoga session? I love seeing this in Oakland (Pittsburgh) it is such a great way to meet people and enjoy the outdoors all at once.
Frick Park area.
Meetup groups and fitness centers alike offer outdoor yoga classes so you can perform this restorative exercise in the sunshine.
Soak up the rays during your Sun Salutation pose and feel the cool earth in your Savasana pose.
Simply purchase a yoga mat ready for some fun times in the sun.
#4 Outdoor activities Include: Beach Volleyball And Community
Beach volleyball is the quintessential sport of the summer.
My favorite time of year is when we head to our summer family picnic and the volleyball game begins.
It’s about fun, a light bit of trash-talking (haha), and lots of exercises.
We also have a great community volleyball area where people gather on Fridays and Saturday nights to play, it is easy to join in.
#5 Outdoor activities include Golf.
It’s time to talk cleats and clubs and of course golf fashion.
I am all about pink when it comes to golf, but there are so many fun styles.
Take those dust covers off your golf clubs and get ready to DRIVE those golf balls.
From driving to miniature golf to playing 9 & 18 holes, it is all about watching that little white ball sail into the air and right to where you want it, “Schwing’ is all I can say!
Nothing beats the sight of a blue sky meeting the lush green lawn of the range.
Golfing is a fun and relaxing game to play with friends. Join a local league, to challenge yourself and learn!
Spend a day out on the course taking leisurely nine rounds or get competitive with a whopping eighteen rounds of golf.
Backpacking is much like hiking, except you hike for days at a time and stay overnight.
If you love to hike nearby trails during the summer months, consider taking a backpacking trip.
The U.S. has some of the most breathtaking national parks in the world so don’t miss out on your chance to see the majestic scenery the U.S. has to offer.
The key to a great backpacking trip is friendship.
Always remember to bring a friend or join a group so you can stay safe and have fun.
