6 Outdoor Activities To Try This Summer
The sun is out, the air is calm, the birds are buzzing and the fresh scent of grass is wafting through the air.
It’s summertime baby and it’s time to get outside and active.
Shorts, tees, tanks, and flip-flops are summer staples and reusable water bottles, and great music makes the vibe of the summer strike up a notch.
Do you have the old favs that you do each summer like cornhole and patio sitting?
Maybe horseshoes or tennis?

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.
Ladies, I have a giveaway and some information for you.

Calming Formula combines L-Theanine, 5-HTP and Melatonin in an all-natural formula designed to support calmness and healthy sleep.
L-Theanine is an amino acid that is found in tea leaves; it promotes relaxation and facilitates sleep by contributing to a number of changes in the brain.
L-Theanine elevates levels of GABA, as well as serotonin and dopamine. 5-HTP supports the production of serotonin.
Overall, it’s an important substance for healthy nerve and brain function and the normal regulation of mood and normal sleep patterns
These chemicals are known as neurotransmitters, and they work in the brain to regulate emotions, mood, and sleep.
Thereby, increasing levels of these calming brain chemicals promote relaxation and can help with sleep.
Melatonin acts as a natural aid for healthy sleep regulation and the promotion of normal sleep cycles.
Biotin helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
Additionally, it promotes nail and hair strength and supports cell growth, metabolism of fats and amino acids, and the production of fatty acids.
Biotin is essential in the healthy functioning of the “Krebs Cycle” in which energy is released from foods and transferred to the body for use.
Vitamin K supports normal blood clotting and the formation of prothrombin.
Superior Source goes to work fast, under the tongue.
Melatonin acts as a natural aid for healthy sleep regulation and the promotion of normal sleep cycles during travel.

#1 Intramural Sports
I bet when you read the word ‘Intramurals’ you automatically thought 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 into 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 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 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 Friday’s and Saturday nights to play, it is easy to join in.
It’s time to talk cleats and clubs and of course golf fashion.
I am all about the 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. 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.
Summer is the best time of year to get out and get moving.
Try something new and get in shape by getting involved in one of these activities this summer.
