Creative Ways to Enjoy the Sunshine

Leave a comment

It’s hard not to feel hopeful and inspired on a sunny spring day. Spending time outside in direct sunlight not only gives us a good dose of Vitamin D, but studies show that it’s good for our mental health as well. Take to the streets and sidewalks, find a local park to hang out in, or just enjoy outdoor seating at your favourite coffee shop. Here are a few suggestions of how you can make the most of the springlike weather:

– Go for a leisurely walk, by yourself, or with someone whose company your enjoy (this includes pets!)
– Get into a good book

– Study/do your schoolwork
– Play your instrument outside (if you can!) or listen to music
– Find some outdoor scenery to sketch or paint
– Write some poetry inspired by the day
– Take your knitting/sewing projects outside 

– Take your laptop/smartphone outside and play some games or do some blogging
– Practice yoga 
– Write a letter to a friend or family member (yes, a letter!)
– Write in your journal (or start one)

It’s easy to feel run-down when we’re struggling. Participating in creative and productive activities can help us feel better about ourselves, and better about life in general. In the spirit of renewal, let the springtime inspire you to do something you love, or even to try something new for your wellness today!
