What Can I Do Outside By Myself? Try These Fun Activities

With stay-at-home orders finally seeming to leave for good, many people are turning their attention to the great outdoors.

Having spent so much time inside, there’s never been a bigger time to appreciate mother nature and all things located outside. Staring at the same four walls day after day does nothing to improve your mental and physical health.

Getting outside will allow you to breathe fresh clean air and get kissed by the vitamin D rich sun. Immerse yourself within nature all at once.

There’s no time like the present to figure out a few innovative ideas that you can use as an excuse to get outdoors!

If you’re interested in finding out more, read on to uncover some of the best recommendations to utilize so that you can fall in love with outdoor living. 

1. Move To The Sticks 

Living in the middle of a bustling city or densely populated suburbs is going to have an extreme impact on your ability to spend time outside alone. It will also affect the quality of your experience should you ever choose to go out.

Cities and busy suburbs often lack green space and rarely include any nature whatsoever, which essentially defeats the point of heading outside (unless you simply want to sit on the concrete).

This lack of green space can discourage you from ever wanting to leave the comfort of your house or apartment. You’re never going to appreciate the beauty of nature if there isn’t any around!

Making the decision to move out to the sticks where it’s less developed is the perfect way to ensure you can spend more time outdoors quietly.

You will also be able to open your front door to see green space, forests, lakes, rolling hills or any other amazing space (depending on where you move to).

Living in charters towers or somewhere similar will allow you to rekindle your relationship with nature, as it will be right on your doorstep for total convenience, and you’ll even have a much greater chance of owning a backyard or some green space to call yours to do whatever you want with. 

2. Eat Your Meals Outside

Another excellent way to encourage yourself to spend more time amongst the great outdoors is by eating your meals outside rather than inside.

Whether you’re at work or at home, there are so many opportunities out there. Take your meal and enjoy it in the sunshine while listening to the buzz of insects and the song sung by birds.

You can take a picnic blanket with you to work and sit outside to enjoy your lunchtime sandwich.

You could even set up an al fresco dining area in your backyard with a canopy. Enjoy your dinner in the cool evening air come rain or shine.

Eating meals outside is even better for your health and digestion, so what’s not to love?
