Getting outside often has many health benefits. Not only does it get you moving around and physical, but it also exposes you to fresh air and natural sunlight, which is so important to overall health and well being.
We live in such a fast pace world that we often forget to get outside and disconnect a bit. It’s important that you make time for some time in nature’s elements and one of the easiest ways to accomplish this is by participating in a fun outdoor activity that you enjoy.
There are endless options, but if you need some help sparking some ideas then take a look at the suggestions below.
Weekend Camping and Hiking
If you really enjoy the outdoors then camping and hiking is a great way to really go deep into nature and experience all of its benefits. Now, if you live in the heart of a city this isn’t always easy, but if you have this type of environment close to you consider yourself very lucky.
You don’t have to pack heavy either. All you need is some essentials thrown in your check in luggage and you are off to your destination. Sometimes getting away from the house and work and just relaxing in nature is great therapy.
If for some reason camping and hiking is just too extreme for you, consider a trip to Melbourne Cup 2020 and take in the action outside.
Sport shooting has gained a lot of popularity over the recent years, with more outdoor shooting ranges popping up. You get to be in nature and have a little fun and excitement at the same time.

This is a great way to get out and enjoy the fresh air, but it’s also good for team building. This is why so many companies are more than happy to sponsor a team for the season to allow their employees to participate.
If you have any mountains near you then you should look into mountain biking. There are plenty of clam trails so don’t be afraid. It’s just a great way to get outside and get a great workout at the same time.
