Get Fit and Have Fun Outdoors!

May 10, 2013

Enjoy the sunshine – and all of the positive benefits that come along with it – by heading outdoors. Not only will you have fun but you can get fit too!

Spring and summer is the perfect time to add outdoor exercise into your regular routine. Since you want to be outside anyway, it is easy to go the extra step and doing something active. Instead of tanning by the pool or reading a book, choose one of these fun activities!

Play Tennis

Grab a couple of rackets and a friend and try hitting the ball around the local court. Most public parks have free tennis courts that anyone can use.

Go Swimming

Don’t just lay by the pool – dive in! Swimming is a fun activity to do by yourself or with friends and family. Just remember to apply waterproof sunscreen before and after.

Ride a Bike

Search the internet for local bike paths and then plan a trip. If you don’t have a bike you can rent one from a local bike shop.

Paddle a Kayak

Going kayaking or canoeing is a great way to enjoy a day on the water if you live near a lake or river.

Hit the Links

Although it might seem like an old person sport, golfing is an awesome way to enjoy the sun. Many golf courses offer deals to students at special times of the day. Call around to get the best deal.

How Often Does Your Family Exercise?

  • All the time - we're a totally fit family.
  • We exercise at least once a week - but we could do more.
  • Not every often - maybe once a month.
  • Never. We're a family of couch potatoes.

Dear Dish-It in the forums

Sometimes we get along all happily. Other times, conversations end with door slamming and yelling. Whenever I try to tell her that we need to work on this, she just says I'm being dramatic. It seems like one second we're laughing, then next we're fighting. She's 20, so the age difference is one of the problems. I really want to reconnect with my sister, but I don't know how. Help!

Ugh. Usually on Wednesdays, I have a cherry coke t-shirt with some Jean shorts. That t-shirt got RIPPED. D: Anyways I can barely make it through the week. I have a closet full of clothes, but there's only about 8 t-shirts that are nice looking. Hopefully soon there'll be a new clothes store, and soon I'll start wearing my winter clothes, but I need help for the PRESENT. Any ideas?

I would say just talk to the guy an ask him, but I know you would be scared. But anyway, just take it slow. Talk to the guy, an try to be friends with him. If he shows any signs of him liking you.. For example: He likes looking at you, tries to make you laugh, or likes being around you.. then that's mostly a sign.
