Daylight savings is at end, the nights get longer and the skies stay brighter. It seems a shame not to make the most out of this bonus day-time, so here are some things you can do to get more from those last few hours of light!
Make a picnic – Pack up your favorite food and drink, grab your friends and head to your nearest park for a spot of al fresco dining. As well as being a great excuse to dust off the old picnic blanket, eating outside can be a great way to relax, and truly enjoy what you’re eating. Why not leave the phone at home and connect with nature instead – that game of Angry Birds can wait til you get home!
Go for a walk – Once you’ve finished your feast, why not go for a walk? You’ll be glad you did. Not only is walking a great way to stay in shape – in helps to prevent heart disease and arthritis – but it’s great for the mind too! It has been known to help with memory function and boost creativity, as well as reducing stress. But the best part? It’s free!
Hit the pub garden – If all that exercise sounds like too much hard work, then forget the journey and focus on the destination – the pub! What better place to spend a cool, light evening than in the pub garden, with a few friends and a nice cold drink!
Do something different – maybe you don’t fancy the more traditional outdoor pursuits, well in that case – do something different! Work out, paint something, cook your dinner, watch a film – play your favorite Grande Vegas games on your mobile? Whatever you do, find any excuse to spend more time outside!
