Get Outdoors!

June is Great Outdoors Month, a celebration of the natural beauty that surrounds us. This month offers the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in nature: enjoy picnics and barbecues, visit the beach or the lake, spend time gardening or relaxing in a hammock, explore local, state, and national parks, take road trips, and share quality time with loved ones. It’s also an ideal time to start a new hobby or gain a new skill.

We encourage you to mix fun adventures, peaceful relaxation, and meaningful connections into your plans for June! Make planning a collaborative activity by involving your family and friends. When you write down your plans, they are more likely to happen, and you can ensure all necessary preparations are completed.

Revisit activities you loved as a child. Consider having a water balloon fight, camping in your backyard, roasting s’mores, going to a drive-in movie, making bird feeders, having a picnic, or creating sidewalk chalk art. Invite friends and family to join you in these nostalgic activities. Bring back the magic of summer and create lasting memories for the next generation.

Use this time to build a new habit. Whether it’s reading, exercising, drinking more water, journaling, or eating better, summer is a great time to start. It can take as little as 21 days to form a habit, so if you stay committed and follow through every day starting now, you’ll have a new habit established before the end of the season.

Remember, life is not measured by minutes or seconds, but by events—and no time of the year is more eventful than summer. Ensure you spend this time wisely by planning ahead and engaging in activities that will make you feel happy and fulfilled. Get outdoors, enjoy the beauty of nature, and make the most of Great Outdoors Month!
