Summer time is usually all about the kids. Summer vacations to kid-friendly places, summer camp that cost an arm and a leg, beach days and trips to amusement parks that will drain you of all your energy. This summer especially, moms deserve a bit of a break. Moms should get a little time for fun too that doesn’t include the kids. So here is a list of fun outdoor activities for moms to enjoy even during quarantine…

  1. Go to the beach alone. Summer time is beach time and that usually means lugging a crap load of stuff for all your kiddos and spending your day screaming at your kids to stop throwing sand and they are too deep in the water. How does going alone sound? Find a spot on the beach far away from everyone else. Bring an amazing book, some trashy magazines, a comfy beach chair and a mini speaker to listen to music or a podcast and some delicious adult finger foods. Lay on the beach, take a nap and pretend like you don’t have any kids. It’s like a mini day-cation.
  2. Take a drive. Hop in your car, roll your windows down and turn on you favorite music. Take a drive to the mountains, the beach, a neighborhood you love or just the next town over. Just get away for the day from the chaos of your home and do something only you would like. The fresh air and new scenery will do you well.
  3. Dine al fresco. Set up a picnic for yourself in the middle of your yard. Or put your kids to bed and have a romantic meal filled with all the things your kids won’t eat and an adult conversation with no interruptions under the stars. Just be sure you have have your favorite wine handy and put out a Citronella candle to ward off those pesky mosquitos.
  4. Read. Yes… Read outside. Create a cozy outdoor space on your porch, your balcony or your backyard patio. Find a fun, easy summer read and spend time outside relaxing with a good book. You get a little vitamin D and exercise your mind and bit.
  5. Take walks. A brisk walk in the morning or evening can be so refreshing and help you clear your mind. You can beat the heat and feel good that you managed to get in some form of exercise for the day. Not only that, you get some quiet time to yourself without your kids interrupting your thoughts.Moms deserve a Gold Star acknowledging all the things that they do for their family.
  6. Workout. Grab a jump rope, or a yoga mat or some are weights… Find an outdoor area you can workout in and get your sweat on. Try something like jumping rope for 10 mins a day, yoga for 15 mins a day or a 30 day pushup challenge.
  7. Give yourself a mani/pedi. It’s summer time and time to bring out all the open toe cute sandals. With nail salons closed across the country, your crusty feet could probably use a little TLC…So grab some of your favorite nail polish and any tools you have… Like a footbath or manicure set . And you can even take it a step further and get nail stickers to give yourself a cute design. And good for you if this is already a regular part of your selfcare.
  8. Go on a hiking adventure. Since summer vacations aren’t happening for most of us this year, you can find ways to plan little mini 1 day adventures. Hiking on your local trails is a perfect way to feel like you are getting away from it all. You can enjoy a day of peaceful nature, fresh air and a change of scenery.

Getting outside and getting some vitamin D dan be a great way to to practice selfceare. And frankly, with all that is going on, moms deserve a break too. So make it a priority to get outside and enjoy yourself with no guilt attached.
