In our last blog, we went over five different springtime activities that seniors might enjoy: bird watching, visiting a flower garden, daily walks, barbecues, and reading outdoors. At our assisted living center in Richfield, we believe it is important to enjoy the outdoors every day. Here are some more activities to consider:
Do yoga outdoors
Doing yoga is a great way to stay in shape. It helps you maintain the strength and balance necessary to enjoy your life. Doing yoga outdoors is even better, because you get to enjoy the sunshine and the fresh air. Try coordinating a group session for added enjoyment.
Visit a farmers’ market
Nothing beats fresh food, and there is no better place to get fresh and local food than a farmers’ market.
Go to the park
Now that it is nice outside, try visiting your local park. Parks are a great place to walk, read, socialize, observe nature, and maybe even get some people watching in.
Have a picnic
Eating is something you have to do every single day, but that doesn’t mean you have to eat indoors for every meal. Putting together a picnic is a great way to enjoy time with friends and family, while also experiencing the wonderment of springtime.
Spring is a great time to get outside and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. Hopefully, these last two blogs have inspired you to spend more time outside this spring. If you are looking for a great assisted living center in Richfield, contact us today. We’d love to tell you more about our facilities.
