3 Fun Outdoor Activities to Boost Your Mood; guest post
1. Take a Hike
2. Dig in the Garden
3. Go for a Swim
- Aim for 10 minutes of exposure to your arms, legs, abdomen, and back about two to three times each week. After 10 minutes has passed, cover up with protective clothing and sunscreen. If you have dark skin, you may need to stay outside longer to get the same effect, but always go indoors before you start to burn.
- Schedule your outdoor activities for late morning and late afternoon, when the sun’s out but less intense than at midday. Opt to stay inside during the hottest parts of the day; if you need to go out, cover up.
- Check your local area’s UV index to prevent overexposure during times with high UV radiation.
