2. Skip the Gym
And head to the backyard instead! Whether you're working with a grass lawn, artificial turf or even a hard surface foundation like pavers, there are ENDLESS outdoor workout options available these days. Why go to a stuffy gym when fresh air and sunshine are abundant right outside the house?
Whether you're following an online workout video, a guided meditation app, or just doing your own routine, getting outside for your workout is invigorating after a long day at the office or running around taking care of errands.
3. Unwind With Yard Games
Looking for a way to get the kids outside and having fun in the sun? Yard games are great for the whole family, and with the extra hours of sunshine, everyone can see clearly and avoid injury. Set up the boards and beanbags to play a friendly game of corn hole, prop up a net in the corner of the yard and kick the soccer ball around, or keep it simple with hide-and-seek or tag! The options for outdoor games are endless, but daylight saving time isn't - so make the most of the sunshine while it lasts.
4. Start Your Summer Garden
Many of us lead busy lives that don't allow us to focus on leisurely activities until the evening, and by then it's usually too dark to be outdoors. For those who enjoy gardening, daylight saving provides the perfect opportunity to start setting up your desired landscape for Spring and Summer.
Preparing your garden space now means less work when the weather gets hotter and allows you more time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Plus there are SO many varieties of fruits, flowers and vegetables in season for the Summer, you can have fun planting each of your family members' favorite fruits or flowers.
5. Sit Back and Relax
Of course, simply soaking in the sun and enjoying the extra time in a beautiful backyard is always an excellent choice for kicking off daylight saving time. Grab a book and head to the patio for some light evening reading, watch the sunset from the comfort of your backyard, or just relax with your favorite glass of wine.
