Springtime in Georgia is perfect for going outdoors and taking time to enjoy beautiful weather. Flowers begin to bloom and the beauties of Mother Nature can be seen all around. At Village Park Senior Living, we are embracing the fresh air through a variety of activities that our communities love to enjoy this time of the year. Make sure to put on some sunscreen before enjoying some of the following springtime activities.
Enjoy the Outdoors
As the weather continues to warm up, it is a great time to enjoy the sunshine and soak in some Vitamin D. Get some fresh air and enjoy the outdoors by taking a walk with friends around your neighborhood or at a local park. You can also enjoy a nice weekend stroll and fresh food at your local farmers market.
Have a Picnic
Another great way to enjoy the weather is gathering with close friends and family for a picnic. The north metro Atlanta area has countless parks and areas perfect for picnics. A Village Park favorite is the pavilion at Wills Park. The pavilion was donated by Galerie Living and opened in July 2020. The pavilion creates the perfect shaded outdoor space that is ideal for family gatherings.
When planning your picnic, make sure you bring plenty of water to stay hydrated. Pack some of your favorite treats or try something new. There are many healthy picnicking options. Food magazine and blog, delish.com, offers a variety of inventive recipes that taste good and incorporate healthy ingredients.
Bring the outdoors inside
The warm weather and joys of nature can also be enjoyed inside. By simply opening your windows, you have the opportunity to enjoy the pleasant sounds of nature. The breeze can help freshen the air inside your home.
As flowers bloom, you can also look forward to picking some of your favorites or buying fresh flora from your favorite store to bring into your home. Indoor plants have a multitude of benefits and have been known to improve health.
As Spring comes into full bloom, it is often a great opportunity to take the time to declutter your space. If you need help deciding what to keep and get rid of, check out this spring cleaning checklist.
