The summer season is a time for fun and relaxation. However, people will often involve alcohol or drugs in their summer activities. A common misconception is that the best fun happens while intoxicated, but we’re here to tell you that couldn’t be further from the truth. Here are a few of many ways you can have fun this summer while staying sober. It’s important that you take care of your health, especially during this season. Make this summer count!

#1: Bicycling

Bicycling is one of many fun and rewarding summer activities. It’s not only good for your body, but your mind, too. According to the Stress Management Society, biking is one of the most successful and effective treatments for stress. Not only that, but it also helps with sleep. It addresses the imbalance in your sleep cycle by helping you get some shut eye much easier.

#2: Camping

Camping gives you a chance to unplug from the world and enjoy the beauty of nature. It also has been found to help decrease stress and depressive thoughts.  Nature is truly healing and spending time in it this summer will reap serious benefits.

#3: Picnicking

Picnicking is a great way to be outside in nature while also socializing with friends. Also, bringing your own food from home instead of going out to eat can be a real money saver. Picnicking can also help you get more Vitamin D which is a mood booster.

#4: Walking

Walking is a fun and easy way to stay healthy and fit this summer. It increases your heart and lung health while also giving you stronger bones and improved balance. Plus, as mentioned before, walking outside is great for your overall mood since the outdoors does numbers on mental health.
