1. Go for a Bush Walk One of the best and easiest ways to get out and about is by simply taking a walk. Wherever you are in the world, there is usually a multitude of nature walks available right on your doorstep. Heading out on a bush walk is a great way to experience the natural environment around you and you may even spot some native wildlife along the way, presenting some great photography opportunities as well so don’t forget to bring along your camera as you explore the walking tracks through your local national park.
2. Learn to Skateboard Another exciting way to get out and about and even try something new is to learn to skateboard. While it might be handy to have someone to teach you, it really is one of those activities which you can simply teach yourself, and doesn’t require too much coaching, just practice. With this new hobby under your belt, you’ll also have an ongoing excuse to get outside and into the sunshine to soak up some of that vitamin D to give put yourself in a great mood.
3. Swim in the Ocean Swimming can be a great way to zone out, relax and get in some of your daily exercise, but is also a great way to soak up some vitamin D. Whether your swimming abilities are at pro-level or you’re just a competent swimmer, you should be able to find a beach to suit your swimming needs. In a strong swell to test your abilities and fitness levels, or in calm waters for a relaxing float throwing on your swimmers and swimming in the ocean is a great way to soak up some vitamin D and the salt water is great for the skin, aiding to heal any little cuts or scratches you may have incurred on your bush walk.
4. Learn to Surf If you love the ocean and already do a lot of swimming, you probably have high enough Vitamin D levels...but also could be looking for a way to change up your outdoor exercise routine. Learning to surf is a great excuse to get out into the ocean and is a great skill to develop if you’re looking for more excuses to spend as much time as possible at the beach, because, let’s face it, who isn’t?
5. Ride a Bike Riding a bike is one thing we all learnt to do as a child. We used to spend whole afternoons riding around the streets of our neighbourhoods, terrorising the neighbours dogs, and heading over to your best friends house at any given chance but now that we’re all grown up, hardly any of us have time for those enjoyable past times anymore. So next time you have a free afternoon, whip out your bike and go for a ride out in the sunshine.
