OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

Did you know that the current guidelines allow for individuals to engage in outdoor activity, provided the individuals comply with the Social Distancing Requirements...such as, by way of example and without limitation, walking, hiking, and running. 

Here are a few ideas (don’t forget your Social Distance rules!).

  • Visit a local park. Our parks are free, open to the public, and have great walking paths. Don't forget to maintain 6-foot Social Distance. Walk your dog, take a bike ride, or get a little Vitamin D. 
  • Walk/run around your neighborhood and say hi (from a distance) to all of your neighbors who are getting outside too.
  • Look for rocks. 
  • Go for a drive.
  • 15 Backyard Activities for Kids - fun, simple, and mostly free!

STAY CONNECTED

Although we’re all social distancing physically, as humans we need to stay connected emotionally. Try one or two of these out every day.

  • Create a cool video like the Inclusion Bottle Toss!
  • Call a friend or relative you haven’t spoken to in a while to check-in.
  • Write a letter ... the ol’ fashioned way, with a pen/pencil and paper.
  • Facetime a friend or loved one to check on them.
  • Support a local restaurant - Support your favorite joints and order food for pick up or try out Doordash or Ubereats and have it brought to you.
  • Volunteer.  There are many opportunities to volunteer to help those in our community.
  • Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
  • Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly and get plenty of sleep.  Make time to unwind.
  • Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.
  • Work on Mindfulness.  Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you focus on being intensely aware of what you’re sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgment. Practicing mindfulness involves breathing methods, guided imagery, and other practices to relax the body and mind and help reduce stress.
