Seniors: Ideal summer activities to try

ARE you searching for an enjoyable summer hobby or activity that will allow you to spend more time outside? Try these:

Golf: Trying out a new sport might take a little bit of time and effort but golf can be a really relaxing and social experience that gives you the chance to spend time outside.

Yoga: Check with your local parks and recreation department or yoga studio to see if they offer any outdoor classes. Beginner yoga classes or even yoga classes for older adults can be restorative and social experiences that let you get out of the house and spend time with new friends in the great outdoors.

Outdoor art: With outdoor painting as a hobby you can enjoy our beautiful region, relax and create all at the same time. Buy an inexpensive paints set to begin with and head out for a nature walk to capture some beautiful scenery and wildlife.

Swimming: Ever tried a water aerobics class? Being in the water makes movement easier for those of us with stiff joints and it's a nice way to enjoy warmer weather while staying cool.
