Adult-Friendly Activities- Find Your Favorites This Summer

There are so many people who struggle with staying active and it can become difficult especially during retirement. Luckily, you can get out and get active this summer, no matter what you like to do. In the world of recreation, there are so many different ways to stay busy. It doesn't matter if you actually have a sport or event that you'd like to participate in or if you are just looking for some way to spend your time. Recreation is about more than just sports and fitness. Here are some other ideas:

-Find a crafting class or group. Not only will this get you out and interacting with others, but it can teach you skills or allow you to have a good time doing something that you love. Recreation is anything where you're doing an activity with others, and even though people assume that it's physical, that's not always the case.

-What about walking groups? Some people enjoy being able to just walk, and to do it with others. There are informal groups that get together to take various walks, including mall walkers, and they're definitely worth checking out if this sounds like a good idea to you.

-Swimming and water aerobics at your local pool or recreation center. This isn't something that everyone will enjoy, again, but it solves the dilemma and gets you out there and active in the community during the summer. Plus, it's a great way to cool off. Most classes for adults are scheduled when kids aren't around, too, which means you won't have to worry about that.

-Art walks and craft fairs are worth a look. There are so many of these every year, and especially during the summer months. A quick look at your community's calendar will tell you exactly what is going on and how you can get involved. Whether you participate or just attend as a guest, you'll be sure to have a good time.

I'm a sports and fitness enthusiast. I love staying active and finding things to do that let me be out and about. It's easy for me to stay busy. In fact, sometimes I find myself too busy. I know that's not the case for everyone. That's why I want to encourage you to get out there and get active so that you can have a good time and get the activity that you need.
