12 simple ways

To Get Connected With Nature This Summer

Getting outside and enjoying nature has been one of the best ways for me to decompress. I wanted to inspire you with 12 simple ways you can get connected with nature this summer.

A New Era For The Great Outdoors

The great outdoors have had a revival in the last few years I think this will be a different kind of admiration for the planet. A new romantic period that even Jack London and Thoreau would appreciate.

go to a new park

It’s a great time to explore a new state park or even a park closer to where you live. For Justin and mine’s anniversary we strolled around one of my favorite parks for an hour or two and it was glorious. It was nice just to enjoy the sun and appreciate all the birds and local wildlife.

plant bee friendly flowers

Want to spruce up your balcony or flower box? Consider planting bee friendly flowers. Recently, an endangered bumblebee saw a HUGE rise in population thanks to the revival of lost flower meadows. Help the bees by planting some bee-friendly flowers.

Wrap a few sandwiches in a cloth napkin. Throw in some homemade hummus with carrot sticks, some fresh fruit like watermelon or strawberries, and then finish the meal with a nice bar of chocolate! I also like to bring some kombucha or champagne for special occasions.

Plan a camping trip

It’s economical, it’s outside, and it’s f-u-n. Spend some time looking through campsites and plan out your perfect  trip. If you don’t have equipment, try to borrow some from friends,  family, or rent from a shop like REI or Sports Basement.
