Senior fun is an ongoing thing if you want it to be. Mondays are the start of a new week and can bring great things for senior fun. Regardless of the weather there is something you can do!
What are we talking about?
Well parks rarely close and the beaches are open. How about a Monday stroll through the park or walk in the water along the beach? Great way to beat the heat.
Too hot outside for you? That’s okay. Call up some friends and arrange a cool game of your choice. Likely many others are looking for something to do inside.
Not feeling social? Grab you tablet, play a card game or do some crafts. Organize that closet or drawer that has been bothering you.
In home arts & crafts, cooking & baking, home improvements and fix its can all provide a sense of accomplishment and make you smile.
Need some energy? Try a nice glass of lemonade and put on some oldies but goodies. Music is said to be therapeutic, stimulates many senses and may get you in the mood to go outside and do more.
Senior Fun can be energizing!
Hop on your bike and feel the wind cool you down. Stop off for an ice cream and try to finish it before it melts.
Talk the dog to a nearby waterpark and laugh as they splash around. Or get a small kiddie pool for you balcony or backyard and let your dog play. Pets can be very therapeutic too and they need you.
Take yourself to the pool and get some amazing low impact exercise and cool off. Maybe a neighbour or family member has a pool and if not your local community centre or gym likely does. You can pay as you go if you don’t already have a membership or ask for a free trial pass.
Walking in the bush can help shelter you from the sun and provide an energizing amount of exercise.
Go out to the garden and admire the growth and blooms.
