34 Fun Ways To Stay Active This Summer

Now, I live in cold Denmark, so it's always amazing when summer comes around. The warmth and sunshine is starting to touch nature and it's so lovely to spend time outside.

I'm loving the warm days and bright evenings. It makes it so wonderful to be outside, and I've been making it a habit to go for frequent walks to enjoy it! I'd be running if I could, but my silly knee injury won't let me for now.

Good thing there's so many other fun ways to stay active in the summer! I've compiled a list with my ideas on how to get moving - because even when you're on vacation, it's good to get moving.

Some ideas are way to sneak in a sweat session without even thinking you're exercising, and others are ways to stay active when it's just too damn hot!

Here we go:

  1. Use a playground as your outside gym
  2. Morning runs before it gets too hot outside
  3. Tossing frisbees
  4. Rollerblading
  5. Go swimming at the beach
  6. Bike rides to see news sides of the area you live in
  7. Go canoeing
  8. Fitness YouTube videos
  9. Go for a hike
  10. Mow the lawn (well maybe not that fun, but somebody has to do it)
  11. Outdoor yoga - there's just something special about practising outside
  12. Sports are usually a fun way to stay active - but does require a group of people
  13. Go on a nature trail
  14. Water aerobics
  15. Beach volley
  16. Join a running club or group
  17. Water balloon fights (because you need to stay hydrated?)
  18. Go to an amusement park - not much time to sit down there
  19. Tennis
  20. Rediscover your inner child - remember all the games you used to play?
  21. Dance the night away
  22. Try paddle boarding
  23. Laser tag
  24. Go to a water park
  25. Do a mini-triathlon
  26. Water volleyball
  27. Badminton
  28. Surfing
  29. End your day with a walk (along with someone you care about)
  30. Water gun battles (why should fun be exclusively for kids?)
  31. Beach runs - running in the sand is a great way to mix it up
  32. Jump rope
  33. Midnight runs/workouts - The temperature is good, and you don't have to get up early the next day!
  34. Walk a dog. If you don't have a dog, steal one. That's what I'm going to do. Because dogs are the purest, loveliest creatures on this earth
