The snow has melted, the sun is shining; it’s the perfect time to get outdoors and enjoy the beautiful spring weather! There are plenty of spring activities for senior citizens to enjoy this season while also remaining safe. We have compiled a list of great spring activity ideas for seniors. Check them out below!
First things first, it’s time to ditch the winter jacket and head outside to breathe in the amazing spring air. A walk or picnic are great ideas to start! Many spring flowers are blooming so taking a walk on a scenic trail is an excellent way to get some exercise and fresh air. If you don’t feel like heading outside, try opening the windows in your home. Not only will the air be refreshing, but it’s also a great time to remove any sort of storm shields still left on from winter.
Feed the Birds
The birds are also excited for spring and are back and ready to eat! A great spring activity is gathering bird feeders and placing them next to windows or sitting areas in your home. Not only are you helping feed your feathery friends, but you can also birdwatch from the comfort of your own home.
Start a Garden
Spring is the perfect time to start an indoor garden. That way when summer comes, you already have a potential growth started and your garden will certainly flourish. Start small with a few herbs that you enjoy or perhaps some beautiful spring blooms like tulips or lilies. Multiple studies have shown that indoor plants keep you healthier and happier, offering both psychological and physical health benefits.
