Get out and Be Active
Enjoy the newly budding flowers and trees of nature after spending months with the snow. Find local hiking trails in your area to get deep into nature and away from the noise and hustle of everyday life.
Find quiet and serene places to think and take in the sights, sounds, smells, and feelings around you. Just be sure to prepare accordingly for the trek, dress appropriately for the environment, and don’t overburden yourself with supplies.
On the topic of nature, capture the moment by taking up photography. Whether you’re working with your phone camera or you invest in a top-of-the-line digital camera, you can point and click to immortalize everyday scenes. Photograph rushing creeks, deep ravines, dense woods, or animals off in the distance.
Experiment with different lenses and perspectives to give your photos life and dimension. It can be easy to get carried away with photography; make sure not to wander too far from the trail and always watch your footing.
Instead of looking at the Earth, look to the stars. Use binoculars to get your first glimpses or telescopes to stare at the surface of the moon. Chart the stars at night and piece them together to create the constellations.
This time can even be spent with friends and family to enjoy the outdoors. Turn your stargazing into a moonlit night of chatting and relaxing while being on the lookout for shooting stars and astral bodies.
For the very adventurous, spring is the best time to get into beekeeping. A colony of bumblebees will bring life to your backyard and to the flowers all around. Collect their honey and make sure they grow to be a strong and self-sufficient hive all to their own.
Beekeeping is more complex than the other activities and requires special equipment, such as careful use of the bee smoker to keep bees safe during an inspection.
These are all great hobbies to take up in the spring. Refresh yourself and try some out-of-the-box activities to shake up your everyday life.
