Enjoy Nature and the Outdoors

Many of us head straight to the beach in summer, but if swimming isn’t your strong point or you’re not close to the coast, there are other ways to enjoy the outdoors in summer. Find a spot under a tree in a park, and have a picnic with friends and family. If you’re feeling active, set up some group games or sport to pass the time.

Many beaches are close to parks, so this gives you the option of heading to the beach and moving to the park if you need a break from swimming, or to get out of the sun for the hottest part of the day. Beach volleyball, cricket, Frisbee and soccer are all great game options to play on the sand or in the park if you don’t feel like swimming in the ocean.

A lot of places offer outdoor yoga classes in summer, and being outside can help you to feel more relaxed than you usually would inside a studio. The best part about doing any exercise at the beach, is that you can cool down right away by jumping in the water!

Remember, whenever spending time in the sun, you should apply a sunscreen:

Fun and Exercise in the Water
It doesn’t matter what kind of body of water you’re near – a pool, lake or the ocean - there are numerous sporting and relaxing outdoor activities to do in the water.

paddle-boarding

Stand-Up Paddle Boarding
On your marks, get set, go! Once you’ve got to grips with the initial wobbly attempts to stand on the board, you’re ready to go. The best thing is that this trendy watersport is both a total body workout and can be practiced in a very relaxed manner.

canoieing

Canoeing
There are many options for canoeing throughout summer. Find a river or a lake and get going! You can go alone for an extra challenge, or take a group with you. Go fast through rapids, or take an easy course if you want to relax. It can also be a great date idea. Take someone special with you and enjoy the serene surrounds.

Protect your skin with Nivea

Getting outside and being active in the warmer months is a lot of fun, but it’s also important to make sure your skin doesn’t get burnt or damaged while you do it.

Make sure to apply a sunscreen like the NIVEA Ultra Beach Sunscreen Spray SPF 50+, or choose the NIVEA Kids Caring Sunscreen Spray SPF 50+ to protect young kids’ skin.

It’s important to reapply directly after swimming, or every few hours to ensure ongoing protection.
Always read the label. Use only as directed.
