Springtime is a beautiful and active time of year. After a cold winter, people are finally able to get out of the house and enjoy the sunshine. And boy does it feel good!

People of every age want to get out in the fresh air and bask in the warmth of the sun. This is a great time of year to get out of the house and get active. With the warmth, spring also brings endless opportunities for hobbies, projects, and games, which regardless of mobility, people of all ages can partake in these activities. Below are some examples of activities that are perfect for seniors in the spring.

Planning a picnic is a great way to start off the spring season. Whether it be with family or friends, it brings everyone together, and who doesn’t love an activity that involves food? You can also get involved in planning the picnic, by deciding on which foods to have, preparing them and deciding where to have the picnic.

Visiting outdoor markets, antique shops and nurseries can be a great springtime activity. Purchase and enjoying fresh veggies, finding antique decor and beautiful flowers. This allows you to explore fresh foods, redecorate the home and maybe even partake in some gardening. Gardening is wonderful because it can turn into active time and a great hobby for those that love the outdoors.

Spring cleaning is an important part of the spring season. Getting involved in a task such as cleaning out an old barn, attic or basement is a great project that can make you them feel accomplished and more comfortable afterwards.

Outdoor games are a great way to get outside and stay active. Games such a golfing, biking and fishing can be very fulfilling for anyone. Also, fishing is an activity that can be done from a wheelchair, so mobility is not always an issue. In addition to partaking in games, you can go to games. Whether it be a grandchild’s game or a pro game, attending a baseball or soccer game is a fun way to get out and get them involved in community activities. Other community activities can involve joining a community pool or health club. This way you can take classes and befriend other seniors.

Having been confined for most of the winter, anyone can start to feel restless or lonely. Meeting new people and trying these different activities can help to remedy these negative feelings and give you a sense of happiness and fulfillment.
