Now is the perfect time to show your lawn a little love. Not only will landscaping improve your home’s curb appeal, but you’ll also get to spend some time outside while tackling this task. Look for gorgeous flowers online and opt for contact less delivery from your local hardware store. You’ll forget all about the world’s craziness when you’re planting a beautiful garden. Think about sprucing up your backyard, as well. Create an oasis that you’ll want to escape to this summer. Purchase lounge chairs off the internet and install post light fixtures that’ll make it easier for you to see out there when things get dark.


Sadly, New York gyms are closed for the foreseeable future. However, don’t use this as an excuse to be a couch potato. Burn some calories outside this summer. Put a workout video on your phone and set things up in the backyard. Runners can also jog around the block if they stay away from others. Exercise-lovers should think about purchasing extra equipment online, too. Buy a jump rope so that you can break a sweat in the sun. Or, get a resistance band that you can tie to a railing for an incredibly tough workout.


This is an unprecedented moment in history. There’s so much uncertainty in the air; it’s unhealthy for people to stay in and watch the news all day. If you need fresh air and want to clear your mind, try meditating outside. If you’ve never meditated before, download an app on your phone to help you through the process. Be sure to look at the reviews before you give it a try, though. You’ll feel so much better once you step away from the television and listen to the birds chirp outside.

Follow these tips on how to pass the time outdoors while social distancing if you’re looking for a change of scenery. One positive about this crazy situation is that the weather is getting warmer. Enjoy the sunshine. As long as you stay away from other people, you can still catch a tan this summer.
