During the warmer months of the year, seniors can try out a variety of new activities. There are many summer activities that do not require extensive preparation. Visiting Angels Barrington goes through some activities seniors should consider trying out this summer. 

Since there are a lot of options choosing a place to start can be a bit of a challenge. If a senior does not know what activity to try out first, they should consider taking a walk. Walking is one of the most effective mood-boosting workouts for seniors. Sunlight can help to increase Vitamin D levels. Vitamin D can improve natural serotonin levels. Plus, vitamin D can help seniors maintain healthy calcium levels. 

Walking is great and all, but seniors can also enjoy reading a book or two during the summer. A senior can take their favorite book outside to read in the bright and warm sunlight. Additionally, when reading outside, a senior should remember to wear a hat or carry an umbrella for sun protection purposes.
