Safe Outdoor Activities for the Lockdown for Good Mental Health
With the lockdown easing up, people are rushing to go outside and do the things that they haven’t done in a while. However, we’re not completely out of the woods yet. Plenty of safety and health measures need to be in place in order to keep the people safe and prevent the recurrence of cases. For those employees who want to brave the outdoors but want to do so conservatively, here are safe outdoor activities that will keep you from feeling FOMO.
Cycling allows you to feel the outside breeze and take in the sights while getting a daily dose of exercise. In fact, bicycles and their gears are in high demand right now, so much that they have been touted as the new toilet paper. There is no to minimal risk of cycling outside as long as the necessary precautions are taken. Just remind your staff to bike in non-crowded areas, practice social distancing, and wear a mask.
Now that some places are allowing gatherings of 10 people, now’s the perfect time to catch up with a few friends or family over good food, wine, and even better conversations. Encourage your staff to socialize by sending them hampers that will entice them to put their cooking skills to the test.
BBQ and picnics
For those who are starting to get restless indoors, they can enjoy their meals outside if the weather is good. Fire up the barbie and enjoy the spread in the backyard with loved ones. If there’s a nearby park or beach, people can also pack up a hamper and enjoy a picnic under the sun. Just don’t forget to sanitise your hands before touching the food.
Take me-time outdoors
At this point, even introverts are tired of being cooped up indoors. For those who feel long warm baths are no longer relaxing, outdoor meditation and yoga might just work. Afternoon tea and coffee at the veranda, especially in the middle of a hard day at work can do wonders for productivity and breaking the rut. To close the day, a glass of wine will help your staff unwind.
Jogging and walking
Same with cycling, there are not a lot of risks involved with jogging and walking as long as you maintain your distance from people and avoid crowded places. Physical activity is key to performing well at work and boosting immunity so it is crucial to meeting your daily required steps in order to stay healthy and productive.
