If you get stuck, think back to your childhood or a summer when you had a great time - what were you doing - or not doing? Top tip: If your ideas seem overly simple, it's a good sign.
Life too busy? Find small things you CAN do ex. a 20 minute walk after dinner, a weekend away instead of a vacation, organize dinner with friends on a restaurant patio if you're too tired to cook.
Need more ideas? Read a book, go rock-climbing/whitewater rafting/kayaking, visit friends/family, go to the beach, go fishing, meet new people, do something new, create a veggie bed, plant a fruit tree, play outdoor games, have a picnic, get out in nature or something completely different!
