Fun Outdoor Activities For Summer 2020

As summer fast approaches, it's time to start thinking of some outdoor activities that you can plan to take advantage of the warm weather and all that additional time off. Summer is a great time to go a little bit out of the box and out of your comfort zone with the activities that you plan. To help give you some ideas, here are a few fun outdoor activities that you can plan this summer.

Going Camping

Nothing immerses you in the great outdoors quite like a camping trip. Finding a spot out in a campground or, if you're even more adventurous, out in the wilderness itself, is a great way to get some fresh air and disconnect from the material world for a few days over the summer. Going in warm weather ensures that you'll stay relatively comfortable at night when the temperature typically dips a bit. When camping, you're going to want to make sure you are prepared with all of the camping equipment Toronto you might possibly need. If you're on your own out in the wilderness, it is far better to go in far too prepared than missing something that you may wind up finding essential.

Throwing a Family Reunion

In the summer, there is a greater chance that everyone can be a little more flexible with getting some time off and freeing up a few days for an event like a family reunion. Throwing a family reunion is a perfect summer activity. You can all get some time outside while connecting with family members who you haven't seen in a while. With more free schedules for most family members, the summer is the ideal time to plan a large-scale event like this. 

Hitting the Beach

There is no more quintessential summer opportunity than gathering up your towels and beach chairs and picking out a spot in the sand to relax. Whether you live fifteen minutes from the beach or a few hours away, whether it's a day trip or a vacation, you should try your best to carve out some time this summer to spend some quality time on the beach. You won't get the opportunity to do so at any other time of year.

Going camping, throwing a family reunion and hitting the beach are three fun outdoor activities that you can count on planning for the summer. All of them take advantage of the warm summer months and less stringent schedules that come in June, July and August.

4 Things You Need For An Outdoor Event

Planning an outdoor event, no matter its size, brings a unique set of challenges. Having the process firmly under control means making sure certain aspects of the event's logistics do not get overlooked. It's wise to keep an eye out for the little things that can ensure your outdoor festival, party, or fundraiser goes off without a hitch. 

1. Good Lighting

Any time an event takes place outdoors, lighting becomes key. You should not assume that the sun will be shining and provide enough light for every aspect of the festivities. It's not just the event itself that needs to be illuminated. Parking areas, travel paths, and staff access should all have sufficient lighting. If any setup and prep work will be done ahead of time, you'll need to make sure workers can see for that, too. 

2. Restrooms Facilities

This is a perennial problem for large events. Avoid long lines and gathering around portable bathrooms by arranging for portable festival restroom trailers. Each one can accommodate multiple party-goers at once, and they are a functional, attractive, and sanitary option for your guests.  

3. Parking Assistance

You'll want to have some form of assistance for getting vehicles parked and then getting people back and forth from the lot to the actual event. Start by having enough staff or volunteers to direct cars to the appropriate places to park. This will maximize the number of vehicles you can accommodate and allow you an accurate idea of how many more you can fit. 

You may want to consider offering a separate paved handicapped lot that is closer to the festivities or a shuttle to offer assistance. Not everyone will be able to trudge through an open field to get from their vehicle to the event. 

4. Emergency Backup Plans

When you are planning to get a large group of people together outside, weather-related delays or cancellations can happen. For the times when things just don't work out, have a backup plan in place. 
Careful planning can make your event a success. Use common sense and attention to detail to ensure that your event goes off without a hitch.

How To Buy And Learn An Instrument

So, you've recently decided to pick up a musical instrument, and you're wondering where to begin. It's difficult to know what materials you need and how to learn this new skill. Here is a quick guide to what to do when first learning an instrument.

What To Buy

When you're first learning, it can be easy to want to dive headfirst into all the bells and whistles associated with your new hobby. However, be conservative with your money at first. The amount you pay varies widely by the instrument you decide to learn, but for your first instrument, you shouldn't spend more than a few hundred dollars. Some instruments can go for thousands, but those are professional quality. When you're first starting, a beginner-level instrument will be more than sufficient. Later on, you can start buying the fancy vintage equipment parts for musical instruments.

How To Learn

With today's technology, learning an instrument, especially a popular instrument like piano or guitar, is easier than ever. There are several mobile apps dedicated to teaching people to play instruments cheaply. Most of these apps don't cost more than a few dollars, which is much cheaper than traditional lessons. However, if traditional lessons are the way you want to go, most local music stores either offer lessons or can recommend somewhere to get lessons. The other option is to teach yourself. Teaching yourself has the potential to be easier, however, it could be difficult to start, and your understanding of music will probably not be as comprehensive.

After you've bought your instrument and you begin learning to play, the rest is up to you. What do you want to do with your newfound skills? Do you want to try to get some gigs, or are you just playing for yourself? That's the beauty of music; you can do whatever you want with it.

3 Tips For Dealing With Writer's Block

You may have heard writers brag that they never get writer's block. They work to a deadline, they claim, and if they don't write, they don't get paid. They can't afford to have writer's block, so they stave it off through sheer force of will.

These writers are either lying or delusional. Whether you are an author cosmic fiction or you write technical manuals for a living, everyone who sets pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard, as the case may be) gets writer's block from time to time.
Fortunately, it isn't terminal. There are ways of working through it

Here are a few thoughtful ideas.

1. Give Yourself Permission To Be Imperfect

Sometimes the words flow freely as you write, and sometimes it seems like you have to fight for every word. Here's a curious fact, however: In either case, what you've written can almost always be improved by revision. Even a draft that you think is "pretty good" can usually be made better.

Let this fact empower you: Your first draft doesn't have to be perfect. It probably won't be. That's okay. You can fix it and make it better later. Nothing you write now is set in stone. In these early stages, at least, give yourself permission to write badly.

2. Don't Start at the Beginning

Do you know the feeling where you know where you want to go with your writing but you're not sure how to get there? When this happens, sometimes it is easier to start at your destination, i.e., the end of the piece, and work backwards. Or, you can start in the middle and work sideways. There are a lot of different entry points to a piece of writing. If you can't get in the front door, trying crawling through a window. In other words, if you're having trouble starting at the beginning, find a place where you feel you can write more easily and start there.

3. Conquer the Power of the White Paper

A white sheet of writing paper is an intimidating thing. It sits there, pristine and perfect, defying you to mar its beauty with your imperfect words.

As you already know, however, imperfection is okay. The way to conquer the paper's power is to negate it by writing something down. Anything will do, even if it is not related to your topic. Try a pre-writing exercise like brainstorming or freewriting for a new perspective on your topic, or just copy down your grandmother's recipe for biscuits. Once the paper is no longer unblemished, it loses its power over you.

By the way, a word processing program on the computer has similar power, but less so because everything you enter into it can be deleted without a trace.

Brainiac Kids

There is a new line of yogurt and applesauce pouches that are packed with brain-healthy nutrients. Brainiac Kids is helping to fill the gap in brain nutrition among 80% of children who are lacking in their daily Omega-3 needs, which science proves is critical for brain development in adolescence. They've packed these tasty yogurts and applesauce with a proprietary BrainPack, a blend of nutrients developing brains need, including Omega-3s, DHA, and ALA, as well as Choline. Plus, they contain 40% less sugar than the leading kids’ yogurt, one daily serving of protein, and probiotics. It’s a no “brainer” for parents! One yogurt serving alone is equivalent to 1 ounce of salmon, 2 cups of broccoli, and 1 cup of brussels sprouts! Not too bad for a parent on the go as well! Wink!
Finally an applesauce that is so much more. These ready-to-go pouches are made with seasonal, non-GMO, and 100% US Grown Apples. Each serving is supercharged with BrainPack. They require no refrigeration, which makes them the perfect snack for lunches, car rides, or wherever your kids need to be.
For bigger appetites, the 7 oz. yogurt drinks come in individual units. These make a great breakfast or larger snack after practice for those budding dancers and athletes. Each serving is packed with a generous 7g of protein without the excess sugar that many leading yogurt drinks contain. And of course BrainPack adds the much-needed Omega-3 DHA, Omega-3 ALA, and choline to this snack for kids of all ages.

Make Wedding Planning Less Stressful With These Tips

Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding! The day that you get married will be one of the most important and exciting days of both your and your future spouse's lives. With the stakes this high, however, making sure that every last detail of your wedding day is perfect can be both stressful and expensive. Read on for some helpful tips that will allow you to simplify and remove stress from the planning process.

Contact a Party Rental Company

Do you have a specific theme or vision in mind for your wedding? Rather than trying to track down all of the right decor on your own, reach out to a company that specializes in party rentals Oahu. You'll be able to describe your goals for the wedding's aesthetic to a professional, then leave it to them to source all of the right items and fit them into your event space.

Don't Rush Through Your Engagement

Even though you probably can't wait to get married, it's important to keep in mind that allowing yourself at least a year to plan will allow you to enjoy being engaged and take your time deciding on all of the details for the big day. Although it is possible to plan a wedding in six months or fewer, committing to that short of a time frame may cause you and your future spouse to become overwhelmed.

Keep Your Wedding Party Small

If you have a large family or a huge circle of friends, this may be easier said than done. Still, limiting the number of bridesmaids and groomsmen in your wedding is one of the most surefire ways to simply and eliminate stress from your planning process. When you have just a few of your closest friends or family members in the wedding, you'll only have to worry about a few suits, gowns and bouquets. You'll also have a shorter processional.

By following these tips, you'll be able to remove some of the stress and pressure for your wedding day. At the end of the day, what's most important is your future with your new spouse. Good luck!

Great Gifts for College Grads

College graduates are entering an exciting new phase of their lives, as independent adults. Perhaps you want to give the special grads in your life a gift, but are not sure what to give. The best gifts are those that congratulate them on the accomplishments of the past and capitalize on the promising future ahead.

Travel

Travel with them or send them alone. It doesn’t have to be a dream destination or the trip of a lifetime. It may not even be very long; just a week or two is plenty of time to reflect, reset and maybe learn a little bit about the world beyond the textbook. The stressed-out high achiever probably needs time to relax on the beach. The bookworm may benefit from a tour of national parks. Adrenaline junkies can get their thrills by ziplining, rock climbing and white-water rafting in Colorado. The political science major should visit Washington, D.C.

Home Furnishings

Many 20-somethings just graduating from college have lived at home, in fraternity or sorority houses or in dormitories. If they are just getting started in a place of their own, help them move in style. For a unique choice, buy handmade art. If you purchase online, you can get the art shipped directly to their new address. Other little luxuries include fine bed linens and towels. It will be a long time before they can afford 600-thread count sheets and thirsty Egyptian cotton on their own.

Health

College grads may have spent the last four or five years surviving on noodle soup and coffee. Now they can finally focus on their health again but they may not know where to start. Give the gift of a meal kit subscription. The kits can be tailored to fit just about every taste and dietary plan. Because the meals are pre-measured, the recipients get proper portions and never have to waste food. Moreover, the kits make preparing healthy meals easy and fun. Healthy living involves activity, too. Encourage exercise by gifting a year’s gym membership or a piece of home fitness equipment.
