Shopping Mall or Park: Challenge Accepted

Nevertheless, isn’t it great to put this usual way of spending your free time aside and try something amazing?

Autumn Is Waiting…
Autumn can be such time when you are usually constantly tired. This strange weather seems to be killing you. From the other side, even when it is a bit cold, it is possible to find interesting and creative activities outdoors. For example, what about attending some exciting festival of east culture (or dedicated to some other subject) where there is usually a concert, a food court location, different zones for entertainment and education. Isn’t is a great idea? Usually, many festivals are conducted in this period as people want to get fun before it is getting colder.
If you have the opportunity to go to a forest, catch this opportunity to go and go after a rainfall to pick up mushrooms with your relatives and friends. It is really exciting because you can also spend a great time with closest people, walk and organize a picnic. However, do not forget to be careful with mushrooms, do not pick up the mushrooms which you do not recognize as safe ones. Besides, your relatives can help with it, so do not go alone.
Winter Is a Period of Wonders…
…but how much time you may waste your time just sitting at home and watching TV or playing computer games! Of course, it is not the time when you can walk outdoors all day long, but it does not mean that you have to imprison yourself in four walls.
Do you remember those charming games that children play in the winter? Believe us that they are quite better than the constant boring sitting glued to the screen. Go out from the university building and try arranging a big student battle on the break instead of surfing the Internet at home! It can be even a bigger battle between several universities. It depends on your wish and readiness to organize the events of such kind.
Spring Is Singing, Summer Is Dancing!
A charming period of spring is also capricious, as it is not warm enough, but may it not hinder you to spend the time outdoors. Maybe, it is the time when you need to discover new things about yourself and the place where you live. For example, you can arrange for you and your friend some bicycle ride over the city with some fixed stops near interesting places. It can even be a bicycle quest, why not? Thus, keep fit, enjoy cycling, spend time with a dear fellow traveler and discover new places and beautiful unexpected details in your city, which you seem to know well (on the first sight)! Doesn’t it seem to you that using a car is not so exciting?
If it is a warm season, why not to forget for some time about your favorite in-four-walls gym and go in for sports in the park? Take your friends and arrange group sport sessions outside or even something like an Olympiad! It can consist of running, some exercises, stretching, and even active ball games such as basketball or volleyball. Also if you want, you can add some yoga and meditation for relaxation. Everybody can try to become a trainer!
By the way, going in for sports is not the one activity which you can do outdoors. One more important part of our life is getting knowledge. No, it will not be a dull story about how much you have to study and not to think about fun! Education can be really interesting, see it for yourself, as your close people – relatives and friends – have different interesting knowledge and skills! It would be a brilliant idea to organize a party in a park or near a lake in such way that you will have a picnic, play interesting games, listen to music and enjoy something like an “opened university.” Imagine that everyone who wants can lead a workshop, tell an interesting story or share own knowledge. Thus, your rest will be both interesting and fruitful! You can get great communication and get a wider outlook about the nature at the same moment!
Also it could be interesting for you to try horse riding. You can do it in any warm season, and we can bet that you will enjoy it a lot!
Nevertheless, it happens that you are alone at times and no one can share your free time with you. Do not panic or get disappointed about it because often we do not notice some important details when we are with someone or in a group of people. It can turn out to be a great time for you walking, reading book and so on. Boldly come out and live!
