Four ways to soak up every moment of summer

Four ways to soak up every moment of summer

The British summer - blink and you miss it. But getting out in the sunshine is vital for your wellbeing, so here are four ways to enjoy it while it lasts.

As the summer stretches ahead of us, we are faced with endless possibilities of how to spend our free time - when it’s not raining, that is.

With three in four of us craving more time spent outdoors*, when the sun IS shining, make the most of every minute by getting outside and reconnecting with nature. It’s a proven mood-booster and will help you feel better prepared for when winter rolls in.

Here are four of our favourite ways to embrace the great outdoors at any given opportunity:

Take a detour

Instead of your usual route to the shops, why not take a detour through your local park? The sun on your back, the sight of the beautiful shrubbery and the long-lasting scent of vibrant flowers is sure to boost your mood.,

Exercise outdoors

The beauty of exercising outdoors is the space you’re in. Swap the screen of the treadmill for the beautiful scenery as you breathe in the fresh air around you.

Perhaps practice outdoor yoga to help feel both revitalised and balanced. For inspiration, check out the Best yoga poses for women over 50 here.

Take up a new skill

Gardening can be soothing and great for stress relief. As you tend to your plants, take the time to breathe in the fragrant air, feel the earth between your fingers, and listen to the bird song as you go.

Capture the moments of nature

Do you wish you could capture the scents of nature? Now you can with Lenor’s Inspired by Nature collection. Recreating the favourite scents of spring, you can wrap yourself in long-lasting freshness every day.

Plenty of outdoor


Do plenty of outdoor activity to get healthy and fresh air

Dog walking

Rain or shine I'm out walking with my dog but I much prefer it when the sun is shinning as it up lifts your mood and spirit it also makes people smile and be friendly saying hello watches pass you. The smell of the grass and all the shrubbery is captured in the new lenor scents.

Long country walk

Walking is a good form of exercise. I like walking in the country to get plenty of fresh air and exercises.

Family time


My 3.5 year old loves being outside, whether it's just playing in the garden or going to the park. He has a great imagination and loves finding insects and leaves. Lenor is great for freshening his clothes after a mucky day outside.
