5 ways to make the most of your brighter evenings
On Sunday the 28th March, the clocks go forward to mark the beginning of Daylight Saving Time. Instead of looking at it as a lost hour of sleep, think about more sunshine in the afternoons and warmer evenings as the countdown to summer begins.
We’ve put together 5 different ways to make use of the brighter evenings:
- Take a walk
You could enjoy a brisk three-mile walk every day, which adds up to almost 2,000 extra calories burned each week!
2. Get cooking
As daylight saving approaches get alfresco! Nothing spells the start of spring/summer like eating outside! Soak up the sun outside over a family feast, a great way to catch up and get some vitamin D at the same time.
3. Try some outdoor exercise
If you usually stay indoors to exercise, move your routine outdoors. Switching it up will energise your workout and you’ll get to enjoy warmer evenings and changing of the season. Exercise is a great way to get you out in the fresh air as well as ensuring those endorphins are pumping! Why not try out some exercise after work? An evening run is a great way to clear your head and ensure you feel refreshed.
4. Get cycling
This year for daylight saving time why not make the most of the warmer evenings and hop on your bike to boost your cardiovascular fitness. With more sunshine, you could have a cycle after work, or take some time out on the weekend to get the whole family together! Cycling is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint too, so what are you waiting for? Check out our cycling range.
5. Have a picnic in the park
With more sunshine every evening, why not enjoy a picnic in the park with friends and family. Longer and warmer evenings are the perfect time to wind down and relax and you may even catch the sunset!
