A person spends most of his life at work, because often you come home only to sleep and eat. Due to work, the opportunity to devote time to the family is missed. Joint business and recreation contribute to cohesion. A weekend getaway is great for a family activity.
According to The Explorer, it is an opportunity to relax and unwind, even while looking after children who need an eye and an eye in the city. Children, in turn, will undoubtedly appreciate the opportunity to frolic, run and play to their heart’s content in a larger area than is available to them on the playground near the house.
Rest is a change of activity
Many work in a sitting position. At home, I no longer want to sit, but to lie down, that is, during the working week in those rare moments of calm, preference is given to passive rest. However, a sedentary lifestyle has a negative impact on overall health. And while relaxing in nature, you can find a lot of active activities.
Active family outdoor recreation: entertainment and health improvement
Chasing a ball, riding a bike, wandering through the forest is a great pastime. If you choose a reservoir as a place of rest, then fishing will be added to the above. The health function is also present in this type of recreation. No wonder there is an expression: movement is life. Playing sports, playing in fresh and clean air, sports competitions will strengthen the immunity of the whole family.
Introducing children to nature during a family vacation
Recreation in nature, in addition to entertaining and health-improving functions, also carries an educational function. Being in nature, children can and should be introduced to the living world, the environment, and taught to be frugal.
Why you should spend a family vacation in nature
Residents of large and very large cities during the working days get tired of the hustle and bustle, the noise of public transport and polluted air. Outdoor recreation is peace, measured sounds of the environment, cleanliness and freshness of the air. Isn’t that something that is missing in the daily routine? Rest in the bosom of nature is a charge of positive, energy, vivacity, health for the whole family.
Hiking in the mountains
Adherents of outdoor activities are simply obliged to visit the Carpathians at least once in the fall. The beauty of this amazing place enchants. The forests put on their golden-red attire. The yellow-brown foliage of the beeches gives way to the dark green of the needles, the meadows are full of herbs, and the mountain peaks beckon with grandeur and inviolability.
You will need quality equipment for the hike. It is most convenient to take with you a double tent with high water resistance and wind resistance. In the mountains, the weather is changeable and a sunny day can change to a rainy and cool evening. Therefore, the water resistance of the awning must be at least 5000 mm, and the higher the number, the better. The inner tent made of mesh fabric will protect against condensation on the walls, large windows with mosquito nets will provide good ventilation, and a spacious vestibule will accommodate all the equipment. Since the entire tourist load falls on the shoulders of the tourist, the weight and compactness of the tent also matter.
Picking mushrooms and berries
Picking mushrooms and berries can be one of my favorite autumn adventures. It’s easy to organize a joint trip: get together with your family or a small company, take baskets with you and go to the forest. And don’t forget the kids! They will appreciate the magic of the autumn forest, and maybe they will make a significant contribution to the common cause.
Autumn is rich in white, honey agarics, butterflies, Polish, milk mushrooms, chanterelles, boletus and aspen mushrooms. Looking for mushrooms hiding behind fallen leaves is very exciting. But it is no less pleasant to return home after a walk through the forest, cook mushroom soup and arrange a feast with relatives and friends.
No one canceled a snack in the forest either. You can build a fire, fry sausages, bake potatoes, and for greater convenience, take a set of folding furniture with you. The folding table and chairs weigh a little, fold compactly, and at the same time they will give comfort and coziness on the forest edge.
Don’t know about mushrooms? Go to the forest for hazel, hawthorn, wild rose and barberry. The swampy area will generously endow you with blueberries. But the most important thing is to collect more pleasant sensations: enjoy the purity of the forest air, smell the falling leaves and admire the cobweb floating in the wind.
Quiet lovers often like fishing. The very process of catching brings pleasure, and a successfully caught trophy increases this feeling tenfold. There are plenty of places for fishing in Ukraine. These are paid rates, where certain types of fish are bred, and inconspicuous bays, the approaches to which are overgrown with reeds, and deep pools under steep banks.
Autumn is the perfect season for boat fishing. If you follow the safety rules and properly organize the process, you can please yourself with a large pike perch, bream, crucian carp or perch. For a shallow body of water, a rubber boat is quite suitable. But for large rivers and lakes, the most suitable watercraft will be a motor boat with a large knot capacity.
Of course, for successful fishing you need a set of tackle, specific for each type of fish and fishing conditions. If you are not familiar with this, you will need the help of a more experienced assistant angler. But even after sitting for a couple of hours with a fishing rod on the river bank, you will have a rest from the bustle of the city and pressing matters.
