Considerations when Reading this Blog
A Break from the Everyday is not a how-to guide, but rather a collection of ideas. Additional information—like pricing, timing, directions, safety concerns and age requirements, etc.—may need to be collected and factored in before partaking in some of the activities mentioned in this book.
Many of these activities can be done independently, but I encourage you to ask others to join you ... a good friend, family member, or new acquaintance. Or consider inviting a group to join in—perhaps a team from work, school or the gym. You may be pleasantly surprised at just how excited folks will be to try something new and how touched they are that you asked them to join you.
Rent, Borrow, Swap
If you need to watch your budget, consider renting, borrowing or swapping items like bikes, sports equipment, movies and tools. A neighbor may have something you could borrow and vice versus.
Many of the activities in this book can be turned into a race against time or each other. If you’re a ruthless competitor, perhaps you should steer clear of this idea, but if you’re not, it can add an extra level of fun.
All Ages Welcome
I never want to assume anyone is too young or too old (physically or mentally) to partake in any activity. Adults need to tap into their inner child as much as young kids should be free to discover what they’re capable of and what they might enjoy.
