4 Fun Sober Summer Activities

Having Summer Fun While Sober

With the summertime rounding the corner, you may find yourself wondering what activities you can participate in that don't involve drugs and alcohol. We're here to share 4 ways that you can still enjoy the warmer months while in recovery!

1. Spending Time at the Beach

With warmer weather and longer days, what better time than now to soak up some much-needed sun and spend time at the beach? When spending time in the sun, sunlight can trigger your brain to release a hormone called serotonin—which helps to boost and regulate your mood!

2. Take Nature Walks & Hikes

Whether you prefer a stroll around your favorite park or hiking a more advanced trail, spending more time immersed in nature can provide a host of psychological and emotional health benefits that support your journey toward sober living. Spending more time outdoors and enjoying nature can have the following benefits:

  • Improved concentration
  • Improved memory
  • Strengthens critical-thinking skills
  • Decreases stress levels
  • Lowered risk of mental health disorders

3. Volunteer Your Time

When in recovery, helping others can help foster compassion for others and a sense of purpose for yourself. Whether you decide to dedicate your time to a local animal shelter, a soup kitchen, or a program focused on addiction—donating your time and energy can be a rewarding experience.

4. Learn a New Skill

When you aren’t drinking or doing drugs, you may find yourself with a sudden influx in free and idle time. One way that you can fill that time and support your journey toward recovery is to find a new hobby or build a new skill. Whether you want to pick up a sport or hone in on your artistic skills, finding a new hobby can have the following mental health benefits:

  • Decreased stress levels.
  • Improved self-esteem.
  • Better concentration skills.
  • Increased feelings of commitment and accountability.
