The official Green Gym Day is just around the corner–the second Sunday of June. It’s easy enough to come up with ideas about what to do for any one day, whether you’re an adult or a child. But the official Green Gym Day is just the beginning, and I hope you’ll be inspired and motivated to make every day green gym day – and that means having a stash of ideas. Here’s your stash.

Have you ever noticed how, every once in awhile, two or three things happen in a row that add up to make you go “Aha!”? Here’s how to be part of a little miracle.

Join us on June 9th, Green Gym Day, the first worldwide day of play for everyone. Green Gym Day is the day you’ve been waiting for–an excuse to get outdoors and play. Once you experience how good it feels to be active outdoors, you might make everyday Green Gym Day. My partners and I are using social media to promote the day and get more people outdoors, for the sheer pleasure of it. We’re inviting everyone to share their activities on the day with everyone else who takes part, via photos and video clips, which will be used to create a video montage of the day.

Are you feeling more of a time crunch than usual? Maybe you’re having more trouble than usual getting the exercise you KNOW you need? You want to keep those winter pounds from creeping up, to tame the stress monster, and just plain have fun, don’t you?

Have you noticed that gift giving has gotten a little harder this year? But hey, here’s how in one stroke you can show people that you care, support the US economy, minimize damage to the environment —AND take care of yourself without spending a bundle!
