Why Having A Picnic Is Good For You

A picnic with friends or family is a great way to breathe in fresh air and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. An activity that has been enjoyed by people around the world for thousands of years, picnics offer many invaluable benefits that can be reaped by anyone.

1. Supports an active lifestyle.

A picnic is an opportunity to play outdoor games or sports, like frisbee, catch, and tag. No matter how old or active you are, going on a picnic will add a spring in your step. 

2. Helps cope with stress.

Spending time outdoors at a picnic will provide an escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life, and remind you of the peaceful pace of nature. “Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished,” said Lao Tzu.

Let go of stress and anxiety and enjoy the beauty and simplicity of nature.

3. Encourages a healthy diet.

Forget the processed chips, candy, and pre-made dinners. When planning a picnic, choose veggies, fresh fruit, organic meats, and healthy nuts to prepare your food.

Picnic People offers multiple menus with healthy food options for you to enjoy at your next picnic. Give us a call to learn more about our menus.

4. Inexpensive way to enjoy a social life.

Can’t afford a vacation or a fancy restaurant? A picnic is an inexpensive way to reconnect with friends and create new memories. If you’re having a family picnic, kids will have a great time running around and interacting with you face-to-face.

5. Fun way to enjoy fresh air.

Not everyone’s up for a hike or wild outdoor activities. If you’d like a relaxing opportunity to enjoy fresh air, a picnic could be just what you need. Leave the electronics at home and enjoy a moment of stillness.

6. Opportunities to bond with family and friends.

At home, phones, computers, TVs, and other electronics distract us from face-to-face conversations with the people we love. A picnic is a simple activity that will remind you of the precious bond you have with friends and family.

7. Opportunities for self-reflection.

A picnic can also be enjoyed on your own. If you’d like some time away from everyone, then bring a journal to write down your thoughts or simply people watch.

No matter your reason for having a picnic, the bottom line is, picnics are good for you!
