Nature’s gifts are here to stay and esteem. Even though appropriate precautionary measures need to be taken in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, you can explore bodies of water and their natural surroundings while performing some permitted recreations suitable under the current circumstances. Subject to applicable government authorities’ rules, you may consider any of the following activities that allow smoothly adopting social distancing practices:
1) Embracing the ocean or sea while staring at the horizon
Listen to wave's sounds, meditate, or take photographs of beautiful ocean or sea views.
2) Taking a long walk along the coast whether at the beach or on a boardwalk
It is preferable to do this early in the morning to prevent crowds.
3) Enjoying paddleboarding on a lagoon
This is a great recreation to relax while connecting with nature and yourself.
4) Immersing in a kayak adventure
Lagoons on the countryside are great spots for this recreation.
5) Swimming, snorkeling or diving in open water if you are fit to do so
You may like reserving a private sailing or diving trip. It is recommendable to use your own snorkel or dive gear.
Since quality of life is important always, the present is the best time to reorganize step-by-step how you will connect with bodies of water while protecting your health. Balance is key to temporary lifestyle adjustments during the current pandemic. Play safely.
