If you’re like most people, you need to get away from the stress and strains of every day life which can leave even the best of us feeling tired, dull and listless ;).
And, what better way to invigorate our minds and bodies than by enjoying a lovely picnic on a Sunday afternoon on June. But how does one go about planning that perfect picnic?
I decided to check in with Mad Max.
He knows the importance of taking time to enjoy nature and get away from work, which is why he’s an expert at planning picnics. So, let’s take a page out of Max’s book and plan a Sunday afternoon picnic that will be the envy of everyone at the park.
Tip #1: Bring delicious food and drinks
No picnic is complete without delicious food and drinks. Mad Max always packs sandwiches, fruits, snacks, and plenty of drinks for his picnics. He also brings utensils, napkins, and cups, and uses reusable containers and water bottles to keep things eco-friendly. To make sure everyone’s satisfied, he asks his friends to bring their favorite snacks too! You can do the same. 🙂
Tip #2: Pack fun games
While food and drinks are essential, it’s important to remember that picnics are meant to be fun! Mad Max loves to bring croquet or badminton sets to play with his older friends. He also brings along a volleyball, net, and frisbees and boomerangs for the kids. These games are easy to set up and provide hours of entertainment. If you prefer a more low-key activity, bring a deck of cards and board games. Mini Pro Tip: Make it a gadget-free picnic. Ask people to kindly store their devices in their cars, pockets, and purses. No need to be anti-social. Remember, your phone could care less about you, your happiness or your health. Connect with people!
Tip #3: Pick the best location
Whether it’s a scenic overlook, a beautiful park, or a secluded beach, having a picturesque setting can really elevate the overall picnic experience. Make sure to do some research beforehand — like Mad Max does — to find the perfect spot and arrive early to secure a prime location. Mad Max knows how important the environment is for creating the best picnic experience ever and it’s going to make all the difference in creating a memorable and fun experience for all.
Mad Max Pro Tip:
Another Mad Max tip is to bring comfortable seating options. While a picnic blanket can be a nice touch, it’s not always the most comfortable to sit on for extended periods of time. Consider bringing some outdoor seating options such as foldable chairs or even inflatable loungers or mattresses. This way, everyone can relax and enjoy their food and drinks in comfort while playing games or simply lounging in the great outdoors.
Planning and enjoying a Sunday picnic is the best medicine. With a little planning, and implementing these valuable tips from Mad Max, you can make this a day to remember AND start the work week off feeling refreshed and revitalized! Yes, I think I’m going to the park today for a picnic. 🙂
Wishing you a wonderful day ahead!
