With warmer weather, it's great to explore the outdoors in NJ

Spring is finally in full swing here in New Jersey. For most of April and much of May we dealt with rain, strong winds and colder weather.

But eventually it feels like it's going to break. Enough with the high temperatures one day and then bitter cold and rain the next.

It's finally time to go outside and enjoy the fresh air. I am an enthusiastic golfer, but I also enjoy walks in nature.

Living in rural New Jersey, there are endless places to go for walks. Whether on the streets near my home and in my city or in the parks that surround my area, it seems like there is no excuse not to get outside and do something at least once a day.

And the month of May is really the perfect time for it. The weather is nicer, but it's not so hot that it feels like being outside. The weather is coming (I see it in July and August), but it's not quite there yet.

The humidity is not that high and there is a pleasant breeze that can cool you down when you are outside.

Sure, there will be days when we don't want to be outside because of the heat, but over the next few weeks, take time to get some fresh air and just enjoy nature. It's a great way to clear your head and, most importantly, it makes you feel productive.
