Advent activities ideas – going outside in the light

A few days ago I showed you the Christmas in Paris Advent calendar which inspiration came a fantasized stroll in the city lights of Christmas. With the same theme, I imagined 24 winter activities before Christmas to enjoy the small things and bring light into your days: a good way too to take care of oneself.

Going outside,  being curious and kind

Last January a good friend of mine invited us to participate on what she called a gold star journey.

The idea is to go on physical activity every day even if it’s a small one such as walking.there is no competition or search for performance only the satisfaction to stick a gold star to your calendar and to know you did something healthy for yourself.

With the same idea I offer you daily activities to print on tags that match the Christmas in Paris Advent calendar. Instead of a gift you will be able to fill your calendar with small challenges. They relate to physical activity, to being curious but also to small act of kindness.
