June is finally here, and you know what that means: it’s time to get your outdoor area spruced up for summer barbecues and evening drinks al fresco. Because with all the time we’ve spent indoors this spring, we’re all looking for ways to enjoy fresh air, safely. And one of the best ways to do that is to create a welcoming outdoor space at home with some outdoor smart gadgets.

While the news gets crazier every day, there’s no denying that summer weather brings good vibes. Warmer temperatures and longer days give us more opportunities to exercise and experience nature. Psychology Today cites a study showing that urban residents who spent 90 minutes walking in a park exhibited healthier brain activity and less ruminative thinking. So a walk outdoors can keep those positive thoughts flowing.
