On average, how much time do you spend in the sun during the summer?

Are you outside most all day, or do you tend to stay inside?

  • We're in west Texas, so if it's not too windy, it's great to be outside. Plus we live on a farm, so it seems sinfull to sit inside all the time with all this land around us. But, it's been so windy we're forced inside as to avoid dirt-exfoliation lol

  • On the weekends when I am not working, we try to be outside as much as possible but not like tanning or anything, we stay shaded as much as possible!! its minnesota and its SO muggy so last year we ended up inside more than outside

  • I'm outside ALOT! If we're not at the pool, we're playing some kind of sport outside, or riding bikes. DS and I only come in if we have to.

  • We are outside a lot, but in the shade. I am lame and burn in 10 minutes. Even with baby spf 2000 on.

  • I am outside ALOT. We probably spend around 5 hours on average outside every day in the summer.

  • I am outside a lot as well. I love working in my flower gardens and tending to my vegetable gardens as well. There is so much in nature to bring joy and beauty to a life. I even love my wild flowers (weeds). Some of them have the most delicate and beautiful patterns and flowers. Setting up bird feeders is also a great way to view nature in your own backyard.

  • As little as possible. I dislike the heat and try to avoid it as much as possible.

  • As little as possible. I'm an indoors gal during the summer. 1) I dislike the heat...2) I have no need or desire to be any darker than I already am (lol)...3).. skin cancer runs rampant in my family, many have had to have patches removed from their face/backs/arms (men and women)

  • I stay inside if I can. Or at least in the shade. I'm so pale and I don't tan. I just turn lobster red with sunburn!
