Awesome Activities for Spring

In the one of our August blog posts, we discussed a few creative ways to keep cool during the warmer conditions we’ll be facing during Spring. In keeping with the theme of the new season and the warmer weather it brings with it, we have decided to give you a few fun activities for Spring.

Warmer weather means you get to go out more, do exciting things, and enjoy a King Pie or two. Below, we look at a few feel-good activities that will probably be conducive to you having a Mnandi-licious season.

Hit the Gym

Exercise isn’t only great for your physical appearance. In fact, there are a host of other benefits that come with occasionally hitting the gym. If you want to feel better, think better, be sharper and have more energy – then you should definitely include more gym time in your Spring schedule.

Keep Walking

Walking is a gentle, low-impact exercise that is available to everyone. Walking helps to strengthen your heart, and tone up both your legs and buttocks. So, if breaking a sweat through high-impact exercises at the gym isn’t your thing, then taking a long walk is a brilliant alternative.

Take it back to the beach

From the glorious beachfronts of Durban to the scenic waters of Cape Town, there is a lot to enjoy from the Mzansi coastline. So why not fly down or, even better, road trip to one of these wonderful locations?

Swimming

This is another low-impact activity, which is amazing for your health and all round happiness. Spending time in water helps you feel good, while also strengthening muscles. Also, swimming pools go hand-in-hand with pool parties. Who doesn’t love a good pool party?

Visit your nearest King Pie store

With our delicious, mouth-watering variety of Mnandi-licious pies, baked with the finest ingredients, visiting a King Pie stores is always a good idea. Along with our tasty pies, we have plenty of cooling refreshments to keep your days extra cool.

Make the most of the sunny weather and clear, blue skies this Spring. Don’t hesitate to come into a King Pie, and take advantage of one of our Mnandi-licious deals.

Keep it Cool this Spring!

Winter is rapidly melting away, and it is almost time for Spring. For all of us at King Pie, Spring represents new life, flowers blooming, the leaves being restored to their natural green and Mnandi-licious refreshments. However, what does one do when the sun is shining at its Zenith and the heat becomes unbearable?

Besides for finding shelter in your nearest King Pie store, here are a few tips on how to stay cool and fresh this Spring.

 

  1. WHATTAAH!!

It’s always good science, to keep yourself hydrated with some government juice, so make sure you drink between 6 and 10 glasses of water per day. Heat can be exhausting if an adequate amount of water isn’t consumed, daily.

  1. DRESS LIGHT:

Keep cool and don’t drape yourself in heavy layers. Heat is trapped by Synthetic fibre, but cotton, on the other hand, absorbs perspiration and its evaporation. So stock up on the light and cotton-based, this Spring.

  1. DON’T LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT SUN-SCREEN:

Sunscreen helps protect your skin, keeps you looking young and decreases chances of skin damage. So, no sunscreen no play!

  1. 50 SHADES OF RAY:

A decent pair of sunglasses will aid in protecting your eyes, minimising brightness and helping you look cool and trendy. So be sure to get yourself a pair of stunners this Spring.

 

We hope you’re as excited about Spring as we are, and that these tips help you to keep it chilled and crispy in the heat.

Don’t forget to visit your nearest King Pie Store, get your fix of your favourite pie, and an ice-cold drink to wash it down.

Giving Back with King Pie

For all of us at King Pie, giving back to the communities of our wonderful country is something that we cherish. Our objective is to give love, joy, excitement and opportunities to the youth (the future of South Africa).

King Pie’s competitions afford our fellow funky South Africans the chance to win meals, airtime and R100 000 in cash. Our competitions are fun for all involved, but the best part for us is seeing the smiles on the faces of all of our prize winners.
