    For fun our family likes to garden in the backyard. Our almost four year old is really into bugs right now. It makes me so happy to hear him explain to his neighbor friends during our gardening weekends about being vegan and why it’s important to treat every bug and animal with the respect they deserve.

  • Maribel

    Advocate of physical health, starting at the gym daily 5x a week to destress, seeking holistic remedies to improve mind and body, researching for new travel destinations, and always on the hunt for the best coffee and vegetarian spots in SF with friends!

  • kj.

    I like to take long walks and listen to music for fun. A fun hang out with friends is also great!

  • talia Bonilla

    I love making crafts with my 2 girls. Learning to create is such an exciting bonding moment for us. It’s also a constant reminder of how life is so precious

  • Lexei Allen

    Hi Alicia,
    I think my most favorite thing to do is walk the sandy beaches in Washington state with my children and husband. The sound of the waves and feeling of sand on my feet are amazing. Somehow being there makes everything better.

    Love and Light,

  • Cynthia

    My idea of fun, and what I love to do, is go for hikes in the Santa Monica mountains. After i head back from the hike I stop by the horse stable, and take some pictures of the horses with the mountain backdrop. It’s therapeutic and it makes you stop and realize all the beauty around.

  • Christina Cupani

    It sounds cheesy, but there aren’t that many people that inspire me, but you are the reason that I went vegan after 6 years of being a vegetarian. I was scared, didn’t think I had the will power, but my love for animals runs deep inside and that is because of YOUR activism. I would love a memento that will always remind me of why I chose to save animals.

  • Annamarie

    I live in Northern California and love hiking in Muir Woods (with my dog of course). The view of the Golden Gate always blows me away! Definitely recommend it! Thanks for all that you do!

  • Green Beauty Crusader

  • Karolina Sivas

    I love to go to tennis tournaments! It’s a different kind of live theater for me. You can find me sitting courtside in the heat snacking on something thirst quenching like a tangerine. I even pack my own vegan gluten free day of food to make it through the long sports day and stay healthy. Been doing it since 2007. It’s so fun!

  • Kristina

  • Kate Muss

    I volunteer for an animal rescue group. We have cats available for adoption at various pet stores. Volunteering with the cats there and at the local animal shelter is my idea of “fun” I love doing something I enjoy while knowing I am helping the kitties. We have lots of cats from both Hurricane Irma and Maria at the moment waiting to be adopted so there are lots of cats to care for and look after. They are all so sweet and provide hours of endless fun with their playful antics!

    Dear Alicia, for fun I like to have a smoke after work outside ( I feel like I should quit but don’t want to so, your encouragement either personally or via a post would be welcome. I know this is obviously against eco-vegan ethics however, my path is not always straight and narrow). I also like to go to the farmer’s market and shop and Whole Foods and treat myself to a few things. Just want to say happy anniversary to the kind life, it’s been a joy! Love you and yours. I hope you are well.

  • Amee gib

    I love to swim. I’ve always loved the water but up until this last summer when I turned 32, I had never actually “swam”, frankly it scared me. But now, oh my goodness I love it. There is nothing more therapeutic than the sound of the water as I cut through it.

  • Abbey

    Hi, Alicia! That outfit is supercute, thanks for doing these giveaways.

    I’m a mom of two girls ages 3.5 and 2, with another little one due in about 6 weeks. For fun together I love doing puzzles!

I try to balance that with yoga or walking on the beach at least a few times a week to stay grateful.

However, we have a lot of fun planning what our next National Park vacation will be. The researching of everything can be so exciting and builds up the anticipation. Also, decorating!

  • Dirios

    Hi Alicia,
    I met you once at Powell’s City of Books where I worked – I helped you sign “Kind Life” books for your reading, you were super-nice of course. I was so excited because I’m a vegan too – in my spare time I like to write, and I just had a book published – a middle grade fantasy called “Bridge of the Gods” set in Oregon. It is about man vs. nature and promotes a kind life and a deep connection to nature. I’d love to send you a signed one if you’d like! :) I’d also love to enter to win those adorable shorts! Thanks so much for all you do to educate the world about plant-based eating and living a truly kind life. xoxo

    I’m Crystal! I love to dance and explore my city of Houston for fun! I’ve never taken any professional dance classes but I love to “freestyle” dance alone or with friends. I love to explore my city because it has so much to offer!

    Fun for me is spending all my free time with my family. I enjoy spending time with my two daughters and my husband. Whether it is dinner and a movie together, motorcycle riding with my husband, taking trips, going to school activities and games. Just anything we can do together. That is what I love!

  • Kathleen

    Teaching my little ones about nature on our nature walks and watching the lessons take fruit in their minds. Sooo rewarding!

  • Elena

    My husband, myself and our 13 months old son love to go to the beach. While my husband surfs, I walk my son on the boardwalk In the stroller. We love to watch the sunset together as a family on the beach. We also go to a local place to eat while we’re there called “Surf Taco”. It’s really good!!

  • Sandra

    The best days ever are the ones spent enjoying my sporty girls. I realize that the days of sitting in a car driving to a soccer game are some of the most precious moments I get with them. Spontaneous conversations occur, some serious and some ridiculous, but this is where forever memories are made. Those moments melt my heart. I get to understand my kid’s opinions and concerns on varying matters in their own voice, within the confines of our car. My fun is getting out of our car and smiling at the humans I brought into this world.

    I like to go out to dinner and a movie! <3 thanks

  • Trang Phan

    I like to read personal development books and clip coupons for fun! Basically anything where I can sit on the couch and relax because I am always on the go. :)

  • Liovani Nazario

    I like going to the beach and just unwinding, spending time with my daughter is always fun, going to festivals, watching movies, camping, seeing my family, and even though it might not be fun for others, going to the gym is fun for me <3

  • Lisa Pecora

    I like to watch TV for fun.

  • Jordan Jensen

    I love to watch all your movies Alicia!

  • Teresa

    We like going to museums. I recently went to one that uses lower power operated handi capped doors to save energy.
    We looked at a huge boat that is being restored. They are using material left of from other boats which is awesome. Recycle.
    I love learning the history. About Indiana who actually uses a lot of plant based d items to do paints, color material, and make hand baskets.
    I love that we can preserve our history! It’s very important.

  • Jess Vaughan

    We go hiking in the nearby mountains!

  • Alexandra

    I am disabled and chronically ill, so that limits it somewhat. Meditation or just listening to music. There is spending time with the horses from the horse rescue/sanctuary my mom runs, but some days that includes less fun than one would hope, (A lot of the horses come with special needs, so you have to watch for that. And of course, as they say, you never know what is going to happen when you are working with animals ) There is so much I would love to do, but for now if I’m content if I make it down to the bookstore / tea room once in a while. Even if I get to watch a movie or show at with a companion animal or other family at home sometimes at night, can help me feel a little better.

  • Dennie Naprava

    I love exploring with my daughter. We go on nature hikes during the different seasons, and collect little treasures.

  • Skye

    I love to travel! I’m always happiest when seeing/experiencing new things. When I was younger, my friends always took trips out of the country during the summer – we didn’t have that kind of money, but the one big trip my family took us on when I was 9 years old was to Jamaica and I was in awe! At that point, I decided when I was older I was going to start marking places off my map. Last year I went to Mexico. This year my fiancé and I are spending our honeymoon in Venice, Italy; Rome, Italy; Athens, Greece; Olympia, Greece; Santorini, Greece; Dubrovnik, Croatia; and London! & Next year we will be visiting the children we sponsor in India on a mission trip before we have children of our own – so excited!

  • Laura

    I love taking my son to concerts and watching how he connects to music. We both love music so much so it’s a special bonding time for us. I also love to read and eat yummy food!!

  • Heather S

    I love going to my yoga class and reading books.

  • Nichole Taylor

    We like to take our son and daughter to play frisbee golf at our local park. The outside air mixed with beautiful mother nature makes it the perfect outing! Getting away from the screen and spending time with family is just the best!
