I have the same issue. I assume it’s from not doing activities that are specifically designated as “outdoorsy” (like fishing.) It’s still very annoying. I’m playing a sim that doesn’t even have a house, but he gets this moodlet while building a sandcastle on the beach. While camping on the beach. He sleeps on a towel, showers in the rain, and relieves himself in the ocean. Yet, he’s bored from being “inside”? What?

It's very annoying to me that reading/flower arranging and other activities are considered indoors when the sim is outdoors doing these things. I have a farmer sim who loves to read. She has the indoorsy trait even though she reads under a tree.  It's also frustrating that an open-air porch is considered indoors.

It seems a minor thing, but it's almost ruined the game for me.

I even let my sim sit on a bench away from my home lot and read his book there. Still gives him the bored moodlet.

I’m having the exact same issue. My sim was constantly outdoors - gardening, making flower arrangements and so on. However, she would still get negative moodlets for "spending too much time indoors" and the Outdoorsy lifestyle eventually faded away. 

There’s an explanation to this: in order to maintain the Outdoorsy lifestyle, sims have to engage in outdoor activities - campfire, basketball and etc. Just being outdoors does nothing (this was figured out by modders, not me). I wonder if it’s intentional or not.

There's a good explanation of why this happens and a fix mod for this here, if that helps: https://www.patreon.com/posts/45576247 Still something EA should tidy up themselves, but that could take a while!
