Summer is fast approaching and we don’t want to rush the beautiful moments of summer. If you spent the first half of the year ignoring your summer goals and binge-watching your fave shows on Netflix we understand and we’re not judging. But now it’s almost time for summer, which means it’s time to live your best life!
1.HAVE FUN WITH FOOD
Busy work or school schedules sometimes mean stress eating, missing meals (especially breakfast!), or repeatedly eating the same thing for lack of time or energy. Now that you have some extra time on your hands, consider revamping your food life! Maybe try mindful eating, which is exactly as it sounds—being fully present as you’re eating, and making thoughtful decisions about when, how, and what you eat. Pay attention: How do you feel after you eat something? Also plan out some meals, try some new recipes.
2.Get Proper Sleep
We are pretty sure that you haven’t gotten actual sleep since school started or since you resumed work. Although you can’t really make up for lost sleep, you could cultivate some sweet sleep habits over the summer to get your body in a healthy rhythm. Consider starting a nighttime routine, like writing about your day in your journal before turning out the lights.
Poor time management can be a major mood killer. If you say yes to all the things and end up a zombie because your to-do list and schedule literally killed you, it might be time to organize your life differently. Summer can be a great time to look at your choices—try bullet journaling, use some new productivity and scheduling apps, and maybe even embrace the power of saying NO to overfilling your plate. Your calendar doesn’t have to be a work of art, but it can help!
Dancing, walking, hopping, skipping, or jumping—all movement is good! Summer is so kind, it gives you more daylight so you can go for that walk you considered all day. Go for a run in the morning or visit the gym in the evenings. Jump on YouTube and do a dance workout or yoga class!
5. Read a Book
There are some really good books out there for you to get totally lost in. Plus, reading is just one of the best ways to open up your mind and to learn new things.
