Going screen-free for a weekend or an entire vacation can be as revitalizing as a breath of fresh air. Put your phone away, turn off the TV, and get out of your house for some fresh air. You’ll be glad you did.
4: Get outside! Weather you enjoy fishing, softball, or soccer, being outside in the fresh air will cleanse your soul and refresh your mind. Try practising yoga or meditation outside to de-stress. In holistic arts, summer is a cycle that is all about robust energy and creating abundance. Use its high energy to help focus on, expand and coordinate the pieces of your life, especially those that can manifest themselves, into a new you. So get out and enjoy the fresh air!
5: Spend quality time with kids & loved ones Commit to just enjoying your life this summer. Kids pick up our attitudes. If you’re feeling stressed, they’ll be stressed. Your positive attitude will create a relaxed, happy mood in your house. Set aside some time every day to have fun with your child and loved ones. Whether it’s running through the sprinkler together on a hot afternoon, or counting the stars on a blanket in the backyard before bedtime, do at least one thing a day to connect and have fun. Remember, what matters is always how it feels, not how it looks. Your child doesn’t need a Martha Stewart activity, just a loving connection with you.

Fun Family Project: Summer Album Collect your photos throughout the summer and, in the last week, print out your favourites and make a summer album. You might want to host a celebration on Labour Day weekend where you look at the album with family and friends. Remind each other of the things that seemed like disasters at the time but are now funny (every family has some of those). This is a great project to build upon every year!
So as you head out to catch a few luxurious summer rays and get your supply of freezies ready, remember to eat well, lather up, put away your phone, get outside, and spend time with your loved ones. Have a sensational summer!
