In the hustle and bustle of daily life, it’s easy to forget to take care of ourselves, especially when summer arrives with its warm temperatures and enticing outdoor activities.

  1. Get Outside and Enjoy the Sun: After enduring long New England winters, embrace the warmer weather with daily walks or simply soaking up the sun. Whether in your backyard, a local park, or exploring new parts of town, take time to appreciate your surroundings and recharge. Just remember to protect your skin with SPF!
  2. Explore with Friends: Need motivation to get moving? Explore parts of town or nearby areas with a friend. Discover hidden gems or treat yourselves to a reward at the end, like ice cream or ocean views. It’s a great way to stay active and enjoy the company of loved ones.
  3. Balance Adventure with Rest: While summer invites adventures and social gatherings, remember to listen to your body and slow down when needed. Whether it’s reading a book at the beach or declining an invitation to recharge, making time for yourself allows you to better enjoy the season and be there for others.
  4. Prioritize Face-to-Face Connections: Step away from social media and nurture friendships in person. Research shows that strong friendships contribute significantly to life satisfaction. Make plans to see friends regularly and enjoy meaningful conversations and shared experiences.
  5. Stay Hydrated: As temperatures rise, our bodies need more water to stay hydrated, especially with increased sweating. Keep a large water bottle handy and sip throughout the day to regulate body temperature and support brain function and mood.

By incorporating these tips into your summer routine, you can ensure that you’re taking care of yourself while making the most of the season’s opportunities for fun and relaxation.
