Year round we all long for the carefree, sunshine filled days of summertime. It is hard to think about summer without those feel-good tingles of joy and reminiscing on fond memories. Warm weather, endless opportunities and spontaneous adventures are around every corner!
Whether you are indulging in a tropical vacation or working and spending time with family at home, summer can be as sparkling as you make it! Re-inspire yourself this summer, no matter how you choose to spend it.
Start by asking yourself these two questions… What can I do that will bring freshness to my life? What would I love?
Sometimes we forget how simple it can be to do things that we love. Bring some of your favorite aspects of summer to life by identifying what they are and planning to do them. A backyard BBQ, a special cake that your mother used to make every summer, a picnic at the park…
Imagine for a moment the first step you could take today to do something that really lights you up.
Close your eyes and envision yourself taking this first step.
Maybe it’s as easy as opening up the paper to see what events are happening locally this weekend, or putting on some music that inspires you to jump up and get your groove on. Maybe you do something spontaneous like heading out of town for the week-end with no destination in mind other than “adventure”!
Spark your imagination by looking on Pinterest for playful ideas and create a summer bucket list of fun things to do. That’s what one of my savvy Sparkle clients recently did and now she has an abundance of exciting things for her family to do all summer long.
If you don’t spend a lot of time with your friends, make this part of your summer routine to get the energy moving. Many studies have shown that oxytocin, the “feel good” hormone, is released when girlfriends get together and engage in lots of connecting and bonding.
Whatever you feel will make your summer sparkle, do it as soon as you can, and do it with people who make your heart smile!
