We’re giving you permission to take care of yourself this summer, and really celebrate life. Summer can feel like a roller coaster when you have kids. You’re managing work with activities and camps – even when it’s fun, there’s still scheduling challenges.
Summer is supposed to be light and relaxing. For us, spending time in the sun is recharging. It gives us energy. Spending time near water (even if it’s just the pool) feels like vacation.
How are you taking time for yourself this summer? Even if you’re only committed to one or two hours a week of “me” time, what matters most is how you show up. Are you giving it 100 percent of your effort? Are you really present for yourself?
Are you participating in playful activities with your kids? Waking up earlier to read or meditate? Going to bed earlier? Trying something new? Dinner with friends? Taking a break from tons of technology? Planning a staycation? Whatever it is … here’s to a self-care summer.
