We’re entering that period of summer where things slow to an even lazier pace. The lull before the big ‘back to school’ frenzy. I’ll admit, the copious Halloween displays in Micheal’s threw me when I popped in for some art supplies the other day.
It’s the perfect time to recharge the batteries.
If you feel like summer is passing you by, now’s the time to check in, perhaps regroup, and define what you want the rest of your summer to look and feel like.
Here’s my list:
- Spend as much time outside as possible and savor nature. (That pic is from my view when I visit the Farmer’s Market; always take time to read or just sit after I do my shopping).
- Play in Myrtle Beach for a week.
- Break out my roller blades, bike or golf clubs (or all of the above) and mixup my daily movement practice.
- Take some time to wander. Maybe a visit to the NY Botanical Gardens or a day in NYC.
- Button up fall planning. I prefer coming through Labor Day with a clear picture of projects, workshops and other major commitments. As I write this, I’m taking my third summer writing retreat and mapping out blog posts for most of the rest of the year.
- Take time off from my weekly newsletter and blogging. Post a blog only when the spirit moves me.
Last week’s Marie TV from one of my mentors Marie Forleo reminded me of the importance and value of slowing down, unplugging and taking time to recharge.
How will you make sure summer doesn’t pass you by? What’s on your list?
