If you find yourself overwhelmed, take a moment to check in, relax, and just breathe. Find a comfortable seat, close your eyes and listen to your breathe and let the moment pass. Summer can be lovely, but it can also be super busy, so make sure to look after yourself amidst the holiday adventures.
And all of a sudden it is August?! Where does all the time go? Don’t worry, there are at least six weeks of summer and a month left of summer holiday time to enjoy before it starts to get cold.
How do you like to beat the heat? I like to find some shade and a cool drink. It’s a great day for a refreshing salad and some delicious gelato.
When it is super sunny make sure to take care of yourself – stay hydrated and drink water, wear sun screen (or sun cream) and consider investing in a snazzy pair of sunglasses. Summer is fun and sunshine is a wonderful source of Vitamin D, but be careful out there!
Today is the longest day of the entire year, if you live in the northern hemisphere. Because the planet Earth (the one we live on) rotates around the sun on a tilted axis, certain parts of the planet get more or less sun depending on the time of year. Basically, billions of years ago, when our solar system was being formed, tons of bits of mass collided together to form mini planets, which then collided together to form proto-planets, which eventually became most of what our planet is now. Then, another pro-planet collided with the prelude to Earth and put us on our lovely little tilt which is reasonable for the seasons. Amazing! And the seasons are a big part of why life was able to flourish on our planet. Incredible how things tend to all fall into place like that!
Sometimes, you just have to be you. I hope that you all have a place or space in your lives where you can be completely and totally free.
