The dog days of summer are finally here. Those lazy, hazy days of relaxing under a shade tree sipping a cool iced tea are some of the best days of the year!
It’s these experiences that fill our life with precious memories, which will last a life time.
The focus of summer should be about your experiences, relationships and engagement with the season’s bounty of warmth, sunshine and long summer days.
Leave the stuff behind, indoors where it’s been kept all year long and it will all be waiting for you when fall and winter arrive once again.
Engage your spirit with a focus on your health, nutrition and outdoor activities.
Nurture and build long lasting, mindful relationships with your family, friends and colleagues. Attend picnics, outings, social and professional events with one another to foster togetherness and meaning in your lives.
Plan on having fun this summer! Make and schedule time for recreation and entertainment. Walk to a local concert in the park. Remove your shoes and walk through freshly mowed grass or feel the splish splash of the lake water and sand between your toes. Drop a fishing line into the pond… you don’t even have to bait it. Relax under the shade of big tree reading your favorite summer book.
Seize the summer! It’s fleeting and it’s important to remember all your stuff, your things, possessions and material goods don’t hold as special meaning as the experiences of summer!
