For kids, summer is synonymous with fun-filled activities, swimming, and lazy days at home. School is out, schedules are tucked away, and the goal of each day is pure enjoyment. Since most adults have full-time jobs, summer doesn't have the same freedom it once did. As an adult, you need to carve out special time to join in on the fun. Here are some tips to making the most of summer.
- Set boundaries with your schedule. If possible, leave your office on time and avoid checking email once you've left for the day. Since the days are longer, plan evening activities that you'll enjoy. Eat outside on the deck, take a late night swim, or simply relax with a good book on the hammock. Make weekend time sacred; spend time with your family or do something you love.
- Get outside and enjoy the weather. Head to the beach, go on a hike, or plan a picnic with your family. Use your Brush On Block mineral sunscreen to protect your skin throughout the day. Apply in the morning before you head out and then reapply as needed with the easy, on-the-go applicator. There's nothing worse than ruining your day off with a nasty sunburn. Be sun smart and use Brush On Block every day.
- Learn something new. The summer is a great time to pick up a new hobby, take a class, or join a club. The list of possibilities is endless. Think of something you've always wanted to try but never got around to doing. You may be surprised to discover how much you love learning when it's something you're interested in.
Don't let summer pass you by without taking some time to enjoy it. If you plan ahead, you can get the most out of your weeknights and weekends. If your schedule permits, take a vacation and get away from your regular routine. Don't forget your Brush On Block!
