Take care of yourself this summer

Everyone talks about winter self-care tips, but what do you do when the days finally get longer?

Every year, winter seems to go on forever. But summer is finally here bringing longer days, bright sun, holidays, festivals, concerts, BBQs and plenty of late nights. It’s easy to get carried away by the excitement, so here are some summertime self-care tips to keep your mind and body healthy during your adventures:

Relax outdoors

The long summer days present great opportunities for lounging outdoors, so make the most of it. Nature always looks so much better in the bright sunshine and the fresh air will do you good. Go for a walk, picnic, or even sunbathe for a bit. Try not to get burnt though, it’s never a good look… 

Mix up your routine

Summer is a great time for some self-improvement. Try some new exercises to get your blood pumping and stretch your muscles. Even a five-minute warm-up in the morning will improve your wellbeing. Add a glass of water to that, and it’ll boost your energy for the rest of the day. Try yoga, learn to meditate, start a journal and try that new lunch spot. Time is on your side. 

Make a home spa

A home spa is always a good addition to your beauty routine. Prepare a bubble bath, add your favourite bath salt, and light a candle or two. Put a face mask on and relax. Taking care of your body will take care of your mind too. Get a pedicure and enjoy the bright colours on your nails for the summer. You could even try changing things up with a new hair colour or style. 

Brighten your environment

Don't forget to bring some sunshine into your home. Your environment influences your mood and is important for your wellbeing. You're not the only one who needs refreshing. Have a deep clean to freshen things up. Wash your cushions, covers, and carpets. When that’s done decorate your home with seasonal colours and accessories. A happy home means happy people.

Take up a new hobby

Summer is the best time to try something new. It's also a great time for travelling and exploring. Create your summer playlist and off you go. Try biking in unexplored places around you, as well as climbing or hiking. Start writing a journal and create moments you won't forget.
