Summertime and the livin’ is easy. Hot weather and long days can make for some of the best days of the year. Here are some fantastic ways to make the most of this golden season:
Keep cool – Staying out of the sun and heat is good for your health and skin, even if you’re vigilant about applying sunscreen. Spend sometime in air-conditioned places; how about an afternoon of retail therapy at the mall, or catching a flick at the local movie theatre?
Get wet – You can also stay cool near the water. If you’re lucky enough to know someone with a pool, why not take a dip? There are also sports exclusive to summertime like skimboarding, surfing, sailing, and this season’s hottest sport, stand-up paddling (also known as paddle surfing). Change up your workout routine by taking lessons in one of these activities.
Smell the roses – If you live anywhere with cold winters, you can especially appreciate the joys of being outdoors. Spending time in your local park, a botanical garden, or your own backyard is the perfect opportunity to find stillness and peace.
Get lost… in a book – Books and summertime are so connected we even named a whole genre of stories after them: the beach read! Even during your commute or your lunch hour, you can escape the daily doldrums and enjoy a good yarn. And nothing beats the ultimate indulgence of reading by the lake or lying on the sand.
Celebrate summer as much as you can. Like any season, the daily demands of professional, family and social life can take away from your own time. Free up time for you. Whether you’re relaxing at home or doing yoga on the beach, sport a Carole Martin bra, the second-skin bra, for ultimate comfort and freedom.
