5 ways to kick off your best summer yet!

You’ve been counting down the days — and summer has finally arrived! How will you spend it? We have five ideas to kick off your summer season:

Plan a stay-cation

Everyone loves a summer getaway, but a week-off at home can do wonders for your mental health (and your budget!). Use this extra time to tackle the projects you keep putting off – clean the garage, organize your closet or paint the living room. Crossing small items off your to-do list will feel great, when you return to your weekly grind. summer

Book some “me time”

Life gets busy. When you spend most of your time and energy helping others, it’s easy to lose focus on yourself. Schedule some alone time this summer to decompress and recharge. Read a book. Go for a walk. See a movie. Make your happiness a top priority.

Plant some veggies

A healthier diet feels great! Clean eating is simple, when the ingredients are right in your own backyard. June is the perfect month to begin prepping your fall vegetable garden. Plant zucchini, squash, cucumbers, carrots and more. When they’re ready to harvest, browse our recipes for some delicious cooking inspiration.

Stay active outdoors

Break away from your traditional gym routine, and soak up the sunshine. Warmer weather means more opportunities outdoor exercise. Go biking, kayaking, hiking or swimming. Find a fitness activity that’s less work and more fun.

Try something new

Explore your adventurous-side, and discover what else makes you happy. Try a new hobby. Taste a new food. Travel to a new city. Don’t be afraid to be bold and break out of your shell.

Summer goes by fast! So, make it count. Look for ways to stay happy and healthy all season long.
