Summer is here!
And that can mean a lot of things. What’s it mean to you?
On one hand, summer can mean getting out in the sun, taking time off from work, having fun with friends and family. Getting some rest and relaxation. Vacation!
Summer can also be challenging. Like if don’t have any time off from work. Or if you have downtime, but no one to enjoy it with. And then the money thing.
While summer can be a time of fun, that can mean additional pressure you place on yourself, or that pressure from others. Higher expectations to get out there and enjoy yourself when you may not be feeling it. Feeling more connected with people, or feeling more isolated.
We don’t all react the same to heat and sunshine. Some people are energized by the hot weather. Others find it draining.
Self-care routines may need to be modified to accommodate the demands of summer, including knowing when to say “enough” or even “no.”
Good memories. Not so good memories. New memories to create?
So what’s summer looking like for you? Looking forward to getting TO it? Or getting THROUGH it?
What are you doing to take the best possible care of yourself? Your physical health? Your emotional health?
Any plans to share? Need some support?
I’m looking forward to connecting with you!
