Summer Self-Care Tips
Summer offers so many great activities that you need to be prepared and ready to enjoy every single moment. These super simple self-care tips can help!
Always have snacks
Food is a big deal in our house. If I’m not hungry, then you can be certain that someone else is. And what this means is that we have snacks with us, at all times. The best snacks are ones that aren’t processed and don’t need to be kept hot or cold. Fruit like apples are great or even some veggies that you can grab and go as you’re running out the door.
Other great food items to have on hand are granola bars or even some homemade fruit snacks are always a hit, too!
Don’t leave your house with sunscreen
I always have sunscreen on me at all times. Why? Because you never know when you’re going to have an epic chance to get out and enjoy the sunshine. We’ve stumbled upon parks, beaches and just trails that are worth exploring on so many of our journey’s. And luckily, I’ve been able to protect our skin and lather up from the sun rays because I’ve had a travel sized sunscreen in my purse!
Plan a new adventure every single week
Part of self-care is also challenging yourself! Use the summer months as the perfect opportunity to create some amazing memories for your family. The great part about planning an adventure is that it doesn’t have to be anything huge. Some great ideas for summer trips could be a visit to a new and interesting park, a day with inlaws or other family members or even a new drive down the coast to the beach.
So many people never plan any new trips or ideas because they feel as though they have to be some big ordeal. Wrong! Some of our best memories are the ones where we were literally right down the road!
