Ways To Welcome Summer
This week is the Summer Solstice, which means that the longest day of the year is upon us — and that the earth will be slowly rotating back toward darkness from now until December. Luckily, it also means that summer is here!
For most people, there is
a joy to summer that has its roots in childhood — in the awesome freedom that
came with summer vacation. Even as adults, the extra daylight gives us more
time to play, explore, and enjoy the day. This is the time to enjoy sunlight,
embrace physicality in all its forms, and indulge yourself.
This week, let’s look at some exciting summer activities and talk about how we can make the most of the coming season.

“Pull up a chair. Take a taste. Come join us. Life is so endlessly delicious.”
― Ruth Reichl
One of the best things about summer is the food. This is a great time to cook outdoors, share meals, and come together. Food has always been one of the most foundational ways that people connect and bond with each other, and it allows both families and friends to enjoy time together. Now more than ever, make an effort to share food, form communities, and create memories.

“I live in New York and it’s the greatest city, but sometimes I want to move to the place with the porch and the lemonade and the farm.”
― Leelee Sobieski
Summer is hot, and the best way to cool down is to stay hydrated. Get yourself something nice and cold to sip on. Even if you’re not into cocktails, summer is the perfect time to play around with flavors. You could experiment with making your own fruit juice, or maybe just stop by a lemonade stand if you pass one. Today, take a little bit of time and let yourself enjoy something sweet and unique.

“Ô, Sunlight! The most precious gold to be found on Earth.”
― Roman Payne
The sun — it’s the celestial body to which all of humanity is inexorably tied. It provides for us by nourishing the earth. In astrology, the sun represents the physical, the tangible, and the masculine. It emphasizes action, and it highlights the importance of doing new things and experiencing all that the world has to offer. Summer more than any other season encourages us to harness this magnificent energy and use it to our benefit. Bask in the sun’s warmth, and enjoy your connection to the Universe.

“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”
― Henry James
This is a wonderful opportunity to go outside and connect with nature. Whether you’re exploring the beach, the woods, the mountains, or even your own backyard, putting your feet to the earth and your face to the sky is healing, grounding, and calming. The exact way you do it is up to you, but connecting with nature can be extremely helpful to your mental health. Today, try and find some time to enjoy the outdoors.

“And as ridiculous as it may sound, sometimes all any of us needs in life is for someone to hold our hand and walk next to us.”
― James Frey
One of the best things about summer is that many people use this time to come together. It may be for adventures, parties, meals, drinks, or even outdoor walks. The reason doesn’t matter as much as the fact that something about the warm weather brings people closer to each other. This is a great time to focus on community. It could be fun, and it will help you create strong ties with the people around you, allowing you to form a net of mutual support that everyone can benefit from. Kindness goes a long way these days, so be sure to share your good fortune if you can.

“’Come with me,’ Mom says. ‘To the library. Books and summertime go together.’”
― Lisa Schroeder
Reading can be an enjoyable pastime. During summer, you can curl up outside with a good book and the sun on your back. Of course, some people prefer to paint, and others may enjoy manning the grill, among many other potential activities. It doesn’t matter what exactly you find fulfilling — just find some space to enjoy yourself this week. Even if work is busy, and even if you already have plans, it’s important to make time for yourself too.

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”
― John Lubbock
Rest can be difficult, and learning to slow down and take a break can be extra tough if you have a complex health situation. Nonetheless, it’s an important, and arguably lifesaving, lesson to learn. Even if things are picking up speed and you have your own goals that you’re pushing toward, don’t forget to take breaks. You need to check in on yourself occasionally. Focus on how you’re feeling. Make sure that you’re connected to your body and mind, as well as the world around you.
