Hi, it’s Anna from Anna’s Eats. Summer is my favorite time of year! I can’t get enough of it and always try to enjoy it to the fullest since hot summer days don’t stick around for long in New England.
Remember when a summer day meant playing outside ALL day? Riding bikes, building forts, going to the playground, running under the sprinkler feeling the grass between your toes, ahh good memories huh?
These days I find myself sitting at my desk with Goosebumps because the air conditioner is on full force at work. Does anyone else have that problem? I sometimes feel like I need to go outside during lunch just to defrost myself!
My FUN summer tidbit is to spend an entire day outdoors so you get that sleepy feeling at the end of the day from breathing in so much fresh air and soaking up the sun. And, no e-mail checking allowed! What made those days so great was being in the moment with nothing to do but ENJOY the day. Whether you spend the day in the sun at the beach, sitting under a tree reading a book at the park, riding your bike or watching a baseball game it will bring back that carefree summer feeling!
Don’t be afraid to get enjoy the day to the fullest. You are supposed to get a little sand under your toenails!
I recently went to a baseball game on a warm, sunny day. Instead of rushing out with the crowd at the end of the game I waited for the crowd to leave. This way I was able to enjoy the atmosphere and the fresh air for a little while longer.
