The longest day of the year recently passed, and I’m feeling overwhelmed!

Summer is the season that I dream about during extended Minnesota winters, but when summer actually arrives I’m reminded that it’s so much busier than my romantic January daydreams would have me believe. With summer schedules breaking normal routines, different areas of my life are mingling together and its a muddy mess!

How are you hanging in there? Can you relate?

I think a healthy dose of perspective might snap me out of my summer slump. One thing that I miss when it’s cold out is the ability to walk outside without putting on a winter jacket, hat, socks, etc.

With this in mind, I’m going to try to take a 10-minute walk every day this week and pay special attention to what the sun on my shoulders feels like so that I can store away the memory for when it gets cold again. 

What are you doing to take care of yourself?

I hope you are relishing the joys of the season and stockpiling all of the sunshine that you can!
