Berry Galore Healthy Bowl


It’s June already! Can you believe it? How CRAZY is that?

Seems like we went directly from winter to summer, skipping Spring altogether!

Time is passing by way too fast. I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely planning on slowing down to be able to take it all in, and really savor the sunshine and warm weather. I have to. I spend way too much time complaining about winter, to not fully take advantage of summer! (My husband would definitely widely-eyed nod at that statement.)

To take full advantage of the sun, and to give my body as much vitamin D as I possibly can, I have compiled a list of “must do’s” with fun summer actives. I am sharing it with you, in case you are in need of ideas for yourself and your family. I hope this list inspires you to get out, be adventurous, and try something new!

My Summer Must-Do’s:

  • Hike every other week (trying a different route every time!)
  • Run a 5k (or 10k) outside on the weekends.
  • Go camping at a new place with friends.
  • Go sailing.
  • Take a golf lesson.
  • Visit a town nearby.
  • Visit the farmer’s market to get fresh produce.
  • Take long walks after dinner on workdays.
  • Try new coffee shops/restaurants, sitting on their outdoor patios.
  • Go swimming (at a pool, lake or ocean.)
  • Find a friend who wants to tan and tan with them (while listening to summer hits and drinking a few fun cocktails — why not?)
  • Go watch outdoor tennis matches or practices.
  • Have a romantic picnic by a lake.
  • Go on bike rides with my honey.
  • Help a gardener with her garden.
  • Find a serene spot at the park, spread a blanket and read a book.
  • Invite people for fun BBQs on the patio.
  • …more items might be added to this list in the near future… 😉

See? Lots to choose from — lots to do! I would love to hear what your own fun summer “must do’s” look like, so please be sure to share with me on the comments below!
