Ahh the light nights, the longer days, aren’t they just the best? Long walks in the evenings, sitting outside for dinner, playing outside till late, it’s a good job we have longer days for all the fun sports, holidays and get-togethers we have planned!
Submerging your body entirely into the water to the point of weightlessness merely feels therapeutic. And during the summer, whether it’s the ocean, a river or an outdoor pool or even a paddling pool in the garden, there’s nothing quite like cooling off in the water on a hot day.
3.Drinks With Umbrellas
Sticking an umbrella in an ice-cold drink feels like an instant holiday. Add a little cherry or a slice of pineapple, and you’re so chilled out, you might as well be in the tropics.
It’s time to throw off those heavy jumpers and coats! Getting out your cotton tees, floral dresses and maxi skirts can make you feel instantly lighter on your feet, everyone looks beautiful and feels happy.
5.Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
Peaches, berries, watermelon, mmmm! Get yourself down to a farmers market and fill up on vibrant and healthy produce. Summer is the season for both sweet and savory salads and fresh, colorful foods which thankfully, are everywhere.
Speaking of great fruits and vegetables, in the summer they taste best if you eat them outdoors. Barbecues and picnics are a great excuse to get family and friends together to commune over a yummy meal!
Yes, you can eat ice cream at any time of the year, but somehow it just tastes better on a hot summer’s day and even better by the seaside.
8.Outdoor Movies and Festivals
Movie and music festivals are rife over the summer months, and they are so much fun. This kind of entertainment doesn’t happen much during colder weather, so you have to enjoy it while it lasts.
Kids are out of school, which makes summer the perfect time for family holidays. Whether it’s hiking up mountains, camping, or spending a week by a pool, this is the best time of year to go away and spend some quality time together.
Again, of course, you can read any time of the year, but there’s just something different about relaxing in the summer either on the beach or in the garden and getting a good book out. You can get stuck into an easy-to-read bit of chick lit and escape into their world, and all your troubles fade away.
