It’s official, summer has arrived! Finally, sunny days filled with fresh air, spending time with loved ones, traveling, barbecues, beaches, pools, you name it, there are endless summertime activities. Hello summer, we’ve been waiting for you!
We all know that 2020 has been quite a year. Finally, summer is upon us and we can chill and unwind. It’s time to detox your mind, body, and soul. Let’s get you feeling restored, rejuvenated, and help reduce any stress because let’s face it, we all experience those unwanted feelings sometimes. With summer in full swing, the heat has been turned up and it’s time to chillax!
The best way to destress is with tiny self-care habits. Try taking a hot bubble bath and unplug from your electronics. Focus on self-care and self-love with aromatherapy candles, relaxing music, inspiring wellness magazines, journaling or by using calming essential oils like lavender or rose. A little tip if you have trouble sleeping, a few drops of lavender oil on your wrist or sprayed on your pillows will help you get the beauty sleep of your dreams.
Another calming must-have for the bath is salt, and not just the kind we put on the table. If you could use a little more positivity in your life right now, Epson salt could help you out. This soothing aroma will be sure to loosen your muscles, aches or knots in the body. Try exfoliating your body for smooth skin. Use anything that makes you feel good because you deserve this moment.
When you’re not vacationing at an exotic “tropicool” location and sitting by the pool all day waiting for your fruity frozen drink with a little umbrella, you can bring cocktail hour to the homefront. Call your girls and make a night of making those refreshing cocktails you love at your favorite bar or dream of recreating from Pinterest. Think seasonal by working with your favorite summertime fruits, like a citrus campari sour or a watermelon sangria. And be sure to make your cocktail aesthetically pleasing so you can share your recipe and cocktail inspo on the gram. Make a drink that’s Instagram worthy and super delicious! And don’t forget to pair it with a neon straw to give your masterpiece that extra flare.
After you’ve gotten the alcohol out of the way, make a date with yourself to chill and unwind in a more holistic way. Easy way to start is by setting an intention, mantra, word or sentence to focus on each day. You can write this down on a piece of paper and put it somewhere where you’ll be constantly reminded of your purpose. You can even write it on your bathroom mirror with your favorite lipstick or on a beautiful notecard and leave it on your nightstand. So no matter what your day looks like, with an intention, you will always have something to come back to and focus on.
When was the last time you let your inner hippy out? Channel your free spirit and flower power with Freedom Moses as we celebrate the Summer of Love. In 1967, thousands of young people from across the United States flocked to San Francisco’s Haight Ashbury district to join the hippie experience. So, why not honor the Summer of Love with a pair of Hendrix slides?
Speaking of Jimi Hendrix, why not create the ultimate summer retro playlist with all your favorite songs? It’s always nice to have that go to music you can play when you just want to chill and unwind. Since music festivals will have to wait this summer, you can still have a backup system powered by Spotify, YouTube, or wherever you may stream your music.
Nothing rings in the summer quite like a pool party. Now, this might be an obvious summertime activity, but that’s because good things never go out of style! Grab your favorite summer pool essentials so you can fully chill and unwind, make a splash at the pool or have fun in the sun! Make time to relax with friends and cruz by the poolside.
Regardless of what you do this summer, make the most of it and make sure you chill unwind! Have fun and cherish every moment. And don’t forget to buy sandals online to enhance your summer experience one step at a time.
