As spring shifts into summer, we generally turn towards the light and warmth of the sun for one of two things — relaxation and warmth or a boost of energy. Both are joyful pleasures we can dance back and forth between depending on what we need at the time.
Whether you’re in need of relaxation or a surge of energy, here are some ways you can embrace the brilliant light of warmer days and get just what you need..while also being careful not to spend too much time in the sun to protect your skin and keep the heat from tiring you out.
When you need to rest and relax:
Bask in the sun on a beach and soak in Vitamin D for a little while
Lay out in your yard with a cool glass of iced Bloom Tea
(or use it to make your own signature cocktail)
Stroll through a water garden or a botanical landscape
Float around the pool on a raft or your trendy pink flamingo
And when you need a little energy kick:
Get outside for brunch with friends or a shopping spree
Take a brisk walk in the sunshine while listening to your favorite tunes
Open your blinds and windows during the day while you work or clean house
Take a bike ride through a beautiful trail
Put on a pair of skates and have fun maneuvering around your favorite park
