On Sunday I wrote about finding your summer sweet spot. The overlap between relaxed and inspired is a space ripe with possibility for memory making and memory keeping.
This back and forth between slowness and activity in the summer also needs a special kind of balance to make that intersection ever sweeter. It’s a mindfulness about how you’re spending time; it’s being intentional.
An intentional summer is one that fills you up without wearing you out. It feels easier because you’ve created enough space to feel prepared and transition easily.
I could share just my ideas, but so much has been written on the topic. In this post I’ve gathered a collection of favorite resources for your simple, more intentional summer.
- I love how this bucket list from Ann-Marie is a doable length.
- Shawn’s wisdom on how to plan for a slow summer is a must-read.
- In this post Janet shares a step-wise list for memory making.
- Curated lists of activities for kids always win this mom over.
- So love the encouragement to think outside the box for the summer.
- Mandi shares planning advice, including a really important lesson.
Let’s continue collecting in the comments. Share your favorite tip for cultivating an intentional summer (or a link to a great article) in the comments for this post.
