The summer season is coming to an end. Believe it or not, it’s almost time to put away the patio furniture and start hanging decorations in preparation of fall. But before you kiss the season goodbye, sit back, relax and bask in the warm weather while you can. Here are six ways to relax during the final days of summer:
- Hang Out on the Patio
In a few months, cold temperatures and snowy conditions will keep you inside. Take advantage of the gorgeous weather and spend some time outside on the patio. Whether at your home or favorite restaurant, retreating to the patio after a long summer’s day can provide a dose of relaxation. If you’re enjoying the space at the comfort of your own home, play some music, mix up a cocktail or crack open your favorite book for a taste of serenity.
- Go on a Nature Hike
Check out the forecast and find a sunny day with no chance of rain to go on a nature hike. Taking a hike isn’t just excellent cardiovascular activity, being outside offers natural stress relief and bring clarity to the mind. So round up a few friends or take a solo stroll down the nearest trail.
- Treat Yourself to a Spa Day
When was the last time you dedicated some time to yourself? As summer comes to a close, pamper yourself with a fresh manicure and show off in your favorite sandals. Or get a facial or back massage to really bring the zen.
- Tend Your Garden
Since summer’s almost over, you’ll be preparing to close up your garden or get ready for the next season’s harvest. Spend a day picking through your vegetables and then make a delicious meal out of your fresh produce. There’s nothing more satisfying than making a recipe from scratch.
If you want to find complete peace and relaxation, take some time away from social media and turn your phone off for one day. You’ll be surprised by how much you can enjoy your surroundings without the distraction of a digital device! Convince a group of your friends to unplug and head out for dinner and drinks to enjoy each other’s company.
- Surround Yourself With Seasonal Flowers
Whether your living room could use some new decor or you need a refresh on the porch, fill the space with seasonal flowers before fall florals are in bloom. Our summer flowers will easily brighten up your day and help you relax and enjoy the last month of the season.
