Summer is fast approaching! While we’re all desperate to kick off our work shoes and run barefoot on the hot sand, we should take some time to consider what we will need in order to enjoy a comfortable and pleasant summertime.
This can be achieved by putting together a simple yet well-stocked summer kit. You will also want to make a list of fun-filled and therapeutic ideas to get the most out of the holidays.
Putting Together a Summer Kit
The hotter temperatures bring with them a whole host of mild hazards to be wary of. The increased sunshine is lovely on the skin, but too much can lead to sunburn, so stock up on a high SPF level sun cream.
Mosquitoes and other pesky bugs are bound to be on the rise, so go for a natural bug-repellent and bug-bite cream to make sure that unpleasant itches don’t become a thing.
Aloe vera cream is also great to have on hand in the case of both bug-bites and sunburns, bringing a lovely cooling relief to affected areas.
While the host of exhilarating activities that summertime brings can be very distracting, we must not forget to keep drinking water. Cocktails and energy drinks don’t count! If you live in a very hot area, dehydration is a major concern, so make sure to stock up on your favorite bottled water and keep your body summer fit.
The Summer Harvest
Along with summer comes the rare and delightful range of sensational seasonal fruits. You really do not want to miss out on the bounty at hand, which includes super ripe and juicy raspberries, peaches, blueberries, cherries and, of course, watermelon. There is nothing better than sharing a huge watermelon on the beach with friends and family. You might also find yourself bringing the summer fruits to your smoothie or cocktail selections!
Sunny Summer Flowers Galore
This one is for the sunshine lovers with green thumbs. Let us now consult our horticultural manuals to see which flowers are best planted during this season.
The list includes marigolds, geraniums, vincas, zinnias, impatiens, and cornflowers. With such magnificent conditions abound, you will not have to put in much effort to keep these sun-loving beauties thriving all through the season.
Kick the Kids Out
Modern children seem to have a massive penchant for sitting around indoors glued to their devices. This is an acceptable digital pastime when the weather is foul but should be completely prohibited when the beaches are begging for attention.
Don’t be scared to strongly suggest that your kids go outside and enjoy the many gifts which summer brings. You can even take them to the lake, beach or countryside for an impromptu family getaway!
Make Sure to Squeeze in Some Rest and Relaxation
There’s nothing wrong with making the most out of summer, in fact, it’s mandatory. But please, make sure that you get some well-deserved rest and don’t push yourself too hard with regards to socializing and thrill-seeking.
