This is me in one of my happy places, Akumal Mexico. Self care does NOT always (even mostly) look like this for me, but that's not stopping me!
IT'S SUMMER TIME! Bright skies and warm weather days are HERE. Something about this season just uplifts the corners of my lips a little extra.
If you're like me and everything feels a little more easy breezy in the summer time, it's easy to forget about self care. Don't worry, sister. I put down 11 fun + simple (plus free or cheap!) ways to sprinkle self care in flawlessly during the warm weather, like a topping on the perfect fro-yo.
CREATE YOUR OWN SUNSHINE.
Scroll down for 10 self care ideas during summer months!
1. UP YOUR WATER INTAKE + MAKE IT DELICIOUS
A GREAT habit to shift focus on for the summer is upping your water intake (bonus points if you carry this into the fall + winter seasons!). Drinking more water has positive impacts on ALL areas of our lives including allowing you to feel more energetic, curbing your appetite, preventing dehydration, fueling your organs + cells and SO. MUCH. MORE. Did you know that by the time your body begins to feel thirsty, you are ALREADY under-hydrated?
So set a goal for drinking more H2O and have at it (I've always found it best to just DIVE into my increased water goal ... day 1 all in!). Make your water even more delicious by infusing it with fruits and herbs!
