Summer is upon us folks and I don’t know about you, but I like to make the most of the season. With both the kiddo and my husband out of school for two months and not a lot of structure, we go crazy without our Summer of Intentionality aka How to Have the Best Summer Ever.
Rosie Molinary introduced me to The Summer of Intentionality years ago. The long and short of it is each summer we make a list of fun things to do, books to read and things to learn. For our family these lists give us just the right amount of structure to our time away from the school year and a chance to keep learning and growing.
— The to-do list must be FUN stuff. Things you actually want to do.
— Once your list is made, you have to actually commit them to the calendar so they will happen.
— Go into your Summer of Intentionality with the idea that this is a starting point: you can change your lists at any time and you do NOT have to complete everything on the list.
— Even if you have a full time job, you can still do a Summer of Intentionality! Your lists might be shorter than mine, but there is still time to have the best summer ever!
The intention behind this exercise for my family is so we aren’t all consumed with screen time and complaining about how hot it is every day. Instead our days are filled with fun, reading and learning.
Curious about our past Summer of Intentionality lists? You can find them here.
What do you want to do, read and learn this summer?
A class for those of us who are always putting self-care off.
In this 6 week class we will focus on self-care 101. Each week we will focus on a different area of self-care, make a plan and hold each other accountable.
This class is perfect for:
- Parents who have put self-care on the back burner because of kids.
- Women who work for themselves (and never seem to stop)
- People who put everyone else’s needs in front of their own.This class will be on-line so you can be anywhere in the world.
The sessions will be recorded and sent after each class.
