I know Spring has basically just arrived, but summer is just around the corner and I for one am looking forward to the change of seasons once again. Spring is good and I enjoy it greatly, but summer is the absolute best.

1. Reading a book takes on a new meaning

I love curling up on my couch with a good book, but I love laying out by the pool in the sun with a good book is even better.

2. Tanning

There is something relaxing about the laying out in the sun trying to tan your skin; the smell of the chlorine from the pool and the sunscreen has a calming effect. Plus, I don’t know about anyone else but I look sickly when I’m pale, so I look forward to that as well.

3. You suddenly have the motivation to run

With the sun being out and you actually being able to feel the warmth it provides now, you will spend as much time soaking it in as you can; even if it means going on a run.

4. You may find yourself getting up earlier

If you go on a run then you don’t really want to do that during the heat of the day unless you want to be truly miserable. That leaves you with two options: go around sunset or go earlier in the morning.

5. You want to leave your apartment

It’s so nice outside, why would you want to stay inside?

6. You drink more water

The sweltering heat makes you dehydrated so you drink more water without thinking about it.
