May this summer be full of adventure, positivity, and self love.

11 Things You can Do to practice self-love this summer

Many of our summer bucket lists will include trips to the beach, amusement parks, or even a summer romance. However, I hope that this summer is filled with moments that make you feel grateful to be alive. I hope that you find extreme joy in the tiniest of moments. Here's a list of things to do this summer that can make the next three months a time of extreme self love.

1. Watch the sunrise

Something so simple can be a great way to start your morning. Make sure it's a clear morning and you can see the sky turn different shades of orange and pink. Start your day thinking of things that you're thankful for.

2. Visit a local animal shelter or pet store.

Puppies... enough said.

3. Do something you've really wanted to do but was scared of what people would think.

Whether its a piercing, a new haircut, creating your own blog, or anything else you've wanted to do for a long time: nows the time to do it. If people are true friends, they will support what makes you happy.

4. Forgive

If theres someone who wronged you, try to find it in you to forgive them. Its easier said then done, but forgiveness can be the most relieving thing. It will free you.

5. Try something new

Maybe theres a new hobby you were thinking of taking up but never found the time to.

6. Try journaling

Writing down how you feel can be extremely therapuetic and help you express emotions that are harder to say out loud. If anything, write down things that happened that day that made you happy.

7. Find a locally owned shop to go to

Local farmers markets, boutiques, and art stores have many hidden gems that we often miss. Try checking one out!

8. Create a playlist, put your headphones in, and go for a walk.

Get your exercise and clear your head. Drown out the world and listen to some of your favorite songs.

9. Surround yourself with good people

Life is all about the relationships we make. Surround yourself with friends and family who make you feel good. Never take them for granted.

10. Unfollow negative people on social media

Because looking at their posts only hurts you.

11. Look into your zodiac sign

Maybe zodiac signs aren't your thing, but you may be surprised by how many of the qualities and personality types line up. Research your sign, your moon sign, who you're compatible with, etc.

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation. It was the yearly benchmark announcing the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacation. It meant I was one step closer to regattas, swim meets and tennis matches.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.
