Make Time for Summer

Summer is Calgary’s shortest season, with only a couple of sun-filled months available for people to enjoy. So why not make the most of it? Organize your schedule and make time to get outside and soak up the vitamin D!

Plan ahead and try to spend an hour outside during the day. Whether it’s reading outside on the patio, going for a walk during lunch break, getting some gardening done, or firing up the grill, try and incorporate the outdoors in your daily schedule.

Spending some time outside can help you feel more energized and relaxed. It gives you the chance to take a break and de-stress whether or not you’re being active. The fresh air and vitamin D can have a huge impact on how people go about their day.

However, it’s one thing to plan to spend time outside each day, and another to actually follow through with that plan. It’s easy to push it to the bottom of the to-do list when life gets busy with work, unexpected plans, projects, and more. People should make the conscience effort to include outdoor time if not everyday, then at least regularly throughout the week. Pencil it into a schedule, write a note as a reminder, or jot it down on the calendar to step outside and get some fresh air.

Make the most of the warm weather while it’s here! Missing out will only lead to remorse. Going outside doesn’t have to take up a lot of time, and it doesn’t have to be a huge event. A quick walk, or even bringing work outside to do is a small change that will make a big difference.

Summer will pass you by if you don’t take the opportunity to enjoy it! [TWEET THIS!]
