It’s summer. Yippee. Run to the hammock and let’s play a game. I want you to lie back and relax into thinking about something you want to accomplish this summer. Here’s the sentence.
Fill in the blank:
“This is the summer I want to ...”
What? Name your heart’s desire. Keep it clean. Think about your own well-being.
Want to run a 10k? (Great for the body.)
Learn to play guitar? (Good for the brain.)
Meditate for 15 minutes a day? (Marvelous for equanimity and everything else.)
You know my theory: When the seasons change, so can we. In summer especially, we tend to take more time for ourselves, play more and have more fun. If you’re ready this summer, you can create new habits and attitudes that make your life richer and riper.
