Season of Summer
Enjoy this season of summer. Summer typically marks a time of joy, fun, and relaxation — a time of freedom. Unfortunately, the persistent COVID-19 virus may continue to dampen your summer spirits. Not to worry. Read below to discover ways that you can make the best out of this season of summer. Create your own sense of normal.
Season of Summer: Anxiety & Fear
Anxiety appears as we transition from sweatpants, kitchen tables, and home devices to suits, office commutes, and in-person team meetings. Additionally, fear persists as COVID-19 variants emerge, and personal-, corporate-, or governmental-imposed restrictions constantly change.
Relief & Joy
Remind yourself that resilience reigns. Take small, positive steps and get back to work and back to play. Don’t worry if last year’s pants don’t fit. Buy new ones or borrow a friend’s. Find joy in the simple things and feel relieved in knowing that this too shall pass.
Things to do this summer
- Celebrate during a family reunion
- Visit loved ones and old friends
- Hang out on the beach
- Exercise outdoors
- Take care of your mental health
- Remain resilient
Alternatively, you might want to take Bobby McFerrin’s approach and “Don’t worry. Be happy.”
Practice mindfulness and focus on the present. Talk with loved ones, meditate, exercise and sleep. Get vaccinated, if you can, and spread joy this season of summer!
