25 reasons summer is the best season

1. Longer days provide more time for outdoor activities and adventures.

Catch a sunrise over the ocean. Stay up late to stargaze. We naturally spend more hours awake when the weather is warm.

2. Warm weather equals swimming, water sports, and beach outings.

As humans, we are drawn to water. Get splashing!

3. Fresh Foods Lead to Healthier Eating.

Locally grown fruits and vegetables are all around you. They are healthy and delicious!

4. Opportunities for travel and vacations to explore new places.

Leave your worries at your doorstep and go explore a new environment. Taking breaks in different environments can provide much-needed mental rejuvenation.

5. Soak up some culture along with your vitamin D.

Outdoor concerts, festivals, and events are in full swing. Find out what’s happening around you and then go!

6. Perfect weather for picnics, barbecues, and al fresco dining.

Fire up your grill or griddle (We LOVE our new Blackstone!). Pack a picnic of ready-made foods from the market. Bread, cheese, and wine count as dinner if you dine on them outside.

7. The sounds of children playing and laughing in the park.

School’s out, providing a much-needed break for students and teachers.

8. Beautiful sunsets and starry nights for stargazing.

10. Ice cream, popsicles, and other refreshing treats are enjoyed more frequently.

Churn your own ice cream – there’s nothing quite like it!

11. The smell of sunscreen and coconut-scented products bring back nostalgic memories.

Reminisce about good times from the past – your favorite vacations, childhood games, and the freedom you felt living fully in the moment.

Close your eyes. Focus on the sounds of summer. Feel your mind and body relax.

13. Gardens and parks are in full bloom, offering stunning natural beauty.

Take a leisurely stroll through a park or arboretum. Go slow, and really pay attention to the beauty of nature all around you.
