Summer Resolutions

Summer officially began this week, and I already realize how fleeting the season is. The days are longer, the weather is much warmer, more people go off on vacations and wear less clothing than they usually do, but I am always amazed at how little I accomplish during this time. I already feel that this summer will be different, because I began the season accomplishing more of the things I have always wanted to do. One of these is to travel to places in the United States I have never been to before, I am currently doing that.

To keep the momentum going, I plan to continue to keep myself motivated by not overwhelming myself with too many projects that will be impossible to complete.
Many people make the same mistake when they make New Year’s resolutions, and I am determined not to repeat the same mistake for the summer season. I hope to do more outdoor activities for my health and for general wellness, because working out in a basement can’t beat sweating it out in sunshine and breathing in fresh air. I have recently fallen in love with hiking again, and I want to do more of them as long as the weather stays pleasant. I think my renewed commitment to participating in more outdoor activities comes from seeing the negative effects of sedentary lifestyles on people around me. It isn’t just physical health; I believe that our mental state is a reflection of the external world around us. Summer is a great excuse for me to do this and other things that will hopefully stay with me all seasons of the year.

What new plans do you have the summer?
