Summer of Happiness

There is nothing better than the first really warm day of the year that ushers in the presence of summer. Summer is the season that most everyone looks forward to all year long and it sometimes feels like it takes forever to arrive, but once it’s here, you never want it to go.

There is just something about summer that makes it the sweetest time of the year. From the warm heat to the fresh produce to the laid back feel in the air, summer is arguably the best time of the year.

One of the best advantages of this particular season is the incredible free time that comes along with it. The kids are out of school and the sun lingers around for longer to be enjoyed by all. There is so much happiness to be had in the simple pleasure of seeing kids out riding their bikes, playing at the pool or beach and enjoying popsicles.

Even if you’re not a kid, it is so important to get out there and be a kid again! It will boost your mood and is likely to throw a positive spin on your life outlook.

The warmer weather is an incredible mood-lifter and a fantastic excuse to get outside and enjoy life! The activities in summer are endless. From water sports to bike rides to hikes to lazy days at the pool, summer is a fantastic bounty of fun. In places that typically experience a harsh, dreary winter, summer represents an eagerly-anticipated freedom to get outside and enjoy life.

Summer’s amazing weather finally lets people get outside and enjoy the warmth of our precious sun and enjoy activities that the heat makes possible. Use a sports authority promo code to save on all of your summer outdoor equipment.

Winter and fall can be so melancholy because of the looming gray skies and torrential downpour, so when summer comes, even the way we cook changes. We throw more barbeques, more parties, and thus, our social lives improve. We are spending more time with people enjoying a fun activity, which leads to a greater satisfaction in life.

The more we can decrease our stress, invest in meaningful relationships and nourish our whole person, the healthier we will be, and summer is most definitely the best time for that!

  1. I’m born in summer, so I love the heat and the green all over the place, and of course that I dread winter (apart from Christmas :)).

    Can’t wait to hit the swimming pool, so yes summer is the season of being optimist!

      Me, too. Christmas is nice, but on the whole trading away the warmth of Christmas seems to have left us with the short end of the stick.

  2. The other day I came across this funny quote by James Dent “A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.” All this is very true.
    Summer definitely is the best season… it makes you more optimistic and positive thoughts are more likely to come up. Enjoy the summer!

  3. I’m a summer child too, the best time of the year! 🙂 Love running on gras, your bare feet touching the gras or sand. I remember when I lived in Germany everyone was so bright and full of shine, it also meant the days were the longest of the year and we could spend time outside up until 9pm. Now, here in Australia it gets dark at around 6pm in summer. But it still is the nicest season in my opinion.

  4. A clear, bight sunny day with a slight breeze is so refreshing, it makes me feel cleansed!
