|8 Ways to Celebrate Summer Solstice
Saturday, June 21st marks the 1st official day of summer with the Summer Solstice. For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere we will be showered with the most hours of sunlight all year long.
How do you plan to Celebrate the Summer Solstice?
Here are 8 ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
1. Create Summer Healthy Habits
Summer represents a time of fulfillment. This is an excellent time check-in where you are in your life and review your daily habits.
Are my current habits helping me to achieve my highest good?
What can I add or delete from my daily life to achieve my goals?

2. Honor the Sun
If you enjoy doing yoga there is a set of exercises called Sun Salutations which you can perform. These exercises focus on your body, mind and spirit while balancing breathing, meditating and moving your body. Begin this exercise on the morning of the summer solstice and make it a daily habit going forward. For you experienced yogis aim to do 108 on the morning of the summer solstice. If you are in New York you can join fellow yogis at Times Square NYC.
3. Go Green for the Day
Check out your local farmers market, stock up on lots of fresh fruits and veggies, walk or ride your bike where you need to go for the day.
4. Power Down
Limit your technology for the day. Power down your laptop, tablet, TV. Limit your cell phone usage. No texts or social media posts. Use you phone for calls only.
5. Get Back to Nature
Go for a hike in the woods with your friends, enjoy the sounds and sights of nature, take your children berry picking, pack a picnic lunch and visit your favorite park, explore your local arboretum, go to Yoga in the Park.
6. Sit Outside & Read a Book
Summer is an excellent time to rejuvenate. Slow down and take some time to read a book on a topic you enjoy.
Are you interested in learning something new? Developing a new skill? Pick up a book on what interests you.
7. Do Something Kind for Others
Random acts of kindness are limitless, offer to grocery shop for an elderly neighbor, volunteer at your local animal shelter, bring a meal to a friend in need. There are many things you can do to help others.
8. Host a Bonfire
It’s the longest day of the year, so stay up late, watch the sunset and host a bonfire for your family & friends and celebrate the kick-off to summer.
