SUMMA, SUMMA, SUMMATIME: Better Ways To Spend The Hottest Days

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! This holiday always marks the unofficial start to the hottest days of the year. Outside of the usual summertime routines, the prettier and longer days that are now upon us should motivate us all to think outside the box!

Here are some ideas to switch things up in the heat:

GET OUT – Yes, the clubs and lounges are sure to be packed. Day parties and shopping malls will overflow with patrons and Patron, but get out on the sunny days and enjoy the simpler things. Visit family and friends; take a trip to the park, lake, or beach that’s within driving distance. Look for free concerts and festivals in your city; money is rarely a factor for fun.

GET INVOLVED – There’s no better time to volunteer, donate, and give back than the steamy summer months. School is out and vacation time is being used, so use some of that idle time to help others.

GET MOVING – More sun usually means showing more skin (wear sunscreen, people!). If you need that extra push, use the longer days to walk, run, and workout more. Eat healthier and drink more water while you’re at it.

GET INSPIRED – The year is winding up once the summer escapes us. This should be seen as a time to find your niche and hone in on your dreams. Find more culture-centered events to help get your juices flowing. Get in tune with that place of inspiration that motivates you, read and research more, and do what it takes to get inspired.

GET FOCUSED – Again with 2012 coming closer to an end, use June, July, August, and September to make of list of short and long term goals before 2013. Even if you choose to not share it with anyone else, look at it often and put all your energy into accomplishing everything on your list.

    f*ckdup life makes you sadistic c’mon let’s be realistic
    dope boys getting all the b*tches foreing car and all the riches
    so i risk my life and freedom and endure a couple stitches’
