5 Things I want to do this Summer

 Summer is always an exciting time of year, the weather is nicer, the days are longer and I often feel more energized and motivated. Now, summer as a working girl and a former student isn’t what is used to be. There are no long months with no schedule or responsibility were you can just enjoy life and let your worries disappear, but we have to learn to be happy with what we have and try to make the most of it.

Five things to do in summer

I have made a list of things I would love to do this summer

Spend long lazy days on the beach
I’m very fortunate to have parents with a lovely house near the beach in a small village in the north-west of Spain. This year I will be flying out twice and I will make it my mission to spend as much time in the beach as possible. I just find it so relaxing and when I leave I always feel more energised.

Read as many books as I can
I do read on a daily basis going to and from work, but I only read in the tube and I find it quite restraining. I want to spend lazy days in the beach or in the park or maybe just in the sofa were I can spend hours lost in a good book.

Keep up with Pilates
I have recently started going to Pilates classes on a weekly basis and the more I go the more motivated I am to keep going. I just love the feeling I get after a class finishes and I also love that it’s not too strenuous that it leaves me out of breath but it does work your whole body and it really helps you strengthen it. But with summer holidays I am afraid that I will just get lazy, fall out of routine and stop going to classes. I will try as hard as I can to avoid that, let’s hope I can achieve it.

Get out more
I love being at home, I just do. If I could work from home I would, I just enjoy spending time at home with my cat and sometimes I do struggle to get out of the house to do anything that I am not obligated to do. This summer I want to try and enjoy the outdoors a bit more, visit parks or forest I haven’t been to before, go on long walks, try different rooftop bars… you get the point.

Wear all the summer dresses

I have always been very body conscious. I never wanted to show my arms or legs as I thought they were too fat. I still feel like my legs and arms are a bit chubby but this summer I wont let that determine what type of clothes I am going to wear. I have bought lots of summer dresses and I intend on wearing them all as often as I can. They look cute, fun and most importantly they keep me cool. Life is too short to worry about silly things, let go of your silly fears and just enjoy yourself.

  7. I always set myself a massive reading goal in the Summer but fail miserably! It's probably got to do with the fact that Summer here is sweaty and BRUTAL and I'd rather be in the ocean. I'm much more of an Autumn/Winter reader - set up on the couch under a pile of blankets, with a steaming mug of tea in hand... oh and I've always wanted to try Pilates! I love the idea of getting a good workout without sweating too much.
