Sun filled days, hot nights…vacation season has arrived and not a moment too soon. The slower pace and relaxed atmosphere afforded by summer is also the perfect mid-year point to reflect and recharge for the second half of the year.
I recently stumbled across a great exercise to reflect on how you personally recharge during the summer months and then incorporate these learnings into the remainder of the year. While on vacation this summer (or even over a long weekend) take a few minutes each day to list what you do to fill your endless hours of time. Then reflect on the activities you gravitate towards when recharging. Do you work out, visit museums, spend time in the garden? Once you’ve reflected on this list start incorporating these activities into your daily life. This is such a simple, personalized way to create your own version of a well-balanced life.
