Summer is a time of fun and relaxation, but it can also bring stressors that can take the joy out of the season. With vacations, social events, the kids out of school, and the warm weather, stress can build up and significantly impact your mental health this time of year.
Here are some tips for managing summer stressors so you can make the most out of the upcoming season.
Summer is a great time to step away from your daily routine and take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Take a day or two to just relax and enjoy the summer weather. Whether it’s a staycation or a trip somewhere new, taking a break can help you refocus and recharge.
Also, remember that you don’t have to take a vacation to catch a restful break. There are plenty of ways to step back and take a mindful break that helps you hit ‘reset’.
The summer months can be a great time to get organized and tackle projects lingering on your to-do list. Set aside time each week to tackle a project and stay on top of your tasks. This will help reduce stress and ensure you don’t miss anything important.
In addition to organizing your physical space, remember to organize your schedule. Many parents face work/life challenges when their kids are out of school for the summer. Take the time to set reasonable expectations and ask for help when you can.
Prioritize Your Time
With everything going on during the summer, it can be easy to get overwhelmed when you don’t have a plan. To help manage it all, make a list of your priorities and focus on those items first. This will help keep you on track and reduce stress.
Before you can successfully prioritize your time, you need to know what your goals are. Take some time to write down your short-term and long-term goals and think about how you can break them down into smaller tasks. Be realistic about your time and exceptions so you don’t overdo it.
