Hello there friends!

Summer is right around the corner and that means it’s the perfect time to prepare for summer. I don’t think you have to change a whole lot to be ready for summer.

However, I do think it’s good to spend 1 day or just one evening doing a few things. By spending time/energy/money on these things, you will be more than ready for the sun to start shining more!

Summer is my favorite season. It’s not necessarily the time itself that makes it so amazing. It’s just the fact the the sun is shining brightly, people are happy (at least they seem to me) and nature is full of green plants and flowers.

I personally don’t think it can get any better than this. 😉 To be honest, I don’t think you need more than the sun to make you happy and be ready for the summer.

However, we do need to make sure we get the most out of summer! I don’t want this to stimulate your stress levels, though. I just believe that we need to take in all the energy the sun gives us to make sure we survive the rest of the year (until the next summer) 😊

Okay, let’s stop talking (/writing) and get started!

Focus = Energy = Growth

The first thing we need to clarify is what we are going to focus on this summer. I think this will help you get the most out of this summer!

So you need to find something you want to focus on this summer. This is for example the perfect time to learn a new hobby. You can learn new cooking skills, or learn how to sew. This is something I want to focus on this summer. I plan on sewing linen pants, I’ve already bought a fabric!

About 1,5 years ago I wrote a blog post about some hobbies you can try out. It’s really small and bad, but if you are desperate for inspiration, you can check it out.

Create lists 🖊️

Without a daily to-do list, I don’t get anything done. I need to write somewhere down what I need to do, whether that’s on my phone or a notebook.

Based on my own experience I’ve noticed that creating lists helps me get things done. But it also helped me clear out all my ideas. This way it’s easier for me to focus on 1 (or a few things).

Sometimes I want to do 10 projects at the same time. And you can guess it… In the end I don’t get anything done.

I love sitting in the sun and creating these lists! I like creating lists of little things like clothes I plan on wearing in the coming week. But you can also write down what you are going to eat for dinner or what you are going to need for a picnic.

The anticipation is often just as much fun!

I like to create lists in my notebook. I for example write down what events I am excited for this summer. So it’s not really a checklist, but more of a bucket list. I will go deeper into this if you scroll down…

Create a Bucket List

A very important list to create every summer is called: The Bucketlist!

Depending on your needs and budget you can create a bucket list full of things you want to do this summer.

Here is some inspiration of things to put on your bucket list:

Visit a lake/sea

Go stargazing

Read a book

Take a bike ride

Go to a museum

Create a new playlist & explore a new genre.

Check out my new R&B playlist from the 90s!

Plan a vacation/trip

What is a summer without a vacation?

I think everyone deserves to get a little vacation once a year. I understand that sometimes the budget is not there for it. Then I would suggest trying to hustle a little bit of money and spend it on a small trip. You deserve a little reset time!

Looking back at all the vacations I’ve had in my life, I am very thankful for them. I have so many amazing memories in my own country and in other countries in Europe.

I love to get out of your own city and go somewhere else. Even if it’s just visiting another city for just 1 day. You get out of your rhythm!

Clean your wardrobe

Time to get those dresses out of your closet!

Get rid of the thick winter coats and store them in the attic. And look through all your summer clothing pieces you own.

What are you most excited to wear this summer? Create outfits with those pieces.

You can also create a capsule wardrobe! I’ve never tried this. But maybe it’s time to give it a try this summer 🙂

So that’s it for today, I hope you found this to be helpful and I wish you an amazing summer!!

May our souls meet again!
