Summer is officially here after what for many people was a long and difficult winter. Temperatures are warm at last, sun shining bright, and air conditioners running. The time is now to enjoy the Summer and strike the right balance between relaxation and rejuvenation. Many times I've heard from clients in September, "the summer flew by, and I feel like I didn't do anything," or, "I'm so exhausted from the busy summer."
Here's how to make the most of your summer without stressing yourself out trying to do so.
- Examine your expectations. Are they realistic or unrealistic? Thinking, "I want to take three international vacations, find the love of my life, and start a new career," though ambitious, might cause more stress than anyone should handle in a three month period. Adjust expectations and make sure they are realistic and doable, and that your goals are internally motivated rather than created by external forces such as friends, family, or societal pressure.
