I can’t believe that it is the end of July already. This summer has been up and down with the weather but it is summer non the less. Summer is that time to relax, plan some adventures and just take a much needed break from our regular routines. I was googling the benefits of summer vacay before writing this blog and here are some things that I found.
Taking summer holidays or even just slowing down and changing our routine helps relieve stress and who couldn’t use that in today’s fast paced world. Nothing like floating in a boat with a fishing rod or just relaxing on the dock with a good book to recharge the soul.
Improve your mental skills! After all a well rested mind that is free of worry is often more effective and creative.
Improve your physical health! A study done in the UK found that average blood pressure of those on vacation decreased by 6%!
The opportunity to spend time with the family and strengthen those family ties.
Most of all ENJOY LIFE!!!! Find some joy, and take the time to do the things you love to do!!
So in saying that Lisa, Lorrie and I are taking the month of August off from blogs and recipes. We are taking our work load down to allow ourselves time to rest and rejuvenate for the fall. Our social media posts will begin again on Monday September 11th with our recipe. If you have any topics that you would like to see us blog about in the fall we welcome your input. So till then Happy August and Happy Holidays!!
