It's the middle of the year and you're probably thinking, "Are we really halfway through 2022?" You're not alone. We've all been feeling like time has been moving at warp speed this year. But we have good news: Summer is here! And that means it's time to relax, de-stress and enjoy yourself. Here are some ways to make sure your summer is one for the books:
Take some time
If you haven’t taken a vacation yet, now is the time to do so. Summer is a great time to get out and enjoy the weather, whether it’s going camping or biking or swimming, or just sitting on the beach all day. Don't forget that summer is also prime vacation time! If you haven't had enough time off this year (I know I haven't), then go ahead and take a few days off and relax somewhere beautiful with your family or friends, and don't forget about church on Sunday!
Eat healthy, stay hydrated
Water is the best thing that you can drink to stay healthy and hydrated. Drink water before you get hungry or thirsty, especially if you are going to be in a hot environment. Have a glass of water even when you don't feel like eating or drinking anything because it will help prevent dehydration and hunger headaches. The more water you drink, the less likely it will be that your body will start craving sweets or junk food!
Summer is here! It’s time to get outside and enjoy the sun. Whether you prefer a day at the beach or hanging out in your backyard, these are some great ways to relax this summer:
Enjoying the outdoors
Relaxing with family and friends
Going on vacation
Find a cool place outdoors to read your bible and pray
We hope that we have helped you find some inspiration for your summer. Summer is a time when many people get stressed out and overworked, so it’s important to make sure that you take care of yourself during this season and enjoy what it has to offer. It's very easy to get overwhelmed and stressed out. One practice I have learned that helps, is to pray scripture.
One of my favorites is:
Through His gospel, Jesus Christ provides us with an inner peace that surpasses the peace the world offers. If we look to Him with faith, we can feel peace in any circumstance. The Savior taught, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you” (John 14:27; emphasis added).
That being said, there are plenty of things that can be done during this time of year—and we want you all to go out there and explore them!
We hope you can find time to join us here at The Door CFM Church, where Jesus Christ is still changing lives.
