3 Ways You Should Spend The Summer Solstice
The longest day of the year occurs when one of the Earth's poles has its maximum tilt towards the sun. If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, it's coming up this Sunday, June 20th. Marking the first "official" day of summer, this weekend will be the perfect time to celebrate new beginnings and set the mood for the season ahead.
Here are 3 rituals to help do just that:
Take a nature walk.
With the sun at its highest peak, nature enters a period of effervescence — think flowers in full bloom and lots of baby animals. Plan an activity where you can enjoy all the wonders nature has to offer, such as a hike, cool dip in a river, or a leisurely walk through a nearby forest reserve. If you're feeling social, pack a picnic and dine alfresco, bringing in the season with friends and loved ones.
The summer solstice is fantastic for recharging our energy and getting started on new projects! Journaling is an incredible way to get your goals clear and manifest inspired action. Pull out your favorite journal and something to write with, then relax with an iced tea in the sunshine. Write down 5 things you wish to achieve this summer — spending more time at the beach definitely counts!
As the days heat up, you know the drill: hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! It's not only the temperature that dehydrates us in summer, but also chlorinated pools, sun exposure, and sub-zero air conditioning!
While drinking water and eating well is important, it's important to add moisture to our skin as well. 707 Flora's Daily Moisturizer is carefully formulated with high-performance hemp cannabis for daily hydration without feeling sticky or greasy. Use 707 Balm throughout the day to hydrate lips, cuticles, and dry spots. After a day of being exposed to the elements, such as a beach day, use Moisture Matrix at night for a softer, smoother complexion come morning.
