Nothing hits like reading a good book while enjoying the sunshine. Find a good book and a nice reading spot, and you are all set!

Another great way to get active this summer. Being alone in the woods or on a trail can be super relaxing and a great way to connect with nature. Also, be sure to be safe with this activity and let someone know where you are going.

No. 4 Take yourself on a shopping trip
