It’s the middle of July, your family vacation may have already come and go (or you are still waiting to go on one!). Or if you are like me, a family vacation wasn’t in the cards this summer. Oh to be a millionaire….
If your family is getting bored of the monotony that summer sometimes brings, like ours, I have 5 ways to help beat mid-summer slump!
Plan a Daycation
Whether it’s to the beach, lake or head to a nice hotel in your area and enjoy their pool. Order some fruity drinks, soak up some rays and take a dip to cool off. Escaping locally can put you in the vacation mentality all while still going home to your cozy bed at night. Best part about a daycation, you can do this with or without the kids.
Treat Yo Self!
Clothes. Fragrances. Massages. Mimosas. Fine leather goods. Treat yo self!
It can be pretty much anything that makes you feel fabulous. Get a mani/pedi, facial, do some retail therapy or pop open some champs or vino and treat yo self. A little self-pampering can do wonders to the mid-summer slump blues.
Indulge Without Guilt
If you are just sitting by the pool, relaxing by the beach or even curled up with book during nap time, there comes a point in the day where you need something sweet. I have a killer sweet tooth but have been dieting and working towards a healthier lifestyle. These Fiber One Cheesecake Bars hit the spot! I grabbed a couple boxes at my local Publix and I am seriously addicted. Just 150 calories a bar, you can indulge without all the guilt.
I can’t decide which flavor I like better – Salted Caramel or Strawberry – guess I will have to eat more to figure that one out! Be sure to head over to Publix to print out an exclusive coupon for these delish Fiber One Cheesecake Bars.
Catch a Matinee
Hit the movies to take a break from the heat or afternoon rainstorms. We have been taking advantage of the new movie theater that opened in our neighborhood and the kids have been loving it! Don’t feel like spending the dinero, curl up on the couch and binge watch some Netflix. Pop some popcorn & a comfy blanket and you are money!
Explore Your City
Your city is most likely filled with places you have never seen. So start researching and plan a fun excursion. Hit up some new local eateries, historic landmarks, museums and even nature trails. Down here in Florida there is tons to do locally, in fact, paddle boarding canals & air boat rides in the Everglades is on my list of summer to-dos.
