Happy Friday, dear readers! For those readers in the United States, happy 4th of July! I’m excited to have a three weekend, do some celebrating and relaxing, and really feel like it is summer time. In honor of summer, let’s talk a bit about focusing and a bit about relaxing so we can enjoy the summer.
I know it might sound a bit counter-intuitive to want to talk about focusing and relaxing in the same post, but I really think they have a lot in common. I enjoyed reading this article from Lifehacker, why we brag about being busy and how to regain focus, which really resonated with me. It is so important to focus, especially when we have so many deadlines to meet and different things competing for our attention. In that vein, I love the idea of asking
yourself what you can let go every day. No one likes unending to do lists and it is always nice to be able to totally take something off one’s list.
And with better focus, hopefully we’ll have some more free time and can use it to build your summer manifesto. I love the idea of a summer manifesto and have started creating one for summer. I find that time flies by so quickly that if I don’t plan out some things to do, it will be fall and I won’t have done anything! On my summer manifesto: eating outside, planting some new flowers, and doing a lot of fun reading.
I hope you have a fantastic weekend, dear readers. I’ll be back soon with more news and notes. Allons-y!
