I’ll say it quietly, but…I think summer might be just around the corner. At least, it’s beginning to feel like summer isn’t so far away! That’s good news for those people who love summer, bad news for those who love summer but aren’t quite ready for it. But don’t worry: you still have some time to get yourself prepared for a summer of BBQs, parties, sunshine, and fun! Here are five things you can do to make sure it’s a summer to remember.
Hit the Gym
You can’t be hitting the beach when you’re still carrying some of that winter weight! It’s time to start a morning running routine, evening workout program, and healthy eating for the times in between. If it’s been awhile since you’ve been working out, then take a look at some beginner workout routines and start slowly. You can always build up. Start now and your body should be toned and good to go once the hot weather finally arrives.
In the Wardrobe
How are the threads? It’s time to put the winter and spring wardrobe to one side for the time being and get your summer clothes in there. If your summer wardrobe is looking a bit bare, then you’ll have to take a trip to the store. The good news is that doesn’t take much to put together a few outfits that’ll have you looking sharp through the warm weather season. Pick up two or three pairs of shorts, t-shirts, shirts, shoes, and accessories, and you’ll have enough clothing to keep things looking fresh.
During the cold weather months, we’re all mostly hidden behind layers of clothing, beards, and warm hats. There’ll be nothing to cover you up in the months to follow! Make sure you’ll show up nicely in the bright sunshine by taking a trip to your dentist and barbers. Having your teeth looking pearly white and a short haircut will keep you looking trim and ready to impress wherever you find yourself this summer. All you’ll need is a tan (it’ll come), and you’ll look as good as can be.
What’s Hot, What’s Not
Pfft, who wants to wait to be told what the summer’s hottest trends, music, and events are? Brush up on the latest and best cultural hits before summer, and you’ll be a trendsetter. Load up your phone with the best summer tunes, and you’ll be able to impress your friends and onlookers with the songs you’ll be listening to throughout summer.
Plans, Plans, Plans
The fine weather is nice, but let’s be honest: summer is all about getting out into the world and living! If you want to be having some memorable days and nights, now’s the time to start researching the best summer events and festivals. And are you planning to go overseas? That’ll have to be arranged now too. Spend a couple of evenings locking in the events that’ll make or break summer, and you’ll have plenty to look forward to as the sun as the weather picks up!
