Unfortunately, I have been battling illness for the last month (3 doctors visits, 2 antibiotics), so my kick-off to summer has been less than smooth. The usual excitement I feel for the start of the summer season simply hasn’t been there. My sweet family has been great about trying to provide some pick-me-ups while I’m on the mend. Here are some of my favorites:
- Fresh flowers: I love having fresh flowers around the house! An arrangement on the dining room table. A small vase placed in the bathroom on a silver tray. I’ll take them anywhere! Summer lends itself to bright color palettes. The bouquet my mom brought me is so vibrant and lush,
- A bath: I love a steamy bath with any LUSH products and lit candles. I especially love soothing bath time meditations.
- Fragrance: Those that know me well know I love perfume! Spritzing some on, even on these days I’ve barely left the house goes a long way to improving my mood.
- Exercise: A little walk or a quick workout can certainly be a boost. Even when I didn’t feel up to it at the time, a walk to our neighborhood park was just what I needed.
What are your favorite pick-me-ups?
