Summer Fun…what’s your plan?

What’s your plan this summer? There are so many options of things to do in the summer from hiking and biking to festivals and beach days. As Canadians who are inside so much of the winter months hibernating, summer is the time to get outside and take in the fresh air, warm nights, beautiful flowers and long sunny days.

I challenge you to do something you have never done, take in a festival, pick strawberries and freeze them for winter, go tubing with your kids, jump on a  trampoline or skinny dip! The options are endless.

This summer for me has already been amazing. Awesome weekends at the cottage with friends and family. Time spent hiking, biking, paddle boarding and my favorite…bare feet!  The best part is, it’s only just begun. We all know how quick it flies by so say yes, to every opportunity that comes your way to be active and have fun.

HMC will be taking a break over the next 6 weeks as I take some time off to travel and celebrate my fathers 80th birthday with a big family reunion. We will be using this time to prepare for the HMC golf classic (Sept. 2) and Dragon Boat Festival (Sept. 11,12,13) Don’t worry we are not going away just offering some basic events and cutting our emails back.Our monthly life lesson, yoga and block therapy, plus some hooky days and bike rides will be offered, so we have you covered to get out and engage.

I love what I do, I love how I feel and sharing the 5 pillars of happiness with you everyday has made a positive difference in my life. Thank you to all of the Happy Monkeys out there, even on the tough days, you bring a smile to my face.

Happy Summer!
