Summertime, and the livin’ is easy
Go easy on yourself this summertime, allow yourself to go into ‘soft focus‘ instead of being full-on performance. The work of resilience is to replenish and re-energise. Energy, not the same as resilience, is directly related; the two follow the same rides up and down. Here’s our top three tips for replenishing and re-energising this summer:
Connect with joy
Family & friends
Let your hair down
Laugh until tummy hurts and you don’t remember why you were laughing!
Boogie the night away
Sleep and space.
A good book (see our Community of Practice recommended reading list and choose according to your mood!).
Pick up a favourite old hobby that you haven’t given the time to – get the guitar out, find a way to go horse riding, lay cricket.
That’s it. Be hot, be cool, be yourself…
