The summers where I live are absolutely beautiful. At least about once a day, I always comment to someone on how much I love summer! The weather is the perfect combination of warmth, feeling the sun on your skin with a gentle breeze to keep from over-heating. The scent of pine trees is prominent in the air mixed with the smell of wild flowers in full bloom. The weather also lends to so many summertime activities and spending time outdoors. There is always something to do like attend arts and crafts festivals, going hiking, listening to outdoor concerts, watching movies on the square, and purchasing fresh fruits and veggies at the local farmer’s markets.
This is my favorite time of year. It’s the time of year where everything slows down enough to allow one to savor each part of the summer. In order to enjoy all that summer has to offer, I have started the 7AM Club. It is my goal to become a morning person by being up and ready to start my day at 7am. My second goal in getting up early is to be productive and get the most out of the daylight hours of summer since there is so much to see and do. I started the 7AM Club this past Monday and so far it has been a rewarding experience. At the end of the day I feel fulfilled and accomplished because I started my day off right. It’s easy to focus on work all day and then by evening not want to do anything but sit on the couch and watch tv. It is nice to relax at the end of a busy day, but there is so much that is meant to be experienced, so by starting my day doing something that I enjoy, then I start the day off doing something for myself that isn’t work. This past week my friend Miriam and I have gone hiking, walked Buffalo Park, got coffee and caught up on life, and helped with an orientation expo…and all of that was before 9am and the start of the work day.
I encourage you to join us in the 7AM Club and squeeze the best out of every day! Plan your week out ahead of time or what you want to do the night before. Once you try it for a few days you will feel renewed, complete, and accomplished. 7AM Club helps me to get the most out of each day and summer like how much use I get out of my favorite pair of well-worn jeans!
Are you going to join the 7AM Club with me? What are you going to do at 7am to get the most out of your day?
