  1. Take a vacation (or staycation). It is so important for you to take time for yourself . Take some time to do things you enjoy whether this is a vacation to the beach,  a road trip or a day of sight seeing in your own town.
  2. Eat seasonal, local foods. Many healthy fruits and vegetables are in season this month. Visit the farmer’s market to try something new!
  3. Head outside. The Pacific Northwest has many beautiful spots outside. From the water to the hiking trails, there are endless activities perfect for the nice summer weather. Take a walk, and de-stress!
  4. Unplug. Technology can be an addiction. Take a day off, power off your smartphones, tablets, computers, etc. and just enjoy the quiet time and quality time with loved ones. If you can’t completely power down, start small and take a break 1 to 2 hours before bed.
  5. Try something new. Summer is a great time to try a new sport, enjoy a new activities or pick up a hobby.
  6. Enjoy a massage. Take some time to renew your energy and reduce pain with a therapeutic massage.
