Purrfect Summer Bliss DIY



Purrfect Summer Bliss DIY

Today I wanted to share some of my tips for Summertime bliss! To keep you relaxed, peaceful & beautiful! For a Summer to remember!

We all know that Summer is for flip flops, swimsuits, pool parties and vacation time!
But it can also be a hectic, stressful, busy time with the children out of school and routines thrown to the wind!!

It's important to take time to relax,
Savor, languish and take in every wonderful, funny, silly, sweet, summer memory that you'll want to embrace and enjoy!

You can try the ala carte version or do each of the suggestions every week!
 Enjoy these easy peasy DIY fun activities that you can do to create more bliss this summer!

*For Yourself*

-take 10-15 minutes everyday to just sit and be. Fake it if you have too. Listen to your breath, start out with some simple deep breaths at first then regular breathing. Close your eyes, imagine your day full of bliss, joy & peace.

-using the Manifestation meditation repeat the Mantra AH out loud for twenty minutes. While you do visualize what you want for this summer. Feel the sound AH coming from your root chakra or groin area and going to your third eye or between your eyebrows. Imagine what you want to manifest coming out your third eye.


-do a one day week raw food menu. Gazpacho soup, cold veggies & dip, fresh fruit platter, fruit juice ice pops, etc. Can also be a weekly menu for a wonderful detox!

-drink 10-14 8 ounces of water daily. With lemon. Will make your skin GLOW!


Draw a bath add drops of lavender oil and cup of Epson Salt with a few strips of seaweed (kelp) & relax. Put the strips of seaweed on your face and relax. Apply Scrub after the bath. Follow with a cool shower after you apply the scrub. End with a few drops of coconut oil applied to the face.

- pick or buy some fresh flowers. Summer's a time for fresh flowers in your home!


-write a letter to your inner child. About your perfect summer. Tell her that you are going to make it come true. Be detailed!

-make daily Icee drinks! Throw ice, aguave syrup, organic chocolate, vanilla coconut milk and blend away! Enjoy! You can easily substitute lemons and distilled water with aguave for Lemonade Icee, or watermelon, etc!


-write a daily simple gratitude list. Before bed or upon waking. 

-when you feel stress taking over take nice even deep breath then count to 10. If that doesn't work look at yourself in the mirror and repeat The Mantra: I'm at peace, till you feel it.

-seriously stressed? I luv scream therapy! It's a wonderful way to release frustration! Do it into a pillow, at the beach to the waves, as you jump into the pool!

-Make a list of your Summer Goals! Write, paint, sketch, draw, glue photos,  etc on a canvas or you can use blackboard paint and draw with chalk!  Put it up on the wall where u can view it often! Cross off what you accomplish!

*For your Family*

-Enjoy Exercise time! Swim laps with them, run on the beach, explore parks, evening bike rides together.

- Freeze Fruit chunks for healthy snacks 

-Put organic juices with Popsicle sticks in ice trays and freeze for wonderful cool treats!

-plan short staycations! Go for the day to a local zoo, u pick fruit farm, picnic at the lake, etc.

-Enjoy backyard fun. Create a firepit and make so-mores and tell fun stories and sing!

- create an indoor fort! Using sheets and furniture! 

-stock up on dollar store crafty supplies for rainy days! Make fun Banners, Art Journal, etc on those not so inviting wet weather days!

- Using your phone and take lots of pictures, post to Instagram and at the end of the summer go to www.blurb.com and print out your summer photos in a beautiful book format! To keep forever!

 I hope these suggestions can enhance your life and your families life! Summer is meant to be lived, loved, and enjoyed! I hope you have a wonderful Summer full of Bliss!
