What will you do with extra daylight this summer?
1 – Have a Picnic Outside
There’s no better way to enjoy extra sunlight than to get outside and be in the sun. One of my favorite ways to enjoy the outdoors is to have a picnic. We use a foldup waterproof blanket, and bring some easy sandwiches, cheese and crackers, and add a bottle of wine for good measure.
2 – Explain Daylight Saving Time to a Friend
I had no idea that Daylight Saving Time is a singular word. It’s actually called Daylight Saving Time and not Daylight Savings Time. You could also share that Daylight Saving Time was not started for agricultural and farming reasons and was actually introduced during World War I to help cut electricity usage in the evenings. I’m sure that your friends will love to hear interesting tidbits about why they’re losing an hour of sleep this weekend, but gaining more daylight each day.
3 – Go see a baseball game!
Opening day is less than a month away, but spring training is in full swing! I won’t tell you what team to cheer for (Although I do have a strong preference!) but baseball is a great way to bring in warmer weather using that extra daylight at the end of the day.
4 – Walk Around Downtown
Whether you live in the big city or a small town, that extra daylight this summer is a great opportunity to enjoy your local community. Maybe you can find an art show, a nice outdoor patio, or even a farmer’s market to enjoy this summer.
5 – Plan a Vacation
One of the best ways you can enjoy your extra sunlight is by planning a vacation! Dreaming the afternoon away is so much fun, so you do the dreaming, and I’ll do the planning. Give me a call or schedule online and let’s talk about where you could go to enjoy the sun!
