happy summer soul-stice

Updated: Jun 21, 2023

Hi, I'm so happy you're here. Thanks for coming by to check out the first post on Saltair Coastal Co! What better day to start this new adventure than on summer solstice and to express my appreciation and gratitude for stopping by, I'm sharing a few things you can do to help celebrate the longest day of the year that are good for your soul.

(ps. there's even a little digital gift below)

  1. Sunrise or sunset ritual: Watch the sunrise or sunset on the day of the solstice, and take a moment to reflect on the changing seasons and the abundance of sunlight. Here, in Saltair, BC, the sun wont set until 9:26pm!

  2. Take lunch or dinner outside: Gather your friends and family for a festive picnic in a park or by the beach. Enjoy summer-inspired foods and drinks while soaking up the sun's warmth.

  3. Bonfire gathering: Organize a bonfire gathering with loved ones. Share stories, roast marshmallows, and enjoy the magical ambiance of the fire as you celebrate the longest day of the year.

  4. Nature hike: Explore a scenic trail or natural area, immersing yourself in the beauty of nature. Take in the vibrant colors, listen to the sounds of wildlife, and appreciate the energy of the summer season. No time for a hike? Take a quick walk around the block and be sure to say "hi" to those you pass by!

  5. Beach day getaway: Plan a day trip to the nearest beach or lake. Pack your favorite beach essentials, such as towels, sunscreen, and beach games. Enjoy the refreshing water, soak up the sun, and embrace the coastal vibes of the summer solstice.

  6. Outdoor yoga or meditation: Find a peaceful spot in your backyard or local park and engage in a yoga or meditation session. Connect with your inner self, embracing the solstice's energy and renewing your intentions for the season ahead. Don't have that much time? Take a break from work, step outside, and listen to a guided meditation. I personally love the National Park Collection on Headspace.

  7. Create a summer playlist: Curate a playlist of upbeat and summery songs that capture the essence of the season. Play it throughout the day to set a festive and joyful mood. No time? I go you - Check out my Summer SOULstice playlist I made especially for you! 21 perfectly summer themed songs to get your mood sunny.

  8. Make sun-inspired crafts: Engage in creative activities like making sun catchers, painting sun-themed artwork, or crafting summer wreaths using natural materials.

  9. Plant a garden or tend to existing plants: Embrace the fertility and growth associated with the summer season by planting new flowers, herbs, or vegetables in your garden. Alternatively, spend time caring for and nurturing your existing plants. Talk to them! They love that :)

  10. Practice gratitude: Take a moment to express gratitude for the abundance and beauty that surrounds you during the summer solstice. Reflect on the blessings in your life and set positive intentions for the season ahead.

This is just the beginning of something super fun. I hope you come back to see what's next for Saltair Coastal Co.

see ya,
