Feel Liberated

filed in Inspiration

When was the last time you spent a day without your electronic devices and social networks? With eyes glued to the screen, you’re bound to miss the smaller moments left undocumented in Instagram feed. Summer is the perfect time to disconnect from your technological tendencies and reconnect with the real world.

How often does a TV show open with an appealing shot of a city from afar? Instead of taking in the scenic views via a screen, make an adventure of finding them yourself. Try a new hike, find a scenic overlook, or take the elevator to the top of a famous building. A view always feels more powerful when mixed with a summer breeze.

Some other ideas to help you feel liberated: pick up that book you’ve been meaning to start and find a lazy locale outside in the shade. Make room on your nightstand for something besides your cell. Why not wake up and grab a journal instead of your phone? It’ll take away the temptation to check your favorite apps before you even get out of bed.

Need a little inspiration? Check out our Feel Liberated Pinterest board for ideas on how to unplug this summer.

Or share your own by tagging how you’re disconnecting with #SummerResolutions on Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest or in a video.

Take Chances

Remember the first time you tried sushi? We do. That introductory piece of ginger-laden goodness was met with a very skeptical palette, but by the end of the roll, we were hooked – and well on our way to the land of sashimi. As the old adage goes, don’t knock the uni ‘til you try it! Seriously, if you haven’t given your local sushi spot a shot, get in there immediately. And that goes for (almost) everything else, too. This summer, we want to pack in as many new experiences as possible, and officially invite you to join in the fun campaign.

No one wants to waste a sunny day inside the gym. Skip the elliptical and get your workout on the trail, in the water, or even in the air. Horseback riding, canoeing, paddle boarding, and paragliding are just a few of the outdoor adventures calling our name for a beginner’s course.

Dying to hone your domestic skills? Start making your way through those Pinterest boards. Get artsy and make your own potato stamps or experiment with chalkboard paint. Channel your inner mother earth and plant a garden. Soon you’ll be able to spice up those recipe pins with homegrown herbs.

If you’ve ever been bit by the performance bug, now’s the time to practice, practice, practice. Enroll in dance classes or take up a new instrument. Most local music stores offer lessons. If you prefer life behind the camera, seek out live shows in new genres. You might just stumble upon a new favorite or the next big thing.

These are just a few suggestions to get the bocce ball rolling. We’ll be sharing more ideas on our Take Chances Pinterest board and would love to see yours, too.

Capture and tag your photos with #SummerResolutions on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook and show us how you’ve been making this summer the season of yes.
