The sun is shining, the weather is perfect for the beach and you’re stuck in the office. Even though you’re not floating in a pool, you can still enjoy the summer day while at work.
Step away from your computer and step outside for a little bit of sunshine, make it an hourly goal. Eat your lunch al fresco. Go for a walk. Live on the edge. Take your conference call and meetings outside. Getting a little fresh air is the perfect break you need to help you power through the rest of your day.
Make a Summer Playlist
Who doesn’t love listening to music while you work. Switch up your playlist and add in some summer jams. Everything is better when Summertime, California Love, Margaritaville and Jamming are playing in the background.
Savor Summer Snacks
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. Throw some ice cream in the freezer at work for you and your coworkers to share. Ben and Jerry make the best summer colleagues. #chipwich #smores #guacandchips
Plan Your Weeks

Enjoy Your Evenings
Just because you’re stuck inside during the day doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the summer night. Plan to do something after work whether it’s going for a walk, BBQing, eating ice cream or meeting up with friends. Knowing you have something to do will make you feel like you didn’t let the summer day get away.
