How’s your summer going? Need some mojo to make it more of the good stuff and less of a wash? How about earning some credit?  Feeling good the sweaty, natural way? Staying connected to friends, family, your sense of self or your learning goals? We have ideas for you!

1. Let’s start with credit. Too much downtime not your thing? Here are 4 low key, healthy, maybe already happening, ways to earn and churn credits this summer :

2. Want a guaranteed way to feel good this summer? Volunteer. Yep. That’s the surefire way to realize how much your skills can impact others for the better. Plus…how many things can we say are truly beneficial to all? Volunteering and community service TRULY benefit everyone. Especially for you.  Giving back is easily one of the best ways to feel good. And you can even earn credit for doing it.

3. How do we recommend staying true to you, your learning, or reconnecting with those you love? Make the easiest to do list ever.  Include: sleep, naps, and more sleep. Resting is vital to good health and the year ahead. Carve out time in your day for family and friends. Get outside — depending on monsoons — and breathe some fresh air, view the stars, grab that exercise for the endurance and endorphins to slay the day.
