Happy Birthdays! Celebrate with Bodylogix!
“Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.” Larry Lorenzoni
Here’s hoping this post evokes thoughts of cannon balls and water falls; decks and picnics. Summer is here and whether you’re in Canada or the US, this upcoming weekend is all about celebrating our great nations and every thing summer. In Canada, July 1st is always a proud patriotic ensuing of festivities, which coincides with the grandiose greatness of July 4th, south of the boarder. Wherever you are, whatever you’re celebrating, here’s hoping you are doing it up with great friends and a heart full of pride.
Here are five great additions to your celebration:
- A fab, nutrient dense spread of delicious food. Check out our pal Beverly’s recipes here – for a quick and easy salad or guilt-free brownies.
- A stellar guest list. Invite friends, neighbours and your favourite aunt, the more the merrier.
- Be sure to organize some classic summer fun games, like the three-legged race or a treasure hunt. Everyone loves fence ball and if you’re lucky enough to have space, set up ring toss or horse shoes.
- Serve lemonade. Or sweet tea. (No explanation required).
- Wear sun screen. We all know the benefits of getting enough vitamin D, but sometimes when the music’s pumping and the is fun flowing, we lose track of time. Nothing is worse than a sunburn, so be sun smart.
- Speaking of tunes, plan ahead and create an awesome summer playlist. Be open, include a variety of genres and artists.
- Keep healthy icy treats on hand for refreshments between volleyball games or crochet.
- Know a good joke. What do you call a fish with no eyes? – A fsh.
- Recycle! Parties can bring on extra trash. Do the planet a favour and be earth kind.
- Take a moment to count your blessings. Whether you are Canadian or American, we live in countries with clean drinking water, plenty of opportunities and freedom of speech! So be loud and be proud.
Happy all things Canada Day or Independence Day! Whether you are 150 years old or 241 – it’s time to honour how far you’ve come and that you have to look forward to!
