Ways to Relax this Summer

Not every summer needs to be filled with activities or vacations. Sometimes, it’s just better to take some time for yourself and relax from the stress of your regular life. In this week’s Sunset Palms Blog, we’ve got a few ways you can relax and unwind this summer in and out of your Hollywood, FL apartment. 

Relax in a Hammock

The weather is bound to be warm, so we recommend finding a nice spot with plenty of shade to set up your hammock! In a hammock, you can enjoy the warm weather, feel the breeze, and relax your summer day away. Hammocking is best done with friends so you can lay and chat with your friends about anything and everything. Try it out today!

Take a Nap

The best place to relax is in your own home where you’re comfortable and cool! If you have some free time, do yourself a favor and take a nap. There may be other matters that you could defer your attention to, but taking a nap can be a good refresher for your exhausted body and mind. Your body doesn’t need to “catch up” on sleep, which is why we recommend napping between 10 and 20 minutes. Any more than that could cause you to feel lethargic and groggy for the rest of the day, so avoid that at all costs!

Head to the Pool 

Relaxing in the summer revolves around keeping cool and taking a break from your stressful responsibilities, so what better way to do that than by spending a day at the pool? You can lay out in the sun to get a tan or jump in the pool to cool off! Remember to dress appropriately and be safe when at the pool. Advise any children and friends you’re with to refrain from running around the pool.
