Summer Self Care Ideas for Warm Weather Days

Summer Self Care Ideas Printable Cards

Our spring self care ideas deck was a hit, so I’ve followed it up with a second set: summer self care ideas printable card deck! I intend to do the same for the other seasons of the year, but this set of ideas is centered on all the wonderful opportunities that a warm summer day (or night!) can offer. Scroll down for the list of ideas that are included on these cards. You can print and laminate, or simply print to enjoy. For a creative twist, print them on the back of scrapbook paper so that you’ll have a double sided deck to work with!

In case you don’t want to print out this card deck, here are the 24 summer self-care ideas that are contained in the printables:

  1. Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water throughout the day, especially in the heat.
  2. Sun Protection: Apply sunscreen regularly and wear sunglasses and hats to protect yourself from harmful UV rays.
  3. Cooling Treats: Enjoy refreshing treats like ice cream, popsicles, or chilled fruit on hot days.
  4. Watch the Sunset: Take advantage of the longer days and find a great sunset spot to sit, watch, and enjoy.
  5. Summer Reading: Dive into a good book while lounging in the shade or by the pool.
  6. Stay Cool Indoors: Use fans, air conditioning, or cool showers to beat the summer heat.
  7. Summer Fruits: Enjoy seasonal produce by making a fruit salad with watermelon, berries, and peaches.
  8. Outdoor Yoga: Practice yoga or meditation in nature to relax and rejuvenate.
