Summer 2020 is upon us.  Many of us are preparing for a summer unlike any in recent memory.  These tips can help us adjust to this unusual time.

It’s okay to feel a sense of loss

Many people are coming to terms with the loss of summer traditions or anticipated events that won’t be taking place this year.  If you’re used to travelling, visiting certain attractions, having guests from far away, or hosting or attending big gatherings, it’s normal to feel a sense of sadness.

This doesn’t mean you are condemned to a miserable summer.

Seek out new opportunities with a sense of adventure.  This is a time to explore your local area.  Money spent in your community benefits your neighbours and the place you live.  Keeping a positive attitude will be better for your mental health.  Summer 2020 will be different, but there are alternative ways to make it fun.

Find new ways to build good memories

This may be a perfect time to do or try some things you’ve always wondered about.  Try a new hobby.  Learn a new skill.  Read a book you’ve wanted to read for a long time.

Treat yourself by giving yourself permission to explore new things, or revisit old favourites.  They will give you something positive to remember this year by.

Don’t feel bad for feeling sad, but try not to dwell on negative feelings for the entire summer.  Make the most of the alternatives available to you.

Some things haven’t changed for Summer 2020

Remember that ordinary summer safety tips – like wearing sunscreen and drinking fresh water regularly – still apply this year.

When you’re driving, keep a sharp eye out for people of all ages on small vehicles, like bicycles, skateboards, and roller blades.  Kids can dart out into traffic without warning.  People emerging from between parked cars are hard to see until you’re right next to them.
