Last week I had a ‘stay-liday’.
As in, the UK version of the ‘stay-cation’.
As in, I stayed at home and did sweet nothing all week.
Actually, I did loads, but I didn’t do a single jot of work.
And it was wonderful.
I drank coke floats in beer gardens…
I listened to live music…
I danced in bare feet…
I hung out in my favourite part of London and I hung out with some of my favourite people…
Aaaaaand, I took advantage of the break from my work life to do some serious, hardcore dreaming.
Summer breaks give us the perfect opportunity to pause and take stock of our lives.
The heat and the sun and the clear blue skies create the perfect conditions for us to unleash our imaginations and conjure up visions for our future.
But when we’ve had months of work, work, work, it can be hard to unwind.
And with our permanent access to the internet, it can be oh so hard to unhook.
With this in mind, I created the template below, to help you make your summer a summer of dreams.
