Summer hasn’t even officially started and it already feels like it is going by way too quickly. Here we are in June—the time to buy a beach pass, get down to the beach as much as possible, and make those summer plans.
I’m still recovering from my time in the Cayman Islands. While I love my local beach (and have already been twice this season), it just doesn’t compare to Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman. I seem to have traded stingrays for horseshoe crabs and white sand beaches for rocky shores. But at the end of the day, it is still my happy place.
Do: Last month, I started the Health Coach Training Program with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and I have already learned so much. With each weekly module that comes out, I make an effort to try something new. Last week, I used my Magic Bullet and made this healthy smoothie from Parsley Health. Next, I will be making these easy chocolate peanut butter truffles. In addition to the health coach training, I am also continuing with Fern Olivia’s Thyroid Yoga program. I can’t wait to provide updates on both of these trainings throughout the year. And, if you have any specific questions, you can always reach out to me.
Go: There are lots of little NYC day trips on the agenda this month. But, I am especially excited to be attending a wellness event with Hello Workwell on June 13th. I think networking and professional development is so important, so I plan on making more of an effort this summer to attend some of these types of events.
Read: Before I went to the Cayman Islands, I stopped at my local library to pick up a good beach read. After checking out what some of my other favorite bloggers had been reading, reading Amazon reviews of new books, and perusing the library’s stacks, I landed on Ghosted by Rosie Walsh. After only reading the inside jacket description of the book, I new this was the one to take on the trip—and it did not disappoint. I will be doing a full review of the book on the blog soon. In the meantime, I hope to read at least three more books by the end of the summer, and I even joined the new virtual American University alumni book club to help keep me on track. If you have any book recommendations for me, please leave them in the comments below.
Celebrate: Yesterday was National Cancer Survivors Day and I shared on Instagram what the day meant to me. Because I survived cancer, I have been able to do so many amazing things. I’m grateful for the community that I developed and all of the support I have received on my wellness journey. Click here, if you would like to read the full post on my Instagram page.
Try: If you have been following along on my Instagram Stories, you may have noticed that Kerbers Farm has become my new go-to brunch spot. I had always heard amazing things about this quaint little place—people actually drive all the way from the Hamptons to Huntington for their muffins, pies, and breakfast sandwiches—and I knew it was finally time to give it a try myself. And, boy, was it worth it. In just one visit, I fully understood what all the buzz was about. I’ll be sharing more about Kerbers Farm soon, but in the meantime, it encouraged me to try more local places this summer. If you’re on Long Island, which place should I try next for brunch?
What’s on your agenda this month?
