Research shows us that we get more enjoyment out of the planning and anticipation of an activity than we do the act of doing the activity. Think about an activity or trip you planned well in advance that you were eagerly anticipating - how much enjoyment did you get out of the lead up vs. the actual activity or trip?
This September make plans now for two exciting family activities to take place at different times during the month. Get your family to join in planning so that you can all look forward to them together!
Focus on your excitement and anticipation rather than focusing on any negative emotions you might feel about "summer ending".
Easy, eh? Now, go and give it a try!
