1. Salute to another Day of Light:
Solstice is symbolic of transitioning from the short days of winter and spring, into the bright, long days of summer. As yogis, so many of our practices revolve around the sun, including, of course, Sun Salutations! The origin of “saluting the sun” is about channeling the radiant solar energy of the sun through the physical expression of gratitude for another day of this bright life.
2. Revamp Your Morning Routine:
Since Solstice is the longest day of the year, it’s a great time to take advantage of the extra sunlight to wake up early and do something that makes you feel great, whether it is meditation, yoga, or taking a cooling and invigorating bath or shower infused with peppermint essential oils.
3. Connect with Nature:
A great way to celebrate Solstice is to simply get outdoors and enjoy a little sun bath! It could be as simple as taking a walk by the water, around your neighborhood, or in your local the park—it is about making the time to connect with Mother Nature and to honor the fact that the sun is the facilitator of the natural beauty that surrounds us.
