How to Have the Best August Ever

We are coming off of difficult times but there is hope in our future. I have decided to have just the best August ever this month, and I know our issue full of bright ideas will help me along. Here are my lucky 13 tips for having a great month!

  1. Wear a smile – our front cover kid will bring sunshine to your day.
  2. Set off some fireworks in your backyard to celebrate the Civic Holiday weekend.
  3. Drink yummy Nutella hot chocolate around a campfire – find the recipe link on our Events page.
  4. Pick up a summer read from London Public Libraries – my favourite beach books are carefree and easy to read, maybe even a little steamy!
  5. Learn about Lyme disease before you hit the trails for a healthy hike in the fresh air (p.7).   
  6. Get your kids back together with friends safely (it’s about time!) with tips on page Lay in a hammock. Then don’t worry about looking graceful getting back out. They don’t call it the lazy days of summer for nothing!
  7. Find out how to come back bigger and stronger than before the pandemic with inspirational Chick Boss, Rebecca (p.22).
  8. Challenge the kids to a video game – find suggestions for great ones from our favourite 10 year olds on page 11. Good luck!
  9. Add lavender oil to a bath and relax (you can thank Meaghan Terzis from page 9 later!)
  10. Devour juicy peaches, pears and plums which are all in season this month. It’s always great when something healthy is as sweet as candy!
  11. It’s too hot to turn the oven on this month so don’t cook tonight! Find easy and delicious no-cook options on page 20.
  12. Make back to school shopping easier on yourself by doing all you can online – we’ve all become pros at that during the pandemic!

I hope you join me in making this August your greatest ever! I wish you health and happiness, rest and relaxation, lazy days and crazy memories, and most importantly safety and well-being. Enjoy!
