Welcoming Summer the Right Way

Today is the longest day of the year and the first day of summer! At Dr. Johnson Pediatrics, we talk to our patients every day about their summer activities and we have compiled a list of the best ways to celebrate summer:

1.) Switch from winter pajamas to summer pajamas–for good! To officially welcome summer, you need to put away your long johns and get on your shorts and t-shirt jammies! No more switching back and forth–embrace summer by wearing your lightweight sleepwear for good!

2.) Stay up Late! It’s the longest day of the year–ring it in by soaking up every hour!

3.) Read a Book Outside: Enjoy the beautiful weather and abundance of natural light by reading a book outside (even better if you can read in a hammock or lounge chair).

4.) Throw a Bonfire : There’s no better way to ring in summer and celebrate the longest day of the year than by inviting over your friends and cooking s’mores and hotdogs over a bonfire.

5.) Set goals for the rest of the year. Because today is the longest day of the year, it’s the perfect time to evaluate your goals for 2017, set some new ones, and begin anew!

At Dr. Johnson Pediatrics, we love celebrating summer with our patients. Whatever you do to celebrate this season, make sure you schedule an appointment with Dr. Johnson before school starts again this fall by calling 801-253-8866.
