The summer solstice, or the longest day of the year, is coming up this weekend. Do you have plans in place to celebrate? Though it may not have occurred to you to live it up on this day, back in ancient times, people celebrated the occasion with grand feasts and entertainment – so, if you ask us, the least you can do is find a fun activity to do! Read on for a few of our top suggestions.

Start the day with a morning yoga session.

Greet the longest day of the year with a relaxing and rejuvenating yoga class. Whether you book an early morning slot at your neighborhood yoga studio, or save a few bucks and watch a YouTube tutorial in your apartment, starting your day with strengthening movement will put you in the right state of mind for the summer solstice. Plus, it’s a great way to squeeze in exercise before the day takes you away!

Picnic at your favorite local park.

Dallas is home to countless parks that are ideal for a number of outdoor activities, including picnics. The summer solstice means that you’ll have a little more sunlight for feasting upon your favorite picnic foods, like finger sandwiches and fresh fruit. Depending on where you go, you may even find a spot along a body of water or picturesque forest.

Try a new recipe and dine al fresco.

Did you know that ancient summer solstice traditions included a few particular foods? Foods that are round like the sun, seasonal fruits and vegetables, and honey are three things found in most traditional summer solstice dishes. This year, challenge yourself to create a meal incorporating any of these foods, and then enjoy it with loved ones “al fresco,” or outdoors.
