Or why so many romances start in the summer?
It all comes down to
Relaxation, enjoyment, and endless stretches of free time create a magical environment for love to flourish.
Which is exactly why it’s so difficult to meet anyone when you’re tired, busy, and rushing to meet deadlines.
Meeting someone becomes just another box to check off. You’d like to meet someone—and you know you should be putting the effort in—but you’ve got too much going on. Chatting up a man, no matter how attractive he is, can feel more like work than fun.
Is there a way to recreate that magical summer vacation feeling, even on the dreariest winter workday?
All it takes is these two simple steps…
Step 1. Create a ‘Worry Pot’
Summer vacations are so wonderful because we give ourselves permission to forget about the cares of our everyday lives for a week or two.
We have only one goal: to enjoy ourselves.
And there’s nothing that attracts a man’s attention more than a woman who’s having fun.
We need to take a break from our worries more than once a year!
In an ideal world, we’d be able to set aside time every day to relax and forget out about our concerns. (In fact, that’s one reason why television is so popular. It shuts your mind off temporarily, giving you a break from that constant mental chatter.)
Practices like meditation and yoga can help still the mind, but you don’t need anything that formal. You can just set an intention.
When you’re about to walk out the door to go to a social event—whether it’s a date, a barbecue, or a concert—imagine taking your worries and to-do list out of your head and setting them down in a special place. Maybe it’s a vase or a bowl that you’ve left there to represent your “Worry Pot.” (Decorate it so that it will catch your eye, helping you remember to use it.) Those worries will be there waiting patiently for you until you get back.
In the meantime, go forth and be free! Take that much-needed mental vacation.
