As summer rapidly approaches its end, many of us long for the lazy days and warm evenings that we anticipate each year. Unfortunately, this cherished season must eventually come to a close - but does our beloved summer have to be a depressing affair? The simple answer is no! There are plenty of ways to ensure a “happy ending” for summertime fun.

When summer starts winding down, the thought of shorter days and colder weather can easily dampen your mood. But why not focus on the positives? September signals renewed energy - with more daylight hours and crisp air, it’s perfect weather for outdoor activities like hiking, cycling, and camping. It’s also a great time to enjoy al fresco dining or host a BBQ in your backyard. While some hobbies have to be put on hold due to cooler temperatures, new ones can be explored during the autumn months. As much as summer may seem like it has been lost in an instant, try focusing on the beauty of nature in full bloom.

As we look back on our much-anticipated vacation days, let's not forget that some habits will be hard to break. No need to abandon leisurely siestas or switch off our preferred music playlists just yet! Instead of going into winter cold turkey - why not freeze some moments from your relaxing downtime over the last few months? Continuing to use your favorite playlist or treat yourself to something special (like a cup of hot cocoa served with fresh marshmallows) are fun and easy ways you can savor summer days all year round.

So don't think of summer's close as an all-bad thing - there’s still plenty of time left this season for us all to enjoy! Let's embrace the change in weather by appreciating what both seasons have in store for us; savour every moment this season has left and look forward with enthusiasm towards all that autumn will bring. When all is said and done these few weeks offer plenty opportunities for happy endings all around!

Will summer come again next year?

The answer to the question of “Will summer comes again next year?” is an unequivocal, hearty “Yes!” Even though we look forward to these long, sunny days every year, and miss them when they are gone, it’s not as if they disappear forever. The seasons come and go as part of a continuous cycle. As one season finishes and moves on, another will come and take its place.

So what is at play when this cycle of seasons occurs? A crucial factor is the tilt of the earth which leads to different regions receiving higher amounts of sunlight for extended periods during certain parts of the year. This tilt of the earth is then also affects temperature due to different locations being furthest from or closest to the sun. Therefore in summertime, some countries gain days that are longer than 24 hours, whereas in winter these days become much shorter when these places experience wintery darkness for an extended period.

There are many other variables that come together to make it so we can predict which season will arrive in the next calendar year - wind speeds, ocean currents and El Nino affect regional climates all over the globe leading up to summer. In fact, our ability to now observe long-term climate trends has enabled us to predict seasonal changes with greater accuracy than ever before.

Therefore as long as no large-scale environmental catastrophes occur - winter will still make way for spring and summer will return once again in 2020 - bringing with it plenty of opportunities for outdoor fun throughout its long period of warmth. Enjoy it while you can!

Was this summer a success?

The summer of 2020 is unarguably a summer unlike any other. With the global pandemic setting in, the traditional summer holidays spent travelling and meeting up with friends have been replaced by distanced drinks and cancelled plans. Despite these restrictions, it can be argued that the summer of 2020 should still be viewed as a success.

One crucial element of success to consider during this pandemic is mental health. Taking care of oneself while battling unprecedented rates of stress, anxiety, and uncertainty can lead to a feeling of accomplishment. Many people were able to discover or rediscover forms of self-care as well as make efforts to take care of their mental health in creative ways. From online yoga classes to hikes in our own backyards, creativity was key in managing how we felt this summer.

On the other hand, some amazing pieces of work were produced over this summer. People found comfort in completing projects they wouldn’t usually have the time or motivation to work on over the past few months leading up to now. For example, home renovations, hobby projects, writing books, taking classes with Hubspot or Skillshare and many more successful achievements are signs pointing towards success for this actuation filled time period!

In conclusion, although difficult and unpredictable times may have come with this season- there were still many areas that could be considered a success such as mental health and creative attainments.

What memories will we take from this summer?

Although summer sometimes feels like it has gone on forever, we have all experienced some of the most memorable moments throughout these past months. As summer winds down, it's time to reflect and recognize the memories that will stay with us for years to come. Whether you lived near the beach and spent every day soaking up the sun and staring at the ocean or had a stay-cation in your own backyard, here are a few of the special moments we can savor from this summer:

First and foremost, we'll look back on this summer with fondness due to the closure of physical spaces such as our offices and schools. We no longer had to rush out of the house each morning to attend classes or get dropped off at work. The new schedule allowed for more relaxing mornings and meals shared with our families as we worked or attended class in our homes.

We also made some unforgettable outdoor memories this summer. If you were one of the lucky ones who got away, you may have enjoyed activities such as kayaking, fishing, biking, or hiking trails that took your breath away. Some of us also decided to explore places close to home by volunteering clean-up initiatives around town or discovering local gems in nearby cities.

Finally, whether it was an unexpected Zoom call with friends during quarantine or splurging on yourself during travel restrictions (think take-out from your favorite restaurant), we took time for ourselves this summer to really appreciate what truly matters.

No matter what this summer looked like for you personally, take a moment to reflect on these memories that will soon be distant but unforgettable memories from this Summer 2020.

What lessons will we learn from this summer?

This summer has been a unique one for many of us, bringing different experiences than in summers past. Despite the challenges, there are important lessons that we can learn from this summer about resilience, appreciation and being present in the moment.

First, this summer has been a reminder that we all need to stay resilient. Many of us had to adjust our plans and find different ways to celebrate or accomplish our goals, despite the unexpected changes. Learning to be creative and flexible helped us stay resilient in the face of these unexpected changes.

Second, this summer brought an appreciation for small joys. Whether it was spending an afternoon in the park with friends or watching a movie under the stars at home, moments we did get to experience during this time reminded us of how precious each and every moment is. We will take forward a deeper appreciation for even small moments of joy.

Finally, this summer served as a reminder to truly be present in each moment we have together. As plans changed around us and opportunities became scarce, we had those priceless moments with family or friends where time seemed to slow down - showing what matters most when everything else was stripped away. We can carry that same attitude into everyday life going forward - slowing down and genuinely enjoying each moment as it comes instead of always rushing ahead.

This summer brought its own set of challenges but also offered some valuable lessons about staying resilient through adversity, appreciating moments large and small and learning to truly be present in each one.

What did this summer teach us?

This summer has been an incredibly unique experience for millions of people globally. From being quarantined at home to being able to travel again, this summer has shown us a great deal about ourselves and the world around us.

For starters, the pandemic that ensued this year has taught us about our ability to come together to fight a common enemy. Despite our different nationalities and cultures, people from all over the world pooled their resources together to find treatments, develop vaccines, and save lives. We were all able to see that our physical differences make little difference when we come together with a common cause.

At the same time, this summer also showed us how important it is to slow down and appreciate life’s simple moments. Many of us took up hobbies such as reading, painting and hiking that allowed us an escape from the daily stresses of life pre-Covid-19. We learned that self-care is just as important as taking care of others in order for society to function properly in these trying times.

Finally, this summer reaffirmed that hope never dies during hard times and it’s up to us what kind of future we can build within our grasp. The three months were spent with fear looming over many people’s heads but at the same time, it was a chance for people all around the world to do some serious soul searching and come out as better versions of themselves than before. It showed that no matter what kind of challenges are thrown our way, we are resilient enough to tackle them head on if given the right opportunity.

All in all, this summer has been full surprises and lessons in every way possible; however this period has also instilled in us a sense of strength and hope as we look into an uncertain future filled with technology’s increasing importance within our lives.

How will this summer be remembered?

There’s no doubt that this summer is going to be remembered as a summer like no other. The 2020 summer season will undoubtedly be remembered for the coronavirus pandemic and its impacts on society, leaving people around the world feeling uncertain, anxious and isolated. With people adhering to social distancing guidelines and lockdowns taking place in multiple countries, summer vacations, social gatherings and other activities which we normally look forward to were greatly limited.

In many areas around the world, the experience of quarantine has created a kind of collective kinship - a shared journey of survival through a difficult common experience. Despite its bad reputation, in some regards quarantine has enabled us to take a step back from our normal busy lives and given us an opportunity to spend quality time with family members or roommates at home. It was also a chance to get outdoors more frequently, discovering more outdoor activities like hiking, biking, beach visits or simply going for leisurely walks in the neighborhood.

This summer was also the first time in recent memory that summers were celebrated without any large crowd gatherings like music festivals or fairs. Instead of swarms of tourists milling about beaches or bustling nightlife scenes in city centers every weekend, streets have been quiet and calm for months due to restrictions on public gathering sizes.

Overall, this summer season will be remembered not just for the negative impacts caused by coronavirus pandemic - but also for how these trying times brought out resilience in humanity with stories of hope and courage showing through the darkest moments. As we look back at this summer while trying to make it through our current pandemic situation - let’s all make sure it will go down as remembered as one filled with lessons learnt and silver linings!
