Get your next wave of inspiration from your local museum or art exhibit. The best part is that most museums are free to enter. Museums not only offer education but they offer inspiration and insight into history and different forms of art. There is something spiritually enhancing about the silence and meditative energy in museums. It allows you to be enchanted and inspired by the simplest exhibits.

For some of us, the opportunity to be a beach bum will not return until next summer. Once the fall breeze and winter snow comes along we’ll be wishing we made the effort. A few benefits of going in the evening:

  • Watch the sunset over the vast and beautiful body of water.
  • If you go right before the sun sets chances are you will find a tranquil and less crowded area.
  • Plan a romantic beach night outing that will be a cherished memory until your next excursion.

5. Take that exercise class you promised yourself

Summer cleaning can lead to a garage sale, or apparel trade off party with your girlfriends. You can easily make remodeling your room, closest or home into a celebration, just provide the mimosas. Once the cleaning is complete, you’ll have space for the new wardrobe that says you are ready to take on the world!
