One of the things that people have been doing through the ages on the Summer Solstice, is waking up at dawn to greet the sunrise. Whether you are an early riser or not, if the sky is clear, make yourself a hot cup of Heath & Heather, find a high spot to settle yourself and watch the sun go up.
As a time of inner-reflection, use this day to make a list of all the things you’d like to do over the summer. Whether it’s exercising more, or eating healthier, you could even make a list of all the things you wanted to do but never had the chance or time for. Now is the perfect time!
There’s nothing better than going out and hand picking your own fruit & vegetables. Summer time is the peak season in the UK for berry picking, with many farms opening their doors to the public.

The Solstice is a time to get together and celebrate, so gather your friends and enjoy the evening in the daylight by feasting outside. Have a barbeque or a picnic while we have long summer days.
And finally, to end the day of solstice celebrations, witness the end of the longest day of the year by watching the sunset.
