It is never too early to start preparations for a summer to remember.

The taste of eggnog and the smell of sprinkle cookies are still fresh on your mind. In fact, they are still lingering in the pine-scented air, wrapped in a warm blanket of Christmas carols and draped with twinkling lights. The holidays are just getting started and yet by now preparation for the new year is also well underway. It is never too early to start thinking about the promise of warmer weather and summertime adventures. Some may argue winter is actually the best time to start making plans and preparations if you expect to enjoy an epic summer to remember. Everyone wants to be prepared when the hot sun sneaks high into the sky. Therefore they are not bamboozled and left on the sidelines while friends and family members journey to memorable vacations, host the ultimate backyard cookouts, or lounge in the crystal clear blue waters of a pool with a refreshing pina colada in hand.

If your perfect summer consists of any combination of tan lines on your skin, sunglasses over your eyes, sand in between your toes, and messy-but-somehow-perfect beachy waves in your hair, then do not delay in setting the foundation for your dreams of sunshine and relaxation. Here are four manageable and straightforward ways you can begin putting a plan into action for a Summer you will surely remember:

Summer Action Plan

  • Get friends onboard. When you confirm plans with friends and loved ones it amplifies the sense of excitement. Start discussing your expectations now so you can plan accordingly. Invite people to join you who are apt to enjoy similar situations and make sure you listen to their input and advice and incorporate some of their ideas into the plan.
Diving into Summer
Jump into Summer with family and friends ready to embrace each day.
  • Start working on a base tan. Once it is swimsuit weather, you do not want to be the person covered from head to toe sitting poolside or on a sandy beach due to fear of overexposure to the sun. Having and maintaining a good base tan lets you seamlessly transition from Winter and Spring into Summer, and you will not spend your time preoccupied with worries about sunburns. Remember, however, sunscreen is ALWAYS a summertime essential.
  • Shop in the offseason. If you are looking for the perfect bathing suit, a great beach bag, an inflatable you can lounge in with your summer drink and the year’s must-read Summertime romance novel, then shopping in the offseason will almost guarantee you will get a great selection of products for more affordable prices
  • Start getting in shape now. When the customary outfit changes from comfy sweaters and boots to t-shirts and shorts, of course, you want to shed the layers with confidence in your body. Starting a diet and workout routine now is the perfect way to help you achieve your body-weight goals for the summer. Plus, it’s a fabulous New Year’s resolution!

  1. A lot of people do last-minute planning but we also plan a long time in advance. We prefer to have everything ready with zero stress, including flights, hotels and looking good to enjoy our time at the hotel, cruise or beach!

  2. Heck yeah! Thanks for the reminder that now’s the time to shop for summer items (if I can find them) and to start getting this body in shape. It’s -2 outside today, so just the thought of summer has brightened my day.

  3. When I first came across this, I was like, “Oh wow, hold on, it’s only been 4 days after Christmas!” but after reading this, I’ve changed my mind completely. It is undeniable that planning your summer vacation (much) in advance has many advantages, and thus everyone should be encouraged to do that! Thanks a lot – I’ve learned much from this.

  4. I think I am always thinking about the warmer weather. especially this week since we have not seen past 20 degrees in NYC. It’s cold. But, the future awaits and I look forward to it. Can’t wait.

  5. Oh, you are so on point with this! The Hubs and I are planning now because we have to with the size of our family to have an awesome summer. But I love these, regarding shopping the off season which is a must for us!
