S.U.N.: Lisa’s Three Keys to a Happy Summer

Episode 173

How can families make the most of their summer? Dr. Lisa says it’s all about the S.U.N.: “S” for sleep, “U” for unplugging, and “N” for nature. Dr. Lisa and Reena explore why it’s essential to find time during the summer months to rest, disconnect, and spend time outdoors. They offer practical tips for family digital detoxes. Their conversation unpacks the research on the psychological benefits of being around nature and how summer offers the perfect opportunity to embrace it all. Dr. Lisa also explains the importance of scheduling, planning, and maintaining routines to help carry these habits into the fall.
