A Sweet Treat for Summer
This week, let’s talk about something light, enjoyable, and sweet!
This Daily Focus pairs
some popular summertime treats with different days of the week to bring you a
perfectly curated itinerary of sweets. Sometimes, it’s nice to let loose and just
enjoy things, and when the heat really starts creeping in, sometimes you want
to have a little sugar.
Whatever this week has in store for you, think about ways to reward yourself. These may not be your favorite indulgences, and that’s okay! Substitute whatever you need, and even if you don’t follow this list exactly, hopefully you’ll be inspired to break the mold and splurge on things that make you happy. Let this Daily Focus remind you to treat yourself and enjoy the summer.
Saturday, July 2
“Otter Pops, a childhood classic. There’s something strangely perfect about corn syrup, food coloring, and ice.”
Saturday always feels like a day for exploration. There is something about the first part of the weekend that inspires childlike wonder, nostalgia, and adventure. This day of the week is ruled by Saturn, who enjoys nostalgia and encourages you to look back and reflect on your roots. This is a great day to work hard, especially on things that matter to you personally, and not just on your career or basic needs.
Sunday, July 3
“Ice cream sundaes are another throwback to youth and a great way to treat yourself before heading back into the week.”
A sundae for Sunday. This is another treat that is reminiscent of childhood. It’s got a classic feel to it, like it belongs in a 1950s diner, or like Shirley Temple might be enjoying one right next to you. The weekend is a great time to explore your inner child, and Sunday, which is ruled by the sun, is all about action and sensation. This combination of flavors perfectly complements the last day of the weekend.
Monday, July 4
“Smoothies are perfect for Monday morning, a sweet treat to beat the heat and kickstart your workweek.”
It’s a good idea to start the week with a clear head, so Monday’s sweet treat is a smoothie. Monday is ruled by the moon, which makes this a great day to look inward and focus on healing your body. As such, this is a good time to substitute ice cream with yogurt and candy with fruit. It’s a delicious way to indulge without bogging down your body and mind at the very start of the week.
Tuesday, July 5
“Fruit popsicles are a healthy alternative to ice cream that still provide a creamy, sweet, flavorful burst of deliciousness.”
Tuesday continues the fruit theme that accompanies the beginning of this workweek. Tuesday is ruled by Mars, which is all about passion. Bold flavors like strawberry, mango, and passionfruit can provide a strong, sweet rush that will match the day’s bright, active energy.
Wednesday, July 6
“Milkshakes are a great way to boost a midweek slump. They’re a real dessert you can enjoy in the middle of the day and on the go.”
You’ve made it to the middle of the week, so don’t feel bad about treating yourself to something special. Milkshakes are a popular dessert, and they’re an excellent option if you’re looking for a way to indulge and cheer yourself up. Wednesday is associated with the planet of Mercury, which can cause your mood to shift throughout the day. If you find yourself slogging through hump day, reward yourself at the end of it, whether it be with a milkshake or something else that you enjoy!
Thursday, July 7
“Horchata is perfect for a hot summer day — sweet, creamy, and spiced to perfection.”
Thursday is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of adventure and luck. This is a great day to branch out and try something new. Horchata is a Mexican beverage made with rice milk, cinnamon, and sugar. It’s blended together to create a cold, creamy drink that is perfect for a summer day. If you’ve never had the chance to try it, this is a fantastic time to expand your horizons and give it a shot.
Friday, July 8
“Rose-flavored ice cream is best when it’s blended with a bit of salt and lavender.”
Rose-flavored ice cream might sound odd, but it’s the perfect way to end the week and celebrate Friday, the day ruled by Venus. This is when love is most likely to bloom, and it’s a great day for expressing feelings, being honest, seeking out romance, and indulging. Rose ice cream represents the best of both worlds. It’s a way to celebrate the end of the week and a nod to Friday’s mystical energies.
