We are currently finishing up our little backyard, and my goal was to create a little oasis that I could escape to. We've got a bit of it done and I have absolutely loved sneaking back here for a quick read under the umbrella and feeling the relaxing breeze. I grab a DASANI® Sparkling drink, and kick back for a well-deserved break. Here's some tips on how to get ready for some 'me time'.

Set the phone on silent
No one needs to contact you every moment of the day. This is something I'm starting to adopt, as I'm not a huge fan of being accessible all the day. I make sure to put my phone on the 'Do Not Disturb' setting so I can really get the most out of my relaxing time. It's ok to unplug every once in a while!

Grab a nice cold beverage 
Nothing is more satisfying than a cold bubbly drink during the summertime! I picked up some different flavors of DASANI® Sparkling waters at my local Walmart in: Black Cherry, Lime, Berry, and Lemon. It's a great trade-off for my usual soda, as it's a healthier flavored beverage option. I put them in an ice bucket to keep them cool, and enjoy sipping from the sleek cans because they make me feel so fancy ;) 

Create your own oasis 
With the weather being absolutely divine, I can't help but want to be outside. Ryan (husband) and Evan (brother) have been total saints in making my backyard dream come true. They've been working tirelessly to help me lay down some new patio stones and get the backyard whipped into shape to serve as a party zone and backyard escape. You need a place to call your own, somewhere to escape to! 

Kick back and enjoy a read
There are so many times that I've thought "wow, I really want to read that book" or "I'd like to actually look at a magazine from cover to cover". This is my go-to time to do it! Sitting in a comfy chair, kicking back with a DASANI® Sparkling drink, and with a stack of magazines; I'm in heaven! Reading helps to relax and educate your mind, give yourself that mental break! 

What are your tips for creating some 'me time'? What would be your go-to DASANI® Sparkling flavor?
