Memorial Day weekend is here (technically, it begins on Saturday, May 24), so let’s take this last entry in our 50 Things to Do Before Memorial Day in the Hamptons countdown to heart and prepare for the coming summer. If we don’t do this now, we may have to wait until after Labor Day before we can breathe again!

Our countdown of things to do before Memorial Day on the East End ends with #1: Breathe

As we stand on the precipice of a long East End summer, with so many exciting events and activities ahead—not to mention a lot of hard work (for many)—it’s time to take a deep breath and prepare for what’s to come.

Sit back, relax, end enjoy a quiet moment today. Do something just for you and find that oft-mentioned “happy place.” When summer gets rolling and the madness begins taking its toll, reflect back on this peaceful reprieve, no matter how brief. Let it be your center, a stress reliever in the ever-widening seasonal gyre we call home.

We recommend relaxing on a quiet beach or nature trail, but do whatever makes you happy—even if that means holing up in the house and watching television, playing video games or sleeping with abandon. This is your moment. Take it and do what you will, because come Saturday (lines, traffic, attitudes and all), your time may no longer be your own.

Don’t come back tomorrow for 50 Things to Do Before Memorial Day in the Hamptons because summer has officially begun!
