1. Get lost in nature
There’s no better way to leave spring’s rainy blues behind than with some fresh air and sunshine, and luckily, Toronto has so much outdoor space to enjoy. Getting lost in nature at your favourite park or along a waterside trail is an instant way to find your happy place and celebrate the summer season!

2. Treat yourself to self-care
With all the stress life throws our way, everyone needs the occasional pick-me-up. But when was the last time you did something for yourself?
Taking the time for pampering – whether with an at-home spa day, by getting a massage, etc. – is the ultimate feel-good activity. Plus, since summer is generally a season of leisure, kicking it off with self-care will help you get into zen mode all season long.
3. Try something new
It’s so easy to fall into monotonous routines, but it’s also easy to break the cycle. If your life feels stuck in a never ending loop, consider using summer as an opportunity to branch out and try something new.
Learn how to play an instrument or register for that pottery class you’ve been eyeing for months. Whatever the activity, taking the leap and trying a new activity will help you find your happy place through new, unexpected avenues.
4. Indulge in a nostalgic treat
For many of us, finding our happy place means leaning on nostalgic comforts…no matter the time of year! And nothing gives us an equal dose of nostalgia and comfort like biting into the perfect CHIPS AHOY! chocolate chip cookie.
CHIPS AHOY! cookies help you find your happy place with a hit of chocolate in every bite. Indulging in this nostalgic treat will give you a feel-good moment of sweet satisfaction, reminding you of all the things that make life sweet.
With so many fun flavours to choose from – including Caramilk, Rainbow, Confetti Cake, and more – CHIPS AHOY! cookies are definitely a feel-good staple to keep in your pantry this summer.
5. Cool off with ice cream at Toronto’s Stranger Things: The Experience
Speaking of CHIPS AHOY! cookies, you’ll have a chance to sample this sweet treat at Stranger Things: The Experience – another feel-good activity to check out in Toronto season.
The fully-immersive event is a can’t-miss for Stranger Things fans, giving you a chance to lose yourself in the universe of this legendary Netflix series. From experimentation in Hawkins Lab to exploring an ‘80s-themed Mix-Tape medley of Hawkins hotspots, you’re sure to have a blast during this totally tubular, interactive experience!
During your Stranger Things adventure, be sure to stop by Scoops Ahoy ice cream parlour and cool off with a delicious frozen treat. Not only will you be greeted by an ocean of flavours, but you’ll also receive a complimentary CHIPS AHOY! sample with any purchase.
