The pandemic has had a huge impact on mental health. From financial and employment concerns to fear of infection and isolation, there is so much stress and anxiety Covid-19 has been responsible for. Simply put: it has not been easy. Although Canada isn’t as it was pre-pandemic, this summer does feel much better than last year. As the majority of the population gets vaccinated and restrictions are gradually lifting, we’re getting some normalcy back in our lives. With that said, summer for most of us looks a little different than it maybe once did: rather than travelling the globe, we’re sticking to our own country and, in a lot of cases, our own province and region; we’ve gone from booking hotels and resorts to renting cabins and RVs; we’re camping, hiking, cycling, and exploring our own backyards. Perhaps one of the most exciting thing about this summer is the reunion of families. People are able to break away from video chats and see their loved ones in real life, hugging them for the first time in months, or in some cases, over a year.
We’re always sharing photos our customers and followers share on social media, but we don’t often share photos from our side, so we wanted to take a moment to do just that! Here are a few photos from the Posterjack team, showcasing what our summer is looking like so far. Even though this summer isn’t necessarily what we would have imagined it to be, it’s important we try to make the most of it and, of course, capture those moments in photos. We would love to see your summer too! Be sure to tag us on Instagram or Facebook so we can check them out.

“Here are a few photos from my recent trip to Quebec City! The weather was lovely and the city was buzzing with tourists … perfect for strolling around and enjoying the view of Saint Laurent River and the majestic Chateau Frontenac!” Charissa, Posterjack Graphic Designer 👇
“I was finally able to visit my son, daughter-in-law, and three-year-old granddaughter after 17 very long months of nothing but phone calls and video chats. We’re in BC, they’re in Alberta, so travel restrictions kept us apart. Our nine days with them went by quickly and it was incredibly hard to say goodbye, but it was so, so good to finally get to hold them in my arms and spend time with them.” Rhonda, Posterjack Social Media Manager & Content Creator 👇
