The best thing to do is plan things you would like to do in the summer during the spring, and go on from that point.
We have chosen 10 summer activities to give you some ideas!
~Ten Things Do Do This Summer~
1. Vacation. Duh. This could include a trip all the way across the country, or a local day trip. Vacations are a great way to relax and create memories! Be sure to keep your eyes opened for great hotel deals. A good time to take a summer vacation is after the summer when condos and hotels are having their big post-summer deals.
2. Have a cookout. Have a cookout, picnic, or another kind of get-together. If you’re unsure where to start, there are several articles on the internet talking about just what you’re looking for!
3. Clean Out Your Garage! You may not have been persuaded by that exciting exclamation mark at the end of the tip, but don’t scroll past this. Cleaning out your garage, office, or anywhere for that matter can help relieve your stress. Don’t know what to do with all the items you don’t need?
4.Give them to charity. Goodwill, King’s Home and other charities are great places to donate to during the summer!
5.Make some money. Search for online part-time jobs, or sell your old phone on eBay. If you’re a student that has no income in the summertime, this a great thing to research!
6.Make a reading list! Make a list of what books you want to read, and prioritize from there. Make a reading goal, or join a summer reading program at your local library!
7. Don’t Forget the Farmer’s Market. This a must. VISIT YOUR LOCAL FARMER’S MARKET, buy locally grown food, and meet new people.
8. Volunteer! Candy stripes swirling around in her head at this point? There are more volunteer jobs than volunteering at the hospital. If hospital volunteer work is not for you, try volunteering at soup kitchens, local libraries, or schools. Also, see if your church has a program going where it needs volunteers. The possibilities are endless!
9. Start a Summer garden. With a little bit of work, you too could be eating your own homegrown food.
10. Start a Summer Project. This is, of course, our favorite. A summer project could be ANYTHING from learning how to sew to finally washing those nasty windows! Pick one big project and stick with it all summer. You will be amazed on what you have accomplished when autumn comes around!
