It’s finally summer, and with that comes a lot of free time. But how to efficiently use this time without staring at the walls for days?
Books are probably one of the best ways to spend you free time. You get to enjoy an amazing piece of literature, and passively your brain remembers some new words or phrases. Bonus points if you read it in your second or third language.
Whether it’s a journal, a novella, or a fictional story, let the words flow. You’ll find so many inspiration from the places around you and expand your horizons. And if you out enough effort into what you write, you might even get it published! How awesome would be that?
3. Find a new hobby
This one might sound easy, but let’s put a twist onto it. Try something totally out of your comfort zone, or something you’d never imagine doing. Whether it be painting, drawing, sewing, or photography – go and explore! Who knows what this world has to offer?
4. Take a walk
This again sounds kind of obvious, but I want you to take a few things into consideration when taking a walk. Leave you phone behind to be able to fully enjoy the surroundings. Observe the people, watch the horizon – whatever you like!
Many shelters need volunteers to help them run the place. Not only is this a good deed but it might also look great on a college application. Isn’t this a win-win situation?
6. Meet with your friends
You probably meet with them on a regular basis, but it’d be nice to put a twist on these meetings. Try going to new places, talking in another language, or playing truth or dare. It can be so much more fun than you think!
7. Visit the beach!
Or the local pool. It’s summer, and it’s time to get the tan you always wanted. You can combine this with the activities mentioned earlier in order to get the most out of your time there!
Whatever you choose to do, remember to have fun and make memories. Summer’s the time to do the things you never have time for during the school year, so don’t waste it in front of the screen!
