10 Activities To Do This Summer

Woohoo It’s finally Summer.

Well, it officially started last week Wednesday with the longest day of the year.

By now, school should be out and I know most of you have been looking forward to this season for a time to relax.  Usually on summer vacations however, after the first two weeks when you’re all caught up on rest it starts to get boring.

That’s why I’m here to help you out!
If you know you’ll have a lot of free time and unsure of what to do with it, check out my list of activities you can do this summer.

P.S. – Even if you’re not free from school (summer semester) and have extra time on weekends/after work feel free to try an activity.

GET CRAFTY

Check out Pinterest for Summer DIYs that you can do in your spare time. Maybe there was a project you saw somewhere that you always wanted to do? You can make a few things to redecorate your room/apartment/office and even gift them to friends/family.

BE ACTIVE

Okay, maybe you didn’t work on that Summer body during the spring or had enough time during school. Well now you have all the time to get your body ready for the next season. Generally though you should always try to remain active for good health. Try a recreational sport, join a gym or simply walk/run in your neighborhood.

Read good books, eat well or at least well enough, be active, sleep. Start caring for oneself. Spring.  Rebirth.  Metaphor. Words.

CROCHET

During our first year in high school we had a craft class where we learnt different projects; crocheting was one of them. Boiii do I wish I paid more attention. Crochet swim wear and other products are becoming increasingly popular, and think how cool it’d be to wear your own creations.

READ

Yes yes I know, who wants to read during the summer break? A book is the last thing on anyone’s mind, but think about it you have the chance to read books which actually excite you. From mystery, romance, thriller and even self-help/inspirational books. There’s a wide variety to choose from; check out my reading list for ideas.

PAINT

I will always encourage anyone to explore their creative side, and what better time than now? The joy about painting is it can be anything and it doesn’t have to be perfect. Just express yourself!

START A BLOG

You had to know this one was coming. Document your summer activities or maybe you have a particular niche you’re interested in. Don’t let anybody tell you the blogging world is “over-saturated” because you can bring your own uniqueness to the mix. Give it a try!

EXPLORE

Whether it be your town/city/country try exploring unknown territory. Visit places you’ve never been to before, experience different restaurants and meet new people. If you had ample time to plan perhaps you decided to travel. That’s definitely a big summer activity that you can enjoy solo or with friends and family.

GO CAMPING

Depending on where you’re located camping can be a good idea. On the beach, in a park, do your research, invite some friends and get ready for an adventure. Even if it’s for a weekend, get out and have some fun.

HAVE A PICNIC

Another opportunity to get out the house. C’mon, who wants to be indoors during the summer? Just like camping you can choose anywhere to have your picnic and it’s really simple to plan. All you need is a blanket, snacks or your favorite foods/drinks, and extras (games, music, books). P.S A picnic is a good idea for a summer date as well.

HOST A PARTY

Now that all your friends have FREE time, why not host a party to catch up and reconnect? Get creative with a theme (wine night, brunch, games night) anything you want.

Batch his cocktails in advance, so you can enjoy the party. Watermelon refresher. Prep time: 5 minutes. In a blender, combine 6 cups peeled seedless watermelon (about 4½ lb, or 1 small melon), ? cup lime juice, ¼ cup mint leaves, and 1 Tbsp sugar; puree until mixture is smooth and only flecks of mint remain. Add ? cup white rum, stir to combine, and cover and refrigerate until cold. Serve with ice. (The watermelon mixture — before you add the rum — can be made up to 6 hours ahead. Refrigerate until serving.) Makes 6 cocktails. Summer's sangria. Prep time: 10 minutes, plus at least 2 hours chilling time. Combine 1 (750-ml) bottle sauvignon blanc or another dry white wine, ¼ cup St. Germain elderflower liqueur, and 1 Tbsp sugar; stir to dissolve sugar. Add 1 ripe plum (cut into thin wedges), 1 peach (scrubbed to remove fuzz and cut into thin wedges), ½ lb strawberries (hulled and halved), 6 oz raspberries, 2 (3-inch) strips lemon zest, and 2 Tbsp lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours, preferably overnight. Serve over ice. Makes 6 cocktails. Tipsy tee. Prep time: 10 minutes. Combine 3 cups lemonade, 1 cup bourbon, 1 small lemon (thinly sliced), and 1 (3-inch) piece fresh ginger (peeled and thinly sliced, about ½ cup). Stir well to blend flavors. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Add to a dispenser and top with 2 (12-oz) bottles chilled ginger ale. Makes 6 cocktails. Rock the buffet table. Grab some flat stones from your yard (or get the nice ones at a garden supply store), give them a quick cleaning, and write a menu item on each with a white paint pen. You can also use them as place cards or napkin weights on a breezy day. source
