How to Enjoy Your Summer Holidays

Summer holidays are a special time and also very important time for us to recharge and rejuvenate, to pause, to reflect and enjoy every moment in a very new self loving nourishing way.

In summer, the days seem longer, there’s no homework to tie you down and there are many possibilities before you. Enjoying your summer holidays is about making the most of them and doing exactly what brings you pleasure.

Here are few tips on how we can enjoy them and juice this wonderful season the most no matter what are our resources.

STAYING AT HOME

1.) Don’t waste time sleeping in

A few days here and there are a good way to relish the freedom of summer but don’t let it become a habit that eats into your entire break.  Map out a range of activities that motivate you to get up and make the most of each day, whether it’s reading, painting, art and craft, catching up on missed TV shows, visiting friends or whatever.

Do something intellectually challenging, like learning a new language or teaching yourself a field you know you’re never going to study at school.

Learn a new sport. Either learn it by reading about it and practicing or find a club, group of players or a coach to help you discover a new sporting talent.

2.) Spend time with your friends

Visit friends and do fun things together, like roaming, chatting, visiting places such as the beach, museums. etc.

  • Have sleepovers and backyard camping together
  • Write a book, blog or website together
  • Plan and even run a small business together, to earn some money.  A lemonade stand, car boot sale or craft items online are all achievable and fun options for raising a bit of cash together.  Set up the charity project.

 

3.) Take some afternoon sleep

A nap here and there will keep your mind fresh and keeps you out of the sun at the hottest time of day.  You might even be able to find enough energy to party all night!

4.) Listen to upbeat music, play games and just relax around your home

Focus on chillaxing when you’re not having fun doing things.

GOING OUT

1.) Hang out with your friends at favorite locales

For example, a favorite coffee shop, the local public swimming pool, a mall or have a picnic in the park.

2.) Visit the local water park

Have fun while you’re keeping your cool.  Take your friends with you.  Be really kind and take your younger siblings too.

3.) Meet new friends

Go to places where it’s safe to meet people of your own age, such as during sports, at a coffee shop or at special activities, such as computer games conventions.  Say hi to new people and see if you can make new friends.  Take your existing friends with you and all of you can make new friends together!

There are many places where you can meet new people, such as book signings, concerts, or even public events (for example, funfairs, festivals, etc.).

TRAVELLING

1.) Travel with your your family

Travel is an ideal way to pass some of the summer holidays. You can travel locally, for just a day trip, or farther afield, perhaps for a few days, a week or even a few weeks. Depending on your family’s budget, consider camping, staying in motels or visiting a resort.

Pack plenty of snacks and water for travel. You’ll need to drink more during the hotter weather.

2.) Consider traveling somewhere with friends

If you’re old enough to go away with friends and a responsible older sibling to take care of you all, this can be a fun way to enjoy time with your friends away from home. Have at least one responsible person 16 or up per every two to three of you going.  It’s recommended that you visit somewhere close so that you can come home quickly if needed.  Or, go and visit a family farm, mountain yoga retreat or cottage somewhere; it can belong to any one of your friend’s families.

STAYING COMFORTABLE DURING SUMMER

1.) Wear appropriate clothes

Summer clothing should be loose, comfortable, cool and carefree.  Don’t constrict yourself with tight and uncomfortable gear; this is the time for being as comfortable as possible.  Cotton and wick-away garments are good for keeping your cool.

Wear a hat and sunscreen when you’re out in the searing sun.

2.) Use an air conditioner to beat the heat

Or a fan, or a swimming pool dip

The most importantly, summer is the most enjoyable part of the year and we are not here forever, so plan little trips, be open to joy and adventure, don’t hesitate to treat yourself as you deserve it and we are here just once! ?
