Get Creative in the Kitchen

This is an all year round activity, but when it’s hot outside, you probably want something new and refreshing to eat. There are tons of recipes that are available online for you to recreate. You can make fruity popsicles, fruit salads with homemade vinaigrettes, or meal prep so you can have your food ready every day for that week.

Lay Out On the Beach

This is the most typical activity to do, but it’s a classic. Grab a book, prepare some snacks and pack it in a cooler, grab a boom box and your sunscreen (protect that skin please), and relax under the sun.

Go On a Road Trip

Practice Giving Yourself Proper Self Care

Everyone is so busy going to school, work, and making plans with people, that they forget to properly take care of themselves. This summer, make a plan to eat three solid meals a day and making sure you be selfish and give yourself “you time” to decompress and let your mind go into relax mode.

It’s always nice to learn something that you’ve never done or known before. Ride a bike, learn how to swim, practice a new language or simply read are just some examples of things to learn.
