Goals and dreams rise with the temperatures, I’m convinced. Perhaps it’s the longer sunlight hours, the sense of vacation, the lack of being confined indoors; the list could go on! So with the beginning of summer here are some things that have helped me get the most out of summers in the past, and I hope they can help you squeeze everything out of it you can!
What is summer if not inviting friends over for some beers and a bonfire? It’s a great chance to catch up and relax with loved ones and some booze!
Whether it’s in a plastic pouch and being thrown (water balloons if you couldn’t figure it out), laying out by it, swimming, or anything else in it; water is a major staple to a good summer! Just be sure to be safe! I’ve had a few incidences with aquatic sports, but I’ll save that for another time.
If it’s not too humid, overcast days and sunny days alike are great for chillin’ outside and reading a book with some iced tea. If you have a hammock all the better! Don’t beat yourself up though if you accidentally cat nap. That’s part of the appeal!
Always. Everywhere. Life would be so hard without music. Turn it up, and sing along!
With friends! By yourself! At home! In the theater! So many options, and there’s a good line up this summer! 😀 Also, Netflix is a wonderful lover.
Travel! If you don’t have the means to travel outside of your area don’t fret! Playing tourist in your home town can be just as fun! Take the time to look at everything with fresh eyes and enjoy what’s always been around you! Cameras help add to the touristy illusion, just please…no fanny packs. (Unless you’re looking for irony. :P)
What other ways do you enjoy your summer? For me, it’s a lot about the people I surround myself with. I always have a good time with my close friends and family! Let me know! I want to hear from you, so please leave a comment below, tweet, or Facebook me! (Click the links and let’s connect! 😀 )
