How to Enjoy Your Summer Holidays
Summer holidays are a special time. 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 what brings you pleasure.
Spending time at home
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.
Spend time with your friends.Visit friends and do fun things together, like roaming, chatting, visiting places such as the beach, museum. 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.
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!
Listen to upbeat music, play games and just relax around your home.Focus on chillaxing when you're not having fun doing things.
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.
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.
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.).
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.
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, lakeside retreat or cottage somewhere; it can belong to any one of your friend's families.
Staying comfortable during summer
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.
Use an air conditioner to beat the heat.Or a fan, or a swimming pool dip.
QuestionI am starting to waste my summer in my house, just wandering around playing on electronics. What should I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerSummer is meant for being outside; go for walks, make picnics, meet friends for ice cream, or plan a sleep over in a tent in the backyard. Be creative.Thanks!
QuestionI want to do something interesting but not arts and crafts. Any ideas?Maryna KolesnikovaCommunity AnswerHow about creating a website? Or holding a yard sale? Maybe you can sell some of your old clothes, books, or/and toys, etc.Thanks!
QuestionI Can't go out for a trip as there are some medical problems. What can I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerHave some fun in your house. Call friends and have a party in your home.Thanks!
QuestionWhat should I do while I'm bored at home?wikiHow ContributorCommunity Answer1) Do arts and crafts. Even if you're not so good at it, it's still fun and keeps your mind off being bored. 2) Tidy up. Sometimes when you're busy doing something fun with friends or family in the house, you don't realize how messy your house actually is. If you're bored and have nothing to do, you could tidy up a bit around the house. It helps a lot with finding this and keeping your mind off things. 3). Play! When you're bored, you just sit there, think, and sometimes you just stare at the wall. So turn on some music, get your phone, computer or laptop out and play a few games. If it gets hot turn a fan on, get some snacks and start playing!Thanks!
QuestionI love summer but I have an addiction to electronics. What can I do to balance these?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerStart off by setting goals, like turning off all your technology for an hour or two. Gradually increase that amount of time and try to find an active summer activity to keep you entertained instead of your electronics. As you spend more time outside you will find that you won't actually want to use your technology.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I earn money over the summer?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou can try to get a babysitting job or a camp counselor job over the summer to make some extra money. You can also offer to do errands/ odd jobs for people, or mow lawns if you prefer.Thanks!
QuestionI have no friends to play with near my house. What can I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou can visit friends that are not close to you or invite them over. You can also go on vacations and try out new projects to keep yourself busy, such as reading a book that you've been wanting to finish or starting/learning something new. You can also look for summer jobs to make money. Whatever you do, avoid being closed up watching a movie or on an electronic device, or else the summer will be over before you know it.Thanks!
QuestionWhat kind of job can I get during summer vacation?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerMany different jobs are available over summer vacations. Check your local classifieds, or ask friends and family if they know of any openings.Thanks!
- Have plenty of cool drinks and stay of the midday heat.
- Stay happy. It's a fun time of the year, so make the most of it and be pleasant. Make sure you stay optimistic, because it is not good or you, or people around you if you are very grumpy or moody.
- Consider earning a little money over the summer break.
- Avoid spending too much time on the internet. Surfing the internet can be a lot of fun, but it is also a classic way to ruin your social life and chances to enjoy summer. Make use of the nice weather to go outdoors more often than you usually do.
- Wear sufficient sunscreen.
