I know it’s been summer for a while now but since I was working until recently, summer break has really just started now for me. Summer break meaning long and hot days with pretty much zero responsibilities - unless you think having fun is a responsibility. With this kind of freedom though, comes boredom. Most of us are not used to having so much free time in our hands so when the time comes, we just sit there and watch TV. This, in my opinion, is not the best way to spend my summer. So here are some things to do if you find you get bored because yes, there is such thing is too much free time.
Start a blog - That’s what I did one afternoon when I was bored and a two years later here I am, still blogging and loving it even more every day!
Videos - Going along the same lines as starting a blog, you could star a YouTube chanel. If you like to go on adventures or you think you live in an interesting place, bring your camera or your phone wherever you are and film your life away! You don’t need to make your videos public if you don’t want to but you can share them with your friends and family, and you’ll love watching them when you’re older!
Study- I know it doesn’t sound like the best plan but if there is a certain topic you’re really interested in, there is no harm in doing some reading on it even if you’re not gonna study it at school! Learning about things you genuinely like can be fun! Alternatively, you could also start learning a language.
Travel - I know travelling can be expensive but there is no need to go to exotic places like Bali, you could visit a city near you or an interesting town in your country. And keep your eye open for last minute flights, you can get very cheap deals. Also, avoid beach destinations such as Spain because the demand is rather high and so flights will be crazy expensive! Flights to colder countries like Norway or Germany are quite cheap in summer.
Chill with your friends - As they say, it’s not about what you do but who you do it with. If you're bored, call your friends and get out of the house. Even if you just go to the park and chill you’re bound to have a good laugh if you’re with your friends!
