Make the Most of Your Last Month of Summer

As the summer winds down, you might find yourself scrambling for more time. Summer always seems to fly by, not letting us accomplish as much as we’d hoped. Maybe you haven’t gotten around to reading that book or solidified lunch plans with that friend. With just a month left of summer, it’s time to take advantage of all it has to offer. Below are some ways you can celebrate the end of the sunshine season.

 

Try to make it outside once a day.

Most people can agree they feel happier when the sun is out, and they can spend time outside. This is partly to do with the serotonin (the mood-boosting hormone) you inhale while being outdoors. Instead of complaining about the heat, try to appreciate the weather you’ll likely be missing come January (especially if you live in a place with frigid winters). 

 

Be a tourist in your own town.

After living in one place for a while, you start to forget about all the things that make your town interesting. Consider taking a day to tour your city’s landmarks and attractions. Already seen them all? Take a tour of something you’re passionate about, whether it be coffee shops or hiking trails. 

 

Check out a schedule of local summer events.

Can’t come up with any activity ideas? Do an internet search for events going on in your area. Many towns host occasional movies in the park, farmers markets and concerts. These activities require little to no planning on your part, making them perfect for last-minute outings. 

 

Spend a day at the pool.

There are few things better than the instant relief of jumping in a pool on a hot summer day. They’re the quickest ways to cool down and often the most fun. Most towns have city pools you can relax at, so grab your towel and sunscreen, and kick back.

 

Host a bonfire.

On those chillier summer nights, it’s nice to sit around the fire with friends or family. Feel free to unwind while sharing summer memories and roasting marshmallows. Just don’t forget the bug spray to ensure you don’t wind up with those pesky bites.

 

Learn something new.

Summer is the perfect time to pick up a new hobby. Your schedule tends to free up during the summer months, so consider teaching yourself something new. Check out a calligraphy book from the local library, or download an app that will help you learn a new language. These activities will keep you busy while also teaching you new skills.

 

Summer can often feel too short, but with this list of potential activities, you’re sure to fill your days with activities that turn into fond memories.
