It is time to wave goodbye to the spring season. Yeah, it is sad but true. As the summer season has already hit us a few days back, it is time to make a summer activity list to make the best out of this season.
Summer Solstice, which was on 21st June, i.e 2 days ago, marked the “official” beginning of this summer season for us. This means no more rain (hopefully it doesn’t) and a long warm and bright days in our lives.
Summertime shouldn’t just get wasted by barely sitting at home. That old school technique is no more fun. Instead, these sunny days should be utilized to take out the best of fun. So here is a list of summer activities you can add in your “to do list” to enjoy the best of these sunny days.
Go on a picnic with your family/ friends
You were panning to take 1 week off or so but your strict boss has just given an ultimatum against the same? If you are going through somewhat same situation you must be feeling that all the “pre made” plans have now gone useless and you no longer can enjoy these sunny days with your loved ones.
Well, not really. It’s fine if you can not day long offs because your lunch hour is all you need.
Just pack your bags and go to the nearby grassy location with your family. Ask them to join you over during lunch hours. They can pack some food, a sitting mat, some beer and that’s it. You are all good to go.
Or even when you are on your offs or on weekends. This park picnic idea is a perfect summer activity.
Set up a barbecue
Next one in the list of summer activities you can enjoy doing in these sunny days is setting up a barbecue outside your house. Say in your backyard or outside the garage. Instead of taking outs or pizza delivery, just fire up the grill and make what you like to eat. Burgers, steaks, chicken, hot dogs, just see the recipe and bring out the chef in you.
Develop your reading skills
Being a child, reading something looked more of punishment but as you grow up and understand the importance of reading books and novel you get even more attached to it. So, if you are among those who just love reading, these sunny days are the best companion and mood setter for you to finish all those books you have been waiting to read.
Check your bookshelf and make a long list of books you are willing to finish in this summer season. You can buy more if they are not well enough. So what are you waiting for? jump start yourself now!!!
Shopping is never outdated. If you are looking to spend your day doing something light yet cherishable, shopping is one of the best summer activities for you. Just gather your gang and you are all set to go.
The Summer season comes with an abundance of offers and “Sale” tag on your favorite brands so use it judicially. Give your wardrobe a new splash of freshness and color.
If you are not yet convinced, just think about what you are going to wear these upcoming months? You do probably need some new clothes right?
Ice cream date
There is nothing which can give you a more summery vibe than ice creams. So what are you waiting for? Plan a little cozy ice cream date with your spouse. Either go outside or get a huge tub for a cozy evening. Just you, your partner and some new shoes on Netflix!! Sounds like a great plan, isn’t it?
Also, you can head to those cute mini ice cream parlor with your friends after office hours. Try those new flavors or maybe just stick to your favorite ones, its all your choice but make sure to enjoy this summer.
A Beach Party
And finally, something which is sort of the best summer activity, heading to a beach. This may seem a bit cliche but these are what sunny days are all about. Spending initial sunny days on the beach, doing nothing just laying in the sun, something which you just cannot miss. So just pack your things and family, gear up and just head to the nearest beach.
Go, enjoy, take a dip and do not forget to take SPF creams along.
If there is no beach near where you live and cannot afford to have a long trip at the current point of time, don’t worry. Just shift the venue from a beach to your local poolside. Because, in the end, it’s all about having a fun time with your family right!!! So do add these summer activities in your list.
