How will you enjoy Summer School 2020?
Find some time to enjoy your summer because those memories you create are likely to keep you going for the rest of the year. Here are a few things you may want to consider penciling in:
1. Go for a run. Or bike ride.
Obviously, depending on where you live, you may be getting more summer than you hoped for. Sorry Florida, but we don’t feel bad for you.
If you live in a slightly less intense climate, going for a run or bike ride in the summer is as good as it gets. I suggest running/biking at dusk somewhere near the water. It’s bright enough for you to still see and you’ll get a nice breeze going your way.
2. Go to beach and go often.
I for one always tell myself that I’ll make a trip out to the beach every week… Last year I didn’t go once. I know you know that going to the beach in the summer is a good idea, but you actually have to do it.
It’s one thing to promise yourself like I have and it’s another to actually force yourself to go. You’ll be thankful you did.
3. Go camping.
Sleeping overnight on the beach, I do consider camping. The forest works as well. The point is to spend as much time outdoors as you possibly can. Bring your mosquito repellent and spend a night on the ground.
Or in a sleeping bag on the ground. Just get out of your apartment and out of your comfort zone for a change. The summer allows for as much comfort as camping allows for.
4. Spend some time on a lake.
Rent a boat, some water skis or a tube and let it rip. Bring a 6-pack, some snacks and dive off the boat. If you’re into fishing then do some fishing.
The lake is an incredibly relaxing environment. The water is still. The air is fresh and quiet. It’ll remind you how humans are supposed to live.
5. Spend time with a lover outside. On the beach. In the forest. Down the block – wherever.
This could mean doing whatever, if you catch our drift. Everyone should enjoy the outdoors in the summer. Why? Because you can. Don’t be shy.
6. Have a massive barbecue.
Invite your family and friends. Invite your neighbors. Invite lots and lots of women (optional). If you don’t have a grill then buy one of those small and cheap ones.
Sure, it may take a while to cook dinner, but beer is best served cold. Barbecues are really just excuses to get together and drink during the day – let’s be honest.
7. Swim like your life depends on.
Swimming is incredibly good for your body and really, really fun. Don’t waste your time in one of those boring indoor pools.
In the summer, it’s all about being outdoors. If you have a pool, use it. If you don’t, then find one. Throw a party. Or find a rooftop in a city near you that has a pool – there are bound to be a few.
