Of course, summer is the time for relaxing from all the stresses studying year has caused. But spending two month lying on a sofa in front of a TV or computer is not a smart option. Every minute of our life is precious and cannot be just wasted away. Summer provides so many opportunities to spend your time in an interesting and productive way, it's the ideal chance to become a better version of yourself and grow as an individual. So forget about all the stresses, focus on yourself, your wishes, physical health, and well-being and create a plan. Here are some goals you can definitely set and achieve this summer in order to return back for a new studying year well-rested and full of enthusiasm.
Think About Your Health and Body
That doesn't mean you should crash yourself with diets to lose weight. Do some sports activities, like yoga for example. It will not only help you to get fit but is a best way to get relaxed and clear your mind. Start eating healthy food and drink a lot of water to make your skin healthier. Once or twice a week you can try different summer sports. Wakeboarding, water skiing, horse riding, tennis, swimming... there are so many different activities to try that can bring you a lot of wonderful moments to remember.
Fight a Fear
Yes, it's time to start fighting your childish fears. It's not an easy goal, but is totally achievable! Do something you've never tried before. For example, if you are afraid of heights you may try to gather all your courage and go skydiving! Or maybe banjo jumping? Or visit circus even if you can’t stand seeing clowns. Take yourself out of your comfort zone and finally do something unforgettable, amazing, and memorable while you are still young.
This one refers to those who hate reading. Not any TV show, nor video game can conquer with a good book. Only reading can let you dive into another world at least for a couple of hours and make you forget about all the problems you have. Just spend some time doing some research and find the good book. If you learn foreign languages, you can try to read up on a different language as an example. Believe me, an interesting novel can surely turn your boring evening into something wonderful.
Stop criticizing yourself on the way you look and panicking about the bikini season and your body. The less you pay attention to it, the less other notice your 'imperfect' parts. Enjoy the summer time instead! Focus on the things you like about yourself and your body and draw attention to those things. If you think you have a sweet smile, then smile as often as you can and stop blaming yourself on the parts of your personality you dislike. Spend every day of your summer break falling in love with yourself and you will surely become a completely new person till the beginning of the next semester.
