Top+10+Summer+activites+to+cure+your+boredom

As we start the beginning of summer vacation the joys of no homework and late nights studying have long gone and the boredom of having zero schedules and sleeping in until the late afternoon has lost its luster. But never fear, we have curated a list to ensure your summer is jam-packed with fun, adventure, and activities to get you out of the summer slump.

#10: Clean your room
There’s a reason why this is up on the list. I’m sure like all of us in the summer the last thing you want to do is clean but having a space that is organized and made to your liking can relieve a lot of stress. I know personally when my room is a mess it halts all future projects and works so even if it can be annoying you will thank us when you can walk through your room without stepping on dirty clothes.
#9: Watching the sunset/sunshine
The idea of waking up before the sun is an unnerving plan to many during the summer but setting a day to grab some coffee, donuts and your nearest sentimental playlist to play on a hill can start your day right. Or if being an early bird isn’t your thing, grab some dinner and hike to a serene place where you can relive the events in your life.
#8:Play in the rain
Now I know you may be thinking this might be too childish but breaking out those rain boots and jumping into some muddy puddles can bring that joy and care free attitude you need for the summer.
#7: Bury a time capsule to dig up in four years
This one could pull a lot of heartstrings in your later life. Simply dig a hole in your backyard or in a park close to home and fill it with fun memories and pictures of you and your friends. Don’t forget to set a reminder to dig it back up or you might just forget who you were and all of those embarrassing moments.
#5: Adventure in your neighborhood
This one is a personal favorite. No matter how long you have been living in your hometown, there’s always an unchecked corner or untraveled road, so clear an afternoon and spend your day walking around your local era, stop in to say hi to a lost neighbor, look at the names etched into the cement or simply just appreciate the personality of your neighborhood. You won’t regret it.
#4: Plan an Impromptu- road trip
When you’re home alone during summer break you’re bound to eventually be in need of a change of scenery, so pack up your bags and fill your tank, because you’re about to embark on a road trip. You could simply drive around town or even plan out days-long travel ventures, either way, it’s a good way to pass the time and an even better way to get your driving practice in!
#3: Pick a date with a random book
If you’re ever bored on a rainy summer day consider heading into your local bookstore to pick up an easy read. Many bookstores are even implementing ‘blind book dates’ in which you pick up a book completely wrapped up and walk out of the store with a mysterious new read in hand. It’s a great way to kill time and you might even find a new favorite book.
#2: Watch old movies
Whether you choose to watch the classics or the hidden gems, old movies are a great way to submerge yourself into the culture of old Hollywood filmmaking. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of pulling up the blankets and watching the black and white feature films of past eras. This can be made even better if you watch them on a stormy summer day, either way, it’s great to appreciate classic cinema.
#1: Have a picnic at a park
This one is easy, get some friends together when the weather’s nice and make a plan to head to your favorite park for some early lunch. You could make the food yourself but I personally prefer to head to a local store and pick up my pre-made favorites. It’s a great way to spend time with friends while simultanisinly getting to appreciate the weather while it is still warm.
