Grab your favourite pair of shades, put on your favourite pair of shorts, got outside and absorb that vitamin D
Watch the sunset
Summer sunsets are the best: Don’t take them for granted. Give your self that 30 minutes to just sit outside quietly and absorb your surroundings
Read more books
Put your phone down and pick up a book instead!! You probably have a summer reading list from school anyway hahah (read even if you don’t)
Try new styles
Set your own trends and wear whatever the heck you want! It’s time to experiment and explore to find your personal style
Walk around your house/room naked and feel the freedom
It feels amazing to not have to carry the weight of clothes. Enough said
Eat less animal products
Better for your health, and the planet
Take a long walk, go for a run, do something active!
Save gas and get a firm ass! In the spring and summer (unless it’s unbearably humid) I try to avoid public transport and go by bike instead.
Let your skin breathe and embrace your natural face
If you’re anything like me, you have a lot of sleep to catch up on from all of the sleepless school nights – sleep in!
Write down your thoughts, opinions, experiences and what you’re grateful for, it’s a great way to reflect and clear your mind
Be more observant of your surroundings, people-watch, and make a folder of everything that catches your eye on tumblr
Investing in a skateboard was one of the best things I ever did, though I pretty much only do it in summer, it’s the funnest thing ever, looks awesome, and is a perfect way to get from place to place
Wander around past midnight, go somewhere you’ve never been before, get lost and find your self in the process hehe
Make vlogs – even if you’re not going to share them, they’re going to be so funny to re- watch and are going to be a complete play back of your memories. If you don’t want to do that, just take lots and lots of pictures
Spend more $$$ on experiences than on material things
Consider your purchases before you splurge. Only spend on things that spark happiness and on things that will still matter in a year. Think about it in the long term… festival tickets or shoes? Which one will have more of a lasting effect?
Step out of your comfort zone
Socially awkward? Me too. Let’s try to fix that this summer, go talk to people! go to parties! don’t be scared to mess up! Before doing something, think; “am I going to regret not doing this?” if the answer is yes, DO IT.
Look after your skin
Just be nice to it – take your makeup off at night, don’t binge on junk food, pamper it occasionally with a face mask, and lather the shiz out of it with coconut oil
Spend time with your family
Make time for them too
Random acts of kindness
I think I’m going to write a separate post on this, but it just feels so good to do something nice for another person. Treat others how you would want to be treated.
That’s all I can think of for now…
