“I know exactly what you did last summer!” – Well, I’m just kidding! The pandemic effectively kept us all indoors, and we were unable to enjoy the Summer of 2020 all that much! This year, however, is shaping up to be more fun than the last. But with some pandemic restrictions still in place and caution still advised, you must be wondering what to do with yourself!
Summertime is definitely that time during the year when many of us have a little freedom to go exploring new adventures and indulge in pursuing a passion. Best of all, this summer, no masks are required in many places to show off the awesome work your dentist did to brighten your smile!
We decided to come up with a handful of outside-the-box things to do, both near and far, you may not have thought of.
Explore Other Cultures by Volunteering
Why waste your summer vacation doing nothing when you can visit some of the most beautiful countries in the world and immerse yourself in their culture?
Volunteering will undoubtedly be a humble experience, as you will be able to feel the love of the community you’re supporting while assisting its children and adults in learning, growing, and succeeding. Making a difference in the world is a worthwhile way to spend time. And you’ll experience cultural enrichment while doing it!
Discover The Best Ice Cream in Town
One of the most delicious things about summer is a sweet treat to cool you down. If you already have a favorite ice cream place, here is a thought: try somewhere new! Make it your mission to discover the best ice cream in town! Worried about what your dentist may say about all that sugary indulgence? Go for fro-yo instead – it makes both your tummy and your dentist happy!
Host a Picnic
All you need to have a good time is good weather, good food, and good company. Plan a picnic with your friends somewhere where you can spend the day relaxing or having fun.
The best places for organizing a summer get-together are beaches, parks, and quiet areas nearby. Don’t forget to bring plenty of drinks, food, sunscreen and, of course, music!
String Lights Should be Hung
String lights aren’t just for Christmas anymore. Hanging a set on your front porch or deck will add a romantic glimmer to your outdoor space. It’s an inexpensive way to spruce up the place!
Grab a hammer, a handful of hooks or nails, and have at it. Soon you’ll be able to relax and enjoy your gorgeous patio. Just wait until it gets dark, then turn on the string lights, invite your friends, and show off your beautiful sparkles!
After the awful year we’ve been through, it is critical to take a break from the stress of pandemic thinking for the sake of your own and your family’s health. Fun – it does a body good!
