I know it’s been a month since I last blogged, but I’ve been actually busy. Between working and napping, it’s been really tough. Lol.
Anyways, every summer I fall into the dreaded summer pattern: being bored. Once school is out, summer break seems so amazing. Yet, after a week later you’re bored out of your mind. It gets so bad that you actually want to go back to school or have some schedule. Fear not, here are some tips to fix it!
Get A Summer Job/Internship
This is a great way to challenge and engage your mind in whatever you’re working on. I have a summer job and honestly it’s great! Make sure your job is something you’re actually interested in. One day, I want to work in healthcare/medicine. My job consists with data-entry and patient outreach at a medical clinic. I really like it because I’m learning the inner-workings of the clinic. By having a summer job, you get to have a planned schedule which gives your day structure. Plus, you get to grow your resume, build on leadership & teamwork skills, and get to make $$$. It’s a win-win.
Finally Do What Your Passionate About!
If you’re not about that summer work, trust me I get it, pursue one of your interests! Throughout the year, we make all kinds of excuses about not trying out one of our interests. From too busy or not really serious about it, we all say it. Summer is the perfect time to pursue it. I’ve always liked writing and wanted to start a blog. Yet, I always pushed it off throughout my senior year of high school. This summer, I just started and love doing it! Whatever it is, just do it!
Set A Schedule!
As I get older, I realize how much I like structure and a set plan. I have always hated open-ended assignments in school. Like just tell me what to do! The summer isn’t any different. For me, having schedule allows me to look-forward for whatever is next while enjoying what I’m doing now in the moment. If you’re tired of sitting on that couch watching tv, set a schedule with your favorite things to do!
That’s it! I don’t know if this actually helped but hey!
