Your sunburn has turned to a tan. The pool floats are popped. The thought of ice cream makes you sick. Now what?
Below, I’ve created a list of the Top 10 Things I like to do when I find myself with too much free time. And they are all reasonable (meaning they don’t require a million dollars or last minute passport).
If you ask my friends & family, this is all I ever do. But when I get bored, I start to sit & think about what I could change up in my room & before you know it, everything is out of it’s place & my room is a different color. (JK, it’s not that bad.)
Pinterest is where to start with this one. I have an entire board on Pinterest dedicated to crafts & ideas I want to try when I have the time. I’m also thinking about making a DIY section on this blog so… let me know if that’s something y’all would like!
But seriously, there are a lot of good recipes on Pinterest that may require special ingredients or time that you can’t make on a regular day when you’re just craving something sweet. Now is the time to try that homemade red, white & blue layer cake topped with sparklers.
4.) Spa Day
Who doesn’t love a massage or pedicure? If you can’t afford a professional spa day, treat yourself at home. Get some ideas here.
5.) Thrift Store Shopping
I recently found a pair of old Levi’s at a thrift store & I was able to turn them into denim shorts. You never know what you’ll find…
6.) Dollar Store Shopping
Along the same lines, I love going to go to the dollar store & finding knick knack beauty products or holiday decorations for cheap.
You don’t even need a fancy camera or designer clothes either. Plan a photoshoot with some friends & explore your town for candid spots. Late evening is a great time to take photos anyway, so it’s a perfect hot weather activity!
8.) Attend a Matinee
Afternoon showings of movies are generally cheaper than night, so stay inside & catch a show!
And then have a snack & take a nap! Kidding, but there are a lot of coloring books made for adults that are actually pretty cool. And they make great artwork to add to your newly remodeled room 😉
Okay so not everyone is as OCD as I am when it comes to having a clean space, but it can feel really good to get rid of stuff, as well as get organized for the next school year & figure out what you need. Save yourself the last minute stress & do it now.
Let me know what kinds of things you like to do when you’re bored in the comments or on social media! I hope this helps kill your summer blues…
