There is something extremely refreshing about the summer season that makes us wait for it all year long. Just the thought of spending hours out in the sun, makes us forget all our stress and worries and bask in the glorious warmth of the sun. However, do we ever end up making of the summer season, drinking tall glasses of lemonade, or trying to lick out a fast-melting ice-cream cone is not the only thing to do in summer? There is so much to it, nothing fancy, just things that are incredibly simple and yet it gives so much pleasure. Doing simple things in life is fast becoming a dying art. It's time to revel in the simple pleasures of life and make the summer the one to remember.
Discover Your Hometown
We know what you are going to say, you know everything about your hometown, everything there falls in the been done category. However, it is time to discover or should we say rediscover your town and see it with new eyes. Don your tourist hat and find the places that you skipped visiting. Go the whole way and make it a serious affair, making an itinerary and ensure you visit all the places. You would be surprised how distinctive are the places and how they add a whole new aura to your place.
Plant a Garden
Planting a garden can help you find a connection to the soil and nature. While there has been much research stating how good is gardening for both our physical and mental health, how often do we indulge in it? This summer is time to give your plants some tender loving care. There is a deep sense of satisfaction in biting into a juicy piece of fruit or vegetable that grew in your backyard. It is what they call the sweet harvest of your labor.
Watching something grow can give you a deep sense of contentment. Sowing the seeds, find the blossoming of the buds while the entire garden becomes a burst of color and freshness. You can sit for hours watching the garden bloom away in all its glory. It can give you greater pleasure than scrolling down mobile any day.
Camping is food for the soul. We give our stressful lives a new reprieve when we do the simple things in life and relax among the beauty of nature. The world is packed with annoying stressors that include, frenzied activity and the regular use of electronic devices. When was the last time you enjoyed the beauty of summer and went camping doing a digital detox in the true sense of the word?
Wake up to the quietness of nature embracing you snugly while the twittering birds break you from deep slumber in a pleasant state of wakefulness. Spending hours outside chatting with your friends and family when you start getting busy with your interesting and happy chores at the camp. There is a lifetime of memories to be made at the camp. After the sun sets, you get to watch the sky filled with the brightest cars shining away merrily.
Visit a Sporting Event
Go out to watch a ball game with your families. The crowd frenzy, the music, and the adrenaline rush you get at the games are one of the most enduring summer memories to make. You can make your local teams play, this way you will cut down on the costs and enjoy the whole process. There are so many options to choose from, right from tennis, volleyball, soccer, tennis, baseball, and the works. When was the time you ventured out in your most comfortable clothes, with fries in one hand and the coldest drink in the other, and discover the art of balance again!
Discover your inner prowess to scream and cheer for your favorite team. Bond with strangers who are supporting your team and glare (in a fun way of course) at the ones who are supporting the opposite team. You will laugh, scream and forget about any stress or worry you ever had. If it gets too hot, just remember to grab some icecreams of your favorite flavors!
The one way to enjoy a season is to just ditch your gadgets and venture out to rediscover the beauty of the outside natural world! There is still so much to see!
