Finally, vacations are here and you can relax. You can be at home, sleep until late, hang out with your friends and go for trips. However, time goes by too quickly and before you know it, next semester is here already. *Sigh*

Some people feel as though they have to do extravagant things in order to make the most of their vacations, however, we will share with you a few things that you can do to make the most out of this summer doing simple everyday things.

1) Let’s be awake:

Sleeping sounds like a fun activity to do throughout the day, but if you make it an everyday habit, you are going to miss out on a doing a lot of things during your vacations. So how about a sleeping schedule. You’ll be able to get the amount of sleep you want and have a lot of time to do plenty of other things.

2) Get your to-do list out:

Remember how during exams you really wanted to complete reading that book, but you couldn’t? The time is now. What else are vacations for? You can do everything from discovering new music and going on long walks to watching movies and reading books. Do what you can’t do any other time of the year while you still can!

3) Be a tourist in your own town:

How well do you know your city? If I were a tourist what places would you take me to? Have you driven by a certain place time and again, thinking, ‘I really should check that out?’ Let’s face it, we live day to day viewing our surroundings with our eyes half shut. So these vacations, look at your town through the eyes of a tourist, in a fresh way. Make new memories while you discover familiar territory.

4) Learn something new:

During the school year it can be hard to concentrate on things other than academics, so use the holidays to focus on the things you truly enjoy. You have so much time and it’s super satisfying. You could join a new jazz class, take an online course on coding or get an internship to build upon your work experience. Or even better, you can intern with us!

5) Spend Time with Family:

During college days we hardly get time to spend quality time with our family. But now that you’re on a break, you have lots of time to catch up with your family. These holidays give you the perfect opportunity to make memories that could last a lifetime. Plan picnics, go for family dinners, watch movies or even travel to a different country. The time is yours, make the most of it.

6) Explore:

The world is a book, and those who do not travel, read only a page.
-Saint Augustine

What better way to spend time with your family, friends or just yourself than travel. Travelling is an education in disguise. The more places you are able to visit, the more knowledge you acquire, about the world. No matter where you go, there is a learning experience waiting for you. Stretching our minds through travel is a wonderful thing.

Now you know how to make the most of your vacations and enjoy them, so you can recharge and refocus for the next semester with fresh, new energy!
