With exams over and the summer break in full swing, now is the best time to start planning on how to spend your holidays and make the most of them. While sleeping through the days and binge-watching shows through the night does sound tempting, it becomes boring after a little while and can leave you feeling lazy and low.

Here are some exciting things you can do this summer.

Volunteer at an old home

RELATED STORIES

Make voluntarily visits to old homes or orphanages. Spend some quality time with the people there by playing games or reading them story books.

Alternately, if you’re someone who’s fond of animals, you can even volunteer at an animal shelter. Such places are usually short of staff and they can always do with an extra pair of hands.

Internships

Internships during the summer break offer many advantages. Not only do you learn new skills, but you also get work experience which will help you when you start looking for jobs.

Travel

Travel to some new place, meet new people and learn a new culture or explore your own city with your friends. Take a lot of pictures and Enjoy! Here are the places you can visit this summer that are not very popular.

Expand your knowledge

Take advantage of your free time and expand your knowledge. Make a list of books you always wanted to read or find the best sellers or you can ask your friends and family for the books that are worth reading.

Take Courses

Learn cooking, baking and surprise your family with a yummy cake or you can go for some tech courses. Master photoshop this summer and get your pictures perfectly edited.

Plant a garden

Decide what you would like to grow, flowers or vegetables, and google how to plant and care. Keep your garden watered and weeds out of your garden. If you don’t have a lot of space at home, you can plan in pots but make sure they get enough sunlight.
