Get Out of Your Summer Funk!

Get Out of Your Summer Funk! Get Out of Your Summer Funk!

We are now a week or so into August and the summer nostalgia has set in. We are used to our new summer routines – whether that be work schedules or social affairs – and now just living through the hot weather day by day. The tough thing about summer is that we all know it will come to an end eventually. It’s the time of year we all associate with long days, school break, vacation time, lazin’ by the pool, summer jobs, etc. Sultry, elusive, alluring, and nostalgic can all be used to describe this season. However; there is always that yearning for back to school, back to regular life, back to the grind that can swiftly wrap up the summer in a nice long weekend at the beginning of September. Some of us do not ever wish for this season to end but many get their fill of the hot summer days and are ready to move along.

How can you find some exciting ways to break a summer funk? It seems like the days are drawing on and unless you spend money you can’t really have a good time. So what can you and your friends do to maximize the remaining summer break?

Check Local Venues for Free Concerts, Shows or Festivals

A simple Google search with Free Concerts, the name of your town or town nearest you may turn up some unexpected events that you won’t want to miss. Not only will it cost you almost nothing, but you’ll also get some interesting experiences under your belt. If you start mentioning what you’re doing to your friends, they too can look into cool ideas that cost almost zero dollars. Be sure to bring along your HDX Hand Sanitizer from ($1.98) to prevent icky, public situations.

Have a Pool Party

Know someone with a pool? If you are lucky enough to have a friend with a pool try setting up a get together with close friends for a pool day in the sunshine. Everyone enjoys going swimming or being near water so you won’t have a problem getting people to commit to coming. If you have a few extra bucks grab some snacks and get others to bring food so that you can all have a little lunch and snacks.

Walk with a Friend to a New Place Every Day

How many of us have navigated our entire towns or cities in fine detail? There are many parks, trails, creeks, and forests that may not have been explored by you. Grab a bottle of water and some granola and go for a walk around your town. This will help you to get in shape, lose a little weight, and get to know your town a little better than you did before.

Try Geocaching

This a fun outdoor recreational activity that you can enjoy right from your smartphone. Participants use a GPS device (your phone) and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called “geocaches” at specific locations marked by coordinates all over the world. Did you read that? All over the world. Which means there are some near you right now. This is definitely worth looking into because it could even be a ton of fun for your family too!

Get to Your Local Library 

When was the last time you walked through the doors of your library? It’s interesting because libraries have sort of had to re-invent themselves to stay relevant in the technological age. They now offer much more than just books. Many libraries offer hobby classes, group meeting areas, learning opportunities in ways you haven’t thought about. Not only that, they also offer DVDs, Blue ray disks, video games, audio books, new releases and much more. It may surprise you to take a gander one summer day as we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what you find.

Find Ways to Make Extra Money

Strapped for cash or just looking for ways to pass the time? Offer up neighbourhood lawn maintenance like grass cutting or exterior painting. You could also lend out your truck for furniture moving, large appliance moves or any other handy work that someone would need a truck for. You can even be the driver so that you don’t jeopardize your vehicle in any way. Think of tasks that someone working full time would not want to bother with: dog walking, baby sitting, walking kids to and from school, lawn maintenance, house cleaning, vehicle renting, rides for elderly for groceries and things of this nature.
