5 Ways to Improve Yourself over Summer Break

Summer break is a great time to spend some time working on different areas of your life. Improving these areas can lead to you becoming happier and can also help when you head back to college in the fall. These five ideas can be incorporated easily into your summer.

5 Ways to Improve Yourself this Summer

  • Volunteer – Volunteering is a great way to improve yourself and help others. Find something close to your apartment that interests you, whether it be working at an animal shelter or helping to fold clothes for a thrift store. Often when you are helping others you start to feel better about who you are and how you are contributing to your community.
  • Exercise – Exercise can help your focus, improve moods, and make you feel better about yourself. If you are not a regular exerciser it is a good idea to start slow. Walk around your neighborhood for 30 minutes a day, or find a class you are interested in. The key is to find something you enjoy doing.
  • Organize – If you lived in an unorganized mess last school year, summer is a great time to get organized. Organize your study space, bedroom, and even your upcoming class schedule. Being organized can help reduce stress and allow you to be more productive while also giving you more free time.
  • Prioritize – For some people saying no is not easy. If you find yourself saying yes to every question asked, or every club offered, it may be time to prioritize. Summer is a great time to think about what you really want to do, start cutting back on some commitments, making time for the things that you enjoy or will benefit your career most in the long run.
  • Have Fun – Part of improving your life is having fun. Get out there and enjoy those things that make you feel happy. You could also take up a new hobby like photography, salsa classes, or paddle boarding. Make time to do things you enjoy and you will be a happier person.
