It’s finally summer, and with that comes a lot of free time. But how to efficiently use this time without staring at the walls for days?
Books are probably one of the best ways to spend you free time. You get to enjoy an amazing piece of literature, and passively your brain remembers some new words or phrases. Bonus points if you read it in your second or third language.
Whether it’s a journal, a novella, or a fictional story, let the words flow. You’ll find so many inspiration from the places around you and expand your horizons. And if you out enough effort into what you write, you might even get it published! How awesome would be that?
3. Find a new hobby
This one might sound easy, but let’s put a twist onto it. Try something totally out of your comfort zone, or something you’d never imagine doing. Whether it be painting, drawing, sewing, or photography – go and explore! Who knows what this world has to offer?
4. Take a walk
This again sounds kind of obvious, but I want you to take a few things into consideration when taking a walk. Leave you phone behind to be able to fully enjoy the surroundings. Observe the people, watch the horizon – whatever you like!
Many shelters need volunteers to help them run the place. Not only is this a good deed but it might also look great on a college application. Isn’t this a win-win situation?
6. Meet with your friends
You probably meet with them on a regular basis, but it’d be nice to put a twist on these meetings. Try going to new places, talking in another language, or playing truth or dare. It can be so much more fun than you think!
7. Visit the beach!
Or the local pool. It’s summer, and it’s time to get the tan you always wanted. You can combine this with the activities mentioned earlier in order to get the most out of your time there!
Whatever you choose to do, remember to have fun and make memories. Summer’s the time to do the things you never have time for during the school year, so don’t waste it in front of the screen!

1. Paint your Nails
2. Write a blog post
3. Read a book you have always wanted to read

5. Invite some friends over for the day, hold a massive game board session.
6. Go to the local pool
7. Eat ice-cream – when its 43 degrees there is no excuse to not eat ice-cream 😉
8. Don’t go outside
9. Go for a walk at night time
10. Yoga in the air-conditioning

Get ready to de-stress to beat anxiety!
Some say that the common trait of successful people is they usually have smaller wardrobes. Maybe because they don’t spend much time fussing about what to wear because their wardrobe keeps everything simple. Applying the same theory to your homes and lifestyles, you could de-clutter and de-stress to avoid anxiety.
If you have many things in your house that you don’t really use or need, the following are the best ways to de-clutter to de-stress and avoid anxiety:
Donate Clothes, Toys and Unwanted Household Items
Having a garage sale is too much work for the amount of money it brings in, so just donate everything you don’t need to those who are in need instead. You can also forgo the stress of planning a garage sale. You get to de-stress, avoid anxiety, and help people in need.
Post Rarely Used Electronics or More Expensive Items Online
If you want to make some extra money, post items online. Take someone with you and meet in a public place. One of the good apps out there is Varage Sale. You get rid of unwanted clutter, de-stress, avoid anxiety and earn extra money. That will definitely put you up to a good mood.
Get Down To The Basics
Go through the kitchen, bathrooms, closets, and get rid of the things that you never or rarely use. Only keep the items that you need and get rid of anything extra. Just like going back to the small wardrobe theory, do you really need 20 coffee cups or 10 bottles of lotion? By giving away some to those in need, you get to de-clutter, de-stress, avoid anxiety, get more space for other things, and help others.
Less is definitely more. Having too many decorations or pictures throughout your home will just add stress because it makes more of a process to clean all of them. Eliminate clutter to de-stress and avoid anxiety.
Build It Into Your Schedule
Take a day off from work and hire a sitter so you can get everything done. It may not be easy but in the end it will definitely be worth it. You’re setting up your life for a more de-cluttered and easier to maintain home. So, you get to de-stress and avoid anxiety even after several months to come or until you pile up more new clutter in your life.
De-stress and avoid anxiety by de-cluttering your home. It will be a lot of work but you’ll reap the rewards soon enough. You’ll have less junk, more space, less pieces to clean, your house will feel like it’s almost brand new, and you get to de-stress and avoid anxiety in the long run.
The best part of it is having less cleaning time will give you more time to spend with your family. So, you also get to be happier, which will make you healthier mentally. There will be less need to de-stress in order to avoid anxiety. Start living the simple life.
