Instead of sitting around doing nothing or the same thing over and over again, add some spark into your life. Netflix and chill? So over rated. Whether it is with your significant other or just one of your friends these 7 activities can really pump up the fun or romance in your life and better yet they are cheap!
1) Go apple picking or visit a farmers market:
There is nothing better than spending time outdoors picking your own fruits or vegetables or grabbing local produce from a market. When the season is right, take advantage of your local and fresh produce!
2) Get a disposable camera:
Yes that is what I said! Take a day away from your smartphone, and purchase a cheap disposable camera. Whether you’re with your significant other or your bffs, this can be so much fun. Take a break from Instagram, and capture the beauty of everything around you. You can even get creative and put the pictures in a scrapbook. These pictures and memories are really what last a lifetime.
3) Go kayaking/ paddle boarding:
Warm weather is coming! Spend the weekend paddling away at your local beach or river. Most places offer cheap day rentals. Take this opportunity to go out and enjoy the beautiful scenery and relax on the river! You can even burn some calories too 😉
4) Try a new fitness class:
Always wanted to try kickboxing or crossfit but don’t wanna do it alone? Grab your partner and go! Many places around you offer discounted or even free introduction classes, but doing it with someone else can boost your confidence level and make you work harder!
5) Game night!
Take it back to your younger days for a second, and pull out the board games. Checkers, Sorry, Monopoly, Candyland, Jenga… what’s one of your old favorite games? Take it out. You’ll be surprised how many memories you bring back! You really do forget how fun it is.
6) Discover something new:
Check out your local Museum, Zoo or Aquarium. They often have discounted days or discounts for students. You will be surprised to see all the fun things they have in store for you. Near me in Boca Raton, I love to visit the Japanese Garden and the Drive through Safari. It is just something fun and interesting to do when you need a change.
Spend a day to helping others. Even if it is once a month, whether you go to a local kitchen, help the elderly, do a beach clean up or even help out at an animal shelter, you feel so much better after. Besides helping and benefiting your community this is a huge way to confidence booster to oneself.
So next time you are sitting around and you have nothing to do, and you don’t have to work or go to school, go out and try something new and different. Everyone needs some spark in their life once in awhile. I promise you you won’t regret it.
