7) Set Aside Time For Pop-Ups
Alongside planning for entended stays on your summer adventures, I would also strongly encourage leaving a few days open in your schedule for the occasional pop-up event. Maybe your friends get the opportunity to have a bonfire or there’s a big block party going on and you want to spend some time with everyone. These things happen, and sometimes these little moments are ones that you’ll remember for the rest of your life. Always leave a little time in summer to hop along on some last-minute plans.
8) Never Plan Strictly Around Other People
Never plan a trip or vacation that you would only have fun on if there were other people. I have planned entire trips with groups of friends before only to have myself and one or two others actually end up going, which ended up being really crippling to the mood of the trip. Sometimes you need those certain people in your friend group to really make a trip what it is. So always make sure you have some things planned for yourself even if you are tagging along on someone else’s trip just in case people have different ideas on what to do or where to go.
9) Don’t Overextend Yourself
This whole time we’ve discussed ways to ease stress and make your summer as unforgettable as possible. Often a key part of making something unforgettable is having calm spaces in between the action to really make moments comparably awesome. If you go all over the place and constantly never stop to take a break in summer, you’ll burn yourself out physically, emotionally, and financially. Summer can be a time of rest as well as unforgettable moments, make sure to have a balance and keep yourself in the good.
10) Commit The Same Attitude
As soon as summer starts to come to an end, get ready for the next one! Some may think that’s crazy, but if you want unforgettable memories, it’s best to always have an idea of what’s coming up down the line that you want to be a part of. That way, amongst all the hustle and bustle of work in the fall and winter, you can have that little slice of something to look forward to!
