Summer Activities

Between summer jobs, sports/arts camps and lessons, academic programs, test prep classes, driver’s ed, internships, team workouts, summer school, volunteer service, travel sports, sibling care, family vacations, required summer class work, and the like, summer can sometimes feel like less of a “break” and more like “all work and no play.”

This is a gentle reminder to make some time for “play” this summer. Engage in your hobby, or explore a new interest. Go for a walk in the park, pack up a picnic, or play some lawn games. Revisit some childhood favorites, like water balloon fights, nerf wars, coloring with sidewalk chalk, making s'mores, or playing a game of flashlight tag. Spend some time outside reading or drawing – or doing nothing at all. Although it may seem counterintuitive, giving your brain some “downtime” this summer is a great way to prepare for the fall.
