Whether you just got out of school for the summer or you've been off for a month, we all struggle with summer brain and boredom. There's only so much sitting around and watching Netflix you can do at one time. Here are some things you can do to keep your summer brain from taking over.

1. Go for a swim

It's summer for goodness sakes! Go find a community pool, lake, ocean, or a body of water cool yourself off this summer. Or if you're not into getting your hair wet this summer...

2. Catch up on your Vitamin D

You are finally emerging from the library after a tough semester and seeing the light of day and enjoying the summer weather. Go lay out in the sun and work on that tan after getting out of a BRUTAL winter.

3. Read a book

The summer is a great time to catch up on some reading. Now that you don't have the mandatory reading to do, you can catch up on whatever books you are into. Here's a list of some books you can read up on.

4. Pinterest surf

It may be for crafts or catching up the latest fashion trends, get into Pinterest and create the summer board that will keep you busy this summer.

5. Go to a baseball game

From Little League to an MLB game, enjoy America's sport. Better yet...

6. Go outside a play a sports game

If baseball's your thing, gather a team and go have fun. Soccer or volleyball, whatever you do enjoy the outdoors and the warm weather!

7. Go enjoy the outdoors

Because before you know it, it will be cold again and wish you could go outside again.

8. Bowling!

You have to have those rainy day activities in your back pocket just in case. You can go to a real alley or just bowling on the Wii (because you know we all love the Wii) but it gets you off your feet and distracted from the endless videos and TV shows that you are watching all day.

9. Putt putt golf

It's cheesy but so much fun. If you suck at golf like me, mini golf is the next best thing.

10. Go pick some fresh fruit

There are plenty of the farms open now that sell fresh fruit. Some even let you pick your own fruit like strawberries and peaches. Go check it out and go exploring!

11. Organize your room

You know it's been ages since you last cleaned your room. Spring cleaning came late this year but better late than ever!!

12. Enjoy time with your family

Whether you are back for the summer, the weekend, or about to leave for college, enjoy the time you have with your family. They love you and they miss you. Suggest barbequing some hamburgers or making smores with a firepit, find the time to talk and create memories that will last a lifetime.

13. Ice cream!!!!

You can get ice cream anytime but come on! Nothing is better than ice cream on a hot day.

14. Roadtrip with your BFFs

Make it a long weekend and go explore your state or the state next door and get even closer to your best friends! Maybe you don't have the money for a vacation getaway, you can always...

15. Be a tourist in your hometown

Go to the closest city and visit some attractions you may not have been to or revisit some of your favorite spots.

There are lots of things to do this summer. I know a lot of these things require money that we may not all have unless you have a job. Either way, take some time for yourself this summer and have fun!

It's not too hot. It's not too cold. You can go out in normal clothing without looking like a waddling penguin. You don't need to hide in the shade and stand by a fan in order to stop sweating waterfalls. Fall is perfect.

2. Apple Picking

Giphy

Don't go to the grocery store to get your apples. Go apple picking. It's the perfect experience to become one with Mother Nature. Plus there are so many kinds of apples. It's a cute time for a date, a fun pass time with friends, or just a great way to be outside.

3. Crunchy Leaves

You walk outside and there are leaves everywhere. They are all waiting for you. They are crisp and ready to go. As you walk your merry way, they crunch as if cheering you on. If you want to go for the win, gather all the leaves up into a pile and jump. That huge crunch as you land is music to your ears.

4. Beautiful Scenery

Everywhere you look everything is beautiful. There are colors of all sorts. They are bright and vibrant. Yellows, oranges, and reds that bring joy to everywhere you go. The scene is inspirational to any artist.

5. Mugs and Deliciousness

Hot chocolate to warm herbal tea, hot beverages await to be poured into your cute decorative and themed mugs. Mugs with snazzy quotes or painted with fun patterns come out to be displayed. Your hands are warm. Your stomach is content. And your heart beats with joy.

6. Clothes

Giphy

New season equals new wardrobe. Not only are there new fall lines coming out in fashion, but you can just simply wear more clothes. You can wear sweaters, hats, scarves, mittens, gloves, coats, and so much more! Your closet has never been happier.

7. Food

Apple pie, turkey, pumpkin spice, s'mores, stuffing, and the list of items in this feast go on and on. Foods that only match this season come out to be enjoyed and we must make the most of them.

8. Cozy Blankets

Cooler weather means more cozy blankets. It's time to make our sleep more luscious. Thick blankets with cute designs start to adore every sleep friendly corner from couches to windowsills. Napping no longer is a desired thought, it becomes a lifestyle.

9. Hiking

Giphy

Enjoying the great outdoors at its best calls for hiking. Whether at sunrise or sunset, the Earth is ready to show off it's beauty and it awaits for us to go see it.

10. Fire

Bonfires, campfires, and small fires at home are all encouraged in the fall. They provide warmth and comfort for all, from the solitary thinker to the family of ten.

11. Country Drives

Giphy

There is no better time for a drive through the country than in the fall. Cool breeze blows through your hair. The rolling hills are well pronounced with accented colors. The air smells of invitation to go on an adventure.

12. Daylight Savings

Giphy

Get ready to 'fall back' an hour! Daylight savings ends and we get to sleep an extra hour. We all deserve that extra hour.

13. Holidays

Giphy

Finally, fall kicks-off the holidays. It's because of the holidays that we can make it through winter but fall gives us a great warm-up round with Halloween and Thanksgiving. The family is brought closer together. Friends are appreciated. Fall has arrived.

So go out into the world because fall is here!
