9 Ideas To Help You Plan A Meaningful Summer Vacation


There are a lot of fun things to do in the summer, but it's important that you enjoy yourself with all you can and I promise that you'll see how great it will be!

Say goodbye to the virtual world and connect with real friends.

The first thing we usually do is spending our time to play games, watch Netflix and surf the Internet. Today, almost everyone "eats and sleeps" on the Internet. Some people even put their faces on the phone screen even when they are traveling outside. Meanwhile, you absolutely can put your phone down, shut down your computer, and experience life without the Internet. Make sure you are seeing your real friends and have meaningful activities than just sticking to your tiny phone's screen

Have a picnic with family and friends.

This may sound outdated, but a picnic is still considered to be a lot of fun. Plan to prepare all the necessary food and find somewhere far away from the busy and crowded city, and you will have a truly meaningful picnic with family and friends. This will be a great time for you to look back all the things you have been through, give yourself a fresh treatment by relaxing with your beloved one.

Immerse yourself in the life of nature.

Visit some natural place this summer to see how beautiful the Earth is. Enjoying beautiful outdoor scenes is always a great suggestion for travel enthusiasts. Sleeping outdoors, under millions of stars is a great experience in liberating and refreshing yourself. And you will be connected to nature in a very ... natural way. It can be a lake, a beach, or even just a river. Hiking, cycling and mountain biking can be fun too. Almost everyone rarely walks, while this is a very good activity for your body and your cardiovascular system. Find a park or some trail and walk around, or you can just simply stroll around your neighborhood.

Let yourself feel the peaceful atmosphere that you cannot feel while you are busy studying and working

Do something you have never tried before.

When we were young, summer was a great time to experience new things. Any exploration will bring valuable experience, and why do we ignore such interesting things when we grow up? Since we are older now, we seem to be afraid of things we think that we cannot do it, and we just don't want to take a risk. There are many things to experience and you have all three months to do them. Don't be afraid and lazy! Skydive or windsurf, or take a trip to a place you've never been to ... All can bring you the most unexpected discoveries.

Gardening.

It sounds a bit funny, but this is what I usually do when it comes to summer, and there are many people who make themselves a botanical garden too. You can grow flowers, vegetables, fruits, or even herbs and spices ... and you will be surprised to find that you love life more, and your health also improves positively. It feels pretty good seeing your plants growing.

Exercise everyday.

Summer is the best time to improve body shape. People often choose to lose weight during the summer because it is time for them to rest and plan for themselves. If you start the exercise right now and keep it going until the fall, you will definitely see the results. But remember to maintain it every day

Plan a long vacation or a party.

Daily life habits can be stressful, and a vacation allows you to get rid of all those stresses. You can do whatever you like on your travels and chill out for the busy days of your next job when you get home. Another idea is to organize a small barbecue party and invite friends to have fun, which is one of the great ways to connect and stay in touch with the people you care about.

Watch the summer firework show.

This is an experience you can't miss. Referring to the summer fireworks, perhaps you should not ignore Japan with special firework festivals that attract hundreds of thousands of visitors. Fireworks parties in the sky are held in many provinces and cities nationwide such as Akita, Ibaraki, Nagaoka.

Participate in volunteer work.

It is never too late to help others. You can volunteer in places around your community. That might be just a job like dumping garbage at local parks and forests, but that's your community, so why not help to keep it safe and clean?

Summer is probably the most awaited time of the year for those who are still attending school as it is time for relaxing. Although knowing it is very precious, but while turning away, many of you will have to scream dreadfully because you might have not done anything before you could see that the summer is about to drift away. So don't want to waste your time anymore, and let's have some real fun!

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.

Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
