5 Ways To Have Fun In The Sun

5 Ways To Have Fun In The Sun

"it's the most wonderful time of the year."

River and Sky Ramirez

1. Go to the beach.

You don’t have to love the water in order to enjoy the beach. Sometimes just lying there on a warm towel and the white sand makes all the problems in the world fade away. Try to make a beach trip with your besties, or even yourself! Enjoy the boardwalk and eat some fries and funnel cake in that cute bathing suit. Enjoy yourself because life is a beach, and you’re just playing in the sand.

2. Eat some ice cream.

Ice Cream on a hot day is probably the best thing in the world. Go to your local ice cream spot and treat yourself to the flavors they have to offer. Sprinkles? Yes. In a sugar cone? YES, YES, YES. BRB going to UDairy for a single scoop of some All Nighter.

3. Turn off your phone for one whole day.

Turn of your phone for one day and explore the world around you. I promise you it’s a game changer. You will live and it will be okay to not be aimlessly scrolling through Instagram. Take a walk, read a book, or even color. Give your mind some much needed rest.

4. Try a new workout.

The summer is a perfect time to get try out those new workouts you keep liking on Instagram and then never look at again. Find a new workout hobby like Yoga and give it a try. Who knows you could be loving it by the end of the summer, or not. But at least you tried something new.

5. Wear some sunscreen (please).

As much fun is it to sit in the sun for hours to get that perfect tan, it’s so important to wear sunscreen. Your skin will thank you and so will your doctor. It takes 30 seconds to put some on, and it saves you from burning and looking like a lobster.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
