Summer is a time we all look forward too but upon its arrival, we are often overwhelmed with the amount of time we have on our hands. It is unbelievably easy to spend a month wasting time watching TV and lying around the house. However later on we end up with little to no time and a huge workload. So, if you want to know how to  spend your summer time productively while also enjoying your time, you have come to the right place. I hope you can get some useful ideas on what to do to get rid of the inevitable boredom.

Reading a book


Reading can help with a vast multitude of things including better writing skills, increasing vocabulary , memory improvement , stress reduction and it can also affect empathy, social perception and emotional intelligence.

We gain a deeper understanding of texts and increase reading comprehension. Its a great way to have fun while doing something productive. Some recommendations of books that i believe everyone should give a read are Kafka on the shore by Murakami,  the picture of dorian grey by Oscar Wilde. the book thief by Markus Zusak and the perks of being a wallflower by Stephen Chboski. 

Learn a New Language

Apps like duolingo are great for learning a new language while simultaneously having a fun time.
