Life can get very hectic at times and it’s very important to unplug at times so that you can stay sane and don’t get absolutely burnt out. Constantly following the same routine for months can lead to boredom and even anxiety. As young people, we get bombarded with a lot of information and work, which can be detrimental in the long run.
There’s something very special about being dedicated to following your schedule everyday but it’s very important to look for an activity that calms your mind and something that you enjoy too, so that you don’t get caught up in the fast-paced lifestyle we live today. These activities are some things you can do to take a unplug from your crazy schedule and have some moments of peace.
Learning skateboarding can be done on your own, but it’s important you wear a helmet the first few times. If later, you feel like it really interests you, you can totally consider getting professional training and invest more time into it. Although it is a learning process and takes time, but it’s so enjoyable and a wonderful way to spend your time. Sometimes skating parks can be very crowded and it can be intimidating to go in a park full of pro skateboarders. You can try doing it on empty roads, relatively empty parking lots, or any large spaces.
SPEND A DAY AT THE BEACH
While beaches may be very crowded, you can still have some bliss at the beach. There’s a different feeling when you get to listen to the waves, dive into the cold waves and take some pictures for the gram. You can even plan a day with you friends and surf, click pictures, swim, listen to music, or maybe just talk. If you want to avoid the crowd, you can plan and go earlier in the morning or later at night and watch the sunrise or sunset. Going to the beach and spending some time there is really therapeutic.
SET UP A PICNIC
Setting up an outdoor picnic for yourself and a few of your friends is the perfect way to rewind and spend time with your friends. You can even arrange some snacks and drinks and just talk about life, watch some fun movies and maybe even play some games. This is a great way to spend time in solitude, reflect on life and really have time to introspect, plus there’s a lot of activities you can do. If it is sunny, you can shoot some pictures or make a cute video montage. You can read, write poems, appreciate nature, listen to podcasts and even finish homework.
DRESS UP & TAKE PICTURES
You can put on that outfit you’ve been waiting to wear for weeks, get some good lighting and take pictures! If you want to get some pictures for social media, you might want to find a place with nice backgrounds and natural lighting, but that is totally your personal choice and how you want your pictures taken. If you want to take it a step further, you can make some can film some TikTok videos too.
BE AN ADVENTURE SEEKER
By being an adventure seeker, you will always find yourself looking for places to go, discover new places and often following your heart. That’s a good thing because you will be seeking nature’s refuge and as a result you’ll be refreshing your mind a lot and will learn to appreciate your own company and the beautiful world around you.
