We suggested some ideas for goals for this summer, but what about learning a few things that will make your life easier? If not easier, at least more interesting! Take this summer to learn a skill that you have always wanted to know but never taken the time to learn. Check out Youtube or Pintrest for ideas, and tutorials. Here are Faviana’s tips for 5 New Things To Learn This Summer!
Learn How To Sew
This skill will come in handy throughout your life. Learn how to mend a simple tear, save that shirt you ripped and can’t get rid of, and learn how to sew on a button. Invest in a mini sewing kit to keep with you when you travel. While you’re at it why not learn how to knit too!
Learn How To Cook
This means more than Mac&Cheese, learn how to put together an entire meal! Ask your parents for their best advice, and experiment until you figure it out. Learn how to make the full meal: protein, vegetable, and side. Once you have perfected your skills, make your family and friends a big meal to show off what you have learned! Start small, don’t be surprised if you can’t perfectly grill a steak on the first try.
Learn How to Wake Up Early
This is a skill that will hugely help you in adulthood. Practice this summer getting up early, and actually waking up refreshed. Make changes in your diet and schedule until you find out what works best for you. Start small, like just a few minutes earlier a day, and work up to the time you will need to be up when you start that job, school or internship in the fall.
Learn How To Use All The Gym Equipment
We all know there are plenty of machines at the gym that no one really seems to use or understand. Challenge yourself to learn what every single machine does in the gym, and maybe even add a few into your routine. Find out if your gym offers classes or a personal trainer to teach you about the equipment, or just find our online. This could be just what you need to jump-start your summer exercise plan!
Learn To Accept Yourself
This is the most important thing you can learn. Spend some time this summer targeting your weaknesses and improving upon them, and celebrating your strengths. Self care is a huge part of living a happy and healthy life, so take the summer to get to know yourself and find out how to live your best life. Start loving your body, and loving your mind!
