So you’re lying in bed while browsing Instagram and it hits you—summer’s almost over and you’ve haven’t made any plans. Girl, same. But just because you’ve kept it on the low all summer long doesn’t mean you can’t make it the best one yet! These 5 tips are sure to get you going!
1. TRY SOMETHING NEW
It’s easy to get caught up in the monotony of adulting, but don’t fall into that trap! Whether it’s checking out that chic brunch place you’ve saved on Instagram, trying a new workout class with your vinas, or even doing something as crazy as skydiving with your girlfriends, summer is the perfect time to step out of your comfort zone and try something you’ve never done.
2. THINK POSITIVE THOUGHTS
While your mom has probably told you this countless times, thinking positive thoughts is not without merit. If you want to make a change in your life without having to do anything drastic, train yourself to look at the brightside. Instead of keeping a mental list of complaints, try recalling all the things you’re thankful for. You can completely change how you handle situations by simply changing your mindset, which will naturally extend to your overall mood and how you interact with other people.
3. GO WITH THE FLOW
Some days it seems like nothing goes right, and that’s totally OK! Learn to let go of your mistakes and gracefully accept the fact that things won’t always go the way you want them to. Once you ditch the negativity, you’ll have plenty of room in your life for more meaningful experiences.
4. BE KIND TO YOURSELF
Most of the time, it seems easier to extend kindness to other people than to be kind to yourself. This summer, allow yourself to enjoy things that make you happy. Been craving for that burger at your favorite restaurant but you’re too worried about your diet? Who cares, eat it! Feel like having a drink with your coworker after a long day at work but worried about feeling bloated? So what? You’ve earned it! Girl, TREAT. YO. SELF.
5. MAKE NEW CONNECTIONS
Sometimes, all we need is somebody who totally gets us. If you’re looking to make new friends to make memories with this summer, Hey! VINA is the perfect app to find the ultimate #girlsquad!
