Working a full-time job, finding time to enjoy the warm, bright summer weather can be a challenge. The days of sleeping in until 12 then spending the day at the beach on a random Tuesday are gone. Here are five tips for making the most out of your summer while working full-time.
1.Eat Lunch At The Park
When you find yourself eating out, find places with a deck, porch, or patio of some sort. Obviously, eating out every day isn’t really a feasible option for most of us, so look into alternative ideas as well. Pack a lunch and hit the park for your own little picnic.
2.Organize Office Sports
Whether it’s setting up an official office sports team or just messing around with your colleagues a few times a week, playing sports is a great way to get out and enjoy the weather. Have a field nearby? Try setting up some slow-pitch softball games. Or, see if you can get a basketball net for the office so you and a few co-workers can shoot some hoops at lunch.
3.Wake Up Early
Waking up early is an incredibly painful and unbearable experience for some of us, but waking up even an hour earlier has its benefits – especially in the summer. Go for a morning run, putter around in the garden, or watch the sunrise with a loved one. Talk about starting the day off right!
4.Bike To Work
If you are one of the lucky few that live within walking or biking distance from work, take advantage of it! Not only will you get plenty of that good, old fashion fresh air, but you will save money on gas – Always a plus!
5. Plan An Office Outing
Plan an office field trip to the beach, the park, or the pool – Just do something fun so your brains can recharge and refresh!
There are many more creative ways to enjoy your beautiful summertime weather, while continuing to work a full time job. Get out, get tan, and have fun!
