Summertime boredom often stems from not having anything to do. But let’s face it, your laziness is the primary reason why you’re bored. There are a lot of fun things you can do on to make better use of your free time for the next two months! Here are a just a few inexpensive ideas to get through your slow days!

Volunteer

Make your summer more meaningful by spending your time helping others. Look for volunteer groups within your area that you’d like to be a part of—like Muni PH, CARA Welfare Philippines, WWF, and more! It’s definitely better than wasting your days away watching Netflix shows or playing games on your computer.

 

Hold a garage sale

Think of it as motivation to start cleaning your room, like what your mom keeps nagging you to do. Set aside all the clothes, accessories, toys, and every other pre-loved item you have and sell them on online shops like Shopee or Lazada, or at your own garage sale. Not only will you rid your room of unnecessary clutter, but you’ll be earning from them too!

 

 Start a garden

If you don’t have a garden in your house, then it’s time to start building one! It’s relaxing to grow and tend to plants once you get the hang of it, and it’s a nice routine to follow every day. If you don’t have a front or backyard, then creating an indoor garden is just as fine, if not even more exciting to do because you can also spend time decorating your little green space.

 

Learn a new skill

Dedicate your time expanding your skill set while you still have the luxury to do so! Learn something that will benefit you in the future, or something you would enjoy doing. Here are some of our suggestions.
