    1. Go to the beach! Time to ditch the indoors and tan on the sand. If you’re not the beach’s biggest fan, throw a picnic with friends or read a book under an umbrella. Breathe in the seaside air and relax.
    2. Camping. Cut yourself off from society and go into the wilderness. Camping is a great way to reconnect with nature and get on a social media break. Don’t forget to bring bug repellent!
    3. Road trip! Plane tickets to Cabo too expensive? Get some friends in a car and drive to any destination. Pack some snacks, stop to pee every so often and start making that road trip playlist of your dreams.
    4. Focus on yourself. The academic year is stressful enough so use this summer as a time to recharge. Get into some old hobbies, eat healthier or pick up journaling. This is definitely a Recharged Girl Summer!
    5. Go with the flow! Sometimes, planning isn’t your thing and you love being spontaneous. Tackle each day and its challenges, while seeing what these next few months will bring. You might be surprised by what’s in store.
