It’s finally that time again! Summer is approaching so rapidly it’s insane that the school year is almost over. The most enjoyable time for most students worldwide and so much free time to do whatever you please. Many different places, foods, views, and other things to experience and enjoy. It’s a time when you can shed all the stress and layers of responsibilities off and you get to indulge in a variety of exciting and fulfilling activities.

Amusement parks are a great way to spend time with your friends and family. There are many close to New Jersey, such as, The Funplex, Six Flags, Runaway Rapids, and Dorney Park. I highly recommend the Funplex because the pricing is great and the rides that come with it are definitely worth it. The Platinum Band is only a small price of $59 which gets you unlimited indoor and outdoor rides. Also included are the full waterpark, 1 hour of free bowling, and a free video game. The Extreme Band is only $10 less than the Platinum Band and it includes unlimited indoor and outdoor rides. Unfortunately, the water park, the arcade, and the miniature golf are excluded from it. An upcoming hotel is also getting built next to the amusement park. A great place to take a fun vacation and relax.

If amusements and rides aren’t your thing, you can consider learning a new skill. If you’re a person who wants to make money while they have so much free time on their hands, consider learning how to do something that can make you some money. You can create a fashion line if you know that’s something you would be interested in. You can learn how to do makeup, hair, nails, eyebrows, or anything beauty related. You can also consider cooking and baking as an option. Who doesn’t love food? Learning a new skill during summer break is a fantastic way to make most of your free  time and broaden our horizons.

Lastly, you can also use your free time to prioritize your physical and mental health. You can work on self-care and changing different bad habits that you have to become the best version of yourself. This is something that I personally, strongly recommend. Exercising regularly, practicing mindfulness and meditation, connecting with new people, having a more balanced diet, and limiting your screen time are great ways to care for yourself. Doing all of those things will change your state of mind and your health in general. I’m sure everyone would want to come back to school looking different and feeling different as well.

The summer break is an opportunity to relax, explore new interests, and recharge for the upcoming year. Choose activities that align with your passions and goals, and make sure to enjoy yourself! Have a great summer!
