Holidays hold magical place is all our hearts, but when boredom strikes it can turn your holiday into a dreadful experience. Don’t let yourself fall into the trap of waking up in the morning and feel like you’ve done nothing the day before. Here are a few fun holiday ideas to turn your holiday fun-factor up to 11, and bring back the magic in holidays once again.
Have Some Barbeque
Nothing bonds better than a good old barbeque. Invite your neighbours and community members for a get-together! If you’ve been away from your hometown for a long time, this is the perfect excuse to have a reunion with your old mates too. Get to know everyone around you better, catch-up with family, and give the holidays a warm welcome.
Learn Something New
Take this opportunity to learn, grow and expand yourself! Start thinking out of the box as to what you can learn and add to your portfolio. Are you a writer? Learn HTML and create awesome websites on your own.. A photographer? Go on your first snorkeling and scuba-diving lessons so you take breathtaking underwater shots.
If you have a couple of weeks to spare, you might want to consider taking a short-term course. Universities like these offer crash courses that only take 2 weeks. Ever wanted to know how big fashion retailers innovate? Now you can!
And once you’re done learning…
Bake a cake. Start a travel account on Instagram. Handcraft a gift for that special someone in your life. Create a playlist of your favourite music and share with a friend. Making, building, and creating are simple ways to avoid feeling bored, relax and have that sense of accomplishment once you’re done. Just start working on it and you’ll find the momentum to and joy in it soon enough.
Explore your city
Chances are you have not been to every nook and cranny of your city and now you have all the time to do so. Visit that café you’ve drove past all this time, sit by the park, or take a tour round that art museum you always wanted to go. Who knows – you may grow to take a liking at things which you’ve never done before.
Start a blog or journal
We all love to travel, but few take the time to record the amazing experiences that happen during our journey. Some of the most influential people in history kept detailed journals of their lives. You may think you don’t need it but keeping a log can give immediate satisfaction and benefits to you. Perhaps 50 years down the line these experiences could give generations to come an insight of what life was back in the day. If you’re not sure how, here are 4 ways you can log your daily adventures.
Read a book
It’s fine if you’re feeling unadventurous. We need all need a little R&R and some alone time too, but binge watching Netflix isn’t the only way to spend the holidays indoors. Whether fiction or nonfiction books, there are countless stories to read to broaden your understanding of the world, or even get you through a sticking point in your life. Reading can also improve your mind psychologically and cognitively, which is why book readers are known to have more finely-tuned brains than those who prefer passive activities.
Go on an Unplanned Road Trip
If all fails and you’re feeling bored out of your mind, the only escape is to literally escape. Hit the open roads and go for an impromptu road trip with your family, friends, or even on your own! See the great outdoors and bask under the golden sun – you’re bound to have a few fun holiday ideas pop up during your trip. Remember to bring that epic soundtrack with you on your ultimate road trip.
