The summer holidays are finally here. After burning the candle at both ends for the exams, if you think you need a break you are right. And don`t worry if you are not one of those flying off to some exotic foreign locales. There`s a lot you can do right where you are.
For the intellectually inclined - This is the time to get out that list of books you`ve always wanted to read and start demolishing them at a very fast rate. And while your friends are following other meaningless pursuits, why not hone your personality by reading up on the finer points? "How to win friends and influence people` by Dale Carnegie is a recognised classic! Or may be you can even take up an online course!
For the sporty type - A few vigorous laps in the pool can be a refreshing way to begin the day. Follow this up with some volleyball with your friends and some cricket on TV! If you are sporty and adventurous an early morning run on the beach or a turtle walk at night might liven up things a bit.For the home birds - Pick up some beauty tips from your mother and watch yourself getting transformed into a beauty overnight! (If mum`s too busy Sitagita will be glad to help). You can try concocting your own refreshing recipes. A simple and vitamin enriched recipe is a mix of carrot and tomato juice with just a dash of ginger. Mix your own vegetable and fruit juices for some tantalising mock-tails. It`s a great way to beat the heat and overcrowded caf©s.
For the artistic - If you sketch well take to it seriously. Who knows, you may graduate from still life and even get as popular as Picasso soon! Liven up your room with your own artistic creations be it collages or paintings. You could even embroider your own curtains!Go back to your forgotten hobbies and take off from where you had left off. Have a summer full of fun and activities!
