Why Should you Start Now to Plan for Summer.

{Collaborative Content} The summer is a great time to get outdoors, try something new, visit someone new, and generally have fun with family and friends. Living in lockdown in the UK it can feel like the summer is a way off, and that dreams of summer trips and sunny BBQs feel quite a long way off at the moment. However, last summer allowed for some fun, with small gatherings allowed, as well as trips abroad and the UK, so it makes sense that something similar will happen this year, especially with the vaccine being rolled out at an amazing pace. 

If you don’t want to let the summertime run away with you, and before you know it you’re thinking about autumn, then it can be a good idea to plan now for the summer. Although you may not be able to book things right now, if you have an idea of what you want to do, it will make it easier to just go and do it, when restrictions allow. Making plans will help it to be a summer to remember.

Planning for a trip
If you’ve grown a little sick of the same four walls, then making plans for a trip could be a good idea. Although there are more risks to going abroad, it could be easier to plan for a holiday in the UK this year. With self-catered accommodation it can be easy to stay in your bubbles and get away to visit somewhere new. You could even think about using short term student accommodation in the summer, as there are very few students using them in the summer. They can often be pretty good rates as the accommodation is simple, but in some cool towns and cities in the UK. Make a list of the kind of places that you would like to visit and then you can go from there and see what will be available.

Try something new
With lockdown and being at home more, you might have already been trying something new, such as learning a new instrument or starting up a new hobby. But with some good weather to enjoy, hopefully, you will be able to try something else new in the summertime. What would it be for you? You might like to try gardening, hiking somewhere different, painting, boating, open-water swimming, and so on. If you want to be indoors, then there are likely to be many online classes available still, from cooking to learning French.

Relaxing time
Even if you plan to stay at home, getting some time off work to relax a little can be so worth it. One thing that you could start to do is to create a bucket list for being at home. How about making a list of books or movies that you want to read or watch before the summer is out? How about creating a list of jobs or projects that you want to get done but just haven’t got around to? You could simply put together a list of the things that you want to do at home, like sunbathe, have a BBQ in the garden and a picnic in the park.
