DAMN, it is getting HOT! The mercury is rising; the distant melodies of Michael Buble and Mariah Carey Christmas albums are getting louder and the summer holidays are just around the corner. With the festive season quickly approaching, it's time to work out exactly what you want, need and HAVE to do over the break. We've teamed up with our good friends over at Boost Mobile to bring you five (relatively easy) steps to getting the most out of the jolly season.
Whether it be the twenty days of annual leave, the two months of school holidays or the ridiculous break in between uni semesters, holiday preparation is " the key" (DJ Khaled, 2016). Sure you might not want to plan out your time off but if you enter the holiday period with a rough idea of what you want (or need) to do – you're bound to be more productive, we'd say even double productive! Apart from sleeping in until 11:00am each day, try and wake up with an activity for the day in mind: go to the gym, go to the beach, listen to new music, see a movie, do a backflip (why not), even just hug a puppy – the possibilities are ENDLESS (unlike the holidays).
The pressure of setting (and consequently failing) your new year's resolution is getting dauntingly close. Why not get a head start and put together a handful of things you want to achieve by the time work/school/uni goes back? You can even reward yourself with the completion of each goal – no matter how big or small! Went for a run? Go see a movie! Finally nailed that backflip you were planning in Step 1? Treat yourself to a night out (no backflips after booze though!!). Or even just woke up before the PM? Why not treat yourself to a new phone and bangin' plan through Boost Mobile.

Summer holidays are made to RELAX!! Sit by the pool, sleep, watch Netflix (with that Double Data fam!) have a cocktail (or two… ha ha ha) and just forget what is going on the other 11.5 months of the year. Practice your breathing and dedicate a couple of days off to YOU time – just do nothing. A clean reset of mind, body and spirit is great for entering the New Year in full swing!
And finally, one of the most important things to remember for the holidays is to have FUN! Spend your time doing things that you (and your friends sometimes) want to do. Be sure to prepare, set goals, budget, relax and above all have fun!
