The first few days of summer break or our semester break feels great because we finally get a chance to kind of relax. We will find ourselves motivated to go out with friends, catching up on a lot of sleep, and just relaxing, however, after the first two weeks pass by, you will find yourself beginning to feel antsy. Not everyone is going to be out partying every single day during the summer or vacationing in another city or country, so once our brain and body adjust to being “on break,” we find ourselves feeling very bored and unmotivated to do anything.
This is why a lot of us end up spending our summers lounging around our house, switching from one screen to the next. At the end of the day, we end up feeling horrible for not doing anything, only for the cycle to repeat itself again the next day. Thankfully, there are a bunch of leisure activity ideas, like picking up on painting, learning a new language, joining a group or club and so on. However, we will be focusing solely on writing.
You do not have to be great at writing in order to want to start it. It does not matter what your field is, because writing regularly can be a beneficial practice for everyone. So, what you should do is to vow to write for at least half an hour every single day. You can write about anything you want, be it a personal diary, a journal for random thoughts, or a book or story that you want to work on. Once you get into the groove of writing, you will find yourself writing for over an hour straight, and you can stretch that to even longer time durations, helping you feel good about yourself, and finding a productive way to spend your summer days.
