You’re a graduate, done with school and now in the work force. What does that mean? No more sleeping in, no more lazing around all day and no more 104 days of summer vacation. Although, you don’t have as much time as you did as a kid, that doesn’t mean you don’t have summer. So, get your own dose of summertime fun whenever and wherever you can!
1. Take a vacation leave.
Prepare your tickets, line up your itinerary, and leave all your worries behind.Take time off from work! Put yourself in a different atmosphere and get your mind in vacation mode. Make plans to go on that Euro-trip you’ve always wanted or take a cross-country road trip up North. Just make sure you tell your superior about your plans weeks before to help manage you and your team’s workload. Better yet, go on a corporate trip/team building together!
2. Give yourself a break.
You don’t have to be sipping coconut milk in Bali to be able to unwind. Just find the time to take a break in between the daily grind. Get your own piece of summer by grabbing a weekend to a local water park, an overnight trip to hot springs in Laguna or enjoy a one-day beach trip in Batangas. Summer isn’t always about dream getaways but it is also about giving yourself the downtime you need.
3. Spend it with others.
You may have used the “I have work.” card for the nth time but summer is the chance to reconnect with the people in your life. In the humdrum days of the year, summer is a special time where people feel that they can have time off. So, visit your province and exchange how are you’s with your relatives. Say yes to that high school reunion and get lost in nostalgia. Ask your work friends out for a Friday night drink and talk about anything except work.Use summer as an excuse to do special things with special people!
4. Make time for yourself.
Chillax! Summer is the perfect time to take a cool off – from everything and focus on yourself. Give yourself a relaxing water spa day, work on a mural project or start a shell collection. Whatever gives you the alone time to clear your mind, relax and be thankful. So, grab a serving of Halo-halo, Mais con Yelo or Sago’t Gulaman and enjoy your summer days!
Whether you’re on a beach trip vacation or enjoying your home staycation, it’s about giving yourself the summer you deserve. Giving your best starts with being at your best. So, take care of yourself and be the best you with JRP.
