SO before it slips away completely, running between your fingers like the sand on that beach you wish-you-were-on-right-now, let’s take a look at a few of those things that make summer “summer”. Because they’re not all the same. One person’s strawberry ice cream sundae is another person’s sticky mess.

Life Path 2: Pull an all-nighter under the stars with your BFF
What’s summer without at least one night spent under the stars, chatting endlessly to your bestie?
The upcycling trend breaking Pinterest at the moment involves transforming your old trampoline into your very own swinging bed. (Yup – seriously!) Which we say is just perfect for laying back and gazing skyward, as the Moon rises and the Sun sinks low. So set that fizz on ice, and let’s kick back…

Life Path 8: Go Glamping!
Why slum it, when there’s an adventure to be had with all the modern trappings of comfort!?

Life Path 11: Spend the day on a boat!
Not only is water so incredibly healing (not to mention handy for cooling down on hot summers days – we’re talking physically and emotionally) – it’s also one of the most fun things you can find to do!
Take a road trip out to the ocean, lakes or your closest body of water. Hire a kayak, a canoe, and paddle your way out to freedom! Or if you’re a little less energetic, borrow a little motorboat and go explore! Be sure to stay safe (obvs) and let the magic of the water overtake you…
Life Path 22: Organize a Street Party!
Who better, to make happen the one thing we all want most – fun and community combined! Of all the free things to do this season, street parties rule. For kids, elders, and everyone in between, get out the bunting and get together!
But someone needs to make it happen. (This isn’t about doing it all yourself – get delegating! A simple barbeque, or go the whole way with fireworks!
It may seem like a lot to manage, but boy will it be worth it (and you’re up to the job!)
Life Path 33: Watch an Outdoor Movie!
Maybe you’re lucky enough to have a local cinema society that hosts screenings outdoors in the long summer months? If not, then hosting one of your own, in your backyard, is a tip-top activity for the season!
String up a sheet, borrow a projector and show one of the amazing indie films out this year. From Time of the Sixth Sun, to We the Uncivilised…There are a plethora of fantastic, activating and inspiring films out there that deserve exposure.
And who knows, you could create a ripple effect of quiet (or not so quiet) activism too…
