Easy Ways to have a Fantastic Summer


If you’re bored this summer, we’ve got a whole list of things to do to keep the summer fun and interesting!

Meditate at least 10 minutes per day.
Get a new, fun haircut or try a different color. (Sun-In doesn’t count. Do they still make that stuff?)
Pamper yourself. Get a massage.
Adopt a shelter pet or volunteer at a shelter.
Smile at a stranger.
Start a running (or walking) program.
Read that book you’ve been meaning to read. The Will Rogers Library has plenty of options!
Call an old friend.
Order a dish at a restaurant that you have never tried before. Even better if it’s a local restaurant!
Pay for someone’s meal out. It’s easy to pay it forward, especially in the drive-thru.
Be grateful for the little things.
Visit a new town and find something fun to do there.
Replace one junk food with a superfood. Mmm, sweet potatoes. And did you know that Chick-fil-A has kale salad as a side?
Visit a local retirement home and hold someone’s hand. The Claremore Veterans Center is another great place to visit.
Plant your favorite vegetable. Perhaps a superfood?
Visit a new town.
Make a new playlist with your favorite songs from back in the day.

Have a water balloon fight.
Find good deals at a garage sale.

Host a game night with family and friends.
Create a reading space/nook in your house or yard.

Eat outside at least twice per week.

Play frisbee at a park. Or disc golf at Claremore Lake!
Meet friends for coffee or tea at a neighborhood spot like She Brews Coffee House.
