Exciting And Productive Things to Do in the Summer Holidays After Exams
Fun Things To Do After Exams
So, my exams have ended just over two weeks ago and I know some people still have a few exams to go. But pretty much everyone will be finishing their exams soon which means there is a nearly two whole month holiday up ahead.
I've made this guide to give some ideas to you guys who have no idea what to do with that much of a long holiday and time.
I know that like me many of you would want to spend it sleeping in your bed but there are so many exciting, productive and relaxing things you can be getting up to that are much better than sleep. This guide will give you all of those ideas if you keep reading:
Productive Things To Do After In The Holidays
The first category will be all about the productive things that you can be getting up to during the holidays that will make you feel super good about yourself and help you create something before you move onto the next step: university, a job or whatever it may be you want to go on to do.
This holiday is an opportunity for you grow as a human as well improve your circumstances so that you have the opportunity to do and achieve everything you want.
Start A Side Hustle
One of the most productive ways to spend the holidays is to start your own side hustle/ business. Now that you have done your exams you have so much free time to test some of the ideas you may have or to build an income stream that can support you when you move to the next stage of your life.
Some side hustle ideas are:
- freelance writing (writing for websites like Hubpages, or starting your own blog)
- start a blog
- become a social media influencer
- start a virtual assistance business
- start a youtube channel
- sell your handmade craft on etsy or on your own website
- create a business with any ideas you have
Now your side hustle doesn't have to be your full time job if you don't want it to be it can simply be something you focus on during the holidays to build and grow and when the holidays are over you can dedicate a few hours during your week to maintain and grow it.
The side hustle will allow you to bring in some income so you can support yourself and not feel pressurised to getting a job that you may not want to but have for the sake of getting in some income. A side hustle will give you a lot more freedom.
So use the time wisely now and you can have a less stressful future.
Learn Something New
Have you wanted to learn a new language? Learn how to cook? Bake? Draw? Or even graphic design? If the answer is yes then now is the perfect time to do that since you have so much free time on your hands now that those all important exams are done and dusted.
There are so many resources out there that you can use to learn whatever you want: skillshare, youtube and so many more websites you can find if you just google in what you want to learn.
Learning a new skill is a great way for you to make productive use of your time instead of just lazing around, you can even do it in you bed if you want. Grab your laptop, a notepad and a pen and get started.
I am using skillshare to learn all about taxes and accounting. What will you learn about?
Research And Prepare For Your Next Step
The final productive idea is to research and prepare for your next step. You might be taking a gap year so you will need to plan what holidays you might be taking, how much money you will need, how long you will stay there etc. Or you might plan to be working, so you will need to research what kind of job you want to do, which company you want to work for and building you CV, cover letter and start applying.
No matter what you are going on to do next, you need to research and plan it all out so that you have everything covered and are ready to get stared on it when the time comes.
I am going to university and I am researching all about how much it costs to live there, or take a train and what is the most financially sensible decision to make.
Exciting Things To Do In The Holidays
We've gone over the productive things let's go over all the fun and exciting things you can get on with the holidays. You've worked super hard for the exams so now it's time to basically treat yourself and reward you for putting all that effort in.
Sometimes we can forget to take a moment to be proud of ourselves and give us a reward for achieving what we have.
Here are some awesome things you can do to reward yourself:
Go On A Holiday Or Staycation
The best way to have some fun is to get away and explore a new place, do new activities and be away from our normal environment. So, plan a trip abroad to a place you've wanted to go to but have never been or just book yourself a mystery holiday that some websites offer and go on an adventure and let loose.
If you don't want to spend a lot of money getting away and going abroad then plan a staycation for month, week or even a few small weekend getaway trips to a few cities in your country that you have never visited.
Going abroad can sometimes be a bit scary so taking a staycation is a great way to enjoy and explore some of the beautiful places in your country.
Do A Bucket List Of Activities
There are so many things that I've never done that are on my bucket list:
- bungee jumping
- ice skating
- scuba diving
- riding a boat
- rock climbing
These are just some of the things that I want to do and experience, I'm definitely going to use the free time I have now to tick some of these things of my bucket list.
Make a bucket list of things that you want to do and get started with getting each thing on that list done, get however many you can before the end of your holiday.
