Week #90 – Summer Fun List! (37 random ways to have fun this summer)

Last year this time — I asked you to share your ideas and plans for FUN over the summer.

And for TWELVE WEEKS we counted down different ways to enjoy ourselves.  Because while adults are usually busy planning their kids’ summer fun — they often overlook their own!

And I want to make sure YOU have fun again this summer!

So I’m recapping the final list…37 random suggestions for FUN during the summer months.  And I’ll say it again: I know you have things to do, to see, to get done.  Maybe you’re even planning things so that your kids/family/friends/coworkers are sure to have a good time.

Don’t forget to make plans for YOU to have fun, too!

Because as I said last year: the best way to teach others to have fun — is to have fun yourself!

Your Happyness Challenge for the Week Ahead: How do you plan to have FUN this summer?  We have a full THIRTEEN WEEKS ahead of us!  And while I know some of you may groan at the reminder that summer is limited…the seasons serve to remind us that time is fleeting.  Not just with weather…but with life.  We never know what tomorrow, or next month, or next year will bring.  Don’t let it pass you by!  Make this the summer you take that trip, cross off that bucket list item, make that leap, try that thing, get serious about that project, or just get plain silly!  Peruse this list, brainstorm with the family, share it with friends!  And report back — because it’s no fun to keep all the fun to yourself!  😉
