Summer: The best time of year to think about the future
During the year, we’re constantly in a rush, distracted by errands, and there’s no time to stop for a second to think about what we want for our future. Deciding what we’re going to do for the rest of our lives is not something we should take lightly nor something we can think of while waiting in line at the supermarket.
Summer is starting and this is the time when we can put a stop on our routine. The best moment to disconnect, take a few days off, enjoy the weather and clear your thoughts.
A lot of us are closing cycles in order to start new ones, and usually, new cycles catch us at confusing times. There are plenty of uncertainties that can begin to suffocate us. What are you going to study? Where are you going to work? In which city? With what money?
Clear Your Thoughts
The best option in this situation is to plan, but before completing that step we must be certain of what we want. This is a decision that should be taken calmly, trying to listen to ourselves.
Go to a Quiet Place
If you can, escape the city, go on a trip to a place that’s peaceful and that you like—maybe the beach, the country side, a lake, etc. We recommend you use that time to ask yourself various questions.
What things do I like? Where would I like to study? Where do I see myself in 5 or 10 years? Think about what’s important to you, what makes you feel comfortable and happy; if you want to be close or far from your family, or if you want to see new places, etc.
Sunbathing in Front of the Sea
Probably a good example of a moment of tranquility to think about your future is sunbathing at the beach, looking out into the sea.
Relax your mind and your emotions, take advantage of the fact that you’re not in a stressful situation and that you’re away from things that might confuse you.
The summer is definitely a good period to get to know ourselves and to understand what is it that we want to achieve in the future. Don’t forget that that the most important thing is to be sure of your decisions and not to take lightly those that may determine your future.
