You’ve been counting down for months and you’ve got weeks of free time ahead of you. All sounds great, right? For a year you’ve been busy with exams, coursework and obligatory nights out and now you’re probably back at your mum and dads house, bored and restless.
For some of you the idea of doing nothing is absolute bliss – but for many of you free time screams boredom! Don’t sit there scrolling through your Instagram feed and looking at your friend’s ‘amazing summer’. Take a look at these tips to help your summer become more meaningful and fun.
– Get into a routine – even if this is getting up in the morning to have a healthy breakfast and work out. You can then arrange to meet some friends or go for a walk.
– Get a temporary job – this will distract you from boredom and will help you appreciate your free time more. You’ll also start earning a bit of extra cash to help you fund your summer holidays.
– Have quality you time – treat yourself. Go out for a coffee and read a magazine – just getting out of the house helps.
– Have things to look forward to – arrange something to do with your friends at least once a week and you��ll feel happier.
– Set goals and keep track of your progress towards them – this could be from bagging a work experience placement to saving up for a holiday with your friends.
– Vitamin D – go and get some sun when you can! Even if it just means going for a walk around your town or village.
– Spend quality time with friends and relatives – make the most of seeing old friends and family.Who knows how much time you’ll get to do this when you graduate and get a ‘real job’.
– Plan a holiday – you can get loads of cheap deals if you search around and even going away for four days can brighten your summer up. Stick to European destinations to keep the prices down.

I loved it there !
Brickworks is a great home for whoever comes to live in Dublin for a while.
The friendliness of the staff along with the welcoming environment make for a great place to live. When I first entered the room, it felt like a hotel room : comfortable, modern and very liveable.
The neighborhood is as calm as it gets and you get to the most animated streets in 15mn.
The sunset view on the rooftop is the cherry on the cake.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
