Find The Perfect Summer Destination Based On Your Personality

Find The Perfect Summer Destination Based On Your Personality

Finally, summer is here! It is time to relax and feel the warm of the sun. Maybe a fresh cocktail at the sea’s shore or a camping night with a bonfire could be in your plans, but how do you decide? Keep reading these summer vacation ideas and check which one your personality and taste identifies the best.

Cabin in the woods

    If you like nature contact and outdoor activities, this might be the perfect summer plan for you. Most of us like the idea of a wood cabin surrounded by trees, grass, leaves and hearing the birds singing, doing some hiking and bonfires at night. Sounds good, right? You can prepare your all-terrain truck, get some food, snacks, and groceries.

    This is a perfect destination for adventurous, creatives, artists, emotional & anxious personalities. 

    Summer at the beach

    There is nothing more enjoyable for extroverts than a day with their friends at the beach. A series of studies from the University of Virginia found that people get energized by being around other people and they can easily have some of the most fun playing in the sand and waves on a sunny day. Perhaps your favorite holiday plans are to chill out with friends for a while; maybe taking some drinks, snacks, playing volleyball, listening to music or swimming.

    Friendly, carefree and sensible people really enjoy this activity. 

    Big city shopping

    If you like style and movement, there’s no better place for you than a big and fancy metropolis. You will definitely love New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles & San Diego down-towns for example. They are full of elegant stores, restaurants, bars and attractions. What about spending a day through the “Michigan Avenue” (Chicago) streets, walking around Central Park or taking a sightseeing tour in Hollywood – sounds like fun right? You just need to take care of yourself following the safety tips as always: avoiding dark and lonely places in NYC, asking for a private shuttle instead of taxi cabs in Downtown LA or checking some reviews before eating. Enjoy!

    Brave, determined, active and ambitious personalities love this kind of trips. 

    Barbecue at a friend’s house

      If you are the type of person that likes routines, following step-by-step instructions or working at a steady pace, you definitely would enjoy visiting a friend and having a relaxed afternoon drinking some beers and preparing some barbecue ribs. These types of people are more interested in connections and relationships. They also admire practical solutions and live in the “here-and-now” moment. So, raise your hand if you feel identified because you’re certainly not alone!

      One of the most favorite plans for sociable, friendly and loyal personalities.

      Valley winery

      There are not many places like these in the world. Wine regions or valleys have something special that leaves all visitors captivated. Maybe the perfect set of wine glasses, gourmet food, peaceful places and beautiful landscapes have what it takes to be your idea of a perfect getaway? So, you better choose between all the USA Wineries  like the famous Napa Valley or the Valley Vineyards in Delaware. Do you want to be more international? There’s a famous place located in Ensenada, Mexico that actually has the best wineries in the world – I’m not lying, take a look of it on TripAdvisor / Valle de Guadalupe.

      Great plan for peaceful, charming, adventurous and conservative personalities. 

      Museums, art galleries and coffee shops

        America has many unique cities full of museums, artistic and cultural festivals, and underground-secret-hidden cool sites to discover. Do you enjoy walking around looking for an architectural, beautiful, quiet place to read a book or take some pictures? Or, what about drinking a coffee at a particular coffee shop? Then, you must visit Los Angeles with its secret art or San Francisco’s Indie places like The Castro Theather and Sausalito with tons of art galleries and restaurants. Out from Cali, New Orleans is known because of its artistic inspiration and beautiful streets (yes, this town offers much more than just the famous Mardi Gras).

        Ideal summer  for quiet, artistic, creative and calmed personalities.

        Amusement parks

        Americans love them. Whether you have family or not, going to an amusement park is an incredible idea for this summer. If you want to have fun, adrenaline and a bit of madness you have many options where you can go, such as Six Flags parks, Universal Studios (and Island’s of Adventure) , Knotts Berry Farm, Hersheypark, Cedar Pint, etc.

        Mostly bold, brave and fearless personalities

        Music Festivals

        Let me guess; you love partying, don’t you? The typical easygoing, funny, adventurous human being that loves to enjoy and party everywhere. Of course, music festivals are your hit and good news for you, there are many events coming this year. You just should take a look at some survival tips and advice about do’s and dont’s, what’s allowed and how to deal with the adventure.

        Advertising

        Outgoing, impulsive, happy and creative personalities love these experiences.  

        A Road Trip

          Let’s face it, a road trip is not for everybody, lots of things can happen in the meanwhile and only a specific type of person would enjoy it. If you tend to be more naturally active, expressive, social and curious person, you will be enjoying the trip from the moment you leave your home. If you prefer talking more than listening and most of the time you’re thinking out loud, finding yourself easily distracted and doing lots of things at once, it’s probable that your next vacations could take route in a Forrest Gump adventuring style.

          7 Simple Rules to Live by to Get in Shape in Two Weeks

          7 Simple Rules to Live by to Get in Shape in Two Weeks

          Learning how to get in shape and set goals is important if you’re looking to live a healthier lifestyle and get closer to your goal weight. While this does require changes to your daily routine, you’ll find that you are able to look and feel better in only two weeks.

          Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to get in shape. Although anyone can cover the basics (eat right and exercise), there are some things that I could only learn through trial and error. Let’s cover some of the most important points for how to get in shape in two weeks.

          1. Exercise Daily

          It is far easier to make exercise a habit if it is a daily one. If you aren’t exercising at all, I recommend starting by exercising a half hour every day. When you only exercise a couple times per week, it is much easier to turn one day off into three days off, a week off, or a month off.

          If you are already used to exercising, switching to three or four times a week to fit your schedule may be preferable, but it is a lot harder to maintain a workout program you don’t do every day.

          Be careful to not repeat the same exercise routine each day. If you do an intense ab workout one day, try switching it up to general cardio the next. You can also squeeze in a day of light walking to break up the intensity.

          If you’re a morning person, check out these morning exercises that will start your day off right.

          2. Duration Doesn’t Substitute for Intensity

          Once you get into the habit of regular exercise, where do you go if you still aren’t reaching your goals? Most people will solve the problem by exercising for longer periods of time, turning forty-minute workouts into two hour stretches. Not only does this drain your time, but it doesn’t work particularly well.

          One study shows that “exercising for a whole hour instead of a half does not provide any additional loss in either body weight or fat”[1].

          This is great news for both your schedule and your levels of motivation. You’ll likely find it much easier to exercise for 30 minutes a day instead of an hour. In those 30 minutes, do your best to up the intensity to your appropriate edge to get the most out of the time.

          3. Acknowledge Your Limits

          Many people get frustrated when they plateau in their weight loss or muscle gaining goals as they’re learning how to get in shape. Everyone has an equilibrium and genetic set point where their body wants to remain. This doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve your fitness goals, but don’t be too hard on yourself if you are struggling to lose weight or put on muscle.

          Acknowledging a set point doesn’t mean giving up, but it does mean realizing the obstacles you face.

          Expect to hit a plateau in your own fitness results[2]. When you expect a plateau, you can manage around it so you can continue your progress at a more realistic rate. When expectations meet reality, you can avoid dietary crashes.

          4. Eat Healthy, Not Just Food That Looks Healthy

          Know what you eat. Don’t fuss over minutia like whether you’re getting enough Omega 3’s or tryptophan, but be aware of the big things. Look at the foods you eat regularly and figure out whether they are healthy or not. Don’t get fooled by the deceptively healthy snacks just pretending to be good for you.

          The basic nutritional advice includes:

          • Eat unprocessed foods
          • Eat more veggies
          • Use meat as a side dish, not a main course
          • Eat whole grains, not refined grains[3]

          Advertising

          Eat whole grains when you want to learn how to get in shape.

            5. Watch Out for Travel

            Don’t let a four-day holiday interfere with your attempts when you’re learning how to get in shape. I don’t mean that you need to follow your diet and exercise plan without any excursion, but when you are in the first few weeks, still forming habits, be careful that a week long break doesn’t terminate your progress.

            This is also true of schedule changes that leave you suddenly busy or make it difficult to exercise. Have a backup plan so you can be consistent, at least for the first month when you are forming habits.

            If travel is on your schedule and can’t be avoided, make an exercise plan before you go[4], and make sure to pack exercise clothes and an exercise mat as motivation to keep you on track.

            6. Start Slow

            Ever start an exercise plan by running ten miles and then puking your guts out? Maybe you aren’t that extreme, but burnout is common early on when learning how to get in shape. You have a lifetime to be healthy, so don’t try to go from couch potato to athletic superstar in a week.

            If you are starting a running regime, for example, run less than you can to start. Starting strength training? Work with less weight than you could theoretically lift. Increasing intensity and pushing yourself can come later when your body becomes comfortable with regular exercise.

            7. Be Careful When Choosing a Workout Partner

            Should you have a workout partner? That depends. Workout partners can help you stay motivated and make exercising more fun. But they can also stop you from reaching your goals.

            My suggestion would be to have a workout partner, but when you start to plateau (either in physical ability, weight loss/gain, or overall health) and you haven’t reached your goals, consider mixing things up a bit.

            If you plateau, you may need to make changes to continue improving. In this case it’s important to talk to your workout partner about the changes you want to make, and if they don’t seem motivated to continue, offer a thirty day break where you both try different activities.

            I notice that guys working out together tend to match strength after a brief adjustment phase. Even if both are trying to improve, something seems to stall improvement once they reach a certain point. I found that I was able to lift as much as 30-50% more after taking a short break from my regular workout partner.

            Final Thoughts

            Learning how to get in shape in as little as two weeks sounds daunting, but if you’re motivated and have the time and energy to devote to it, it’s certainly possible.

            Find an exercise routine that works for you, eat healthy, drink lots of water, and watch as the transformation begins.
