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.

          How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

          How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

          Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

          You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

          Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

          1. Work on the small tasks.

          When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

          Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

          2. Take a break from your work desk.

          Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

          Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

          3. Upgrade yourself

          Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

          The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

          4. Talk to a friend.

          Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

          Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

          5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

          If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

          Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

          Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

          6. Paint a vision to work towards.

          If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

          Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

          Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

          7. Read a book (or blog).

          The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

          Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

          Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

          8. Have a quick nap.

          If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

          9. Remember why you are doing this.

          Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

          What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

          10. Find some competition.

          Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

          Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

          11. Go exercise.

          Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

          Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

          As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

          Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

          12. Take a good break.

          Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

          Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

          Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
