    Have a picnic. It is fun and requires little to no money.

    Go outside. Bike, jump rope, walk, run, dance, just do something. It is good exercise and it is good for your skin, too, because you are getting sun. Make sure to wear a sunscreen whenever you go outside, however, because harmful UV rays can damage your skin.

    Treat yourself to a night out at least once in the summer. Ask your mom or older sister to take you out to a movie, a nice dinner, a game of bowling, an hour or so of skating, or another enjoyable activity. You could follow up by a shopping trip or a visit to your local ice cream shop (hey, every girl deserves a little break from their healthy eating!)

    If you truly cannot afford a night out, gather DVDs or record movies on your TV, pop some popcorn, slip on you most comfortable pyjamas, and have a movie night. You could invite some friends over or make it a family event to make it more enjoyable.
