Summers are officially here. Those days when we find ourselves in a puddle of sweat every day and when we’re constantly thinking of ways in which we can make these days more bearable, apart from eating lots of mangoes of course. So, even though we can’t completely take the heat away, here are 30 fun things we can do to make summers more bearable.
1. Pick a sport
Playing any sport with your friends, like basketball, football, cricket or even pool volleyball would be great.
2. Get on the road
A long drive to a hill station or a weekend trip to a resort is a fun way of beating the heat.
3. Do a movie marathon
Watch your favourite movie one after another or binge on the movies you were waiting to watch.
4. Indulge in your hobby
Indulge more in your hobby like dancing, singing etc. They are always fun and you’re bound to have a good time.
5. Discover new places to hangout with your friends
Going places and that also with your friends is the best way to catch up on everything that was on your pending list.
6. Try different types of dishes from different places.
Hmmm! Gourmet delight. Is there ever a better reason to smile?
7. Go shopping
Of course you need new clothes for this summer. With all that sweat, rain and dust, shopping is the most important indulgence of summers.
8. Spend a day at spa
Bit of pampering, rejuvenating and relaxation is so refreshing.
9. Ride a bike
Feel the breeze while riding a bike and if you don’t have one, then rent it for a few hours. Isn’t bike riding fun?
10. Go to a water park
Water park + summer = perfect
Create memories by taking pictures with the people you love.
Plan sleepovers at your friend’s place as they are just so much fun!
13. Host a house party
Ditch the disc and hang out with your friends in your home. You avoid the traffic and heat but still have loads of fun.
So, you’re a bathroom singer. Big deal. It doesn’t mean you can’t do karaoke?
15. Change the settings of your room
Some change of accessories and you can make your room look fresh and light.
16. Visit a planetarium
Our guess, last time you visited one , you were still in school. Isn’t it time for one more visit?
17. Water balloon fight with friends and siblings
Why only do so on Holi? How about doing one during the summers to beat the heat AND have a good time?
18. Attempt a DIY
Create anything you would love to and surprise everyone with your creativity.
19. Make a scrap book of childhood pictures
Scrapbooks are the best way to capture the beautiful moments of the past and you just have to have one.
20. Go to the movies
There’re some great movies releasing this summer including Te3n, Udta Punjab and Raman Raghav 2.0.
21. Make a new friend
Get out of the digital world and make new friends.
22. Play paint ball with friends
It’s not kiddish but loads of fun.
23. Go Ice skating
If you know how to skate, this is a must do.
24. Visit an amusement park
Whether water world or not, they are always fun! Time to ride on that roller coaster again.
25. Go for a 5D movie
Have you seen one yet? You should.
26. Go swimming
Can there be a better sport or way to escape the heat? I don’t think so.
27. Read a series like Harry Potter or Percy Jackson or The Clifton Chronicles
Stay inside your room and wander into the life of books.
28. Go to the major destinations in your city.
Be it in your own city or some other, just visit tourist spots and learn about their importance.
29. Indoor/board games
Take out those games lying in your closet and have a good time with your family. Indoor fun is great fun.
30. Watch a funny webseries
If you start watching now, you won’t be able to finish till next summer.
