The scorching summers are back. And with it, comes back a dull routine where you get exhausted way sooner than usual because of the relentless heat in our relentlessly hot country. However, we don’t want you to fall into patterns of boredom because *it is too hot to do anything*. Here are some fun and quick activities for you to indulge in to keep yourself fresh and rejuvenated throughout the season:

In the confines of your air-conditioned homes, invite all of your friends/family for a fun reunion. Honestly, we all know that getting dressed to go out in summers is a task but that shouldn’t keep you from having a good time every now and then. So, bring the party back home and forget the whole ‘getting dressed’ hoopla. You can have a nice potluck lunch with your extended family or a match night appetizer-rendezvous with the gang. Chilled drinks are on the host! Minus the heat, you still get to have delicious food and that too in the soothing shelter of your home and precious company of your favorite people.
Go For A Swim

With the heat becoming unbearable by the hour, wouldn’t we all just enjoy being drenched in cool blue waters for hours? A quick swim is a solution to forget the woes of the summer, no kidding there. You can even get volleyball and have a fun game with your friends in the pool. Just remember to put on a sunblock about 20 minutes before you dive in or you’ll stay tanned for weeks to come.
Pro Tip: A summer pool party even makes for great social media posts. *Ek teer se do nishana*
Evening Strolls By The Beach

If you’re in a beach city, grab your sunglasses and go have some fun in the waves and the sand. Any time after 5 pm is a good time to go unwind by the beach. There’s nothing bad about a summer day, that a cool breeze by the sea can’t fix! If you’re one for fun, we know you won’t be able to resist playing kabaddi with the soft waves of the sea. Don’t miss out on the rides and food on the beach. Just thinking about it makes us want to pack a picnic basket!
Live On Ice Lollies

Apart from the mighty watermelon, ice dishes and golas are sure shots to beat the heat. What is summer without some kala khatta golas? We even suggest making fruit ice-lollies at home. There are ice cream kits available in the market to make your life easier. Just pick your favorite fruit, blend in with some sugar and freeze in the given container with the ice cream stick. Open your freezer to home-made ice cream every hour!
If you can’t migrate to the colder regions during the summer, these life hacks should be enough to cover you for a few months. You might lose some sweat but there is no reason to lose your mind this summer. Wear cool, comfortable and light clothes to let your body breathe and more importantly Stay Hydrated!
