Summertime is the best time to get yourself into shape. People generally lose weight over the summers because there’s so much to do. Get out there and join a Zumba class, or a dance class, or just hit the gym. Drink more water and juices and keep that unnecessary hunger at bay. Find a good jogging track near your home and firm up that tummy.
8. Catch Up On Your Fave Shows on Netflix
It’s the perfect time to binge watch the latest shows on Netflix. Sacred Games, Narcos, House of Cards, The Good Wife, Jane the Virgin, Star Trek, Stranger Things, Altered Carbon, Peaky Blinders, Brooklyn 99, Rick and Morty, Master of None and the list is endless. The Netflix TV shows should keep you entertained through your free 1 month trial. You can always subscribe and it’s worth it!
9. Create Your Own Summer Refreshers
Stop blaming the scorching heat. Instead create your own DIY summer drinks. Stock your favorite summer fruits and turn them into easy breezy refreshers. Create one with Watermelon to begin with. All you need is the pulp of Watermelon, Lime juice and ginger ale. Mix all 3, and serve it chilled. And the good old Lemon juice never goes out of style.
The coolest way to beat the summertime blues is to take some time off and bring yourself closer to nature by gazing at the twinkling stars in the night sky. You can experience the star-speckled sky along with most of the constellations and the Milky Way from the city outskirts like Katol Road and Bor. Sky gazing in Dhantoli Garden is closer to many in the city and kids can develop a healthy hobby which might turn into a passion for all we know. As they say, “Sky is the limit”.
