There is no way of escaping the hot and scorching summer days ahead but instead of blowing their short fuses, cussing like a salty sailor on shore leave and complaining all day long that can certainly strain their personal relationships with their loved ones, people should just look for different ways to beat the heat. Aside from the Yuletide season and Thanksgiving Day, summer is the best time to spend quality bonding moments with your friends and family because life is very unpredictable and nobody knows how much time they have left ticking on the clock and sand trickling down the hourglass.
With that said, instead of letting the oppressive heat get to their heads, people who are on the brink of blowing their tops and exploding to smithereens should step back, take a couple of deep breaths and cool their jets as they look for ways to savour the sweet days of summer with their loved ones. For those who are bit by the travel bug and afflicted with wanderlust, they can pack their bags, put their travel pillow from Singapore on their heads and go to exotic locations as they take a well-deserved vacation with their friends and family. They can travel to the Caribbean Islands so that they can soak up the sun and work on their tans or they can visit the wild savannahs of Africa if they are looking for a grand adventure where they can appreciate majestic animals like pride of lions, herds of elephants or a barrel of monkeys.
For folks who want to earn a little extra on the side, summer opens a lot of windows of opportunities to earn money as long as they are willing to work hard and go the extra mile despite the hot weather and humidity. Opening a lemonade stand on the street is a booming idea that will surely turn into a big hit in the neighbourhood because everybody and their grandmothers are thirsty and they want something cool and refreshing to soothe their parched lips, mouths, and throats. For students who want to earn extra cash so that they have enough spending money that they can splurge on movie tickets and shopping sprees with their friends, they can mow the lawn of their neighbours, deliver newspapers or babysit for the brats living next door.
As for couch potatoes and homebodies who want nothing more than just to lounge inside the house all day long so that they do not have to feel the harsh glare of the roaring sun outside, they can stay cooped up inside and opt for a staycation. Couples can put luxury bed linen on their beds, light some scented candles and jump on the sheets for an afternoon delight while their younger children play video games on their consoles and binge watch their favourite shows on television. But before locking the doors and cranking up their air conditioning units, they should look for a bed linen sale on shopping malls and finish their grocery shopping first to make sure that they have enough supplies to survive without having to go out of the house for a long stretch of time.
