Things You Need To Beat The Heat This Summer
It is amazing how the one season a year we look forward to the most is also one that can be the most uncomfortable. While you yearn for tank tops and flip flops, you can’t help but suffer every time you have to be outdoors for an extended period of time.
Summer also comes with a lot of downtime, as you might be on holiday, or perhaps, if you’re lucky, your boss will cut work hours short so the team can spend more time outdoors. Ironically, it also means we get bored during the summer.
If you are looking for a way to beat the heat this summer and keep busy, here are a few things to try:
Learn a new instrument
Did you know it took John Lennon just one summer to learn how to play the guitar perfectly? Okay, that probably isn’t true, but it might be for some people.
Summer is a great time to learn an instrument, as you can play both indoors and out, and there are no gloves to interrupt your flow. You might not make a living from it, but then again, that’s what Lennon’s Aunt Mimi told him, and he made a huge success of himself!
Learn a new indoor sport/game
With hot, sweaty outdoor games no longer an option, it is time to think inside the box. A good way to pass the time is by playing multiplayer or single player games at home.
Unfortunately, most sports require equipment and a lot of space, which you may not have. But everyone has a smartphone, which is what you need for mobile gaming.
If video games aren’t your thing, try your hand at a bit of bingo and see if you’ll be getting lucky this summer!
Learn a new language
Summer is a great time to sharpen skills that will help you excel at your job or personal relationships. Learning a new language is a good way to accomplish both – it always helps to have another language on your CV and it helps you make new friends.
Think of how accomplished you would feel if, at the end of summer, you added a new language to your LinkedIn profile. You could decide to tie this in with a visit to the country where the language is spoken.
Grow your web presence
If you are an entrepreneur or even an employee, your online presence is very important. From a regularly updated blog to professional yet inviting social media pages, how you are seen and perceived on the web is increasingly more important for career progression.
Keep yourself busy by first-off purging your social media pages of pictures, thoughts, comments, likes or shares that can get you into any trouble. You can then work on updating your content.
Another aspect of your web presence to focus on is your website or blog and your SEO. If you run a business, chances are you have a blog and quite often have to outsource the content. If you would like to handle more of the writing, you need to learn how to optimise your posts for search.
Learn how to edit pictures or videos
As part of your web improvement, a good skill to learn is photo editing. While you are at it, you might throw in a bit of video editing too. Think of all the great pictures and videos you have on your phone that you can’t share because the quality doesn’t look great.
With some basic photoshopping skills, you will not only make your pictures look great, but you will also save your business money in the long-run as you begin to handle some of these tasks yourself.
Catch up on Sleep
This might seem like a waste of time, but you need to get some rest during your holiday (if you are on holiday). With all the stress from work, you need a break from activity every once in a while. Enjoy the comfort of your air-conditioned home and amuse yourself with books, games and online shopping.
