  1. Go hiking

Nature has tremendous power to revitalize your body, soul and mind. A nice hike is the perfect way to exercise and enjoy the serenity of life outdoors.

If you love to read, find some good literature and immerse yourself in it. Reading doesn’t just help you escape the stresses and chatter of life, it sharpens your brain, increases your exposure and therefore raises your intelligence. Playing some jazz in the background will help you create a tranquil environment to motivate you as you peruse through the book.

  1. Have fun with your friends

  • Try a Road Rally – How about you get your friends and roll out on a mobile scavenger hunt then the one who comes back first with all the things listed wins, the losers can buy beer or dessert whatever price you all agree on.

You could even try composing some music.
