Remember that time your firework toppled over and flew in random directions or spun chaotically on the ground? You were probably unable to decide whether that's actual extrovert fun or it's something that could get dangerous. Do you recall any incident of that sort? Maybe it's really time to think this through. There are plenty of ways to have a good time and utilise the much awaited holidays. Here's our list, what's yours?
1. CLIMB A HILL
The view from the top is always great. Especially at the time when the sky is bursting up with fireworks! Carry your little tent, a sleeping bag and a small backpack to enjoy the view from far. You'll see it raining fire in the sky while the shadows from the starlight will get softer than a lullaby.
2. GO FOR A RUN WITH YOUR DOG
Diwali is a stressful time for all dogs and pets in general due to the overload of light and sound. Here's how you can help them. Put on your running shoes and take them out of the chaos into some nearby trail. Spend quality time running or playing with them. This could help ease the stress a little bit.
3. BURN CALORIES, NOT CRACKERS
Sweets are centric to Diwali and then there's eccentric eating. That's all great since festivals are meant for feasting. However, don't give up your daily workout session even if it's just a half an hour kettlebell session or an early morning run. Burn things that actually add up to something.
4. REPLACE CANDLES WITH HIKING LANTERNS
The entire essence of Diwali is captured in lighting up the house but sometimes there may stand a chance of danger especially if you have children running around the house. Hiking lanterns are pretty little lights that can be used to serve the purpose without exposing oneself to any sort of danger.
5. SKATEBOARD AROUND YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD
This could actually be a fun exercise to be a part of the celebrations in all your friend's house. Just roll from one celebration to another!
