Summer’s not over yet! All you need to throw a spontaneous braai are a few close friends, a windless day and some tasty fridge staples.

Social gatherings are the ultimate mood boosters. In fact, research shows that hanging with friends can make you happier and help reduce stress. So next time a get-together breaks out at your place, make the most of it: light a fire and whip up some braai classics using whatever’s on hand. (Suggestions here, but improvise!) Add refreshing beer cocktails and a game or two, and no one will believe you didn’t plan this party weeks in advance.
