It's hot outside (kinda), the grass has been freshly cut, there's meat on the BBQ, the sound of clinking pints reverberates around beer gardens, and Facebook statuses about festivals are starting to roll on in. Yes, that's right: summer is basically here, and what better way to celebrate its arrival than with photographer Rory DCS's new book Visual Self-Help Volume 1: How to Be Fun. "Having fun is universal,'' says Rory. ''Being excited is even better than being relaxed, which is what all self help manifestos are directed at. I wanted to take all the fun things floating around in the ether that we see around us all the time and distill them into some of what I considered to be the most important points for people to remember.'' So print out this guide, memorize it, stick it on your bedroom wall, and ultimately stop being a bore, because it's time to have some fun.

Your dreams are boring (Stop talking about them)

Laugh, A LOT (A fun accessory for any outfit)

Have a positive outlook (No matter how shit your boat is)

Get rose tinted glasses (Fun people give everyone the benefit of the doubt)

Make party starters (I'm a G and T guy)

Commit to the party (And always bring some fun with you)

Get lost (Finding fun is the best fun)

But have an exit strategy (Uber, for when you've overstayed your welcome)

Leave tidying to professionals 

Don't get mad (It is very unbecoming of a funster, and yes I did just make that word up)
