Summer. It finally hits. You’ve waited for it for so long, dreamed of it, imagined all the fun things you’re going to doing in the summer. Uh-oh, it’s hot. Really really hot. Was summer this hot last year?
How many of us have looked forward to the summer months to come, to be left moaning and feeling miserable because the heat and humidity get so unbearable? It happens pretty much every single year. Be prepared in the future by following our top 5 ways to stay cool during the summer heat.
Wear Light Colors
Have you ever noticed that the majority of clothes in summer are lighter and brighter? This isn’t just a fashion statement, it’s a way of keeping cool. Light clothes reflect more heat, keeping your body a lot cooler than if you were wearing dark shades. Hop into the bathroom and cool off beforehand it will make a huge difference!
Time to embrace light clothing!
Take a Trip
Winter and fall months are usually spent daydreaming about all those trips to the beach you can’t have because it’s too cold. Take advantage of the summer and go! It may seem tiresome because of the heat, but is there a better way to cool off than by taking a dip in the ocean? Grab your friends and head to the beach, just don’t forget to avoid the midday sun (it’s the hottest at this time) and wear ample amounts of sunscreen.
Eat the Right Food
Pigging out with friends at a BBQ may seem like a great idea at the time, but overeating leads to becoming hot and bothered. Try to avoid eating too much and eat foods that are cooling. Lots of fruit and salads are great. Treat yourself to an ice cream every now and then too! Life’s for living, after all.
Open Your Windows
Turning on the AC and the fan may seem like a great idea, but too much AC is unhealthy and fans just circulate warm air. Crack a window every now and again to get fresh air into your home. It’s healthier than the AC, saves you money AND cools you down.
Switch off Electrical Items
