We’re smack in the middle of summer, which means the heat is nearly unbearable. The sun is shining, the temperatures are rising, and you are probably sweating! Here are three simple, easy ways to keep cool in these long, summer days.
Clothing: If you’re outside, wear light colored clothing. Dark clothing captures the sun’s heat, which will just raise your body temperature. Light clothing will reflect it and keep you cool! Additionally, wearing loose clothing will keep you feeling light and breezy, and won’t trap the sweat and heat in your body.
Activities: Try staying inside as much as possible. If you’re looking for something fun to do, go to the movies, a museum, restaurant, etc. Try to stay in air conditioning or by a fan. If you want to be outside, spend a day by the water. The temperatures will be cooler and there will be a breeze if you decide to go down by the shore.
Hydration: Stay hydrated with water! Drinking water throughout the day is key in making sure your body temperature stays cool and you stay hydrated. Trade regular water in for hint water. This sugar-free, zero-calorie, fruit-flavored water is a great way to spice up your hydration routine. The fun, fruity flavors will complement your summer day perfectly!
