Cool Tips for the Summer Heat

sun blazingWhen the temperatures hit record highs, keeping cool seems like an impossible feat. In the winter, you can pile on the layers. In the summer, even getting down to your skivvies doesn’t help alleviate the heat you feel. The following, while they will not make the temperature drop, will help keep you and your kids as cool as possible.

Watch the Clock

Play outside in the early morning or late evening hours. Stay inside during midday to avoid the hottest part of the day. This is especially true for children who are running and playing outdoors.

Read the Labels

Cotton clothing will keep you cooler than those made of synthetics. Look for clothing made of 100 percent cotton when shopping for your summer wardrobe.

Spray Yourself

Fill a spray bottle with water and put it in the fridge. When you get really hot, take it out and mist your face. The cool water will be refreshing.

Keep It Cool

During the summer, keep body lotions in the refrigerator. That goes for sunblock, too. When it is time to put the lotion on, you’ll love the way it cools you down.

Freeze Your Water

Fill up a few empty water bottles with fresh water and pop them in the freezer. Grab them to take with you in the car or outside. As the ice melts, you have a cold drink.

Jump in the Shower

If you aren’t lucky enough to have a swimming pool in the backyard, jump in the tub or shower. Forego the hot water in favor of cool or cold.

Soak Your Hat

Pour some ice water in your baseball cap or hat and then put it on your head. The cool material feels amazing against your hot scalp.

Skip Cooked Meals

…but don’t skip eating altogether. Instead of hot meals, put together cold salads and make gelatin for dessert.

Drink, Drink, Drink

You can never have too much water in the summer. Keep your body hydrated. Make sure your kids are drinking plenty of water and, if necessary, supplement it with sports drinks containing electrolytes.

There are few things you can do that will eliminate the heat of summer. The best you can hope for is to give you and your kids some relief. When you follow the tips above, you are less likely to experience heat exhaustion or heatstroke.
