I don’t know about you, but where I live gets HOT HOT HOT in the summer! If you don’t have a pool or an ocean near-by, staying cool outside can be tough. I don’t want to have to stay inside! I’ve come up with a few ways to beat the summer heat without keeping a bucket of emergency ice cubes nearby.
Staying hydrated in the heat is extremely important! Sipping on an ice cold glass of sweet tea or lemonade is the perfect summer drink…until the ice cubs start to melt. Try freezing tea, lemonade, juice, etc. into ice cube trays to add to your drink. You can even throw in some fresh fruit. This way, your drink will never get watered down while you’re trying to stay hydrated! If you like to work out outside, go early in the morning or late in the evening. You’ll notice, by going at a cooler time, that your workout will be longer and you’ll have more energy. Wearing baseball hats on a bad hair day or outside is a must! Before leaving the house, sprinkle ice cold water on top of your head before quickly placing your hat back on. This will keep you cooler long. You can even keep your sunscreen and aloe in the refrigerator for an instant cool down.
Be smart this summer, wear sunscreen, and remember to stay hydrated! If it’s too hot outside, use your judgment and opt for a trip to the movies or mall! Have a great summer Insiders!
