Doesn’t it seem like summers are continually getting hotter each year? We think so! Check out this list of 11 ways to beat the heat this summer:

  1. Drink plenty of water
  2. Use a portable mini fan
  3. Eat cold, nutritious foods (like fruit, veggies, cold sandwiches, etc.)
  4. Hop in the pool.
  5. Apply ice to your body’s cooling points (head, underarms, wrists are typical)
  6. Open windows if there is a breeze to promote airflow
  7. Exercise- your body acclimates to the heat.
  8. Use curtains when the sun is beating through
  9. Take a cold shower/bath instead of a hot one
  10. Keep your hair up to keep it off of your shoulders
  11. Keep a spritzer bottle of water to spray yourself throughout the day
