Tips to Stay Cool This Summer around the Home 


- Drink at least eight eight-ounce glasses of water per day – more if you’ve been outside or have been active. 
- Try to avoid exercise in the heat of the day – do it before 9 a.m. or after 5 p.m. 
- A bowl of ice cubes and water set in front of a moving fan will help cool the air. 
- Run cold water over the inside of your wrists.  
- Loose, light-colored natural-fiber or wicking clothing is best. 
- Wear your hair up in a ponytail or bun as most heat escapes from the top of your head. 
- Wetting down a white cotton towel and draping it around your neck is great for when you are outside or have just finished a workout.  
- If it is cooler outside, open windows only in the room you’re in and the one on the opposite side. Position a fan to blow from one window to the other to create a cross-draft. 
- Shower regularly to keep your pores unclogged and efficiently sweating. 
- Instead of incandescent light bulbs, which give off a lot of heat, use LEDs.  
- Keep blinds down during the day to reduce the heat from the sun. 
- Always use sunscreen when outdoors.  
- A hat and sunglasses should also be worn outside during the day.  
- Use the outdoor grill instead of cooking inside.  
- Avoid dehydrating beverages such as alcohol and caffeine.
