How To Beat The Heat!

How to Beat The Heat -- Ways to Stay COOL! So far the Summer season has proved to give the United States some bizarre weather. Many states have been suffering from early Summer season heatwaves, wildfires, droughts and strange storms. Several scientists have noted this is just a taste of what's in store for us regarding weather patterns for 2012 and beyond. I'd like to offer ways you and your loved ones can Beat this Extreme Heat: 1. Wear light colors and loose clothes -- breatheable, natural fabrics like cotton, silk and linen. 2. Stay cool and hydrated. If you are an athlete, make sure you replace your minerals with proper electrolytes**. ** Rebound Fx is a perfect sports drink for that! Item #13231SP If you find yourself going in and out of the air, remove your hat and shoes when you go indoors to give your body a chance to cool off. 3. No Air Conditioning (AC)?? Many cities have provided cooling centers where families can hang out. Here in Philadelphia, the public libraries have extended their hours so people can spend the hotter parts of the day in a cool place. You can also check out your local shopping malls and/or movie theaters on these sweltering days. 4. I used to laugh at the folks who walked around with towels in their pocket..but I now know they are on to something. If you carry a cool or frozen water bottle with you, take a moment to douse your face towel with cool water. Guys, this is great for your bald heads...and a cool reprieve as the sun beats down on your head. 5. Here's my favorite tip...take frequent cool showers. In the summer months, I'm famous for taking 2-3 showers a day. It feels good to the skin and makes you cool. Added bonus, run your bathroom fan after your shower. This helps to pull the humidity out of the house. Now for the kiddies, you can also set up a pool in the backyard, and take a dip. 6. If you do have AC, and don't have the central AC system, it's not a bad idea to add fans to assist with air circulation. Oftentimes, it makes you feel cooler than being in air-conditioned house. 7. To save on energy costs, consider setting your AC to low and keep the temperature at 70 degrees. For me, I stay cool, but don't freeze. Also, close your fireplace, curtains and/or blinds to avoid losing cool air. 8. Not sure about you but when it's hot out, I don't have much of an appetite. All good for keeping slim. But another suggestion is to minimize oven use. I use my George Foremen grill a lot, toaster oven and lots of stove top cooking. All three offer less heat in the kitchen. 9. Live in a multi-story home? Spend a good chunk of time on the lower levels. The adage "heat rises to the top" really applies in cases of extreme heat! You'll be much more cooler on the lower levels. Lastly... 10. Wait til the evening -- when the sun goes -- to run dishwashers, wash clothes (using dryer) and other heat-producing appliances. Be safe, stay cool and work these tips to your benefit. Be sure to check in on the invalid and elderly! Indira Wilburn 267.297.1557
