Tips to Stay Cool This August
Does the summer heat have you dreading going outside? You’re not alone! With the summer heat that’s in full swing this August, it’s good to have fun things planned that will help you stay cool. Let’s face it, no one wants to go outside and sweat continuously because that is miserable. Check out some of our fun tips to stay cool while you’re outside!
Tip #1: Restrict your outdoor time to the evenings
A great way to avoid the sweltering heat this month is to schedule outdoor activities to the evenings. Since the bulk of the heat is during the middle of the day, moving your schedule around this will be very beneficial to you. If it’s the weekend and you want to do something during the day, be sure to check your weather reports to see the best time to be outside and be prepared for heat.
Tip #2: Always bring water with you
If you have to be outside, be sure to drink plenty of water. To ensure that you do this, bring a water bottle with ice water in it whenever you know you’ll be outside for a long period of time. It’s important to stay hydrated all the time, but especially when it’s hot. You’ll sweat a lot more in the heat and dehydrate yourself a lot faster.
Tip #3: Buy a mini portable fan
Having a handheld fan in your car or bag that you can easily carry around and use at any time will be a lifesaver when heat strikes randomly. This is also a great option to have when doing any outdoor activities such as hiking or just walking around the zoo. Handheld fans are also great for any upcoming trips you have and are easy to help cool down individuals of all ages!
