1- Summer 2- Heat 3- Wave!
WHOA! is it just me or is it hot in here?
Some ways to keep you and your kiddies cool and well hydrated:
keep pitchers in the fridge so you remember to drink plenty of cool water, iced herbal tea, diluted juice; avoiding sugars and caffeine
put on a dampened t-shirt; this is great for young children or toddlers when you don't have AC (people in the desert do this) you can even try wearing wet socks to bed
clothes blinds on South side of your home or office and avoid that solar thermal effect
stay in the coolest place of your home i.e. basement
stick a bottle of skin lotion in the fridge and after at least half an hour, moisturize!
wear ligh coloured flowing clothing - specifically avoiding black, dark blue and red if you will be out in the sun
take a cool foot bath
place a bucket of ice or ice packs by your fan
avoid using the kitchen oven, clothes dryer, plug-in kettle or any other heat source
turn off electronics
eat watermelon, cucumber, tomatoes, oranges and other thirst quenching raw fruits and vegetables
avoid constipating foods like dairy or bananas
if you really can't stand the heat in your appartment go to a mall or cafe where the air is cooled
kids complaining? make paper fans!
once the sun sets go for a stroll barefoot in the grass
imagine yourself making snow angels naked
