Beat the heat!

It’s gonna get hot this week! Here are some tips on keeping cool so you can sleep at night and stay healthy.

First, the house- much as you might want to keep the windows open in hopes of getting a breeze through the house, the trick is to close the blinds or curtains and windows as soon as the sun hits the house. This will keep the heat outside and the cool inside. You can crack the windows an inch, but no more for a little breeze if you must. Most of us are gone to work during the day. You’ll be surprised at how cool the house feels when you keep out that hot sun.

Then when the day cools off, open everything wide! Even opening cabinet doors can help get rid of any hot air trapped inside. For a good night’s sleep, leave windows open at night and/or put a fan in your bedroom for a little breeze to keep you cool. Try taking a quick cool shower before you go to bed. This will get rid of the daily grime and lower your body temperature a bit.

Lastly, make sure you stay hydrated! Drink plenty of water and non sugary fluids.

Pleasant summer dreams!
