Whether you live in Florida (like me) or are still sweating it out in some other part of the country – the temperature does not seem to be dropping outside. It’s almost unbearable especially when you have errands to run or just want to relax in the sun!
While there’s nothing we can do to change the weather, there are still great ways to beat the heat!
Luckily, Real Simple magazine has issued an article to help out their readers on Ways to Beat the Heat. So, here are 6 ways to help you through the end of the summer – without melting!
Not only does it help with cost, but it keeps your house cooler. So, hang clothes out to dry to give it a fresh smell!
Opting for a lighter type of food, such as fruits and veggies keeps you hydrated — which keeps you cool.
Keep Cool While You Compute
This cool little invention, the Kensington FlyFan, plugs right into your USB port on your computer. Now you can finish up your work and keep cool at the same time!
Close windows and doors to keep the heat where it belongs — outside!
Lose your shoes (and your clothes for that matter) — it helps keep your body temperature down.
The mind is a tricky thing. If you think it, it will be. Studies show that if you think yourself cool — you’ll be cool. Maybe it doesn’t work all of the time — but it’s worth a shot! [via Real Simple]
