It’s August and the weather is hotter than ever! Extreme heat warnings are unavoidable in the summer, but there are a few things you can do to limit the tossing and turning in bed or extra sweating. Whether you’re looking to cool down quick or choose to visit a facility with luxury amenities to keep you refreshed, you’ll be feeling like new in no time. Read more to learn great tips on staying cool this summer.
- Bed linens made of lightweight cotton promote ventilation in the bedroom.
Sleep like an Egyptian
- This involves dampening a sheet or towel in cold water. After it’s cool and wet, use it as a blanket.
- Choose cotton based clothing that’s loose and comfortable.
- Make your bedroom even cooler by adding a full bowl of ice and placing it in front of a fan. The breeze from the fan will pick up the cool water as the ice melts, creating a cool, refreshing mist!
Cool Your Pulse
- Apply ice packs to pulse points at your wrists, neck and behind your knees. Even letting your hands run under cold water will bring down your body temperature.
- Taking cool showers brings down your core body temperature and stimulates your body.
Turn off the Lights
- Light bulbs give off heat! Fortunately, summer means sunlight until 8-9PM. Take advantage of the natural sunlight and refrain from turning your lights on for as long as possible.
Cool Your Feet
- Cool down your body by placing your feet in cold water! Or, if you’re feeling hot in the middle of the night, keep a bucket of cold water near your bed and dip your feet in!
