Staying Cool and Comfortable in Summer

Posted on 6/11/2017

“Oh my God!” “What a heat!”

These are all signs that summer is near. Time for vacations, time to travel. But what about those who are not travelling? We should find ways of staying cool and comfortable in very warm weather (to remain cool in hot weather). How can we make it happen?

People have different lifestyles. So, let’s start with their food. In summer we often eat ice cream (Be careful that it doesn’t melt). We should drink more water and juice; drink at least 8-10 glasses of water or even more. Whenever our body heats up from physical activity or hot weather outside, our body begins to sweat, and to maintain the water level of our body we need to drink lots of water. Eat plenty of leafy vegetables and fruits.

Now about the clothing. People wear cotton clothes which are most breathable material during summer, it may be half sleeves or full sleeves, and better option is half sleeves. Do not wear dark colored clothes as it absorbs more heat than light colored clothes. White is the best, because it doesn’t absorb much heat. When you go out cover your head with cap or scarf. Also try to carry water with you. More over try to avoid the journeys during noon unless it is that much important. During summer we need to think of save our precious resource of water, because there might be a shortage of water during summer in some countries like Kuwait etc…

If you are stuck in the heat and can’t find get to a cooler place, apply ice cubes wrapped in cloth or any cold object to your bodies best cooling parts (pulse points) like your wrist, and neck, you will cool down more quickly and effectively. Summer heat is worst when you are trying to get some shut eye, because a higher body temperature makes it harder to fall asleep. If you feel like an insomniac in summer don’t worry, cool your head with a chilled pillow, or sleep on top of a wet sheet.

Better keep your A/C or fan on to keep the interior of our house cool. While we take special precautions and care of ourselves during summer we need to consider our surroundings which include our friends and relatives too. Advise and discuss with them as well how we can “Beat the Heat”.

Wishing all of you a Happy Summer Vacation.
