It’s Summer. The Heat is On!!!

The Heat is On

So it is hot out there. It’s funny people seem surprised by the summer heat, like they didn’t know it was going to happen.

Much of this hot thing is a mental thing anyway. It really is.

At the beach 75 degrees is considered a hot day.

So here is a few ways to deal with the heat.

  1. Accept the heat.

It is hot out there and it isn’t going to go away.

Complaining about it does nobody any good.

Heat is all about your perception of it.

  1. Use your God given cooling system.

God gave us a body that was meant to adapt.

That means you have to sweat a little to cool down.

That means you have to provide fluids to keep your internal coolers going.

Drink at least eight glasses or more of water a day. Colas and caffeinated drinks don’t count.

  1. Don’t overdo things.

Heat slows you down, so slow down.

Yes, it is summer everything is hectic but, slow it down a bit.

Do a little each day instead of longer work hours.

Even doing fun stuff in the sun can be exhausting, so slow it down cowboy.

  1. Plan, to beat the heat.

Plan your day according to the heat.

Get out early before it is too hot to do the hard stuff.

Wear a wide brimmed hat in the sun.

Use sunscreen to keep from burning (SPF 30 or better).

Wear cool clothing, cotton breathes. Loosen up and put on some shorts, so what if your legs are white.

Be smarter than the heat.

  1. Relax.

It’s summer; God gave it to us for a reason.

Enjoy the weather God provided.

Stay away from the weather page and don’t look at the thermometer.
