With temperatures rising all over the country, it’s important to do as much as possible to stay cool and hydrated. These tried and true tips from all over the country are your best bet to keeping energy costs down without sweltering in the heat.

  1. Don’t Be Too Welcoming – What do we mean by that? Keep the curtains down during the day; Although it might look like you are a grumpy or a bit vampire-esque, keeping the shades drawn will help resist the sun’s heat from entering through the glass windows, which acts as an amplifier.
  2. Aloe Vera is Not Just For Sunburns – Try replacing your normal daily moisturizer with aloe vera. With a natural cooling effect, your skin’s temperature is lowered, helping you to stay cooler, longer.
  3. Daydream – Believe it or not, studies show that actually imagining yourself in a cooler environment, say a ski resort or swimming through a lake, can actually help. Your body reacts to these daydreams, lowering its overall temperature.
  4. Pretend it’s Never 5 o’clock. Anywhere – Most of us would love to grab an ice cold beer on the hottest days, but that’s really not going to help too much. The alcohol will actually dehydrate your body, making you more prone to heat exhaustion and stroke. Instead, try an ice cold Club Soda or Perrier. It may not sound as appealing, but it sure will be in the long run.
  5. Eat Spicy Foods – Although it seems counterproductive, the heat stimulates receptors in the mouth that will trigger sweating and blood circulation, which is your body’s  natural way of cooling itself off.
