How To Stay Cool During the Intense Summer Heat

Summer is a great time. There are tons of things to do and free time to go out and enjoy life. Life is truly great in the summertime, but it can also feel pretty rough at times. The summer sun is great for a tan, but the heat can get pretty bad.

It can get really, really hot in Yuma. Whether it’s the first or hundredth summer, we are all just trying to survive the summer sun. It may seem like the heat is inevitable, but there are plenty of things we can do to endure it a little bit better. We’ll walk you through some of the tricks out there to help you cool down.

Ways to Beat the Summer Heat

High heat means a lot of sweating in the hot summer air. All of that sweat means you need to make sure you are staying hydrated. Water is always important, but when you’re losing a lot it becomes even more important. You’ll also want to try and keep the sweating to a minimum, so you don’t dehydrate as fast. If you do start heating up, then place something cold against your wrist or neck. These points are the bodies best cooling points and will help you feel more at ease.

There are a lot of DIY options to cool down your home without blasting the air conditioning all summer long. If you put some ice in a Styrofoam box and cut some holes in it, then place a fan on top and you have a small, DIY air conditioning. Facing your window fans outwards, instead of inwards, overnight can help keep things comfy inside the house.
