It’s summertime, which means it’s hot. Like the kind of hot where if you’re unprepared and outside for too long, you’re gonna be sweating and wishing you had a little reprieve. Take this summer seriously and cool off quickly, even on the hottest Frisco days, with these five tips and tricks.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only poor clothing choices. Dress the part this summer by wearing clothing items that are breathable, meant for warm weather, and provide sun protection. So yeah, that means pack away your cotton gear that absorbs heat and sweat, and wear all the light colors that help reflect the sun's rays.
You Are What You Eat
Stay cool by eating – you got it – cold foods. Eat foods that are high in water to help keep you hydrated. Fruits and veggies like watermelon, cucumbers, mango, zucchini, and pineapple all keep you hydrated and energized to take on a warm day. Tip: Blend your food into an ice-cold smoothie or popsicle to stay extra cool.
As noted above, it’s important to stay hydrated every day, but especially on the hottest days. Keep a large water bottle with you at all times and set reminders to chug every now and then. These handy water bottles keep you both motivated and hydrated all day long.
Get In The Water
If you’re running extra hot, the easiest way to cool off quickly is by getting in some cold water. Jump in the pool at Olympus Boulevard to bring your body temperature down. Hop in the shower and adjust the temps according to your needs. Or visit a local splash pad in Frisco, like Frisco Commons Spray Park. There’s plenty of water options, pick your favorite.
Adjust Your Schedule
In order to make the most of your day, you might need to change up how and when you do your daily activities. For example, if you need to take your pup for a walk, wake up an hour early to catch the coolest part of the day. Same goes for exercise – do it before it gets too hot and your body takes a longer time to cool off.
Hot days can still be enjoyable. It’s just a matter of knowing how to cool down quickly should you get too hot. For more lifestyle tips and tricks, visit Olympus Boulevard’s blog.
