Beat the Summer Heat

Posted on Aug 2, 2016


Summertime and the livin’ is…HOT! For the first time on record, every square inch of all 50 states is forecast to see above-average temperatures for the next three months, according to a forecast map from the federal government’s Climate Prediction Center. Meanwhile, if you’ve been following the news, you’ll know that a 12-year-old boy died while hiking in north Phoenix amid triple-digit temperatures. Oppressive heat can be deadly.

What are some ways you can beat the heat? For starters, stay inside in air-conditioned places where the temperature is regulated. If that means a trip to the local mall to see a movie or just staying at home, relaxing in front of the TV, by all means, do it! If you’re home isn’t air-conditioned, find a public place that is and spend as much time there as possible.

Of course, there’s always the old standby: going to the local pool. It could be a municipal pool or a friend’s pool. A dip in a pool is a great way to cool off on a hot summer’s day.

This should be your season of the year where you drink much more water than normal. Bring bottled water with you wherever you go. Refill your bottles at public drinking fountains. When you’re at a local restaurant that has an ice machine and offers free refills, right before you leave fill your cup up with ice. You can take it for drinking later, after it melts in the hot car over time.

Thank God for trees and the shade they provide. When you have the opportunity to get out of the direct, hot sun, take some time to stand or sit under a tree where the temperature is cooler.

If your body gets overtly hot, take a cold pack and press it up to your forehead or other part that “needs it.” Something as simple as putting your bare feet into a tub and letting cold water run over them for 30 seconds can cool your body off quickly. Best wishes for beating the heat!

Great place to heal!! Exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is I didn't come sooner!! After seeing three doctors with a solution of cortisone injections in my back it was time to try something more natural. While I've always understood the importance of chiropractic care I've never fully tried it. Everything they have done here is tailored for me! I started feeling better by the 3rd adjustment! I haven't taken a single pain med! Praise God!! Don't wait to get the care you need!! I wish I hadn't. Five stars and more!! Bonus....I was given all the equipment I need to do my stretches at home along with an in depth nutritional support system! Amazing!
