How to Stay Cool This Summer

The summer is here and it is hot!

As a matter of fact it’s getting hotter!

You probably love having the luxury of having air conditioning but you would also probably love to find some ways to stay cool so that you don’t have to constantly run the air conditioning.

Here are some tips on keeping cool during these hot summer months:

  • If you work out then try to workout during the cooler times in the day such as early in the morning and later at night. Then when you come home you won’t need to crank the AC to get your body temperature down.
  • Same goes for outdoor activities. It’s always fun to play outside and have some outdoor fun but when you come home you will feel the need to cool the house down even more than it would need to be without those activities. So try to do those activities during the cooler times of the day.
  • Drink tons of cold water! Keep water bottles in the freezer so that you can grab a cold one whenever you need it! Cold water will cool the inside of your body down which will help with your outside temperature as well.
  • Take a swim! If you don’t have a pool then just take a cold bath or shower to cool yourself down rather than cranking the AC.
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol as these will promote dehydration which will heat your body up (plus it isn’t healthy to be dehydrated).
  • Eat cool foods such as salads. Keep the oven baked foods for the winter. The oven heats your house up and the hot food heats you up!
  • Purchase a fan! Fan can be a great substitute for the AC.


There are many different ways to stay cool! Take advantage of these things so that you don’t have to have a constant stream of air conditioning going!
