5 Ways to Beat the Heat

Nothing screams Summer more than a good old heatwave, which let’s be honest, us British people either love it or hate it.

This week, all around the UK, there was a crazy heatwave, with temperature well above 33°c, making us hotter than cites like Ibiza, Bangkok and Barcelona. With our fingers crossed that we’ll continue to have glorious sunshine, we’ve compiled a list of 5 ways you can beat the heat this summer! 

Carry Water with you

During hot weather, many of us tend to sweat, causing us to lose a lot of water and become dehydrated. Drinking water throughout the day will help to replenish the ‘lost water’ and keep you hydrated. Not to mention, water is one of those drinks that will refresh you and is a thirst quencher. 

Block out the sun from your home

One way to stop feeling so hot is by shutting the blinds and closing all the curtains around the house. This can instantly reduce a lot of heat entering as the sun rays are essentially being blocked and you’ll be in the shade.

Dress appropriately

If you can, try to wear loose fitting clothes instead of tight clothes. The loose clothes will allow the breeze (if there is any) to enter, instantly making you feel cooler. Also, black and dark clothes absorb a lot of heat, therefore, to reduce feeling so hot, try to wear lighter colour clothing. 

Eat Light

There is a reason why we all prefer salads in the summer than the winter. As they are much lighter than your home comfort foods, they don’t leave you with that heavy sluggish feeling that keeps you warm. Also, eating vegetables and fruits will help to cool you down as a lot of them are very watery, keeping you hydrated. Plus they’re super good for your health too!

Relax

Running around causes you to get all hot and sweaty. When you get a chance, sit still and try to forget about the heat and just relax. By keeping stationary as much as you possible can, it will slowly decrease your body temperature so you don’t feel so hot and flustered.
