Beat the Heat: No AC

  1. Utilize box fans, ceiling fans and open windows for air circulation during the evenings; during the day keep windows closed, binds shut and curtain closed.
  2. Soaking your feet in a bucketful of cool water can lower your body temperature. The same goes with a wet bandanna or towel placed on your head or shoulder. You can spray yourself with water using a spray bottle. If that does not satisfy you, hit the shower for a quick bath.
  3. Stay hydrated!
  4. Hot air rises so hangout downstairs.
  5. Indoor hammock (mesh) instead of laying in bed.
  6. On the go, stop by air-conditioned public buildings…like the library.
  7. Avoid alcohol and caffeine.
  8. Limit your protein intake.
  9. Don’t forget about your pets.
  10. Know the symptoms and preventing measures of heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke.

Enjoy the rest of your summer. Keep cool and Be safe!
