The next few days are going to be triple-digit scorchers. Dog days are here. Make sure you keep your cool.
Here are some tips:
Drink lots of water.
Cover up with loose-fitting clothing that breathes (cotton is a good choice!).
Take advantage of air-conditioned entertainment/educational venues such as museums, movie theaters, arcades, libraries.
Go window-shopping at the mall or big-box store.
Take a trip to the mountains. On the average, it’s usually about 10 to 20 degrees cooler.
Make it a point to walk on the shady side of the street and to park in the shade.
Pull the drapes closed and keep the garage door down during sunny hours.
Go swimming or rafting–make sure to wear sunscreen and wear large-brimmed hat!
Pretend you’re a kid again, turn on the sprinklers and frolic!
