Stay Cooler Than The Other Side Of The Pillow: Some Tips

February 19, 2016 By John Torgenson

Well everyone it’s starting to heat up again in Phoenix with weather the past few weeks reaching levels up to 92 degrees. Though it’s not as hot as it can possibly be we still need to stay vigilant. Here are some tips to beat the rising temperatures and reduce possible personal injury situations.

Stay Hydrated. Obviously this one is the most important. Your body releases more fluids when it is hot so be sure to replenish yourself regularly. If you don’t drink enough water you could become dizzy or cramp up while driving or operating machinery. This leaves you liable in a personal injury situation should it arise so keep drinking that water!

Exercise At Night Or Morning. You may regularly exercise during the day but since the temperatures are rising it is important that you try and exercise at the coolest times of the day. You don’t want to overheat your body so try and schedule a jog during the evening or early in the morning. Be sure to wear reflective clothing when running at night for drivers to be able to spot you.

Eat Some Ice Cream. Because why wouldn’t you eat ice cream?

Make Your Fan Turn Counterclockwise. If you have a fan in your home be sure to set it counterclockwise. It is a cheaper option then running the air conditioning all day as the fan causes a downdraft and moves air into the middle of the room.
