Here at Timberland in Savannah, GA, we want you to have the most enjoyable summer possible. To help you do just that, we’ve provided a few tips on how to fight the heat this summer.
Drink water. You hear this one all the time, but that’s probably because it can’t be stressed enough. This is one of the simplest ways to regulate your core temperature. Drink water regularly throughout the day to avoid getting thirsty and avoid dehydration. Headaches are one of the most common signs of dehydration. Increase your water intake when doing any sort of physical activity or when being outside in the summer sun for long periods of time. Use a refillable water bottle and keep it with you wherever you go.
Dress for the weather. Choose loose-fitting, light-colored, lightweight clothing to assist with your endeavors to stay cool. Natural fabrics that breathe let the heat out; think cotton and linen, and stay away from synthetics. Wickaway fabrics, the kind of clothing usually worn when exercising, is a good choice.
Go for a swim! Swimming is a refreshing way to stay cool and exercise at the same time. Go for a dip in our beautiful Timberland pool provided for the use of all of our residents. Just be sure to wear sunscreen to avoid getting burned.
Wear a hat. It’s amazing what a little shade can do to keep you cool. A hat or an umbrella is a good way to keep the sun’s rays away. Avoid getting a sunburn on your face
Sunscreen. The Sun Safety Alliance writes, “Apply a sunscreen with a SPF of 15 or higher whenever you’re outdoors. To achieve adequate UV protection you should use products that provide broad spectrum protection, which means protection against both UVB and UVA rays. For broad spectrum protection, look for products that provide an SPF of at least 15 and contain ingredients like Avobenzone (Parsol 1789) or zinc oxide.”
Limit vigorous activity. Limiting vigorous activity during the hottest part of the day will help you stay cooler. Choose instead to exercise in the early mornings or late evenings when the temperature is a quite a bit cooler.
Gadget or gimmick? There are several gadgets out there are designed to help you stay cool. Use a spray bottle to mist your face. A personal fan, umbrella hat, or even a thermal-cool neck wrap can make a huge difference in your comfort — go ahead and try them out. Don’t worry about looking ridiculous; at least you will be cool.
Seek air conditioning. If the temperature is above 90 degrees, fans may not be enough. Seek out an air-conditioned venue.
Eat right. Avoid heavy foods and opt for foods high in water content — fruits, salads, and soups are all good ideas. Foods can also be a great source of water to keep you hydrated and avoid headaches from the heat.
