Green Tips For Cooling Off This Summer

August 11, 2010

Green Ways To Reduce Body Heat:

Wear clothes in natural fabrics.  Fabrics such as cotton, hemp, and linen breathe better than synthetic fibers and naturally wick moisture away from the body.

Eat cool. When the weather is hot, dine on salads and sandwiches instead of large, protein-rich meals.  Oven or stove top cooking heats up your house as well.

Stay hydrated.  Avoid alcohol and caffeine in the heat because they can promote dehydration.  Drink more water than usual or try an electrolyte replacement drink if you are sweating a lot.

Cool off with water.  Soak your feet in a tub of cold water, take a cool shower, or put a wet washcloth on the back of your neck.  Keep a spray bottle of water in the refrigerator and spritz yourself throughout the day.

Head down and out.  When your house is hot, the basement is usually the coolest place in the house, or try going to the movies or the library – anywhere that is air conditioned.
