Tips On How To Beat The Heat

According to AI Overview, there are several simple tips to help beat the heat during a heat wave.

Stay Hydrated: Drink lots of water and eat foods with high water content. Avoid excessive amounts of alcohol, coffee, and sugary drinks.

Dress For Hot Weather: "Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing made from breathable materials like cotton or silk. You can also try wearing synthetic fabrics like Coolmax or going barefoot so sweat can evaporate from your feet. Don't forget to protect your face from the sun with a wide-brimmed hat or other head covering."

Keep Your Home Cool: "Close windows and shades during the day to keep the sun out. Avoid using the oven or other appliances that generate heat."

Stay Cool: Take cool showers, and use air conditioning or fans. Apply a cold compress on your neck and wrists.

Limit Outside Time: "Stay indoors, but if you must be outdoors, avoid the hottest time of the day outside and limit the amount of time you are in the hot sun."
