As the summer temps have been reaching their peaks, I have been researching ways to stay cool without air conditioning—and without stripping down of course! Here are my top picks:
Put your clothes in the freezer. Just don’t wait too long; you don’t want to cut yourself with sharp frozen clothes.
Find some tile. Tile always stays cooler than wood or carpeted floors and will feel great on overheated toes. (This little trick is frequently used by my puppy!)
Take a cold shower. Nothing is better than rinsing off in a refreshing cold shower after a sweltering day at the office!
Rock a muumuu. Or other varied flowy garments! Any slight breeze will be a delight, flowing through the light fabric.
Sit in the dark. Yes it might sound weird, but we tend to associate light with heat, so we can trick ourselves to thinking it’s cooler when we are in the dark.
Eat some ice cream. Mmm mmm mmm. Ice cream on a hot day, it’s just like you’re a kid again!
and don’t forget, WATER WATER WATER! (maybe a nice chilled glass of vino, too!)
