It's HOT out there!

Christine Hopkins - Tuesday, July 03, 2018

Here in the northeast we are currently experiencing a heat wave.  Yes, it is summer…and yes, it gets hot during this season.  According to Wikipedia, a heat wave is measured relative to the usual weather in the area and relative to normal temperatures for the season.  

If you are experiencing unusually hot weather, here are some tips to stay cool according to Reader’s Digest:

-Make a peppermint tea mist by brewing a pot of peppermint tea and placing it in the fridge for several hours.  Pour it into a spray bottle and mist yourself.  The menthol gives your skin a fresh feeling.

-Chill your mattress by filling socks with rice and placing them in the freezer by day and at night about a half hour before getting into bed, put the sock between the sheets.

-Eat spicy food, which increases blood circulation so you will sweat and feel cooler as the sweat dries.

-Lower your body temperature by applying a bottle with ice-cold water to pressure points like ankles, wrists and behind your knees.
