Heat stroke—or worse, hyper thermia—are very real things. When your body produces way too much heat, or absorbs way too much heat, it can cause some serious damage. Hydration is key when your body is trying to maintain homeostasis, or the regulated state in this case, at a decent temperature. Contrary to popular belief, while iced water is your safest bet in cooling you down, things like pop or energy drinks will also help you cool down. Any liquid is better than no liquid. The sun is the hottest between 11am and 2pm, and sunburns are most likely to happen during that period.
Limiting your exposure will limit your chances of overheating. Hats are also crucial for blazing hot weather, keeping you cool by providing shade.
Sunglasses will protect your eyes from damaging UV rays. Also consider investing in soft gel packs that you can place underneath your sheets, or tucked between your legs wrapped in a tea towel.
Your pressure points are your secret key to happiness! Applying a little ice pack or a bottle filled with iced water will help you cool down immediately. Weird but true: spicy foods actually help you cool down. Spicy food increases your blood circulation, which in turn gets you sweaty. And, as we discussed before, sweating cools you down when the sweat cools down. It was the best way to cool down when you were a kid, and nothing has changed.
Cool down by eating a popsicle! Try these basil watermelon popsicles, adapted from Williams-Sonoma and beat the heat! Stir the juice with a spoon. Makes 8 pops. Smoothie hack: add liquids like coconut water or blend some wheatgrass in, both of which have hydrating properties. Try this strawberry-watermelon hydrating smoothie, adapted from Pop Sugar.
How does a hot bowl of soup sound on this hot sunny day? Not so good?
Choose chilled items for lunch instead. Try this spotted prawn summer saladfeaturing an assortment of Urban Cultivator-grown microgreens and herbs! Remember to reapply sunscreen every few hours to make sure you reduce the risk of burning!
