Beat The Summer Heat
Beat The Summer Heat

It’s another scorcher in the Finger Lakes today…and we’re all looking to beat the heat!

Here are some of the more unusual tricks you can use to keep yourself cool from the Daily Mail:

Lick your wrists.  Monkeys lick their wrists when they’re hot.  It works for humans too.  Of course, you COULD just run them under cold water for 10 seconds but isn’t licking them more fun?

Get the hot salsa.  Spicy foods actually cool you down.

Keep your lotion in the fridge.  That way, when you put it on, it will keep you cold for a while.

Turn off the TV.  Modern TVs generate a TON of heat.  So when you’re not watching, turn it off.

Put your mattress on the floor.  Since heat rises, the closer you get to the floor, the better it will feel.  You should also put your fans on the floor and angle them upward.

Eat frozen yogurt instead of ice cream.  Yogurt has a higher water content than ice cream, so it’s better for keeping your body temperature down.

Do your best to make sure you (and your pets) stay cool this week!
