Tips for Staying Cool This Summer

May 17th, 2018

With the summer season upon us, the temperatures will begin to rise, and along with the sun may be some fairly hot days as well. Beat the heat and stay cool in your Foster City apartment this summer by following the tips below to keep cool even on a steamy summer day.

Keep Your Clothes Light and Loose

Dark and fitted clothing can cause you to retain body heat which will make you sweat when temperatures begin to soar. Stock your closet with fun and fresh light summer colors that are loose fitting and flowing to keep your temperature down and give your body a little room to breathe.

Stay Hydrated With Cold Beverages

Most people know that drinking hot soup can warm you up. The same theory holds true for cooling down. Drinking ice-cold beverages can help lower your body temperature from the inside keeping you from becoming overheated. It is also vital to drink more during the summer as you will lose more water from your body when sweating and dehydration occur if you don’t replenish your fluids.

Pull Down the Shades on Sunny Afternoons

While the sunshine may be beautiful during the peak times of the day, that bright afternoon sun can beam in your windows and raise the temperature of your apartment. Instead, enjoy the morning sunshine or a beautiful California sunset and draw your shades, blinds, or drapes during the afternoon. This will help keep your apartment cooler and save you on your energy bill.

Keep Some Cooling Neck Wraps Handy

Whether you are relaxing in your apartment or enjoying a jog, neck wraps are an easy way to lower your body temperature and cool down quickly. All you have to do is soak them in water and wrap them around your neck.

Take a Relaxing Dip in the Pool

The summer season is the perfect time to take advantage of the pool at your Foster City apartment. If you are expecting some warm temperatures for the day, plan to get your daily exercise in by doing a few laps around the pool, or take the time for an evening swim at the end of a hot day to cool you off.

Don’t let the summer heat make you sweat; follow the tips above to cool off and enjoy the sunshine. Looking for a great apartment with a pool to help cool you off? Stop into The Plaza luxury apartments to find the best floor plan for you.
