The weather is warmer than other states here in Tucson, AZ, and the summers can get sweltering almost to a point of unbearability. In order to keep yourself safe and cool through the hot summers, we’ve decided to share some tips on how to stay cool in this week’s One East Tucson Blog!
One of the best ways to keep cool is to ensure that your body is hydrated. Water is the perfect liquid to do just that. As you are hydrated, your body will be able to compensate for the external heat your body is experiencing by perspiring (sweating). Keep a bottle of water handy so you can maintain that hydration throughout the day. Even if you don’t think you need to drink water, you probably should because it’s hot!
What you wear will have a profound effect on how you will feel during the day. Since the summer is hot, we suggest choosing clothing that is not only light but breathable as well! Fabrics like linen and cotton do the job well. Since fit is so important, we recommend a looser fit so can have mobility and breathability! There are plenty of fashionable lightweight clothing out there, so keep your eye out for some good pieces to add to your wardrobe.
One of the best ways to keep cool is to not get hot at all! Staying inside is a good alternative to going out into the extreme heat. While indoors, you can use the time you have to, declutter your wardrobe, clean your apartment, or even take a nap! Make use of your apartment’s air conditioning to keep cool! If you have to go out, use every opportunity to walk inside buildings to escape the hot heat of Arizona.
