We love summer. Truly. Promise. We spent all winter just dreaming of the days we could finally break out the shorts and catch some rays at the beach. But during those colder moments, we forgot just how uncomfortably hot the season could really be. So we’ve come up with a few simple tips and suggestions on how to enjoy the warmer weather a bit more comfortably.
1. Sip on a Frosty Beverage
It’s the perfect time to bust out the blender (or upgrade to a new one!) and get to work on your favorite smoothies and shakes while staying hydrated. Mix up a big blend of leafy greens and power-packed ingredients for one of your meals, or get a little sweet with a chocolatey dessert shake.
2. Eat Less Salty or Spicy Foods
Spicy foods are notorious for making you sweat, and salty foods add to dehydrating the body. Stick with lighter meals filled with fruits and vegetables that will keep you hydrated and comfortable!
3. Keep Clothing Loose and Light
It seems kind of like a no-brainer that you wouldn’t want to wear tight or heavy clothing during the summer months. Now’s the time for flowing shirts, skirts and dresses in breathable and light colored fabrics. Don’t worry if you don’t have a lot of these pieces in your wardrobe, Accela Wash® and other Quick Wash cycles on our washers can keep them in your regular rotation.
4. Upgrade Your Fan or A/C Unit
After a certain point, that dusty old box fan you got back in college just isn’t cutting it anymore. Check out our variety of reliable and affordable fans and A/C units! From table, tower, box, rotating stand, high-velocity and window fans, we’ve got something for everyone. Oscillating stand fans make sure every portion of the room feels the breeze, and window fans can help blow fresh air in! And if you really can’t stand muggy, thick rooms anymore, our ENERGY STAR® qualified air conditioners are just the trick. Available for the window or portable room units, they’ll help you cool down in no time.
5. Chill Your Skincare Products
SPF, regular lotions and other products from your daily routine will feel like a dream after a quick cool down on a warm day. No more going without protective lotions or makeup for fear of feeling sticky or caked on in the heat! If you’ve got one of our Grab-N-Go™ refrigerators in your home, the easy access door makes a great spot for storing!
