I'm looking for something witty to say up here and I'm drawing a blank - I'm sure you can do better or just edit this out. You can also use this div to get in some additional info at the bottom.
man last night's weather was crazy! One minute we're enjoying the Victoria Day long weekend with fireworks and stuff and then out of nowhere an explosion of really heavy wind and sheets of pouring rain coming down! Luckily no one was setting off fireworks at the time the wind picked up so it was all good. And don't get me wrong, I like my weather with a bit of attitude, it's always a fun experience.
And hey, seems like the weather is staying hot now; anywhere from 16-26C (61-79F). I prefer cold days over hot days any time only because it's easy to get to sleep when it's cold out but hard when it's hot out. It's easy to get warmer than to cool off is what I'm saying. Luckily over the years of living alone without AC I have figured out some tips on staying cool! Some may not work for you if you're living with our parents but who knows, anyway, here they are:1.
Drink lots of water! Hydration is a must in hot weather.2.
Have a cool shower before you go to bed. If you have a cold shower your body will try to warm itself up and thus negating what you are trying to achieve.3.
Freeze your clothes! It sucks waking up to put on warm clothes, so I came up with putting my outfit that I'd wear the next day in the freezer. They're clean, crisp and cold and will help lower your temperature for a bit.4.
Have a cold rag handy. Doesn't matter if it's a rag or an old t-shirt, soak it in water and leave it in the freezer for at least 30 minutes. After 30 minutes take it out, lay it on your back, head or whatever is hottest and just relax. To enhance this tip, have 2-3 rags; that way while you're using one, another is getting ready to be used and re-used.5.
Keep your windows open! You may think all you're doing is letting in hot dry/humid air, but in fact you are keeping the air circulating rather than turning your room into an oven.6.
Have a fan? Then use it; pretty self explanatory.7.
Distract yourself. The more you remind yourself in your head or verbally the more you feel like you're feeling hot. So distract yourself from the temperature, stay positive and things should get better.8.
Eat cold food. This may seem like common sense, but people often eat hot foods during hot weather. If you want to lower your internal temperature then have cold/cool food and drink.
Those are my 8 tips on staying cool in the hot weather, stay cool everyone.
This is almost the same div as in the header, it has an added white line at the top to set it apart from the stuff above - you may want to use it to add a copyright notice, or a short blurb concerning commissions or whatever else you want. I'm now using it to tell you that the cup in the header was from ~Kaotiksymphony-Stock
