Cool It! – Tips For Staying Comfortable And Healthy For Summer

We all want to enjoy the summertime with all the great activities and warm weather, but what do you do when the heat gets to be too much? Here are some tips that will help you stay cool even through the hottest weather.
Tips to keep you and your home cooler through the hottest months –

For you –
• Always stay well-hydrated – drink lots of water – avoid alcoholic beverages.
• Wear a hat, sunglasses and sunblock when going out in the sun.
• Take your walks in the early morning or late evenings.
• Avoid strenuous tasks during the heat of the day.
• Placing an icepack around your neck can bring your temperature down quickly.
• Buy a plastic child’s pool and enjoy cooling off your feet.
• Avoid large meals – eat salads and smaller cold meals.
• Take a cool shower when the heat becomes too uncomfortable.

For your home –
• Open your windows during the cool hours of the day.
• Placing a fan near a window on the shady side of the house, it is more effective.
• Avoid opening the refrigerator door too often– this can heat up your kitchen.
• Close drapes, curtains, windows, doors and shades before the day becomes too hot.
• Hang clothes on a line instead of using your dryer.
• Avoid using your oven, especially mid-day.
• Close off any unused rooms – will save on air conditioner usage.
If you become disoriented, confused or listless, call 911.
These are the symptoms of heat stroke.

To Your Physical Health, and Happiness, in 2018

Happy Healthy New Year in 2018 from Hearthside Home Care!

First, to your physical health, here are a few suggestions to help put a damper on various inflammation types –

  • Preventing bloating and irritable bowel – eliminate emulsifiers from your diet
  • Alzheimer’s prone – eat up on healthy fats, yes! For your brain health
  • Lowering heart disease risk – eat more nuts
  • Gum disease & prevention- use an aloe vera rinse
  • Reducing breast cancer risk- keep off extra weight, and consume extra Vitamin D
  • Prone to asthma attacks – switch from drinking wines to drinking cocktails
  • Management of arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis – watch out for the wheat gluten in your diet

And now, the big one – meditation every day for 5 to 15 minutes has been found to reduce inflammation anywhere in the body.

And, here’s to your happiness:

  • Practice self-care, frequently.
  • It’s not how much stress we have, but how well we manage stress that really matters
  • Identify your healthful relationships with various people in your life
  • Maintain some close connections. Can be one or two. We don’t necessarily need to have gobs and gobs of connections. Define the meaning of ‘friend’ for ‘You’
