It’s been a long winter. And now that spring is here, we are finally getting the warmer weather that signals that summer is just around the corner. And while PulseAir shares everyone’s excitement for warmer weather, we want to make sure everyone has a cool, safe summer. With that in mind, we offer these tips to make sure you don’t overheat this summer.
Warmer weather means you’re going to sweat more, so you need to drink more water during the summer to avoid becoming dehydrated. So how much water should you be drinking? Most experts suggest you should be drinking 64 oz of water per day. If you want some extra help, there are plenty of apps you can download that help you track how much water you’re drinking.
Embrace Sunrises and Sunsets
Whether you’re an avid outdoor runner or you just like to take your dog for a walk every day, the summer heat may require you to adjust your schedule to beat the heat. Early morning and later afternoon around sunset are cooler times of the day. So, if you have an outdoor routine, it’s best to do them around sunrise or sunset to avoid the hottest hours of the day.
Choose Clothing Carefully
Summer means sweater weather is over and it’s time to embrace short sleeves. We recommend using breathable fabrics like cotton, rather than synthetic fabrics that may be warmer. It’s also important to wear lighter colors, which won’t attract the sun’s heat as much as darker colors. Finally, since this summer will still be impacted by COVID-19, make sure you have the right mask. Cloth masks improve airflow without sacrificing safety.
PulseAir is ready for the warm weather, just like all of you. But make sure you use these tips to have a safe, fun summer. If you have any questions, please contact us.
