How to Beat the Heat on Independence Day

July 2, 2019


Are you attending an Independence Day celebration this year? If so, chances
are it might be held outside in either your backyard or your friend’s
backyard — which is more than likely in direct sunlight. While it’s
nice to bask in the summer heat, it’s also essential to find ways
to prevent heat exhaustion, dehydration, and other possible ailments.
If you’re not sure where to start, here are some helpful tips to
keep in mind on the big day:

Drink Plenty of Water

One of the most important things you can do is stay hydrated throughout
the day. More times than most are willing to admit, people will load up
on sugary drinks, rather than reaching for water. When this happens, you
won’t be adequately hydrating yourself — which can lead to

To help keep cool, make sure to drink water more often than you typically
would. This will not only help regulate your body temperature, but it
will also keep you feeling great all day long!

Wear Light, Comfortable Clothing

Typically when you attend an event or celebratory function, it seems that
a go-to outfit would be something upscale — but when it’s
a casual barbeque, you might want to rethink that. Especially if the event
is held outdoors, you’ll want to don garb that’s light and
comfortable. This will not only help you stay cool, but it will make your
day much more enjoyable — especially if there are field day-esc
games involved!

Go in the Pool

If you’re attending a party and the host encourages you to bring
a bathing suit, do it! As it’s known, going for a swim will not
only be a great form of exercise, but the water will also do an incredible
job of keeping you cool — even after you get out.

If a pool isn’t present, then don’t be afraid to get a paper
towel, dampen it in some cold water from the sink, and place it on the
back of your neck. This is another “cool” way to help you
beat the heat on the big day, minus the aquatic feature!
