How to Stay Cool in the Summer

How to Stay Cool in the Summer

I live in a very hot part of California. I’m so close to the desert that staying cool is a full on job. It’s kind of ridiculous. If you’re anything like me, the heat makes me super lethargic. I honestly love summer but the heat just tires me out! So thanks with the help of Outshine, I am bringing you different ways to stay cool in the summer!

Take Advantage of Late Afternoons

It’s going to be hot all summer so it’s all about playing smarter, not hotter. (I hope y’all see what I did there) If you want to do more activities, avoid the middle of the day and push things to the late afternoon. Thankfully the days in summer seem a lot longer so you still have time to get things done. Plus, you get breezes and you get to see the beautiful sunset as it goes down. Win-win, I think.

Snack Brighter with Outshine

I’m all about yummy treats and Outshine is the perfect healthy alternative. It won’t make you feel guilty and they’re so refreshing. They have tons of fruity flavors available (my favorite is coconut) and they also have yogurt bars if that’s what you’re into! They’re perfect and you’ll probably keep eating them on a warm day.

Make It A Day In

I know that summer is about going out and having fun, but having a day in is just as good! Stay in and have a movie one with your loved ones. There’s tons of classic summer movies that you can watch.

Think About Your Clothes

I wear black year round, but that’s not the point of this. Maybe I’m getting older but I’ve gotten to the point that I prefer wearing truly cooling clothing instead of trying to look cute. Sometimes you have to sacrifice looks so you don’t melt in the sun.
