Surviving the Heat

How to beat the heat!!!!  Here in the midwest, we have had the yin and yang of weather this year!  Not too long ago we had the polar vortex to follow with some significant heat!  So how do you and your family members stay safe in the heat!

Here are some tips to keep you cool.  

  • Stay indoors, If you have to go outside, plan your day. Make those outdoor plans early or late in the day
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing
  • Eat fresh fruit and veggies!  Limit warming up your kitchen.
  • Thirsty!  This is probably the hardest one during these warm months.  A tip I always talk with patients is to freeze green grapes.  Take a few out at a time and suck on them for a refreshing summer treat!

I look forward to hearing some of your tips!
