As the summer season rapidly approaches, are you ready? There are a lot of things you can do to prepare for summer, personally and for your household. Here are a couple of tips:
Change your air filters in your air conditioning units and clean your fans. As the summer heats up, cleaning these items can help them function better and produce cooler air.
Find some summer friendly recipes! With so much heat, it can be intense to use the oven. Try using the stove top and consider creating some heat free meal choices. Pasta salad, tuna and stovetop recipes can help reduce the amount of heat you produce in your home, hence keeping your home cooler.
Find some fun, self-loving activities! There are cooling face masks and cooling hair conditioners that you can use to stay cool and add nutrients to your hair and skin. Also, Icee's as an adult are always fun!
Use Blackout Curtains! Blackout curtains can help keep the sun out and keep your space cooler. Also, they are pretty cool decorations for your space.
As we rapidly approach the summer, I want to encourage everyone to take time to take care of yourself. Even if it's 15 minutes per day to meditate, sit near water or to reflect on the positive things in your life. Taking care of yourself will help you be there for others!
