Winter now seems like a distant memory as we start to move into the spring and summer months. A chance to embrace those spring fashion trends, enjoy a glass of wine in the summer breeze and just embrace the outdoors a little more. However, as the temperature starts to rise, so can our tempers and irritations. We can start to feel agitated by the heat our mood can begin to change. So I thought I would share with you some of the ways that you can keep your cool over the next few months.
Make sure that air conditioning is working
One of the first things to do would be to ensure that the air conditioning is working in your home. This is one of the sure fire ways to keep your home cool and while you won’t want it on everyday because of the spiralling costs, you will want it to work on those days you need it the most. This is when a Heating and Cooling specialist could help and ensure that the system is working as it should be.
Take advantage of the morning and evening breeze
The beast time of the day to cool your home naturally without the need for air conditioning is going to be first thing in the morning and last thing at night. This is when the sun has set or before it rises, and the breeze can be very welcome. Open up all the windows in your home and allow the air to circulate. This will freshen up your home ready for the day. Once done keep certain rooms with curtains closed to keep the temperature low.
Keep a good stock of icy treats
The only way you are going to get through the summer months is to have a few icy treats on hand to help keep you cool and hydrated. Sure having water is always going to help, but it is also nice to have a treat. You could even create your own fruit juice combinations.
Embrace a spring wardrobe with lighter materials
Spring and summer is definitely on the horizon so it might be the ideal time to start thinking about the clothes you have and what you might want to wear moving forward. Consider materials that are cooler, such as a cotton or linens, and try and avoid anything that is too tight fitting. The light and airy feel of the material can help to keep your body temperature low.
Be outside as often as possible
Finally, getting outside as often as possible is always going to make you feel better. The vitamin D is really good for your body and also mentally being outside can really help your mindset. Your mind can be affected by the sun believe it or not, so it might be the ideal time to not feel confined to your space and your home and feel the great outdoors.
I hope that these tips help you to keep your home cool this spring and summer! Of course, when all else fails, just get naked! 🙂
