2. Withstand the enticement to crank the A/C entirely up to freezing levels. It'll only slow your adaptation, in addition to running up your utility bills.

In addition, you might want to reduce your alcohol consumption until you are adapted, and in case you do drink, go for a beer or a tropical beverage above shots.

5. Don a hat. Obtain a superb, wide-brimmed sun hat (or even more than only one) and make use of them. Keeping the direct sun's rays away the head can make you feel substantially cooler.

7. Adjust how you cook. Save the long cooking stews along with roasts for wintertime and make recipes that bake for a limited time and employ the stove as little as possible. Consume more salads in addition to fruits. Keep frozen goodies or, in the event that calories are a concern, popsicles on hand. You can even freeze blueberries and other berries or cherries and then suck on them. Should you be feeling committed, invest in an ice cream maker and test out several flavors.

8. Don't feel bad about being lazy on those prolonged summer days. Sometimes it is indeed way too warm to move much.

Take into account that it will require a little while to adjust. The first summer may be difficult, nevertheless you can make use of similar mental approaches that got you through lengthy winter months up north. When the summer months comes around once again you'll find you contend with it much better and you might well start to prefer it.
