Coolify your home.
Think of your home as your fortress for surviving the aHOTcalypse. That's when it seems like your world is ending because it's so darn hot. Soup up your place with attic fans, weather strip doors, air conditioners, or thick drapes to repel heat.
Heatstroke is no joke.
It's actually the cause of the most disaster-related deaths each year. But never fear, we can learn the warning signs, such as fever of 104 degrees or more, fainting, rapid breathing, and nausea. If you or someone you know is showing these signs, get out of the sun, drink lots of water, and cool down with some ice packs.
Water you waiting for?
We humans are made up of mostly water, so it makes sense that we need to continually replenish that water when we sweat our faces off. When a heat wave hits, make sure you hit the store for liquids and salty snacks.
Be cool, literally.
If you haven't figured out how to turn your home into an ice rink, there's no shame in hunting for cool places like malls or restaurants to ride out the heat wave (just be sure to wear your mask these days!). Or make some actual waves at a lake or the ocean.
We know you want to work out every day to get in peak form, but on days that are unforgivingly hot, don't give it all you got. Skip exercising in the sun that day, and say okay to letting your body heal with a cold shake.
