Stay cool this summer...

It's a beautiful sunny day in Manchester today but there's a possibility that it won't last that long. After all we know what a Manchester summer isn't going to last long but it does...it's hot and as English men and women we are not creatures used to the warmth staying cool in the heat is important not only for your own comfort but for your health as well, staying cool can save lives and here our handy hints to help you this summer (or let's be real when you're on holiday)

Out of direct sun...
Whether it's bringing an umbrella to the beach or walking around a supermarket with the ac on, it's always wise to break every two hours of sunbathing. Your body can only absorb some much sunlight before it's starts burning so breaking up your time in direct sunlight will make you feel better and improve your tan as well.

Keep it cotton...
Cottons light and airy feel make it the perfect summer fabric, change your bed sheets, your curtains and your clothes to cotton over the summer to feel the cool flow of cotton fabric, it slows down the spreading of body heat and it's loose material can make your sweat disappear.

Loose the electric...
Your TV, your lightbulbs and your charger all emit there own little little heat source and when added together can make the heat of your entire room rise. And as we all know, your laptop can be the same temperature as hell on a Wednesday, the heat from electric sources can be overwhelming. Get a cooling pad for your laptop and try not to use your electronics when they are charging.

Stay calm...
Mediation and relaxing environment can make you feel cooler just as having anxiety and drinking caffeine can get your blood pressure up and thus make you feel warmer. Find a relaxing place (or if that fails then plug in your earphones and listen to whale music) take a nice long drink of ice cold water, or cranberry juice is also shown to have calming qualities and take long breaths and feel the cool glow go over you.
