Start your day right by having a good night's sleep

Tossing and turning at night due to the humid and warm temperature? It takes five times longer to fall asleep in a high-temperature environment, and your average sleep time can be reduced by nearly 30%.

Now, lie down and cool off.

        Cool as a cucumber throughout the day

        When the sun is at it's strongest, is when we are hottest. Here are some tips to keep you and your home cool in the day.  

        Keep out the heat and light

        Curtains and blinds can help your home stay at a comfortable temperature. Thicker curtains keep out the sun’s hot rays and different layers in your windows also help insulate your home.

        So do cellular blinds, which have a honeycomb structure that traps air, a natural insulator, inside them.

        Different light management options for curtains and blinds include light filtering, privacy, room darkening and block-out curtains. For a better cooling effect, choose room darkening or block-out blinds which will prevent the sunlight from getting in.

          Get hydrated with H2O and ice cool treats

          Did you know that increased water intake on hot days can help prevent dehydration and heatstrokes? With more sweating and loss of water from the body, an increase in water intake can help to replace fluids and also cool down your body temperature.

                  Did you know that our pets are not able to cool themselves down as efficiently as us because they are not able to sweat? Here are some ways to help them beat the heat!

                  Is the hot weather making your furry best friend uncomfortable?   

                  Cool them down with these tips and ideas:

                  1. Place a cooling mat under their sleeping mat or area so they can relax and rest well.
                  2. Make cooling snacks with a popsicle maker to encourage hydration, or add ice cubes in their drinking bowl for a cool tasty drink.
                  3. Use a spray bottle to spray cool water on their fur to bring down their body temperature.
                  4. Fill a baby bath tub with cool water just enough to let them stand in it with their feet emerged, this helps them regulate their body temperature. 
                  5. Dampen a hand towel, chill it in the freezer and place it around their neck or groin area for a quick cooling effect. 
                  6. Give them a quick  shower with cool (not cold) water, to effectively lower the temperature quickly.
