It’s officially summer and that brings warmer temperatures! No need to stay cooped up inside all day when you’re armed with ways to beat the heat this season. Not sure how to do so? Look no further than our latest blog post. Filled with quick and simple ways to help you stay comfortably cool, all you have to do is choose your favorite(s)!
Refresh with a Mocktail
Nothing is more refreshing than a cool drink. A mocktail is a perfect way to enjoy an icy, flavorful beverage. What’s even better is that you can include fruits and other ingredients that help with joint health like turmeric and berries. A Mint Berry Smash or Turmeric Sparkling Blood Orange Mocktail sounds fabulous on a toasty day.
Take a Dip
Dip more than your toes in at your local pool to cool down this summer. Not only will the water keep you comfortable, but swimming is also a great low-impact workout. Swimming can help strengthen the muscles around your joints, which protects them from pain and injury.
Garden in a Shady Spot
It’s hard to beat a comforting breeze on a warm day in the summer. Take advantage of a mild day by enjoying your garden in a shady spot. Weeding, pruning, and watering your garden beds is a great way to spend an afternoon!
Stay in the AC and Read
On the days when it’s too hot to handle, embrace the AC! With higher than usual temperatures and hear advisories, it’s best to stay inside where you can control the temperature. On days like these, take the time to relax and crack open the book you’ve been wanting to read. Maybe even enjoy an ice cream cone along with it!
