When summer hits, I’m totally an iced tea girl. There is nothing quite as refreshing as a nice cold glass of iced tea. That being said, it doesn’t exactly give me the caffeine jolt I’m often looking for, so even in the dead of summer I still turn to my daily cups of Joe. Let’s be real though. A steaming cuppa coffee isn’t what you’re going to rely on to help cool you down when it’s sweltering out. These are the dog days of summer people and it’s HOT! So, let’s talk about how to stay cool this summer….
When I discovered iced coffee…it was a game changer. I could drink my favorite beverage without overheating. And, thanks to Starbucks, I don’t have to leave the comfort of my own home to do it. I can simply grab one of their iced coffee drinks that come in tasty flavors like coffee + milk and vanilla from the fridge and I’m good to go! You gotta love Starbucks for making things easy for us busy mamas. That reminds me….I need to send the hubs to our local grocery store to grab more. Bwah!
Here are a few more ways I’m staying cool this summer…
- Running through the sprinkler… I know it’s totally old school, but sometimes I just don’t feel like swimming!
- Icing…Ok, so I have a knee injury, but those ice packs feel mighty good. Try pressing one against the back of your neck!
- Staying hydrated…I make sure I drink plenty of water all day long, especially in the summertime, and ice cold sparkling aqua particularly hits the spot!
So, do you have any favorite tips for how to stay cool this summer? Inquiring minds want to know!
