3 Tips For Dealing With Summer Heat

thumbnail

Hey everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

So, I don’t know about where you live, but here, it’s been so hot! You could fry an egg on the pavement, if the pavement wasn’t completely melted, that is.

I’m a ‘winter person’ – I’d much rather be freezing than a tad hot. And winter has always been my prefered season.

When these insanely high temperatures strike, it’s important that you cool yourself and today, I’m going to share with you a few ways how you could keep your cool during these temperatures. Ready? Leggo. ๐Ÿ˜‰

1) Take a towel of a piece of cloth and dip it in water. Put it in the freezer,ย leave it for about 30 – 45 minutes and BOOM! There you have it. Orrrr, take a spray bottle and fill that with cold water. Cool yourself with it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

2) Go swimming! Doesn’t matter if it’s aย pool or a lake or the ocean, go swimming!ย If you don’t have the resources for the previous tip or you’re just lazy and don’t want to leave the house, take a bath or a shower. (or just wash your legs with freezing water)

3) Make some refreshments:

1. Fruit smoothies

– fruit of your choice

– honey or brown sugar

– orange juice (for the base)

– ice

You just add the ingredients into a blender and blend away! Simple. ๐Ÿ˜€

2. Fruit Milkshake/Breakfast Smoothie

– fruit of your choice

– vanilla extract (this is something I like to use a lot, as I find I really like the flavour it gives)

– milk

– sweetenersย of your choice (honey, sugar… whatever you like)

You could stop here and blend it now, but if you’d like a full, breakfast, you could also add:

– yoghurt

– oats (or corn flakes)

– nuts (or granola)

… and blend now. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a great breakfast and, apparently, it’s quite nutritious.

(recipe by: Jamie Oliver. He adds a bit more ingredients, like lime juice, but I usually skip that part. I’ve got to try it, though!)

3. Lemonade… with mint!

This is the ultimate refreshment. And it’s super easy to make!

You’ll need:

– 2 lemons

– fresh mint (10 leaves)

– water (preferably cold)

– ice

You will just squeeze the lemons and make a normal lemonade and then add the mint leaves. (washed) I usually leave it in the fridge for about 10 – 20 minutes, but that’s not an obligation. You can just add your ice and have a nice, refreshing drink.

    Or you could have some iced coffee hehe! That’s what I have been having recently. Especially when there was a heatwave in the UK! Although, then I should have really been having strawberries and cream since it was wimbledon season… I wrote the recipe of my iced coffee onto my blog. Check it out if you want to try a really lovely refreshing drink yourself ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    P.S all the photos you included are making me upset that I am not on holiday somewhere!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
