The dog days of summer are upon us, or at least upon readers in the Northern Hemisphere. To welcome August, I offer you five ways to beat the heat without cranking up your home’s air conditioning.
1. Have a popsicle.
2. Soak your feet in a kiddie pool.
3. Soak your whole self in a pool. Swim up bar and frozen margarita optional.
4. Catch an afternoon matinee at your local movie theater.
5. Find a shady spot and read a Christmas, New Year’s Eve or winter themed book. Thoughts of snow flakes will cool you down.
What are your favorite ways to cool off?
