Staying Cool in the Summer Heats

Popularity 1Viewed 2031 times 2014-5-30 10:16 |System category:News| summer, stay cool, drink water

During these scorching hot summer days, I think back when I cursed at Winter's cruelty.  Those below zero temperature and freezing chills that left me unable to move because of the thickness of the jackets and coverings that engulf me.   The fevers and colds I had to suffer under.  Now I long for the bleak whiteness embrace.

Is this the beauty of having four seasons?  Each season serves to make one appreciate the other season. 

Studies indicate people become more hot-tempered, and easily angered during extreme weathers.  More so during these summer heats.   Normal recommendation is 8 glasses of water.  These days I go for 14-16 glasses.  One habit I've picked up is to bring a 1 to 1.5 Liter bottle wherever I go.  

And whenever it is empty, I find a way to refill it right away even when I am not yet thirsty.  Since the bigger bottle is heavier to carry around,  I'll be encouraged to drink more to lessen the weight I have to carry around.  Thus making me drink more.

Please stay cool.

    It took me sometime to gather the courage to dive at my first cliff.  just as much as it took me some time to "commit" to a serious relationship.  Malerwei, the analogy I tried to make is the ability to "take the dive of no return" is just like getting into a serious relationship i.e. marriage.  For non-experts i.e. first-time divers, one does not know how beautiful or graceful the whole episode will be.  But the trust that all will work out is the key.  Im not married yet, so I guess we'll have to see if my theory stands once I do hehe.  

    Appreciate the comments all!
