Check out these creative ways to stay cool when the temperatures soar!

7 Creative Ways to Keep Cool During Hot Summer Days

  1. Cool your pulse points by running cold water or ice cubes over your wrists for a few minutes.
  2. Place a cold cloth on the back of your neck and leave it there for at least 5 minutes.
  3. Eat small meals rather than large ones as digestion raises the body’s core temperature.
  4. Cool off your bed at night by using a freezing bottled water. Use it to cool your ankles and the back of your knees.
  5. Freeze a couple of water bottles (freeze one for Fido, too, and put it in the pet’s bed to keep him cool) and use them to cool down pulse points.
  6. Don’t turn on the oven! Cook outside using the grill, or use your microwave, crock pot, or serve something cold, like a yummy protein-packed salad. Try this one!
  7. Use overhead (ceiling) fans if you have them. For floor fans, place a bowl of ice or a frozen water jug behind the fan. The air will be cool. You may also want to place a fan on the hot side of a room and have the air blow out, basically allowing the fan to pull the heated air out of the room.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
