Residents are flocking to beaches and finding ways to keep cool while the summer sun beats down relentlessly upon them.

4 Tips to Beat the Heat this Summer
Go to the Beach
Orange County is heating up, and it’s only going to get warmer as the summer goes on. But that doesn’t mean that residents stop enjoying the beautiful Orange County beaches. In fact, beaches are packed during the summer with loads of people trying to get out of the house. But in order to feel like you’re beating the heat, it’s imperative you bring everything from sunscreen, hats and umbrellas to an Eazy Up or shade structure to shield you from the sun. Spend some time in the cool ocean and enjoy the ocean breeze while you join hundreds of other Orange County residents that have the same notions about beating the heat.
When the weather is hot, your body needs extra help to function properly. When you’re not hydrated properly you’re more susceptible to fatigue and dehydration, neither of which are very fun things to deal with, especially during the summer. The hotter the weather is, the more water and liquids you should be drinking. Drink a glass of water when you wake up in the morning to start your day, don’t forget to bring your water bottle with you when you leave the house and choose aqueous based drinks instead of soda or sugary drinks to help keep yourself cool during the summer heat.
Staying hydrated and refreshed doesn’t have to just consist of water. You can beat the heat by eating foods that don’t require being cooked. Seasonal aqueous based foodsare cantaloupes, honeydew melons, watermelon and cucumbers require no cooking and they can easily be sliced and served. These foods are not only refreshing and low maintenance, but they’re full of water so they contribute to your hydration as well.
Exercise Earlier or Later
Just because it’s hot doesn’t mean that you get to stop exercising. In fact, for most Orange County residents, it just means that they alter their exercise schedule. The jogging paths are more crowded earlier in the morning and later in the evening as people continue to exercise while avoiding the harsh sun. Exercise is important, and summer is the most active time of year in Orange County. Don’t let the heat deter you from staying healthy. Just get up a little earlier and squeeze in your morning walk before it’s too hot.
