Beat The Heat

Beat The Heat

Summer in Solon is a time of vibrant energy, but it can also bring sweltering temperatures. Don’t worry, though! We’ve got your back with some cool tips to help you beat the heat. So, grab a cold drink and let’s dive in! ☀️

Stay Hydrated – H2O Is Your Best Friend

The sun’s blazing, and you’re out and about. What should be your first line of defense? Water! Proper hydration is crucial to stay cool. Keep a reusable water bottle handy, and sip on it throughout the day. Not only will it keep you refreshed, but it’s also great for your health.

Dress Smart – Light and Loose-Fitting

Wearing the right clothes can make all the difference. Opt for lightweight, loose-fitting, and light-colored clothing. These choices reflect the sun’s rays rather than absorbing them, keeping you cooler. Don’t forget that wide-brimmed hat and a pair of stylish shades for extra protection!

Plan Outdoor Activities Wisely – Early or Late

If you’re planning outdoor activities, consider doing them in the early morning or late evening when the sun is less intense. This way, you can still enjoy Solon’s beauty without feeling like you’re in a sauna.

Enjoy Frozen Treats – Ice Cream Delights

Indulging in ice cream, frozen yogurt, or a refreshing popsicle can be the perfect way to cool down and treat yourself. Solon has some fantastic ice cream parlors; make it a fun family outing!

Seek Shade – Nature’s Air Conditioning

Solon is blessed with beautiful parks and green spaces. Take advantage of them! Find a shady spot under a tree, set up a picnic, or simply take a leisurely stroll in the park. Nature’s air conditioning is unbeatable.

Get Creative with Water Play

If you have kids (or even if you don’t), consider water play activities. It could be as simple as setting up a sprinkler in your yard or visiting a local pool or a Lake McBride beach. Water fights and splash wars are not just for children – they’re for the young at heart!

Check on Neighbors – Community Spirit

In the spirit of the Solon Area Community Foundation, let’s not forget to check on our neighbors, especially the elderly and those without air conditioning. A small act of kindness can make a big difference during a heatwave.

Stay Informed – Be Weather-Wise

Lastly, keep an eye on the weather forecast. Knowing when a heatwave is coming allows you to plan accordingly and take necessary precautions.

So, there you have it, your guide to beating the Solon heat! Enjoy the sunny season while staying cool and safe. Remember, the Solon Area Community Foundation is here to support our wonderful community in every way possible. Stay cool, Solon! ☀️✨
