    Stay Cool Without A Pool

    We're currently in the midst of the hottest month of the entire year, even by summer standards. August is generally known for being blistering with its heat index, and some people simply don't know how to handle such extreme weather without any way to cool off throughout the day. Some people are lucky enough to have their own pool - whether it be in ground or above-ground - and can take a dip whenever they feel a bit of sweat coming on. Others, unfortunately, don't have that luxury and need to get really creative when it comes to remaining chill.

    Air Conditioning

    Air conditioning is one of the most obvious ways to keep your home cool and relax during the extreme heat of summer. A single well-placed air conditioner is capable of cooling an entire home if positioned in the correct window. Depending on how powerful the air conditioner is, you could have a completely cooled room or entire house within the hour, which is more than can be said of some other options. We're looking at you ice pops!

    Ice Pops

    Taking some time to make homemade ice pops, especially with the kids, can be a rewarding experience for all involved. The only downside here is the wait time after putting the pops in the freezer. It takes time for them to be ready, so during the wait you can sit in front of the air conditioner and relax.

    Ice pops have the unique ability to come in a variety of flavors. With access to a blender, you can easily make a mixed berry flavor, strawberry-banana, or perhaps even a chocolate pudding ice pop for those with more of a sweet tooth. Be sure to leave some small chunks of fruit for a bit of extra texture and flavor, though.

    Cold One

    For the adults, popping up an ice cold beer is a wonderful way to both relax and refresh yourself on a warm day. Pulling your favorite brand from a cooler filled with ice is one of life's small pleasures.

    For kids, however, a cup of juice, water, iced tea, or lemonade with a couple cubes of ice is perfect for cooling the body down and keeping them playing for long periods of time. By the time night rolls around, most kids will fall asleep where they stand, allowing for some much-needed peace and quiet.

    Lego Boats

    For those with children in the house, filling the bathtub with cool water and a couple of toys can be a wonderful experience for the kids. Building boats made entirely of legos, which won't be damaged in the water, can make for hours of fun for everyone in the family.

    Cool Shower

    As a last resort, hopping into a cool shower can drastically change your outlook on the current heat situation. Cold water may feel like a bit too much at first, but sitting under the cool spray from the shower head and remove the heat from your body and leave you feeling awake and refreshed. Heat has the tendency to make most of us tired, unfortunately.

    Despite the sometimes overwhelming heat, there are plenty of options to remain cool in the hot summer months. Some are more elaborate than others, of course, but they are still available to most families today.
