Local climate envy is a thing. Minnesotans envy Floridians any time there are several feet of snow on the ground, but Floridians rotate their attention north during the incredibly scorching summertime.
For those who just transferred to Colorado Springs, the humidity and heat might whack you like a wall, especially over the summertime. Any envy you may be sensing leaves as the moving company unloads the last boxes out of the moving van in Colorado Springs. Luckily, it is possible to adapt to a warmer climate. Alas, normally it takes a little time, so you may need to hang in there and cope with it a bit.
Here are some things you can do to acclimatize to the heat and humidity after moving to Colorado Springs:
1. Adjust your routine. Stay away from going out in the whole heat of the day and try to plan chores for the morning or perhaps evening. For those who typically jog in the afternoon, change it to early morning hours. Eating a bit later will assist you to deal with the consequences of the humidity on your hunger. In the event your routine will allow, there might be a good reason why people in take siestas.
2. Resist the enticement to crank the A/C all the way up to arctic degrees. It'll only impede your adaptation, along with running up your utility bills. It's also possible to end up feeling too cold after you've been out of doors. Usually, you'll want to set the A/C to about ten degrees lower than the outside temperature, no more. Oh, never operate the A/C when the windows are open, you'll just waste energy.
3. In case you have admission to a swimming pool or the ocean, make use of it. Swimming will probably cool you off, when you stay in for at least fifteen minutes. Never spoil it by tanning, though. Also, merely wading in the ocean may cool you down.
4. Certainly, you'll want to drink a lot more, particularly if you are older. As well, be sure you consume sufficient salt (unless you are clearly on a reduced sodium diet). Sweating forces you to shed salt, which can make you sick. Substantial concentrations of humidity might cause you to feel less dehydrated, at the same time making perspiring unproductive. You also may want to lower your alcohol consumption until you are adjusted, and in case you do imbibe, select a beer or a tropical beverage above shots.
5. Put on a hat. Purchase a fine, wide-brimmed sun hat (or maybe more than only one) and make use of them. Keeping the direct sun's rays from your head will make you feel considerably cooler. Additionally, counterintuitively, lightweight long-sleeved apparel will regularly help keep you cooler than a t-shirt and shorts. Make sure whatever you decide to wear is loose fitting and light colored. Stay away from working out in snug spandex.
6. Ensure that you keep eating routinely, even if you aren't feeling hungry. High heat and humidity can lead to appetite loss, and not consuming plenty will add to any listlessness you without a doubt feel.
7. Adjust how you cook. Keep the prolonged cooking soups along with roasts for winter and prepare foods which bake for a short period of time and employ the oven as little as possible. Take in extra salads along with fruits and veggies. Keep frozen goodies or, if calories are a issue, popsicles handy. You can even freeze berries or cherries and then suck on them. In case you are feeling focused, invest in an ice cream maker and try out unique flavors.
8. Do not feel bad about being lazy on those lengthy summer time days. Often it really is way too scorching to move a lot.
Bear in mind it will require several weeks to adjust. Your initial summer may be miserable, however you can use similar mental tactics that got you through extended winter months up north. When the summer months arrives once again you'll find you deal with it much better and you could well learn to like it.
