Local weather jealousy is something. Minnesotans envy Floridians any time there are three feet of snow on the ground, but Floridians move their attention north throughout those incredibly sizzling hot summer months.

If you recently moved to Killeen, the heat and humidity might possibly smack you like a wall, specifically within the summertime. Any jealousy you could be sensing simply leaves as the moving company unloads the last items out of the moving van in Killeen. Fortunately, you can adapt to a hotter climate. Unfortunately, it can take a little extra time, so you might have to hang in there and deal with it a little.

Here are some things you can do to adjust to the heat and humidity after moving to Killeen:

1. Adjust your schedule. Steer clear of going out in the full heat through the day and strive to coordinate tasks for the morning or perhaps evening. In the event you generally exercise in the afternoon, adjust it to early morning hours. Eating a bit later will allow you to cope with the consequences of the humidity on your appetite. In case your schedule allows, there is a good reason why individuals in take siestas.

2. Fight the urge to crank the A/C totally up to freezing levels. It'll only decrease your adaptation, not to mention running up your power bills. You may also end up becoming too cold after you've been outdoors. Usually, it is best to set the A/C to about ten degrees below the exterior temperature, no more. In addition, do not operate the A/C with the windows open, you will simply squander energy.

3. In the event that you have ability to access a pool or maybe the ocean, utilize it. Swimming will cool you off, if you stay in for at least a quarter-hour. Do not spoil it by laying in the sun, however. Furthermore, simply wading in the ocean could cool you down.

4. Indeed, you should drink more, especially if you are older. Also, ensure you take in sufficient salt (except if you happen to be explicitly on a lower sodium diet). Perspiring will make you eliminate salt, and that could make you unwell. Excessive concentrations of humidity may cause you to feel less thirsty, at the same time making sweating ineffective. You additionally may wish to lower your alcohol consumption until you are adjusted, and in case you do drink, go for a beer or a tropical cocktail above shots.

5. Put on a hat. Obtain a fine, wide-brimmed sun hat (or even more than one) and use them. Keeping the direct sun off the head will make you feel significantly cooler. Also, counterintuitively, light long-sleeved clothes will regularly help keep you cooler than a tank top and shorts. Make certain whatever you decide to wear is loose fitting and light colored. Avoid performing exercises in snug spandex.

6. Ensure that you keep eating regularly, even when you are not famished. High heat as well as humidity can lead to loss of appetite, and not eating enough will add to any lethargy you without a doubt feel.

7. Modify the way you make meals. Keep the extended cooking soups as well as roasts for wintertime and prepare foods that bake for a small amount of time and use the oven as little as possible. Consume extra salads along with fruits and veggies. Keep frozen goodies or, in the event that calories are a issue, popsicles handy. You can even freeze blueberries or cherries and then suck on them. Should you be feeling committed, buy an ice cream maker and test out various flavors.

8. You shouldn't feel bad about being lazy on those prolonged summer time days. Often it really is just too scorching to move a lot.

Understand that it could require several weeks to adjust. Your initial summer may be unpleasant, however you may use the same mental tactics which got you through prolonged winter seasons up north. When summer comes around once more you'll find you contend with it much better and you may well begin to like it.
