With temperatures soaring and no respite in sight, this summer looks set to be one of the hottest we’ve had in the last few years. Luckily for you, there’s a wealth of information available on the internet to make sure you stay protected against the heat. The bad news is that it’s all over the place and can be difficult to put all that information together. Not to worry, however, because we have your back with our handy summer checklist. Now you can access all the information you need in one place.

If you want to make it through the summer without melting into a puddle, here’s what you have to do:

Stay hydrated. Obviously.

Wear appropriate clothing. And no, we don’t mean wear less.

Do your best to stay cool as a cucumber in bed. Forget about snuggling.

Prepare your home to be able to handle the heat. It’s a little bit of work for a lot of rewards.

Get yourself an AC or air cooler. It’s all about that air flow, baby.

Eat the right kinds of foods to prevent overheating. Bye-bye heavy foods.

Sunscreen lotion is your friend. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

If you’re desperate, consider a new hairstyle. Let the back of your neck breathe.

Take care of yourself if you’re doing anything physical outdoors.

Stay away from the alcohol. It’s a sacrifice that must be made.
