[Seniors] 3 Steps to BEAT Sweltering Summer Heat
Dear Turapür Today Reader,
The dog days of summer are back with a vengeance.
Dozens of states have already been battling intense, sweltering summer temperatures… causing hundreds of deaths from heat-related illnesses.
And we haven’t even hit August yet!
But even if you live somewhere that hasn’t yet experienced a heat wave, you should still take precautions to keep yourself safe (and cool).
And even though you can’t control the temperature outside, there’s plenty you can do to keep your body cool, hydrated, and safe from heat-related illnesses like heat exhaustion and heatstroke that could land you in the hospital.
Here are three, practical steps to keep you and your loved ones safe and cool.
Step one: Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
I know this sounds like common sense, but the best way to keep yourself safe during extreme temperatures is to drink plenty of water.
But this can be problematic for older adults, as your sense of thirst tends to decline as you age. This means you may not ‘feel’ thirsty, but your body needs water. And when this happens, it can lead to dehydration, which can lead to heat-related illnesses.
When it’s hot outside, drinking a tall glass of water every hour will ensure your body is adequately hydrated (even if you don’t feel thirsty).
Step two: Stay inside (or find shade)
During intense heat, staying indoors (especially with air conditioning) is a great way to stay safe. This ensure your body’s core temperature stays nice and cool.
If your home doesn’t have air conditioning, you can also sit in a room with a ceiling fan, or even a box fan.
If you do need to go outside, only do so early in the morning or close to sunset when temperatures are at their lowest.

This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
Are we literally FEEDING cancer cells by putting this one food on our dinner plates?
This is important. THIS one food could be growing cancer cells.
And here’s where it gets interesting… as soon as we STOP eating it, the opposite happens: cancer cells STARVE to death — and die out by the thousands.
Skeptical? See the evidence here.
And if you do go outside, it’s best to stick to areas with shade… like under a tree, or even a patio umbrella.
Step three: Ditch the layers
This goes without saying, but be sure not to wear extra layers of clothes on hot days.
Consider wearing lightweight clothes like short-sleeve shirts or shorts… and avoid clothes that are black as darker clothes tend to absorb heat.
If you’re worried about getting too much sun, wearing a large-brimmed hat is a great way to stay cool without exposing your skin to UV rays.
