So, gather your loved ones, pack your towels, and join us as we embrace the final lap of summer at Decatur’s pools.

Beat the Heat: Stay Cool and Hydrated this Summer!

Did you catch the Today show featuring Glenlake Pool? Atlanta’s very own Blayne Alexander reported on the nationwide heat wave. As temperatures rise, it’s important to find ways to keep cool and stay safe. One great option is to visit our City’s pools, which are open every day until August 1 and then on weekends through Labor Day. Dive in and beat the heat!

In addition to pool time, here are some handy tips to help you stay cool during these scorching days. First, consider adjusting your outdoor exercise routine to take advantage of cooler times, such as early morning or late evening. If you can’t change the timing, try scaling down the intensity by reducing the duration, opting for a brisk walk instead of a run, or simply lowering your exertion level.

Choosing the right clothing can also make a big difference. Opt for loose-fitting garments, preferably in light colors, and opt for breathable fabrics like cotton, which can keep you cooler compared to synthetic materials.Don’t forget to hydrate! Combat dehydration by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Avoid caffeine and alcohol as they can contribute to dehydration. Instead, savor lighter summer fare like cold fruits, low-fat dairy products, and frequent small meals to keep your body well-nourished without generating excess heat. Plus, you’ll enjoy the added benefit of not having to cook next to a hot stove!

For a refreshing burst of coolness, keep a spray bottle filled with chilled water in the refrigerator. Use it to mist your face after spending time outdoors, providing an instant and invigorating cooldown.When the heat becomes unbearable, it’s crucial to seek shelter indoors whenever possible. Avoid activities in direct sunlight or on hot asphalt surfaces. Remember to pay special attention to the most vulnerable members of our community, including the elderly, infants, and those with chronic illnesses, who are more susceptible to heat-related illnesses and dehydration. And don’t forget about our furry friends! Pets also need protection from dehydration and heat-related illnesses.

As the summer heat persists, let’s make smart choices to stay cool, hydrated, and healthy. Join us in enjoying all that summer has to offer, while keeping safety a top priority. Stay cool and beat the heat!
