hi everyone it's been a while hope everyone is doing well!
So it's been a really hot day (in my opinion lol) and I'm in England so goodness knows how some of you guys must feel! heat is a trigger for me for some reason when it's hot I feel like I need to poop lol how weird is that?
but it makes me feel pretty nauseous too so I was thinking has anyone got any tips on keeping cool in hot weather?

for me:
cold water on the wrists
cold water cloth on my forehead
a spritz bottle with cold water to spray
cool showers

the main reason I'm asking is I'm going camping in August and I just want to stay nice and cool (on more than one level lol) so hopefully if I can stay cool in temp I'll stay nice and chilled in mind

Probably the most important thing, for me, is to stay hydrated. Even in not-so-hot weather, nausea is my very first sign that I'm not drinking enough.

The spray bottle for spritzing is my other coping mechanism. Just remember your sunscreen - for some reason, spraying water on outdoors = terrible sunburns for me, and that's definitely NOT a way to keep cool, LOL!
