The heat is on this week with temperatures soaring to an average of 32 °C/ 91 °F not including the humidity. That being said, everyone is looking to find ways to stay cool. I recommend water for hydration, and if you have to be outside working, to take it easy and frequent breaks if possible. I personally enjoy being indoors in the air conditioning. If I have anything I need to do outdoors, it is done early morning or evening when it is cooler.
One way that people use to stay cool is to wear shorts, t-shirts and even by wearing the flip-flops. Here is a link from the Huffington Post that shows some reasons that flip-flops are not the best choice for shoes even though they help people stay cool.
If you don’t follow the link to the article, here is the pertinent information:
“This summer staple might be a real health flop. Aside from the obvious lack of protection (meaning you’re more vulnerable to dropped objects, stubbed toes and the like), your favorite pair could be seriously damaging your feet. “The feet are the foundation of your whole body. This is the base of the skeleton,” says Jackie Sutera, a podiatrist in New York City. “It’s a domino effect… the rest of your joints and bones have to compensate.” Like anything else, moderation is key: Slipping flip flops on by the pool or for a short jaunt likely won’t cause any harm — the problems arise when your thongs become your go-to summer shoes. Sutera, along with Cary Zinkin, a podiatrist in Deerfield Beach Fla., and a spokesperson for the American Podiatric Medical Association, break down exactly what’s happening to your foot when you slide into a pair”.
