Tips / Safety

The soothing sound of the ocean, having your toes in the warm sand and a good book in your hand, the beach is the perfect place to relax and unwind from your day-to-day life. Not much can ruin a day at the beach but if it’s a very hot day, it may not be that relaxing. Follow these tips to stay cool on the beach even when it’s too hot.

 

Don’t lay or sit directly in the sun for too long, as you could become dehydrated from sweating or get a bad sunburn. Set up a tent or an umbrella to help provide well-needed shade; sitting in the shade will give you a break from the hot sun and make it seem a little cooler.

 

Whether it’s an extremely hot day or just a normal day at the beach, staying hydrated is important. Bring plenty of water to get you through the day; having the water in a cooler will keep it cold, so you don’t have to drink water that’s been sitting in the sun. Drinking cold water and staying hydrated will help you cool down a little bit. Pack some cold fruit in the cooler as a little refresher.

 

Even if you don’t normally go in the ocean, consider taking a dip every once in a while. The cool ocean will cool down your body and make the heat a little more bearable.

 

If none of these things help and the heat is still getting to you, pack up early and head home. Try again the next day; you don’t want to risk a bad sunburn or heat exhaustion.

Hotel Chicago West Loop Becomes City’s First All Street Mural Hotel

Hotel Chicago West Loop is Chicago’s first hotel to bring street art inside, and to every guestroom. The dual-purpose property doubles as an art gallery, and launched its “Annex Murals” exhibit in 2018 with 15 hand-painted rooms boasting the work of some of Chicago’s most celebrated urban artists, including Asend, JC Rivera and Eloo. Today, all 116 rooms at the hotel have been painted with street murals, becoming some of the most distinctive lodging spaces in the city.

Seek Wellbeing in Greece

The Greek tradition of health and wellness runs deep; travelers can find a multitude of therapies to meet their wellbeing needs, from healing spas, herbal therapies, hypnotherapy, massages and more. In Greece, the approach to wellness focuses on the “whole” and the ways in which the mind, body and soul interact. A state of balance is achieved through a good relationship between the emotional and natural state, which can be found throughout Greece at its more than 800 medicinal spas.
