Drink Plenty of Water

If you are thirsty, you may already be dehydrated! Keep a reusable water bottle with you, and drink water before, during, and after spending time outside.

Find Shade When You Can

I have heard that depending on the weather, the shade can make around a 20-degree difference in temperature.

Remember to Take Breaks

Give yourself plenty of opportunities to drink water, hang out in the shade, or better yet, go indoors with air conditioning.

Wear Clothing That Help Cool You Down

  • Cotton
  • Linen
  • Clothing that slightly hangs off your body.
  • Clothing that is the lightest weight.
  • Clothing that is lighter in color
  • Clothing that has vents
  • Hat with a brim

*I still recommend you keep a light jacket in the car for when you go inside. Some office buildings, movie theaters, etc. really like to keep the AC super cold!

Eat Food That is Colder

Eat more fresh fruit, vegetables, and leafy greens to keep you cool!

Best Activities to Do During Humid Days

Kelly Raulston

“Reliable and Ready” REALTOR® since 2016. I was born in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, but was raised in Texas since 1997. When I found out we were moving to Plano, Texas, I remember looking forward to riding a horse to school and a brand-new pair of cowboy boots! Growing up in Plano prepared me to be competitive, quick, and to have a strong work ethic. I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. Axe’em Jacks! That is where my love for East Texas began. The nature, warm smiles, football games, and community values can't be beat! I graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I was a middle school math teacher in Tyler, Texas. I met my husband, Travis, in Sunday school, and we have been married since September 2016. I love being a REALTOR® in East Texas! Relationships are genuine, the area is beautiful, and the market is rockin’! I am an involved REALTOR® to better the community. Some of the organizations I am involved with are: The Professional Development Committee, Texas Real Estate Political Action Committee, and Tyler Educational Networking Group. Some awards I have won were “The Hustle Award” in 2016, and “Rookie of the Year” in 2017. When I am not working with my clients, I like to spend quality time with my friends and family doing the following: running, target practice, read and participate in book club, and playing with my dachshund Greta.
