Here are a few tips to beat the summer heat and stay cool
1. Choose cottons and linens
Have lots of cottons and linens in your wardrobe that can keep you cool and soak the sweat from your body. Avoid synthetic clothes. Also try to pick light colors. Also wear loose fitting clothes if possible for adding comfort.
2. Stay hydrated
Drink lots of water and fresh juices as they make up for the loss of water and potassium from the body due to sweat. Also carry water with you.
3. Avoid oily and processed food
During our summers, digestion becomes a little weak, it is advisable to avoid oily and processed food and choose fresh, light and high-fiber items which are easily digestible.
4. Take care of your skin
Whenever going outdoors, use a good sunscreen with a high SPF to keep your skin from getting harmed by the harsh rays of the sun. Apply sunscreen at least 15 – 20 minutes before moving outdoors. Also, if possible, during peak heat hours try to stay indoors.
5. Have a workout routine
Do not stop exercising because of a hot summer, keep yourself active and if you want to exercise outdoors, do it early in the morning or late in the evening.
6. Eat fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables
Summers bring with them a variety of fruits and vegetables like mangoes, watermelon, lychee, lime, cucumber and many more. They are healthy with lots of water and are also rich in vitamins and minerals. Add them to your daily diet to stay healthy.
7. Plan a vacation
Children have holidays during some part of the summer, plan a family vacation to a cooler place to beat the heat and have some family time. Even if you are single or do not have kids, having fun time with your loved ones is not a bad idea.
For nearly two hours Thursday night, Baltimore County and developer Caves Valley Partners representatives listened to community concerns and answered questions about parking, pedestrian access and the design of a proposed development at York Road and Bosley Avenue in Towson.
Caves Valley lawyer David Karceski, of Venable LLC, announced that the land, previously owned by the county, transferred to Caves Valley Thursday.
The developer presented two plans for Towson Station: One for a fast-food restaurant with a drive-thru and one for a drive-in bank.

Each plan also includes space for retailers, some already set to move in, according to a pamphlet by retail brokerage firm H&R Retail. The development, if approved, would include a Mission BBQ restaurant and a Men’s Wearhouse retail clothier.
The meeting, at the Sheppard Pratt Conference Center in Towson, was the next step in the development process for the project, originally proposed as Towson Gateway.
According to the Towson Flyer, Mission BBQ and MOD Pizza are coming to Towson Station, the new development planned at York Road and Bosley Avenue, according to a leasing brochure from H&R Retail. The site is also slated to be home to a fast-food drive-through restaurant, which is likely to be Chick-fil-A. [Update: A representative for the developer now says the northeast corner might house a bank instead of a fast-food restaurant but nothing has been finalized yet.]
The developer of the site, Caves Valley Partners, is hosting a community-input meeting on Thursday, June 28, at 7PM for the project, formerly home to the Towson fire station.
We secured a permit to start construction on the old Towson Police Station. Phase one of the project is to remove most of the interior. Following the demolition of the old interior, phase two will be the construction of the units. Stay tuned for more updates on this unique residential rental opportunity.
