Real Ways to Beat the Summer Heat

The weather is getting spicy down here in Austin, but we’re not letting the heat slow us down. Here’s how we’re keeping cool this summer at Thunderbird. 

Hydrate


The #1 way to stay hydrated this summer? Drink tons of water! It’s extra important to drink water during the sweaty summer months because the sun can intensify dehydration. Flavored sparkling water like Waterloo is a great way to add excitement to your hydration. In addition to drinking water, you can stay hydrated by eating water dense fruits and vegetables like watermelon, strawberries, grapefruit, lettuce, peppers, and zucchini. 


Pro tip: infuse cucumbers or oranges into your water to up the flavor!


Apply Sunscreen 


Whether you’re talking a dip in the pool or just catching some rays, don’t forget to apply and reapply sunscreen! We don’t recommend just any sunscreen, however. Most conventional sunscreens are filled with toxic chemicals that are harmful to both our bodies and the Earth. We never leave the office without making sure our natural and mineral based Thinksport sunscreen is in our bag!


Go For a Swim!


In the summer, when the Thunderbird team isn't at the office you can almost always find us at Barton Springs taking a dip in its cold, aquifer fed water. Where is your favorite swim spot? Let us know in the comments!


Eat Real Food 


It’s no secret that fruits and vegetables contain healthy nutrients that the body needs. The heat shouldn’t cause you to sacrifice your health. Thunderbird Real Food Bars makes it easy to eat healthy on the go. At Thunderbird HQ, we are loving the Cashew Fig Carrot bar right now. Check out all of our flavors here!
