Bloggers! Execute These 11 Tips to Beat This Summer

How Bloggers can Beat the Summer with these 11 TipsWeathers are a gift from GOD, the beautiful ones that we often compelled to praise it. The scenery turns to be quite worth-watching in different times of all four weathers.

The weather brings so much entertainment and family times and so many people from around the globe await for different weathers as they get the prolonged vacations to spend the most with the families.

But, weathers are not a fun time for me. Not my friend at all. Actually a certain one out of all four weathers.

But I so hope its not the same case with you. I wish from the heart that all of the weathers bring you more joy and happiness which I wished for myself as well but unfortunately, it is not the case with me … too bad it is not ..

And my bad time starts, continues and remains for four months, just the four months in the whole year which get me down and almost make me unable to do anything.

Sadly those are just two reasons alone caused by extreme weather we hit through May to August, every year when it is the peak time of summer. The summer who spreads its wings like a hell. The heat wave makes us to feel like skin is burning. Walls be like there’s nothing erected to stop the heat and we are living in the open space. The rooms turn asΒ  heated-ovens. It just feels like everything is burning from up to bottom, from in to out.

So it is somewhat the complete portray of summer-y months we bear every year. Night times just don’t cool down a lot. Sweating like just took a shower a minute ago. No relief in sleeping. No perfect sleep time and the sun just arises and starts heating up since 5am.

Even though no relief and nothing else in summer-y months except spotty rains, then we actually feel a bit relaxed by the time it is raining. But such trend continues just for a day or maybe for a few hours.

Okay, so I was telling that two reasons which make me feel so down during summer, who are:

  1. Sneezing and flu
  2. Hot and hellish kinda summer

I have already explained how badly I am allergic to sneezing and flu and what I did and what I recommend to everyone to NOT do when you’re down due to sickness or by any other issues.

Now, here comes the hot and hellish-alike summer.. My goodness it is too hot.. It becomes hellish hot during May to August when the temperature hits as high as to 53c to 54c. Due to this hellish heat, headaches, dehydration and flu/sneezing are common. And during the day time, can’t step into the direct sunlight as everything is burning including the sun over the head.

So, that’s the brief real story of the summer-y months we face. Can’t sleep and can’t rest and thus cannot work with focus as we are distracted to the heat.

Such extreme weather is a killer of my efficiency and productivity. With no proper rest and relief, can’t think straight or do things with good.

How Summer Affects Me Too Much Than Others

As I belong to blogging industry, I have to keep thinking and developing the good content but such extreme weather kills it all for me. It snatches away everything from me. Assume when there’s no relief, one cannot think of even something and cannot make the work done timely and efficiently.

For me, I keep on changing my desk’s place all around the home. Sometimes on rooftop, sometimes in backyard, sometimes in this room, sometimes in that room, sometimes in kitchen, etc. Just keep wandering all around the premises throughout the four months.

Why?

To find some relief from heat, some air and a cooler spot to settle in. And in this summer time, I think I have gotten one already. πŸ™‚

But it takes me so much time for my work-desk to move into the new places every time with having all the power cables, all the work-related things, white-board setup, etc. So, a lot of time is actually wasted to settle into every new place.

But I believe that everything happens for a reason, right? So, in my case, every time I move it works well for me even if for quite a few days to combat with the heat.

The key is to NOT to loose the productivity in any weather and in any circumstances. Those who embrace the failure to keep updating their blogs can’t sustain the winning streak as the weather which gets them down will keep coming every year throughout the life. Just that you have to embrace it and keep doing what you do — blogging.

So, do something like:

  1. Set yourself in an open area as much as possible
    This is essential because rooms with or without windows can get heat up and as night prevails,, the walls start to throw out the stored heat developed during the day time compared to open area with or without just roof as it gets cooler as the night time nears.
  2. Don’t work during peak hours
    Yeah, sure you don’t. Don’t blog at all during extreme heat hours or you’ll be just wanting to soak the sweat other than maintaining focus on blogging.
  3. Make your night time your friend.
    Night time are bit cooler compared to day time. If possible, start your day as evening kicks but don’t tempt to work very late in night with the imagination to take sleep during day as you wouldn’t be able to due to hot day. This advice may vary country-to-country but I hope it would fit for bloggers from Africa and Asia where hot weather is actually too much hot.
  4. Wear breath-able, light-colored and loose-fitting clothing
    Like t-shirt and jeans or trouser or even torso. Don’t wear heavy ones and dark-colored clothes.
  5. Don’t sit in direct sunlight
    That’s extremely recommended. Don’t expose yourself too much in direct sunlight. Instead sit under the shades or install a temporary thick roof over yourself to seize the heat.
  6. Enjoy the natural wind than fans or air-conditioners
    Natural is natural, correct?
  7. Take showers with normal water temperature
    Do it the normal way. Don’t cool it down by pouring ice cubes or anything as it will just make you to bear 2x heat amount right after the shower.
  8. Drink lots of water
    Can’t deny its importance, the best ammunition to fight with dehydration.
  9. Avoid day time activities
    Yes, please don’t do it. Such activities like sporting, walk, exercise, etc. will just shoot your blood pressure and will feel dehydrated and lose the energy.
  10. Take naps
    If very possible, must take it as it refreshes one up to not feel down or burn out due to extended wake hours.
  11. Use common sense
    It is required. When you know its over-heat outside, stay indoors and minimize to stop your outdoor activities.

 

 

Β Call to Action, I love this end!

Alright guys, how are you combating with weather changes? Does it effect on your productivity as well? Does a weather stop you from blogging let it be a winter, a summer, an autumn orΒ  a spring?

Do let me know!

Hi Adeel sir,

I am so sorry to hear that summer affect your health so badly. For me summers are great because that is the only season I get less ill. I am very prone to winters and even a temperature below 30 degrees makes me sick. So summers are the only time I enjoy my health. I guess everyone’s body mechanism works differently that is why summers are good for some and bad for others. Moreover, we all have our favorite wheathers depending on many factors like health, temperature, etc.

Good to know that by switching places you find some relief. Also you might be more productive by changing the environment around you like sometimes in the rooftops or inside the house. I wish I too had a backyard and a rooftop/terrace. But sadly leaving on the third floor of a building didn’t give me any of the two.

Oh those tips are nice. I am sure you are following them too and it is really nice of you to share your tips for combating heat with your fellow bloggers. πŸ™‚ I guess sometimes it gets too hot when we will need fans and ACs. Drinking lots of water was mentioned twice, I think you are trying to emphasize more on it. πŸ˜€

I hardly get out of my place in the summers. Even if I feel the need to go out, I prefer either in the early morning or the evening. πŸ™‚

Answering to your question, Yes wheathers do stop me from being productive as I mentioned its winter season which makes me sick. But each season brings new conditions and must be enjoyed. Actually I have a trick that I use to keep myself mentally stable in the summers Lol… I pretend to think that I am feeling cold and I feel less hot… The more we think that its summers and its too hot the more it affects us I guess… Same is the case with winters too. πŸ™‚

Thank you for sharing this interesting post with us Adeel sir. I am sure many other bloggers too will find your tips implementable. Definitely sharing this with my twitter friends. Have a great week ahead. πŸ™‚

    Hello Rohan,

    That’s so wonderful to read your long but very helpful comment where you detailed about your own condition with summer and winter time.

    I am quite amazed to read that you are good during summer. Actually, it is the wheat corp cutting season in here so it makes too many people go sick and people with breathing or flu allergies, they hit them so badly at the times it just goes out of control.

    Ahhh.. I cannot imagine to live in the building with no terrace, backyard or rooftop. It was okay in Karachi when we used to live there but not here, not at all. The heat often turns in-bearable.

    We most often get hit to 53c-54c during peak times and during these days, we are easily getting hit by 46c-48c and it’s just the start of hellish-alike summer. πŸ™‚

    I do follow them like every other day to setup my work-desk here and there and you know what, my family just gets fed up with me due to it. πŸ™‚ Changing the angles and the places make you feel like refreshed and ultimately productive. And so to changing the wallpaper in the laptop, it can also make you feel good to concentrate on your work. πŸ™‚

    You know what, if you start to feel something you will feel it dearly. So, I love the way you trick to summer. πŸ˜€

    Ahhh.. thanks for pointing it out. It was a typo mistake and I have corrected it already. How come I missed it during re-check? πŸ™‚

    Thank you so much Rohan for this great contribution! Loved all of it! πŸ™‚

    You’re #Rohanlicious!

Adeel, I love summertime here in New England especially after a long snowy winter so I blog less in the summer. I spend more time outdoors enjoying nature. If I had to stay in because of heat, which sometimes does happen here I will be on the computer more. How hot does it get there where you are?
I’ve also found many bloggers especially with children to blog less in the summer months for vacation time. So you may not be missing a whole lot πŸ™‚
Stay cool!

    Hello Lisa,

    Thank you so much for your feedback!

    Now I know why you blog less during summer time. πŸ™‚

    That’s even great that you enjoy the nature a lot. I can understand how coldest it gets to back in States that everything just freezes up.

    Good point on the summer where bloggers do see less, I work with a States-based IT company so yeah, I know what summer brings with it. The holidays and some days in travels and the Disneyland. πŸ™‚

    For me, no way. I cannot go out due to my allergy and the hell-alike weather. We get hit by 53c-54c or 127F-129F. Normal temperature remains between 44c-49c or 111F-120F during summer.

    I hope that you enjoy this summer at best! πŸ™‚

    See you often!

    Hello Tonmoy,

    Oh, I got one more person to my side who just don’t like summers. πŸ˜€

    For most school-goers, summers are actually the best time. But for work-goers, it is not the case because of the heat and sweating and many more things which result into not producing the focus on the work. I know a few people working outdoors and this heat is just killing them but they are forced to complete their work on time.

    I don’t like the summers for myself but I love it on the other side because I happen to meet with my sister and nieces. πŸ™‚

    Just concentrate much on the studies, my prayers with you. InshALLAH you will do good! And we see you soon with your own name. πŸ™‚

    Thanks again for the comment, bro!

Well we always need to take naps in the middle of the work so that we could focus on the work without any distractions.

Thanks for the wonderful share.

    Hello Vicky,

    That’s truly needed! Naps are the best thing to boost the power we happen to lose during the day time.

    As a human being is like another machine, they have to rest, the muscles need to relax and mind has to turned off for awhile to re-gain the power.

    I have started taking small naps during afternoon, daily and I can tell you that it is working best for me. Now, I don’t feel sleepy when the clock rings 9pm in the night. πŸ™‚

    Thank you for the comment and liking the content! I see you very often!

Those who have a power backup and also A.C at their homes then they don’t need to worry about any season since they can make the temperature constant and also enjoy it.

Great tips though

    Hello Christy,

    Thank you for your contribution, I so welcome you at my place!

    That’s for sure, an AC is the best source to combat with heat, thus, it is a bit expensive in such countries with high temperature and higher electricity prices. But yeah, those who can afford, can really use it to keep the environment cooler and sustain the temperatures good than ordinary fans.

    Thanks once again for your comment!

    I see you often!

Wow Adeel, heat really sucks for you hey? I never thought about heat in the terms of productivity, or lack there of; I might add. I am lucky, I heave my laptop and pages and pages to the library with me, when it gets too hot. I have not sat at a Shopping Centre Mall before but I have considered it. I have been in places where I leave for the afternoons because they are far too hot and zap the energy right out of you. So that is when I hike it to the library. I have actually fainted once due to heat. I was so concerned, I got my heart monitored and head examined. I got a bit scared swimming thinking; what if I black out here in the pool while doing laps. But I over heated, so I am always mindful of the heat now.

You must be very disciplined to be able to change your time table around to suit the weather. I am a morning person, my brain focuses the best there, so when you say you work of an evening when it is hot, I wonder what time you work when the weather agrees with you. This impresses me. I will give it my all throughout the day, but my mornings are best time for me to write.

I agree with your tips, but somedays I would soak my T-Shirt and then put it on, or put a tea towel around my neck or use a spray bottle. Aim it at the fan and it sprays back at me. And one more thing. I got a picture of you in my mind – bending over at the electricity board, taking out all the plugs, sighing heavily at another big move. You really are focused and that is admirable. Thanks for the write up I thoroughly enjoyed it and got to know a little bit about you.

    Hello Rachel,

    I am sorry for my very late reply; I had a roller-coaster month which put me almost-off from work.

    Opppss.. I have heard the summer turns to be aggressive in some parts of the USA, notably into Arizona, Texas, SF, etc., right?

    The heat is alike a hell burning on us. Nothing seems to work during the peak times and hardly anyone steps out into direct sunlight. Today, I got another heat stroke which is in much-better condition now.

    Yeah, we all have to give it a try at least to be some disciplined in terms of copping up with the summer as the work has to be finished after all despite of what surrounding is knocking out.

    The best thing I have ever devised (which is normal) that stay in a shade and have a fan blowing right above the head to keep it cool. Head and neck are the weakest source to be effected easily by the heat.

    I thank you so much for taking your time reading and leaving this valuable and fabulous feedback! πŸ™‚

    I see you often! πŸ™‚

Hi Adeel,

I too afraid of summer a lot, in India April to June we get high temperatures and I don’t get into the mood to do things for my blog, another problem we face here is power cut because people will start consuming power very hugely these days by using air conditioners.

I hope you are enjoying year end and advanced happy new year 2016.
