Summertime is a awesome time of year. The sun is shinning, the days are longer, and there are so many fun things to do. Here are some things that you can do to enjoy your summer.
1. Mini Fan
You may or may not be experiencing hot flashes; but I do. The weather does not determine you hot flashes, you body does. So I have done two things; I now take the medication that causes hot flashes before my bedtime, as the I tend to experience the side-effect from the meds about an hour after I take them. The other thing I did was, I invested in a plastic mini fan that works with my cell phone. The fan is so small I can put it in my pocket or my make up bag. It was very inexpensive, and has saved me on a number of occasions. Love it.
2. Bug Repellent
I don't leave home without it. You may or may not know, but as a cancer patient you should try and avoid mosquito bites as much as possible. While I don't particularly like to smell I use a deep woods repellent even when not in the woods; which I am rarely ever. I figured it was stronger than the typical off or Skin So Soft. I found a travel spray that looks like a large marker; it fits right in my makeup bag. So far so good, the spray has been working. I also don't use perfumes, or scented soap in the summer. I don't need thing extra. Always check with your doctor when using a new product.
You can never have to much laughing. Watch a comedy, call your funny friend, go to a comedy show, smile, listen to your favorite music, or just simply be in a relaxed environment with friends and family and enjoy to summer. Kick back and live. #lovelife
