5 Ways To Keep Cool In The Hammer

If your house is feeling more like a sauna and
you are looking for a way to enjoy the beautiful sunshine without melting in the heat, here are five ways that you can beat the heat in Hamilton:

1. Attend a Public Swim
The Valley Park Arena and Rec Centre in Stoney Creek offers public swims at specific hours throughout the week.

The Centre is located at 970 Paramount Drive.

2. Eat a Frozen Treat
Get together with friends and split a Treatzza Pizza from Dairy Queen (my personal favourite!), or make your way over to Scoops Ice Cream and Fudge Shop for a scoop of ice cream or sorbet.

Dairy Queen
1070 Stone Church Road East #49

Scoops Ice Cream and Fudge Shop

3. Go to the Hamilton Public Library
Pick up “March of the Penguins” and visualize…
Located on 955 King Street West.

4. Teach Yourself Origami
Make your very own fan! Purchase some patterned paper at Creative Memories in Dundas, or create your own personal design with a plain piece of paper and some pencil crayons.

5. Watch a Horror Film
When you are nervous, your body’s response is to sweat from your palms and soles (Source: www.sweathelp.org). The more you sweat, the cooler you get! So take the bus up to SilverCity on the Hamilton Mountain and check out the latest thriller!

And if none of these options suit your cool-down needs, an ice-cube-filled bathtub should work!
