How do you cool yourself off on a hot summer day? Try a cup of hot coffee! I never thought that would be the answer but according to a recent study, a hot beverage can actually help you cool off. The article I read stated that it works only under certain conditions such as low humidity but it was tested in a lab. So the next time you are hot after going out to a site visit, try a hot cup of coffee or tea to cool off instead of a pop or ice tea.
I thought it was interesting but I think I will have a hard time trying to drink a cup of coffee when I’m already hot.
