first_imgFestival season is almost over, but it’s still the hottest time of year. Beyond the obvious methods of sleep, hydration, and sunscreen, we’re here to give you a few tips to survive these next few weeks, so that you can return to work on Monday without feeling like a total sun-dried tomato.Without further ado, here are five easy ways to survive multi-day music festivals:5. Keep the bugs away by putting dryer sheets in your pocket.That’s right. If you put a Bounce dryer sheet in your pocket, it will naturally repel mosquitoes from eating you alive. It’s a simple, affordable solution to one of the most annoying problems that we almost always forget to anticipate in an outdoor setting. So as you’re packing for the weekend, you might as well pre-pack each pocket with a dryer sheet. For maximum results, wear cargo shorts.4. Drink 1 liter of coconut water every day.Coconut water is an extremely valuable source of hydration. It also facilitates digestion, reduces blood pressure, provides necessary nutrients, and is a natural hangover cure.According to lifehack.org, “The ingredients in coconut water are way more effective at hydrating the human body than those of sports and energy drinks. During rigorous exercise or extended periods of physical activity, the human body loses mineral-rich fluids. However, coconut water serves as an excellent replacement medium with 294 mg of potassium and 5 mg of natural sugar per glass, unlike your favorite sports drink that only contains half of the potassium content and five times the amount of processed sugar.”So put that sports drink away, and grab what the Earth has already provided for us. Make the liter last all day and you’ll be hydrated and ready to go all night long! Best to be consumed before bed and/or when you wake up.3. Sit down as much as possible, and close your eyes.Remember that it’s a marathon, not a sprint. If you have a foldable chair, bring it. Give those puppies a rest, they deserve it! Then close your eyes. You don’t need to fall sleep in order to get rest. If you close your eyes for just a few minutes, you will save your brain enough processing energy to last just a little bit longer later on. 2. Eat a plant-based diet. Food = Energy, so make it count. If you load yourself up with processed, fried, or saturated fats, your body won’t have enough energy to last its full potential. Instead, you should eat as many fruits and vegetables as possible to ensure that your body’s energy level will sustain through the long days and nights of walking, dancing, and everything else involved in these adventurous weekends. 1. Shower. Sleeping outside is no excuse not to shower. In fact, it’s really just another reason why you SHOULD shower! Pick a time where the lines aren’t long and get yourself in the water. Not only will it bathe you of all germs and odors, but it will revitalize your very existence with a wave of fresh energy that is otherwise unattainable. A shower will save your life (and make you more pleasant to be around). Soap recommended.Have a great weekend!last_img read more

first_imgRelatedPosts EPL: Gunners survive West Ham scare EPL: Gunners gun for West Ham scalp Martinez completes £20m Aston Villa move John Fleck struck a late equaliser as Sheffield United came from behind to seal a Premier League point against a frustrated Arsenal. Gabriel Martinelli’s ninth goal in 10 Arsenal starts appeared to have the Gunners on course for a win but Fleck struck with seven minutes remaining to secure a 1-1 draw for the visitors. Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta was without captain and top goalscorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who watched from the stands as his replacement Martinelli scored at the end of a quiet first half. He even tweeted that he saw Martinelli, 18, as a future “superstar” as the Brazilian and Bukayao Saka – three months his junior and playing out of position at left-back – were Arsenal’s best players. But as they have struggled to do for some time, the hosts could not see out the contest and had to settle for a share of the spoils which sees them ninth in the table and four points adrift of the Blades. It was a nervy start at the back for Arsenal, with recalled Shkodran Mustafi losing possession on the touchline and Lys Mousset sending a good headed chance wide. Arteta’s side were almost playing on the counter-attack in the opening exchanges, relying on the pace of Nicolas Pepe and Martinelli to get them in behind – the pair combining for the latter to shoot off-target. Martinelli then fired wide having been slipped in by Pepe once more as the Gunners looked to show they could cope with losing their go-to goalscorer. It would be Martinelli, the only man close to Aubameyang’s numbers so far this season, who opened the scoring in the final minute of the first-half. The 18-year-old drifted into the middle unmarked to turn Saka’s deflected shot in from close range. The visitors were almost gifted an equaliser 10 minutes after the interval, Bernd Leno getting nowhere near a corner and Granit Xhaka having to hack Billy Sharp’s effort off the line – with Sheffield United’s players bellowing for handball against the midfielder. A VAR check cleared Xhaka but Chris Wilder’s side began forcing the issue in the search for an equaliser. The video referee then sided with on-field official Mike Dean – taking charge of his 500th Premier League game – and did not award a penalty to Arsenal even though Pepe appeared to be tripped. Arsenal were struggling to create openings to secure the points and were lucky to see an unmarked Oli McBurnie head straight at Leno with 10 minutes remaining. But their luck ran out soon after as Sharp flicked a Callum Robinson cross into the path of Fleck, whose shot into the ground flashed into the corner of Leno’s net. Mustafi’s late header could not test Dean Henderson in the United goal as the game ended in a draw.Tags: Bukayo SakaGabriel MatinelliJohn FleckMikel ArtetaPierre-Emerick AubameyangSheffield Unitedlast_img read more
