We got a taste of warm weather this past week letting us know that summer is coming fast! Here are five tips to prep for the sweat attack while you still have time...

There was a street fair in Queens this weekend and I saw a man out walking with white sweatpants on and no underwear. When I can see the outline of a penis it's a sure sign that warm weather is extremely close.
It has taken me years of New York City living to put together a few easy habits to help keep my body temperature below constant ass sweat during the summer months. I thought I would share a few here in (hopefully) helpful preparation:
1) You may think to yourself, Oh I will just open this window and try to catch a cross breeze. Don't be fooled; there is NO air movement. None. There is no moving air. Period. Once the hot weather hits you can open all the windows you like, it will only work against you and take you all that much longer (and more AC power) to cool back down. As soon as I feel the humidity starting to raise my temper and bloat my fingers I shut all the windows and they remain closed until fall. I keep the curtains drawn. If I take a hot shower I run the cold afterwards. I don't use the stove (who am I kidding I wasn't using the stove anyway).
