With summer just around the corner, temperatures will soon be soaring to new levels and this will leave a lot of people in distress. A normal body temperature runs below 98 degrees Fahrenheit and with global warming looming among everyone, our bodies will be subjected to higher temperatures which will make our systems go into overdrive. Here are some ways you can keep cool so that you avoid getting into heat stroke and other illnesses that come along with the change in weather.
Drink Water Throughout The Day
One of the most overlooked things that people forget to do under the scorching sun is to always drink water. When you sweat, your body loses nutrients and electrolytes needed in order for your system to perform in optimal levels. This can leave your body feeling parched and you will be feeling under the clouds. You might be getting headache spells, your legs will be cramped, your intestinal system might also be affected. You may also feel light headedness and experience blurred vision. The best thing you can do on a daily basis is to bring a water bottle with you wherever you go and especially if you will be out in the field. Fill this container up with water or even a sports drink and constantly take a sip of water at least twice an hour. This will help your body replace the liquids you will lose when you sweat or use the bathroom.
Indulge In Summer Fruits
This summer is a perfect time to get you reacquainted with fruits of the season. There should be a wide variety of choices in fruits in your market. Take the time to experiment and to try out fruits especially fibrous and citrusy ones as these are perfect for the summer heat. Cut up a few fruits when you are not busy and just munch on the fruits while reading a book or enjoying the summer heat. You can also blend in some fruits and make a shake for the kids or some guests as well. This is a lovely time to enjoy and bond with your family all while basking in the summer sunshine.
Set Up A Pool Party Or At The Community Pool
In this sweltering heat, frequenting your local pool club or setting up a pool in the backyard will help you keep cool. Use this opportunity to meet new friends, mingle, and reconnect with lost friends as well. If the community pool is out the way from where you live, there are several pools that you can buy from the market or you can invest in a pool set up by calling a pool contractor to install one in your yard. This may set you back a couple thousand from your bank account but you can be sure that this will pay itself back when you and your family delight in having your own pool to frolic and find amusement for years to come.
Make sure that you and your family stay hydrated when summer rolls around by doing one or all of these tricks and you will never have to worry about heat strokes no matter what season it may be.
