Ways to Beat the Heat this Summer

Thursday, July 19th, 2018 by Danielle Beaver


When you walk outside and automatically feel the heat hit your face, the humidity smother your body, and your deodorant stop working is when you know it’s a real scorcher. Though most of us would prefer to work in an air conditioned environment, sometimes, that’s not an option. These kinds of days are when you should stay hydrated and take precautions against heat exhaustion or heat stroke.  A heat stroke occurs when the body has become dehydrated, overheated, and surpassed heat exhaustion. Symptoms include: high body temperature, nausea or vomiting, an altered mental state, flushed skin, a headache, and a racing heartbeat. In order to prevent sickness from heat try the following methods:

 

  • Avoid direct sunlight

  • Stay hydrated: drink at least 8 cups of water a day

  • Cool down in your vehicle or a public air conditioned building or a shady area

  • Do not keep children and/or animals in the car without A/C

  • Avoid sugary drinks and alcohol

  • Eat hydrating foods

  • Wear protective clothing and sunblock

 

Also make sure to check on your loved ones who are an infant, elderly, have conditions such as: diabetes, heart conditions, obese, or have other chronic illnesses that require medication.

 

Heat exhaustion and heat stroke can occur on any hot day, make sure to know the symptoms and take action as soon as possible.
