Tips for coping with the heat


During this week, care must be taken with sun exposure at times of greater intensity, especially due to burns, sunstroke or dehydration, especially in older adults and children.

Here are some tips to combat high temperatures:

1. Drink a lot of fluids

Doctors no longer usually recommend an exact amount. The most important thing is what you drink: the ideal is fruit juice with one part fruit and three parts water. You can also drink tea. Drinks cannot be taken too cold as the body needs a lot of energy to bring the liquid up to body temperature. For a touch of freshness, it is better to add a little lemon to the drink. Health problems linked to dehydration can occur at all ages, being more frequent in babies and children, older adults and pregnant women.

2. Eat light

The body already has enough with the heat, so it should not be overloaded with fats. Fruits with a lot of water such as melon or peach are ideal as they provide fluids. Meals should be light and easy to digest. Experts also advise avoiding alcohol.

3. Ventilate the home well

A light breeze through the window or air from a fan helps to sleep warm. You can also spray the skin with a fine mist of water before sleeping. All this is better than sleeping with air conditioning. In addition, air conditioning dries the air and with it the respiratory tract, which facilitates infections.

4. Do not shower with very cold water

Although it sounds tempting, the body reacts to this sudden change in temperature by increasing its own. The best is a warm shower with, if anything, some cold jets.

5. If it is very hot, do not go outside

If the thermometer marks a temperature higher than that of your own body, it is better to stay inside. You only have to go to the beach if it is better there because of the sea breeze. It is best to go early in the morning, stay in the shade, hydrate and not move much. In case of physical activity, it is convenient to drink more: the ideal is to add half a liter before and after exercise and drink every 10 to 15 minutes during the process.

6. Beware of children

Adults notice when they are very hot or dehydrated, but children do not. Therefore, parents and grandparents are responsible for preventing them from suffering heat stroke or sunburn. That is why you have to cream them well with protector and they require frequent liquid, in addition to trying to keep them in the shade.

7. Listen to your own body

Before you pass out, your body sends out several warning signals. If you get dizzy or have a headache, go home or take shelter indoors, drink fluids, and cool down. For those who are not in the habit of drinking water, there are cell phone applications that help remember their intake, or they can even use traditional alarms.
