Tips to Help You Stay Well During Hot Weather

With summer right around the corner here are some healthful tips:

  • Drink plenty of water
    • One of the best ways to avoid heat-related illness is to drink plenty of water. It’s important to keep drinking water even if you don’t feel thirsty because this can prevent you from becoming dehydrated.
  • Keep your body cool
    • Keeping as cool as possible can also help you prevent heat-related illness. Make sure you stay out of the sun. Drinking cold drinks and eating smaller, cold meals, such as salads and fruit, can also help you to keep cool.
  • Keep your house cool
    • You can help keep your house cool by shutting curtains and blinds during the day. If you don’t have air-conditioning, go to a cool place such as a library, shopping center, cinema or swimming pool.
  • Stay safe in the sun
    • If you need to go out in the sun, it's important to protect your own and your children's skin.
