Metabolic heat is needed to break down food, so eating smaller portions can help keep you cooler. ☀️ Keep hydrated Sweating can cause dehydration, making you more susceptible to heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Drinking cool glasses of water throughout the day can be enough to bring your body temperature down. ☀️ Get low Hot air rises, so get down as low as you can to make sure you’re surrounded by cool air. Sleep on the floor, or even head downstairs, if you’re getting desperate to escape the heat. ☀️ Raines your wrists Washing either your wrists or your feet with cold water before you hit the hay can help you to cool down and drift off. ☀️ Keep your moisturisers in the fridge On a hot day, you get get a bit of much-needed rejuvenation by applying a cold moisturiser to your body. Keeping your products in the fridge will create this cooling effect without any hassle. ☀️ Stay connected Make sure that you can contact your elderly relatives and that you stay abreast of the weather over the weekend. You need to know the changing weather landscape if you’re going to plan your activities in the safest and most fun way possible ⚠️ If you believe you or someone else is suffering with heat exhaustion, move them to a cool place, get them to lie down and give them plenty of fluids to drink.
