How to weather the heat

July 12, 2019

 

Blazing sun, soaring temperatures - summer’s arrived and what could be better? But it’s worth remembering, as the mercury rises, to drink enough water to stay hydrated. The general recommendation is 6 to 8 glasses of fluid a day - approx 1.2 litres.

 

 

NHS Choices also suggests:

 

  • keep out of the sun between 11am to 3pm, if possible

  • apply sunscreen - at least SPF15 with UVA protection

  • wear UV sunglasses, a hat and loose clothing, if possible

  • don’t leave anyone in a closed, parked vehicle, especially infants, young children or pets

  • keep windows shaded to reduce heat

  • turn off non-essential lights and electrical appliances or devices, as these generate heat

  • check on elderly friends or family who may be more affected by the heat.
