Why Extreme Heat Can Be Dangerous
Extreme temperatures and air pressure swings can be especially hard on some of us:
- Elderly people, young children, and babies
- People with health conditions such as diabetes, heart diseases, respiratory issues, etc.
- People with obesity
- People on certain types of medication — we recommend double-checking with your doctor
- People with mobility problems
- People who consume alcohol and/or drugs
- People who are not acclimatized to the heat, for example, visitors
- Let us not forget about PETS! They can’t tell us they are suffering from the heat, however, that extra layer of fur doesn’t help when the thermometer goes up.
10 Tips on How to Avoid Summer Heat
Now we will go over the main tips on how to avoid the summer heat. These are things that will help you stay safe during the hot weather. We would also like to point out that you should always consult with your doctor if you have any questions about how the heat may affect your health.
Limit the outdoor activity when the sun is at its hottest. This concerns sports in particular — it can be tempting to play tennis in the sun; however, it is twice as hard on your body. If you absolutely must be outside during extreme temperatures, stay hydrated, wear light fabrics and pace your activity.
1.Stay hydrated and don’t wait to be thirsty to drink water
Did you know that thirst is a sign you are already dehydrated? At the same time, only clean water counts as hydration. Tea, coffee, alcohol, and sodas dehydrate the body and only contribute to the negative effects of hot weather.
2.Keep your house cool
Your home is your chill castle in summer. However, you want to avoid extreme temperature changes when you enter your place from the outside — air conditioning causes an insane number of colds in summer. Being sick in July is something you want to avoid.
3.Take care of your four-legged friends
Take care of your four-legged friends and their comfort in summer — you can check out more on this in one of our recent articles on making your house pet friendly.
4. Wear sunscreen
Even when you are not on the beach. Even if it’s cloudy. The clouds let through 80% of UV. Apply SPF 15 minutes before going out and then reapply it every two hours when you’re in the sun — sweating can also wear it off. Make sure your sunglasses come with UV protection as well — the sensitive skin around your eyes will thank you!
5.Wear loose, light-colored, and breathable clothing
Cotton is your best friend in summer. It is light, air-permeable, and will absorb sweat instead of sticking to your skin.
6.Avoid a heatwave if you can
If you are planning a trip to the beach or any other hot destination, check the weather forecast in advance — it's better to sit it out rather than have a sunburn. If there is a heatwave advisory, it might be best to postpone your plans. Be aware of how medications can affect your body’s reaction to heat.
7.Use the stove and the oven as little as possible
This one goes together with keeping your house cool — don’t add unnecessary degrees to the temperature in your cool castle.
8.Keep your food safe
Refrigerate everything that needs refrigerating and defrost produce in the fridge, not outside!
9.Take cool showers or baths to cool down
Great life hack to improve blood circulation as well!
IMPORTANT: Be aware of how medications can affect your body’s reaction to heat. Consult your doctor on the subject.
What to do if you are left without an AC unit in the heat?
If you are suddenly left without air conditioning in the heat, a portable air cooler is an excellent, inexpensive way to keep cool. Portable air coolers use evaporation to cool the surrounding air, and many come with a water tank that you can refill. Be sure to place the portable air cooler in a spot where it will have access to airflow, as this will help you cool down faster.
Evapolar devices are simply life-saving thanks to their portability, small size and efficiency. Even if you are somewhere without a socket, you can plug them into a portable battery or your laptop and enjoy the coolness.
