This high temperature poses a danger to humans, especially those who belong to the most vulnerable groups such as children and the elderly.
And the British “Sky News” network presented a series of advice, quoting the health and meteorological authorities, in order for a person to remain refreshed and not endanger himself in this atmosphere, including:
stay hydrated: This may seem obvious, but drinking plenty of water is something that is often overlooked.
Staying hydrated requires work internally and externally, and this is done internally by drinking quantities of water ranging between 1.5-2 liters per day, and externally this can be secured by taking a shower with cold water.
Close windows: It may seem counterintuitive, but keeping windows closed and curtains lowered during peak heat will keep the room cooler.
And when it’s cooler outside, you can open the windows for ventilation.
Pajamas in the fridge: During the day, you can put the pajamas in the refrigerator during the day, and then take them out of there before going to sleep, this will help you sleep better.
It is preferable to wear loose clothing during the day, a hat and sunglasses.
It is recommended that the clothes chosen be of light colors, this helps you to stay fresh.
Turn on the fan: Fans can help the human body regulate its internal temperature, and the capacity of these fans can be enhanced by placing a bowl of ice cubes in front of these machines, as this will make the circulating air cooler.
Quilt toss: The thin cotton sheets will absorb sweat, which is more comfortable than a duvet cover.
This will help lower your temperature at night, but quilting does not.
Lower floor: If your house has more than one floor, it will be appropriate to sleep on the lower floor and spend more time in the coolest parts of the house.
Plan first: If you plan to spend some time outside, plan ahead, such as providing adequate amounts of water, food and any needed medications.
And the Public Health Authority in Britain says that anyone at risk of the effects of heat more than others, should avoid sunlight in the hottest part of the day, which is usually between the hours of eleven in the morning and three in the afternoon.
