It’s sooo hot outside! I think the surrounding’s temperature already reached 37-38 degrees. Fortunately I’m working in an air-conditioned room right now.

When the weather is hot we need to regularly hydrate ourselves. It is necessary to stay hydrated especially in the season where the temperature is extremely high. How to stay cool and hydrated? Here are some tips:

• Drink lots of water to keep hydrated. Increase your fluid intake especially if you feel very exhausted due to the extreme heat.

• Dress comfortably. Wear light-colored and lightweight clothes, such as sleeveless or short sleeved top; shorts, hats, etc. avoid too much exposure on sun.

• Monitor your health. Extreme heat is dangerous especially for people with health problems because they have a great risk for stroke and other heat related illness. Take vitamins and medications and do not expose yourself to the heat especially with children and older adults.

• Avoid strenuous activity. Stop what you are doing if you feel that you are very exhausted. Drink water during break and rest for a while.

• If possible, it is better to stay indoor. Exposing yourself to sun may lead to heat stroke or skin cancer.  Stay in a cool, ventilated room.

In times like this i prefer to stay in a nipa hut than in a concrete house or metal building unless they are fully air-conditioned. ^_^
