If you, like numerous others, decide to move in the summer seasons amidst the sweltering hot sun, then you need to be prepared to face the brunt of it too. Even though you are moving in the summer season, it is best to check the weather beforehand and choose a day which is hotter than the others.
The humid summer temperatures can put your health at risk and therefore, to avoid falling ill on the day of your relocation, here are some tips to keep your cool and win over the summer.
Drink plenty of water
First things first. Drink as much water as you can. Fluids are also okay, but nothing can replace the goodness of the water. Have a big jar full of water at your side when you work and take a sip at it often. Have a time set and try to drink the whole jar within the time. There are plenty of chances to get dehydrated when you are working hard during the summer season and the best way to avoid getting sick is to simply stay hydrated. Of course, you may be bored with drinking water all day long, so you can also add in some fresh fruit juices and such to keep your body cool and hydrated.
Take short breaks
Due to the heaviness of the work and the added heavy sweating of the body, it is possible for your energy sooner than you imagined. Hence before you could totally get to zero energy level, take a short break, drink some juices, refresh yourself and rest yourself before getting back to the task. Especially when your work involves standing in the sun for long hours, your energy will drain much faster, and therefore, plan your breaks accordingly.
Wear light, airy and loose-fitted clothes
Pick out the choice of your clothes in the summer season wisely. If you wear some thick and tight dresses, there are high chances of getting dizzy and breathless sooner in the hot sun. Wear clothes that allow your skin to breathe and let some air inside the dress even while you sweat. Prefer light-colored clothes to dark shades as the dark color is known to absorb the heat which in turn will make your body hot, humid, and sweaty.
When you are working indoors, use an air conditioner to cool yourself, but in case if your work is alternatively moving out and in, then don’t keep the AC temperature too low as the body will have a hard time getting accustomed to it either of the temperatures.
Avoid working in the peak time
Prepare your schedule in such a way that your work is completed before the peak time of the sunsets in or you take a nice long break indoors during that time. Start your work early in the morning and get most of the outdoor work completed. As the temperature increases shift the work to the inside and avoid going out in the sun. When the peak hour of the sun hits, i.e. the highest temperature of the day usually in the noontime, take a break to eat and relax with your family and resume your work when the temperature is starting to become comfortable.
