How to Deal with the Weather

By Srabon Nath


As the weather transitions from spring to summer, there are many changes that you have

to deal with. Some of these changes might mean that you have to make changes to your

schedule, take precautions, especially if you have certain health conditions, and restrict some

activities.


Obviously, the weather is getting hotter and temperatures are slowly rising into the high 80s and low 90s. This means that you have to stay cool. This is especially true for people with heat-related illnesses. The best way to do this is to stay in air-conditioned buildings and spaces. Air conditioning is the best way to deal with humid conditions. Also, make sure to not constantly be outside during midday when the sun is most relentless. Heat strokes are a real thing and can happen when you are out in high temperatures with a lot of sunlight.


Staying hydrated is also very important. Keep drinking fluids even if you don’t feel

thirsty. However, make sure you drink mostly water. While energy drinks seem to satisfy you,

drinking too much of them can result in serious consequences, especially if the drink has high

amounts of sugar. That is why it is important to be certain to have enough water wherever you

go. It is almost essential that you take showers/baths more often than usual. Not only will they

help you cool down, but they are very important for your hygiene. Sweating all day will have a

toll on your body, and you want to make sure that you are clean.


Wear appropriate clothing throughout the day. It is best to wear light-colored and loose

clothing when you go outside. Also, especially during midday, use sunscreen in places that your

clothing will not cover. This will not only protect your skin from sunburns but can protect you

from skin-related diseases such as skin cancer.


Adjust your activities to fit the weather. While everyone wants to go outside during the

summer, staying indoors during extreme heat is usually the best. Also, schedule your more

intense activities later in the day when it is not so hot.
