Avoid Heat Stroke This Summer!

It has been excruciatingly hot this past few days! As one of those who live in a non-air conditioned apartment, I am suffering from sleep deprivation! Lol! This is part of the year that I obviously don't like much unless I get to enjoy a summer getaway!

Here are some favorite summer photos of mine!!!

The heat is definitely on! I bet most of you out there have different plans to enjoy this time of the year!

Just a friendly reminder though, please be careful when having fun under the sun. Don't be a victim of Hyperthemia or most commonly known as heat stroke.

Definition

According to Wikipedia, hyperthemia is an acute condition which occurs when the body produces or absorbs more heat than it can dissipate. It is usually caused by prolonged exposure to high temperatures. The heat-regulating mechanisms of the body eventually become overwhelmed and unable to effectively deal with the heat, causing the body temperature to climb uncontrollably.

Signs and Symptoms

Nausea, vomiting, fatigue, weakness, headache, muscle cramps and dizziness.

How to prevent heat stroke

  • As much as possible, wear something light and loose.
  • Wear a hat or be safe under your umbrella (ella, ella, ei! Lol!).
  • Avoid doing strenuous exercise during daylight hours in a hot weather.
  • Drink plenty of liquids. (Don't wait til you get thirsty) Drink at least 1 cup every 15 minutes.
  • Avoid alcohol, caffeinated drinks, or heavy meals.

Let's all be safe while we enjoy the summer! Let's avoid heat stroke!
