extreme heatwave this summer
Avoid going out in the sun, especially between 12.00 noon and 3.00 p.m.
Drink sufficient water and as often as possible, even if not thirsty
Wear lightweight, light-coloured, loose, and porous cotton clothes. Use protective goggles, umbrella/hat, shoes or chappals while going out in sun.
Avoid strenuous activities when the outside temperature is high. Avoid working outside between 12 noon and 3 p.m.
Avoid alcohol, tea, coffee and carbonated soft drinks, which dehydrates the body.
If you work outside, use a hat or an umbrella and also use a damp cloth on your head, neck, face and limbs
Use ORS, homemade drinks like lassi, torani (rice water), lemon water, buttermilk, etc. which helps to re-hydrate the body.
Keep your home cool, use curtains, shutters or sunshade and open windows at night.
