Having fun in hot weather, and how to find a personal injury law firm in Hyndburn if you have an accident
Hot weather is generally associated with getting outside and having fun with friends or family. However, hot weather can also be dangerous for your health if you don’t know how to protect yourself from the sun and heat. You shouldn’t avoid going out when the weather is very hot, but you should have some precautions put in place to keep you safe throughout the day, and know what to do if you do get too hot or feel that you may be getting burned by the sun.
- Take lots of breaks. Make sure that you get out of direct sunlight from time to time to cool down and rehydrate. If you are on the beach or there is a breeze, you might not even notice that you are being burned by the sun until it is too late, so take some time out.
- Stay hydrated. Bring plenty of water or juice with you for a day out in the sun, and make sure that everyone in your party is drinking as much as they can throughout the day. In hot weather you lose a lot of sweat, which can make you very dehydrated very quickly.
- Wear sunscreen. Put on plenty of high-factor sunscreen before you leave the house, and top it up every couple of hours to prevent sunburn. Apply more if you go in the water at any point.
- Stay out of the sun during early afternoon. The hottest part of the day, when you are more likely to be burned or suffer heatstroke, is around lunchtime. It is always best to avoid the sun during this time, in order to stay safe and avoid making yourself ill from the heat.
