Stay hydrated

Working outside in the heat can be exhausting and it’s crucial to maintain hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids. This ensures that the volume of blood and sweat is maintained, allowing the body to shed heat through perspiration. The ideal liquid to keep yourself cool is a chilly mixture of ice and water. A recent US study has found that this is as effective as ambient temperature water, even when consumed in half the quantity. So remember to drink plenty of refreshing ice-cold water when you’re out and about this summer.
