The weather is getting hotter as the summer progresses, and as the temperature goes up it is easier for your body to get sick. This article will introduce the main symptoms of heat stroke and how to prevent it.
《Main Symptoms of Heat Stroke》

① Staying hydrated
One of the causes of heat stroke is dehydration. It is important to continue drinking liquid even before you feel thirsty. You must also replace the sodium in your body if you have sweated a lot in the heat.
② Preventing your body temperature from rising
Choose light, airy fabrics for your clothes and avoid direct sunlight by wearing a hat or using a parasol. Try to avoid going outside unnecessarily in the afternoon when the day is at its hottest.
Enjoy your summer while preventing heat stroke!
