Misting Systems for Summer
Now with the issue of climate change, the heat of the sun can be too much. Being out under the sun is really draining, and you can’t just stay outdoors for quite long. But summer is the time for beautiful beaches, hyper sports activities, exciting land travels, and many other activities that require you to stay out under the sun. You cannot miss those, of course, but you cannot also risk yourself into suffering body overheat. You are not torn between enjoying outdoors or staying in the comforts of your home. But it’s summer, right?
What are the Risks?
You have to realize that when the body overheats, it affects not only your health but your overall performance as well. Your body usually functions at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. You now have a problem when your body experiences suppressed oxygen levels due to high humidity. This is when your body struggles with dizziness. You experience nausea at any time of the day and you have difficulty to move because of muscle cramps. Under too much exposure to the sun, the worst cases you can experience are fainting to the point of seizure. Some cases even lead to coma and death. Those who have prolonged exposure to the sun have higher risks of heat stroke that is very dangerous to the health.
You’d know if you’re have body overheat when you’re experiencing excessive sweating, thirst and fatigue. Uneasiness, uncoordinated body movements and confusion can also be symptoms to overheat. When your skin, especially the palm, gets dry and when you have elevated pulse, that is the time you really have to seek attention from your physician.
What can you do to avoid overheat?
Make sure you drink at least eight glasses of water a day. Refrain from using skin care products too! You have to protect your body when going outdoors so you are not too exposed to the sun. You can choose from caps, hats, shawls, long sleeves and other protective gears. Be sure that you bring with you a bottle of water especially when doing strenuous activities under the sun such as hiking or long hours of walking. When you are preparing an outdoor activity for your family and friends, make sure you have cooling systems to cool the temperature.
Mist systems are one great option to cool a room temperature. It can be placed in your garden or in your patio.
