A guide to being healthy when it’s hot

Drink more water when it’s HOT, When the weather is hot, our bodies  get sweaty, you may get a headache, you may get a urinary tract infection , you may feel sick, you may feel constipated,you might have to go to the hospital and avoid frizzy pop,tea and coffee.

It’s good to drink squash and juice in hot weather.

Stay cool, sit under a tree.

Do things to keep cool at home too, open the windows to let in fresh air and close the curtains if it’s hot and sunny.
