5 Health Hazards To Avoid During Hot Season/Weather


During hot seasons/weather, many tend to be stressed, lazy, uncomfortable and unproductive. This is because of the heat that comes with the weather. 

It is important to be aware of certain things during hot seasons/weather so as not to fall victim of any health hazards. 5 health hazards that comes with hot weather are;

1)  The body loses fluid as sweat during hot weather. This is why it is of utmost importance to always stay hydrated during this period. 

2) Hot season/weather comes with craving for cold things, which is normal. However, we might go overboard with our cravings for cold things by constantly taking too much drinks, soda etc. This is boosting one's sugar level, body's calories and the necessary cholesterol levels needed in the body. 

When one constantly takes cold drinks, you might be refreshing your body for the moment but endangering it in the long run. Instead of cold drinks, why not go for cold water?

3) Hot weather comes with certain sicknesses and diseases like chicken pox, measles, rashes etc. It is necessary not to overly cover children during hot seasons as they might fall victim of these sicknesses. This isn't for children alone, adults can also fall victim of this.

It is also important not to excessively expose children to ACs and fans because of heat as they might get a cold. Finding a balance is key.

4) Heat brings sweats and sweats brings soaked/drained clothes. Always change your children clothes whenever they are soaked with sweats. If their clothes aren't changed often when drained with sweat, the wet clothes absorbs into their bodies giving them serious cold.

5) Hot weather makes one restless.  Bathing often makes one re-energised and reduces restlessness to the minimum.

  1. Nice post! Keep it up Chidinma.
    Let me add to this. Our hands gets dirty easily when the weather is hot. People commonly wipe their faces with their dirty hands, this can cause acne, pimples and irritation to the face. I advice washing of hands always to avoid eating bacteria and irritating the skin.

    1. Thanks Anon. Washing our hands is good but also is using an handkerchief to clean sweats. Hot weather births oily face and oily face births pimples etc.
      I believe using handkerchief and washing the face during hot weather can help reduce this to the minimum.
