As the temperature rises in Kuwait during the month of June, it’s essential to stay hydrated and protect yourself from the intense heat. Here are a few tips to keep you healthy and safe:

  1. Drink Plenty of Water: Aim to drink at least 8-10 glasses of water daily. Avoid sugary drinks and caffeine, as they can dehydrate you.
  2. Wear Light Clothing: Choose loose, light-colored clothing to help your body stay cool. Cotton and other natural fibers are preferable.
  3. Use Sunscreen: Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Reapply every two hours, especially if you are outdoors.
  4. Stay Indoors During Peak Hours: Avoid going outside between 10 AM and 4 PM when the sun’s rays are the strongest. If you must go out, seek shade whenever possible.
  5. Eat Light Meals: Opt for light, easy-to-digest meals. Include plenty of fruits and vegetables in your diet to keep your energy levels up and stay hydrated.
  6. Exercise Wisely: If you exercise outdoors, do so early in the morning or late in the evening when it’s cooler. Listen to your body and don’t overexert yourself.
  7. Know the Signs of Heat Exhaustion: Symptoms include heavy sweating, weakness, dizziness, nausea, and headache. If you experience any of these, move to a cooler place, drink water, and rest.

By following these simple tips, you can enjoy a healthy and safe summer in Kuwait. Stay cool and take care!
