The weather is hot and the sky is clear… Summer has officially arrived! As you make your summer plans, keep in mind that summertime can be dangerous for those who are sensitive to high temperatures. If you are an avid sports fan or an active person yourself, attending sports games throughout the summer may be a part of your schedule and it is important to stay safe from the heat and sun during these activities. Being mindful of the rising temperatures can help ensure a fun and safe vacation for everyone. Check out these tips for staying safe this summer when attending sporting events:
The average adult should be drinking 64 ounces of water a day, so you have to make sure to drink water before you exercise, play sports or just go out into the sun. The body needs hydration before any workout because sweating increases dramatically during exercise; if you don’t drink enough fluids beforehand then your body won’t have enough moisture left over after exercise either! So stay hydrated throughout all stages of your training by drinking plenty beforehand.
FENIX CXT is one of the most refreshing and healthy options if you want to stay hydrated and get a boost of energy and focus on your journey. This refreshing kiwi and apple flavored energy drink helps promote mental sharpness, endurance and motor performance, the best thing is that you can consume 2-3 sachets of Fenix CXT per day and still have less caffeine than many store-bought coffee drinks. Formulated with natural ingredients, this is an energy+focus drink that is actually good for you!
Try not to drink alcohol in the sun
The sun is hot and alcohol dehydrates you, this is the deadly combination that sometimes makes you feel hot and sweaty. Drinking alcoholic beverages can also affect your judgment, making you more likely to overheat in an already warm environment, the reason why keeping your alcohol consumption low is key to surviving under the sun during the dog days of summer.
Instead of drinking during daylight hours when the temperature is relatively moderate but still high enough to get dehydration symptoms (like headaches), drink alcohol later in the evening and in moderation, this will allow you to still have a good time, without a hangover or dehydration episode the next day.
Stay in the shade as much as possible
The most important thing you can do to avoid getting burned is to stay in the shade as much as possible. Stand under trees, umbrellas, tents, and buildings or simply wear a hat with a brim. You should also wear light-colored clothing that covers your skin without being too thick or heavy (think linen shorts). Sunscreen application is essential! Reapply every two hours and after swimming or sweating heavily.
If for some reason you are not feeling well and have a medical condition (e.g., heart problems), it may be best to stay home rather than risk getting worse at a sporting event.
So, there you have it. Summer sporting events are a great way to get out and enjoy some sunshine, but be sure to protect yourself from the sun first! We hope these tips make your next event more comfortable and enjoyable.
