It's hot outside

If you live in Louisiana, you know without a shadow of a doubt that it’s HOT in the summer! 

Here are some tips to stay hydrated and cool: 

  1. Drink at least 8ozs of water (or Gatorade, Pedialyte or Body Amour).  Coconut water is something to drink in addition to water to remain hydrated.  And don’t wait until you’re about to pass out, drink water all day long. 

  2. Eat fruits and veggies that are water-rich, such as watermelon and cucumbers.  You can also mix both of these in water and sip on all day.  Tuna salads with lettuce are also rich in water and it’s a light, cool meal to enjoy.

  3. Stay inside!  But if your house is hot and you’re able to get out and about in the community, go somewhere cool, such as a library, mall or even Wal-Mart. 

  4. Wear cool clothes that de-tract the heat, such as long cool, cottony tops and loose-fitting cotton pants, etc. 

  5. Don’t do outside activities in the heat of the day (noon-5).  Cut your grass or water your plants in the early, cool mornings or late in the evenings. (Samhealth.org)

 

 

If you feel any of the following, call 9-1-1 as soon as possible:  cramps, heat rash, dizziness or nausea.

  • If you need a cooling resource such as fan, you’re 60 years or older and a client of the West Baton Rouge Council on Aging, PLEASE CALL US at:              (225) 383-0638.
