The hot and dry season is back in the Philippines so together with the heatwaves, you need to take note of ways to prevent heat stroke which is one of the top reasons of fatality listed for deaths that occur during the driest parts of the year. Since there are a number of ways to fight off the heat during the dry season which we can easily lose track of, I’ve narrowed the list down to the three most important ones.

Drink Plenty of Water. I cannot stress enough how important it is for us to drink plenty of water. You’ll find this in all available blogs, reminders, news articles, etc. and they are there for a reason. Our body is made up of 70% water. And this water is what we lose when we sweat so to avoid dehydration which can lead to any number of complications that can be fatal. So drink, drink, drink your water is what I would say!

Always bring an umbrella. An umbrella is not just used to fight off rain, it also serves as your very own shade wherever you go so always, always bring an umbrella with you wherever you go. And if you are the type that tends to have an aversion against bringing lots of things, then the small fold-able umbrellas can be of better use to you. You can pick any fold-able umbrella up at any grocery or specialty stores at very good prices, much like darbuka at guitarcenter.com.

Bring your very own fan. No matter where you go, you’ll always have that moment when you will have to stand in a location with no air-conditioning. Or worse, with no breeze but the hot humid weather. So you only need to stand for a full two minutes and you’ll be sweating from head to toe. Gross, right? Absolutely! So what can you bring which can help you cool down a bit? That’s right! Your own handy-dandy, fan! A fan is very small and you only need a very small space to fit it in your bag. So when you can, always have fan which you can bring everywhere you go.

So there you have it! All you need to remember to bring with you anywhere you go narrowed down to three easy to remember tips!

Cheers!
