Some advice for times of a heat wave

Zitat:
NEWSLETTER JULY 2019

Dear Expats,

The heat is the main topic of conversation at the moment. It seems to be getting better, but there may be another heat wave on the way. If you haven’t yet noticed, air-conditioners are not standard issue in Germany. Here are some tips to keep cool:

Drink plenty of liquids – mineral water or juices (e.g. Schorle) are good choices.

Alcohol and caffeine should be reduced to a minimum.

Take advantage of the cooler morning or evening hours for sports and exercise.

As they say in Australia: “Between 11 and 3, stay under a tree” — i.e. look for shade.

Wear loose and light-colored clothing – preferably cotton or linen.

Wear a hat if going in the sun.

In your apartment/house, close the blinds or shutters during the day. In the evening, open up the windows and doors to let fresh (hopefully cooler) air in.

Take lukewarm showers. Don’t completely dry yourself. The excess moisture will evaporate and cool you.

Avoid temperature extremes, i.e., don’t jump into a cold lake – start with your feet and hands and slowly work your way into the water. Avoid hot or cold showers. Avoid hot or ice cold drinks. The extremes make your body work harder, which makes you warmer.

Using a wet cloth, wipe your face, neck and hands and let them air dry.

Avoid heavy or fatty foods. These take more energy to process which will make you warmer.

That being said, there are so many outdoor activities in the area right now, so be sure to take advantage of them – with caution if it gets extremely warm. Some are listed below in the Calendar of Events.
