Which brings us to our first matter to kick off Money Matters Mondays with what’s hot in the island and something we need money for:
Hot Weather amidst Water Restrictions.
The heat is hugging everyone, covering us in it’s warmth; on the other side of us is a water restriction. And whilst we encourage friends to do all in their power to stay cool, we have to consider #themoney!!!
How can you possibly save whilst keeping cool in this blistering heat?
During the heat, you are encouraged to stay hydrated (amidst a water crisis in some areas). More hydration means more bathroom breaks and more use of water !!
How much longer can we continue like this?
And individually, what can we all do to ensure that we stay cool and moderate our use of water?
1. Although encouraged to drink a lot of water, moderate by taking sips at a time, and avoid drinking a lot of coffee, tea and alcohol.
2. Eat appropriately. Did you know that consuming large amounts of food makes it take longer to digest and increase body heat? Couple that body heat with this
weather, and you have your very own oven.
Eat smaller portions of food at time, and still allow the body to get the nutrients that it needs.
During this time, you are encouraged to consume more fruits and vegetable than even say meats etc.
3. It is encouraged that you take cooling showers and frequent face-splashes of water. Considering the water restriction, however, and the temptation to do just that – stay directly out of the sun and in your enclosed environs, try and locate the coolest spots.
4. Dress appropriately for the heat- whilst you dress modestly, consider clothing not made of polyester and flannel and stay away from dark coloured clothing
as much as possible.
5. Avoid over exertion – you know what your body can handle, during these temperatures, is not the best time to push yourself. If work, fr instance, requires
you staying outdoors, for example, take frequent breaks and those frequent sips of fluids.
We hope that these tips have been helpful.
