With March now behind us, we have officially entered spring season. Which means it is going to get hotter, so drink lots of water, even if you don’t feel thirsty. Take a bottle with you always. Water is essential for keeping you cool during hot weather. It is okay to also drink flavored water (like Vitamin Water) or sports drink like Powerade or Gatorade, but they’re usually not necessary unless you’re replenishing lost vitamins/electrolytes or if you’ve engaged in a vigorous activity.

Keeping as cool as possible can also help you prevent heat related illness. Make sure to stay out of the sun. Eating cold meals, such as salads and fruit, can also help you keep cool.

Other things to do include wearing light colored and loose-fitting clothes, and taking cool showers or baths.

And remember to Wash your hands often we are still on a global pandemic, so keep those hands clean. Also avoid close contact with people who are sick, and stay home as MUCH as possible.

“It is important to stay inside as much as possible because you don’t want to catch the virus,” said an  anonymous 8th grader.
