Invest In Air Conditioning 

Many apartments, homes, and businesses in very hot climates have air conditioning units, but if they don’t it can really be difficult to sleep and function. It is especially important to have air conditioning units in large buildings and factories where they have to take measures to keep equipment cool. Air conditioning may seem expensive at first, but it is far more affordable than expensive business equipment would be to replace. Not only is it smart for your equipment, but your employees will also thank you. 

Stay Hydrated 

Whether you don’t have to work and can just relax all day or you are working outside at a physically demanding job, one of the most important things about living/working in the heat is to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. You should be drinking water every day no matter what the temperature is, but when it’s hot your body needs even more water to function properly. Take a large jug with you and refill it wherever you go, and try adding ice to make it even more refreshing. Remember that once you start to feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated, so drink water all day even if you’re not thirsty. 

Optimize Early Mornings And Late Nights 

Optimizing specific times of the day is a very smart tip when it comes to surviving and thriving in extremely hot temperatures. Planning things out so that you do anything strenuous or anything that requires you to be outdoors in the early hours of the morning or later at night after the sun goes down, as those are the times of day when the temperatures will be lowest. Unfortunately in some places, it can still be extremely hot in the early morning or well after it gets dark, but it will still typically be 10-20 degrees cooler than midday. If you own a business it is a good idea to plan your days around the heat. 

There are many places in the world that experience hot summers, and some places where it can even be hot year-round. With climate change, more places will start experiencing record-breaking temperatures. But now you’ll be prepared to live and work no matter how hot it gets outside!
