Youngsters frequently overlook the need for breaks and fluid intake. Thirst is an advanced sign of dehydration - thereby highlighting the importance of keeping hydrated, particularly during long physical activities.
To cool down, the human body relies on perspiration, a process where excessive heat is eliminated as sweat evaporates.
