: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature' or 'feels like', measures the perceived warmth when incorporating the humidity present in the air. Factors such as metabolic variations, being pregnant, and physical activity can impact an individual's weather perception. Keep it in mind, direct sunlight can augment the heat you experience, possibly pushing the heat index up by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are particularly relevant to children. Kids often lack the knowledge about the necessity to take breaks and consume liquids. Thirst, as a late symptom of dehydration, necessitates the maintenance of hydration, particularly during enduring physical activities.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration. Excessive warmth is eliminated from the body by evaporation of sweat. A surge in relative humidity can disrupt the body's normal cooling function by slowing evaporation, hence reducing the rate at which the body cools and intensifying the perception of heat. Accumulating more heat than the body can dissipate leads to an uptick in body temperature, with potential heat stress consequences.

Utilize every vital safety procedure. Individuals with light skin may endure burns in less than 5 minutes. Stay out of direct sunlight and seek shade between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when UV radiation is strongest, but remember that shade devices may not offer full sun protection. Sun protection is enhanced with clothing that boasts a tight weave yet offers a loose fit. A broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30+ should be liberally applied and re-applied every two hours, and immediately after an outdoor workout or a swim. Heed this! UV intensity is much stronger when reflected off sand and water.
