Kids frequently fail to realize the necessity for resting and hydrating. Thirst is an advanced indication of dehydration - hence, maintaining hydration, especially during extended physical activities, becomes essential.
One of the main methods the human body employs to cool down is by perspiring, as this process allows sweat to evaporate and remove excess heat. An increase in relative humidity retards evaporation, subsequently reducing the body's heat removal rate and leading to a sensation of being overly warm. Heat-related challenges, like dehydration, can be anticipated when body heat isn't managed effectively.
