Young ones often disregard the necessity to rest and hydrate. Thirst usually indicates advanced dehydration - hence, it is key to stay hydrated, particularly during ongoing physical activities.
Perspiration and the resultant sweat evaporation are the body's natural thermostat, helping regulate temperature. Under high air temperature coupled with high humidity (high heat index), the body's perspiration is reduced, intensifying the sensation of heat. When body temperature rises due to excess heat gain beyond its removal capability, one might experience heat-related disorders.
