How to Surviving a Heat Wave; 9 Tips to Save Lives
Is behavior related to health?
Whether it is a small or big event that happens in daily life or an important event-experience associated with life, it leaves an impression on every body-mind. We have all experienced the passion of the scene in the picture. Experiences such as twisting the fingers or the legs in a certain position and feeling relieved after the scene is over or taking a deep breath indicate that the effects of the scenes in front of us, the thoughts that arise in the mind and the emotions that arise from it are limited to the mind. Not living, also happens on the body.

When is the heat index dangerous?
You may also go through experiences like getting bored, falling asleep, sometimes diarrhea-nausea, not feeling hungry during the preparation of difficult subjects in the exam. Physical effects such as sore throat, sweating while going to a meeting which is very important for job-business may have an effect on the body due to thoughts running in the mind, aggression, anxiety, eagerness.
Such psychosomatic effects are not unique to specific situations. Everyone, big or small, has a psychological effect on their physical, mental and social experiences. With this in mind, it is understandable that efforts alone are not enough to nourish, protect, or strengthen the body. Maintaining health requires maintaining awareness about every aspect physically, mentally and socially. From such a very subtle and far-sighted perspective, Ayurveda has discussed in great detail about the ‘good news’ for maintaining health. Psycho-physical and social well-being for health
The scenes seen in the picture affect the sensory mind through the eye and convey it to the body. In the same way, the body is affected by emotions like anxiety, worry, fear that run from a particular situation in the mind. Which we will call the mutual psychosomatic effect. But Ayurveda says to go beyond here and focus on social life, conduct.
The list of diseases such as heart disease caused by tension, stress, high blood pressure, emotional eating disorder, obesity, irritable bowel syndrome, white spots on the skin, eczema is very long. But despite knowing all this, what and how much can we do about it? Because the effect of conditioning on the mind and body to some extent cannot be completely denied. That is why yoga is limited to asanas only, even in meditation there are thoughts about how to stop the thought, how to just see the thoughts. The implication here is that stress is also for the effectiveness of stress relief measures! This is because of the fact that stress and body-mind disorders are the focus of attention. So the way darkness cannot be erased. Light is enough to remove darkness. Similarly, if one wants to get immunity-protection against stress or psycho-physical or social disorder, then by adopting the ‘good news’ suggested by Ayurveda in the context of today’s modern age, the side effects on health can be prevented.
Everybody, big or small, has a psychological effect on their physical, mental and social experiences.

How do heat waves kill so quickly?
Heat survival tips
- Start prevention early and stay hydrated by drinking half a gallon of water per day if you are indoors. Add to this, 34 to 68 additional ounces of water for every hour of outdoor time, depending on how active you are. Drink before you feel thirsty. If you feel thirsty, you’re already dehydrated.
- Avoid alcoholic or caffeine drinks because they can cause the body to lose more fluids through urine.
- Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing, made of natural fabric or special fabrics designed to wick-away sweat.
- Use a sun hat or umbrella outdoors.
- Eat smaller, more frequent meals.
- Stay indoors as much as possible. If you do not have air conditioning, try to go to a place that is air conditioned for part of the day – library, shopping mall, movie theatre or museum, or visit friends who have air conditioning. The most crucial hours are generally from 1 to 6 p.m.
- Avoid strenuous activity, especially during the hottest part of the day. If you must be outside, take regular breaks.
- Check daily or twice daily during a heat wave on older people, sick or obese people and people who are socially isolated. If you are unable to contact them, go to their location or call 911 with their address. People with heart, lung or kidney disease; ill with a fever; or have high blood pressure, a chronic condition or poor circulation are especially vulnerable during a heat wave. Taking medications such as diuretics, sedatives, tranquilizers, and some heart and blood pressure drugs can also make a person more vulnerable to heat illness. The third day of a heat wave is critical for the human body. Those who have endured extreme heat often can no longer cope after the third day, especially if temperatures remain high at night.
- If you suspect someone is suffering from a heat-related problem:
- Get him out of the heat and into a shady area or air-conditioning.
- Urge him to lie down and loosen clothing so you can apply cool, wet washcloths directly to bare skin. For quickest blood cooling, apply to the neck, wrists, armpits and groin areas.
- Help him to bathe or sponge off with cool water.
- If he is conscious and can swallow safely, offer cool water, fruit or vegetable juices. No alcohol or caffeine.
- If at any time he becomes unresponsive, confused or combative, or has trouble breathing, call 911 immediately. This is a medical emergency!
