Brace yourselves, the second heatwave of the year starts tomorrow, Wednesday, June 17th and will last until Saturday, June 20th.
Temperatures are expected to rise 35 and 37 degrees Celcius (with humidity) Friday and Saturday.

1. Keep a bottle of water with you at all times and try to drink a little every 15 minutes.
2. Adding lemon or cucumber to the water can help with the enjoyment and increase your consumption.
3. If you’re planning on working outdoors, drink water before, during and after and aim to drink 1 cup every hour.
4. Eating fruits with high water content like watermelon and cantaloupe is a great way of keeping hydrated too.
