The weather is changing in Qatar as it moves from a (pretty) cold and windy winter to a lovely breezy, warm spring. Though the weather is perfect right now and it’s a great time to be outdoors and do things outside you may think twice about doing once the summer kicks in and the temperatures soars, there are some things to keep in mind during the changing weather to ensure you can make the most of it and stay healthy!
Let’s talk about some life hacks to ensure you can enjoy the changing weather from winter to spring without having to compromise on your health.
As the weather changes and the weather becomes hotter, it’s very important to drink plenty of water. This will not only keep your body hydrated, it will also hydrate your skin and keep it soft and supple protecting it from the dryness of the heat.
As the temperature increases and the days get hotter, don’t forget to slap on that sunscreen when you go out to protect your skin from the harmful effects on the ultraviolet (UV) A and B rays.
With the changing weather come problems like dry eyes which may lead to scratchiness, itchiness, redness or soreness. To avoid dry eyes, you may need eye drops or eye ointments that moisten the eyes.
Another way to avoid dry eyes is to spend less time on electronic devices. The more time you spend on these devices puts strain on your eyes and can also make your eyes dry. Limit time spent on electronic devices and so something else instead that will not strain or dry your eyes.
As the weather warms and you can feel that spring is in the air, this also means that there is an increase in the pollen count - as the flowers continue to blossom and the breeze carries pollen from place to place - and mold in the home which may cause allergies in some. These allergies may cause irritation, itchiness, soreness or redness of the eyes, throat and nose.
To avoid the allergies from pollen and mould from flaring up, make sure you frequently wash your hands and if you have been outdoors, wash your clothes when you come home to lower the pollen count around you. Also keep an eye out on the pollen count if you do suffer from allergies and try to stay indoors with the doors and windows shut when the count is high and try to keep the air pure with an air purifier and dehumidify the air with a dehumidifers to avoid the growth of mould.
To keep the air pure from pollen and other airborne allergens and breathable, it’s a good idea to have an air purifier, especially, in a country like Qatar where there is a lot of dust and sand flying around when its windy.
If you want to reduce and remove the growth of mould in your house, especially in moister rooms like the kitchen and the bathroom, a dehumidifier is a good thing to have, as it will remove the extra moisture from the air.
