To combat the heat, Bard, Google's artificial intelligence, suggested constantly hydrating and, if possible, carrying out the necessary activities in the shade and in cool environments.

The current climate can be stifling and dangerous, especially for the most vulnerable people such as the elderly, children and people with chronic illnesses. For these reasons, artificial intelligence advises:
1. Constant hydration:
The AI determined that dehydration is one of the main heat-related risks. The body needs water to regulate body temperature, eliminate toxins, and maintain the functioning of vital organs.
How to stay hydrated?
Drink water frequently, even if you are not thirsty. Carry a bottle of water and drink throughout the day. Avoid sugary or caffeinated drinks, as they can dehydrate. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, which also contain water.

2. Carry out activities in the shade and in cool environments:
Prolonged exposure to the sun can cause sunstroke, heat stroke and other health problems. The AI recommends that the activities we have to do, we try to do them in the shade and in cool environments.
How to stay cool?
Spend time in shady places, such as trees, buildings, or under umbrellas. Wear light, loose-fitting, light-colored clothing. Wear a hat or cap to protect your head from the sun. Take cold showers or baths to lower your body temperature.
