The Berlin Senate Department for Health provides tips for correct behavior at high temperatures on its website. She recommends, among other things, the continuous drinking of non-alcoholic beverages and the enjoyment of light food such as fruit and vegetables rich in water.
Physical stress such as sport should also be avoided. “If you have to do physical work, pay attention to your fluid intake and drink enough,” advises the health administration. Outdoor activities should be shifted to the morning and evening hours. Direct sunlight should be avoided; the authority advises sunscreen, air-permeable clothing, hats and sunglasses.
Rooms should be ventilated as early as possible in the morning, in the evening or at night when the air outside is cooler than inside. “Darken the rooms with shutters, awnings and curtains during the day,” the health administration website also says.
