With pandemic restrictions lifting and summer approaching, party goers are hitting music festivals in full force. Whether you’re a seasoned festival goer or attending your first event, it’s a good idea to take extra precautions for your own safety and the safety of others.
Regulate alcohol consumption by avoiding binge drinking. This may dehydrate you or render you so inebriated that you fail to make smart, rational decisions. If you are going to drink alcoholic beverages, make sure to drink plenty of water so keep you properly hydrated. Don’t forget to eat meals throughout the day to keep your body energized. Last but not least, refrain from taking recreational drugs as they may have adverse affects when mixed with alcohol.
Stay Cool and Hydrated
Partying in the hot sun will have adverse side affects on you such as heat stroke, dehydration, or fatigue. Staying hydrated and cool is important to avoid these things or other adverse effects from happening. As always, drink plenty of water or other beverages that contain electrolytes. Wear a hat or some sort of cover to keep the sun from beating down on your head. Don’t forget to protect your eyes and your skin by wearing sunglasses and sunscreen. Hang out in the shade from time to time to get out of the sun.
Chill Out and Take a Break
Limit the time spent partying in the sun to take a much-needed break which helps to prevent heat stroke and exhaustion. Grab some water or a snack and let your body cool down before heading back out into the party. Don’t forget to take your medication if you need it. Festivals may have a first air facility but they’re usually limited in terms of resources.
