The UAE experiences sunny weather almost all year, however, it is very hot, especially in the summer. Studying and living under such weather conditions can be rather difficult for a student, especially if he or she originates from a colder zone. Nevertheless, if certain changes are made and some effective strategies are applied, one can experience a good life in the UAE’s stimulating atmosphere.

Staying Cool and Hydrated​


But one has to note that the temperature in the UAE can be really hot and quite often it does not let up. Here’s how to stay comfortable and avoid dehydration:

Hydrate: This may sound like a no-brainer but it is rather essential. Drink water from a BPA-free container and take this bottle with you wherever you go; drink small portions of water frequently throughout the day. Avoid soft drinks because they make you more dehydrated than water.

Dress for the Heat: Wear loose, thin, and airy clothing that includes natural fiber such as cotton or linen will facilitate free air circulation and therefore cool air. Choose a light-colored outfit that tends to reflect the sunlight.

Seek Shade and Air Conditioning: It is also advised to plan your outdoor activities in the cooler parts of the day, either in the morning or in the evening. Especially, try to be in air-conditioned structures such as libraries, malls, and study areas during the hottest moments of the day.

Sunscreen is Essential: Keep your skin from getting damaged by the sun’s ultraviolet rays by using a broad-spectrum sunscreen of 30 or above. Mix it well and re-apply every two hours, in case you sweated or splashed in water. Also don’t neglect your lips, use lip balm and if possible, wear a hat which has a wide brim.

Adjusting Your Routine​


The heat can disrupt your usual routine, so some adjustments might be necessary: The heat can disrupt your usual routine, so some adjustments might be necessary:

Plan Your Day : Make the outdoor activities such as chores or exercise to be during the early morning or evening when it is cool. Concentrate on the classes during the daytime when you are going to spend most of the time in the room.

Embrace Indoor Activities: Use the many indoor places found in UAE, for instance; museums, art galleries, and entertainment places. These are good shelters from heat and also they act as place that one can learn and have fun.

Get Enough Sleep: Heat can also affect the quality of the sleep since it causes people to wake up at odd times. Make sure you sleep in a cool and dark room, and stick to a consistent sleep pattern to rest your body well.

Sustainability Tips for Hot Climates​


While staying cool, you can also contribute to a sustainable lifestyle:

Minimize Energy Use: Switch off the lights and other appliances when they are not in use. Choose Energy Star appliances and ensure that the thermostat of the air conditioning system is not set very low.

Reduce Water Waste: Plug the sinks, bathe in less time, and water the lawns and gardens in the later part of the day.

Support Sustainable Businesses: Some of the things that you should consider are finding companies that promote environmental conservation such as the use of recycled materials or water-efficient facilities. The decisions you make in your life can impact the world in one way or the other.

It is a privilege and indeed a pleasure to be living in the UAE. Learning from the climate and being sensible, one can maintain good health, and comfort, and have fun in this lively nation. Remember, sometimes even the slightest changes can help you and the environment a lot.
