Throw away 4 habits that are harmful to health when using a fan in the hot season
1. Fan blows directly on body and head
The fan wind blows directly into the body with great speed and close distance, causing sweat to evaporate quickly, the skin temperature decreases, the body’s blood circulation is out of balance, easy to catch the flu. The fan blowing on your head causes you to have a headache, dizziness, and fatigue. Users should place the fan towards the wall or to the ceiling for better air circulation.
2. Use a fan when sleeping
When you sleep, your immune system and internal organs rest. Exposure to fan wind for a long time can easily cause colds, runny nose and sore throat. You should use the fan at an average wind level, about 2 m away from people, rotate in all directions and set a timer to turn off the fan.
3. Use a fan when the body is sweaty
When the body temperature is high, sweating due to exercise or just returning from the street, people should not sit in front of a fan to cool off. Instead, you need to drink a lot of water, dry your body, and stabilize your body temperature to slowly cool down with a fan.
4. Fan speed setting too high
The higher the wind speed, the faster the sweat on the skin evaporates, the clogged pores make the body feel hotter, leading to fatigue. Users should adjust the fan at a moderate speed to create a light breeze, enough for the body to feel comfortable.
Hopefully, the tips on the habit of using an electric fan above will help you protect your health in this hot season!
