What can be done to combat the weather

With the weather taking a turn for the worse in most parts of the country, there are several ways that citizens can take to combat it.

People can take to wearing light coloured clothes and cover their heads and shoulders with wet cloths when stepping out of the house.

A bottle of water should always be by your side and more usage of vegetables and fruits should take place instead of meat.
