We will always fight an idle lifestyle, but not at any cost.Francella created the Ten o’clock with Francisco Oliveira. There is a mention that every time we move we produce heat, which must be dissipated, and that our bodies are constantly maintained at 36°C. “If the air around us is at least five degrees cooler, we can easily lose heat. But if this temperature approaches or does not exceed us, we are gaining heat.”he commented.
He also emphasized fluid intake: “If you do physical activity in a hot environment, the better. If I’m out, I’ll have to get my water back every fifteen minutes even if I’m not thirsty because when I’m thirsty, I’ve already lost 1% of my body water.”. At this point, he recommended offering water to both children and the elderly because they “don’t see the heat like adults.”
The floor and walls radiate heat. It’s good to be active, but you have to take care of yourself.”Highlight the intensity of the exercises. He added that it is necessary to take into account the hours and areas in which it is carried out, the methods of recovering water, and providing it with light clothing that refracts heat and sunlight.
The doctor said, “Going out for a run with a lot of sun is unhealthy, these people are trying to do activities with the idea of doing better. These people can organize these tips, but there are others who can’t.”

This does not mean that this habit will be lost, but we will be careful at that moment.”Francella pointed out.
Finally, he recommended conducting clinical and cardiac observational studies in the case of daily activity. And get ready, in case of “more intense sporting activity”.
