7 Weird But Totally Normal Things That Happen To Your Body During A Heatwave

In case you haven't heard (i.e. don't have Instagram) there's a mega heatwave in parts of the UK at the moment, with many of us basking in glorious sunshine. I, for one, am making the most of it, refusing to socialise, eat, or exercise anywhere that isn't al fresco. However, that isn't without its side effects, and there are some normal but totally weird things that happen to your body in a heatwave.

It's not specific to the UK and can take hold on holiday, too, so the below may prove to be useful information. I'm a sweaty mess, but apparently that's totally normal when all your waking hours are spent in 29 degree heat. The sunshine is here to stay for the next week, so make the most of it, and don't panic if you've experienced any of the below. Pour the Pimms, head to the park, and make some ice lollies. Just don't forget the SPF. Our poor English bodies aren't used to the sunshine, so are possibly slightly confused, with the below symptoms leaving me initially baffled, but don't panic: it's all good (but, caveat, I'm not a doctor, so if you feel really unwell, head inside ASAP.)
