Here are four helpful tips for staying a little more cool as the summer temperatures rise. (1) Drink water to keep yourself safe from heat related problems of exhaustion and fatigue. (2) Make sure the water is not too hot and not too cold as either will cause your body to have to work extra hard to process. Optimum temperature is slightly cool or room temperature. (3) Pay attention that your body is actually sweating if you are outside – that’s a good sign that things are working properly. If you find you have stopped sweating that could be a sign of heat exhaustion and it’s time to get in the shade and sip some water. (4) Dress appropriately for the warm weather. A lightweight, airy, brightly colored outfit (to reflect the sun) will keep you feeling more calm and cooler on a hot summer day.
