Feelin' the Heat: Exercising Comfortably All Summer Long! - Page 2
3. Dress appropriately in lightweight, light-colored clothes.
4. Wear sunscreen.
This has nothing to do with exercise performance, it's just common sense. The good sweatproof formulas really won't run into your eyes.
5. Listen to your body.
If you start to get uncomfortable, excessively hot, dizzy or have trouble breathing then either slow down or stop completely. The Mayo Clinic has a complete list of the signs, symptoms, and first aid procedures for both heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
6. Get to the swimming pool or beach and have some fun in the water!
Swimming, water aerobics, and aqua jogging are all great forms of exercise, and I for one, am all in favor of any exercise that gets you splashing around in the water.
I hope everyone's summer is off to a great start and that you're staying tolerably cool in all this heat!
