Though we are almost 2/3 through the season of summer, we still have hot, humid weather ahead of us. Staying hydrated and not overdoing activity during the hottest part of the day is important to avoid heat exhaustion.
Some other important tips to stay safe are:
- Wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing
- Protect against sunburn
- Wear a hat and sunglasses
- When sweating profusely, replace electrolytes with Vitamin Water, Gatorade or Pedialyte. (I prefer low sugar options)
- If feeling, dizzy, weak, lightheaded or nausea move to a cool spot and apply cool water or ice packs.
We’ll miss the summer when it’s over, so it’s important to enjoy as much as we can.
