What can I do to help keep cool during the summer months and during exercise?
Drinking cold water before, during and after exercise as well as on warm days can help to cool you from the inside out. Spraying yourself with cool water or wearing a cooling vest can also be helpful. You may want to try taking a cool shower or bath for 30 minutes prior to doing activities in the heat. This can help to keep you cool for up to 4 hours. Try and avoid exercising during the hottest part of the day. Outdoor activities should be done in the early morning or early evening.
