Posted 11 years ago

Keep your Cool During the Summer and While Working OutEven if it’s summer time, it’s not a reason for you to break away from being fit and healthy. Just because it’s summer, it doesn’t mean you’ll just feel hot all season round. Here are 5 ways to keep you cool:

1.       Be hydrated – Drink plentiful amount of fluids especially water.

2.       Exercise smarter – Try to decrease your exercise’s intensity and do it when the sun isn’t too hot to handle.

3.       Adaptation – Let the body adapt to heat by small daily exposures.

4.       Clothing – Lightweight and breathable fabrics like cotton will facilitate cooling of your body.

5.       Exercise together – Aside from it’s fun, it’s also safer to be with someone during the exercise session.
