It’s hard to believe that just a few short months ago we were chipping away at ice, and spent hours shoveling snow. If anything, the winter that we had has maybe sparked something in all of us; to get out there and take advantage of our summer and warmer weather. As someone who enjoys going for runs, cycling, and just being active outdoors I can certainly attest that the hot weather can bring about its own challenges. I decided that I would share some tips to help with these hot summer days. Though they may seem basic, putting these into effect can make a difference.
- Wear loose-fitting, lightweight clothing
- Protect against sunburn
- Drink plenty of fluids
- Take extra precautions with certain medications
- Take is easy during the hottest parts of the day
I’ve included a link to a short video that describes what happens when you have heat stroke.
