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.
