Limit your time outdoors in accordance with the weather forecast. Stay indoors when it’s the most hot, and plan going out early in the morning or late in the evening. If you really can’t do your workouts while the temperatures are still low, go to the gym or other air-conditioned spaces. If you can’t do either of those, take the stairs in your building and walk them up and down several times just to keep active. If you must go out in the heat make sure you wear lightweight and light-colored clothes, a hat, sunglasses and SPF. Don’t forget that light fitting clothes will keep you cooler as well.
