To stay safe while enjoying fun in the sun:

Drink 6 to 8 ounces of water every 15 to 20 minutes. Don’t wait until you feel thirsty.

–Start slowly. It takes about a week to get used to exercising in the heat.

Work out when it’s cooler — morning or evening.

–In the heat of the day, head for the shade, perform your workout inside or hit the pool.

–Wear light-colored, loose-fitting, clothes with “wicking” material.

–Be especially careful on humid days, when your body’s natural air-conditioner — sweat evaporation — doesn’t work nearly as well. If the heat index (combination of temperature and humidity) is especially high, don’t risk exercising outside.

–Avoid hot and heavy meals.
