  • Drinking plenty of cold drinks, especially when exercising
  • Take cool baths or showers
  • Wear light-coloured, loose clothing
  • Sprinkle water over skin or clothes
  • Avoid the sun between 11am and 3pm
  • Don’t overdo the alcohol
  • Exercise in the coolest parts of the day (early morning or late evening)
