1. Go easy on the caffeine: Many of us love the morning boost that a good cup of coffee provides. But when a heat wave is on, don’t overdo it on the caffeine, as that can cause dehydration. Don’t forget that energy drinks usually have a healthy dose as well, so even if you think you need it to get through a tough afternoon, avoid it when you’re trying to beat the heat.
2. Layer on sunscreen: You want to make sure you protect your skin from the sun. Even if you’re properly dressed, it’s impossible not to have some skin exposed. Make sure you apply a sunscreen that has at least SPF 30 and keep layering it on throughout the day.
3. Make Sure You Are Sweating: Sweating is a sign that your body is functioning like it should as it tries to reduce its temperature through evaporation. In fact, if you’re battling heat and you suddenly stop sweating, it’s a warning sign for heatstroke. So, don’t be concerned about sweating on hot days, but get to the shade if you notice it stops.
4. Spray Yourself With Cold Water: Spritz yourself. Keep a spray bottle in the refrigerator, and when the going gets hot, give yourself a good squirt. It's all about thermal regulation. As the water evaporates, it cools you. While elephants wet their ears first by blasting water from their trunks, humans should begin with their wrists to quickly cool down the blood flowing through their veins.
