- Take frequent breaks in a cool and shaded area if you’re outside in the heat.
- Avoid outdoor activities during the hottest part of the day, usually between 10 am and 4 pm.
- Use air conditioning or fans to cool down your home and workplace.
- Take a cool shower or bath to lower your body temperature.
- Eat light, well-balanced meals to maintain your energy levels and avoid overheating.
- If you feel symptoms of heat exhaustion, such as headache, nausea, dizziness, or excessive sweating, move to a cooler place and drink water.
