3) Hydrate- Make sure that you consume plenty of liquids throughout the day.
4) Be Smart When Outside - Take it easy and try not to over exert your body. Also, spend as much time in the shade as possible.
5) Be alert - Understand the symptoms of heat stroke and dehydration, and recognize when you may be experiencing these conditions.
