  • Wear light weight and loose clothing
  • Don’t exercise! Sounds shocking coming from New York City doctor’s we know, but on exceptionally hot days it’s a good idea to just skip your daily exercise routine.
  • Try to stay in doors. Like we said before the best way to not getting sick in the sun is to just stay out of it’s way! Besides, air conditioning and fans can be heavenly on a hot day!
  • Rest! If you really must go out in the sun then be sure to rest often in a cool place.
  • NEVER leave anyone in a parked car! The heat outside a car is nothing compared to the heat inside the car so never ever leave a sleeping baby/child/friend in a car on a hot day. That goes for pets too!
