Exercise / Fitness

Whether it’s a jog on the beach or a bike ride in the mountains, exercising outdoors is one of the great benefits of summer. When the temperatures peak, however, physical activity may be doing you more harm than good. Heat stroke is a medical emergency and a very real danger to anyone exercising in a hot environment. Symptoms include dizziness, shallow breathing and lack of sweat. To protect yourself, drink water regularly, limit your outdoor activities to the morning or evening when it’s coolest and rest often in shady areas.
