There's nothing much you can do
about hot weather except talk about it
(remember Mark Twain's crack? ). But
there are quite a few things you can do
about yourself which, if they won't air
condition you 24 hours a hot day, will
help you to be a little less hot.
First of all, take it as easy as you
can. Relax whenever and wherever pos
sible. Don't worry about either the heat
or the humidity--don't even talk about
itl Get plenty of sleep.
Eat sensibly. Salads and fruit are
O. K. , but they're not enoilgh to keep you
going. You still need proteins, carbo
hydrates and fats for energy and for
strength to get through the uncomfor
table days. Eat an extra hearty break
fast in the cool of the day, go light on
lunch. Cold foods are not cooling (ex
cept psychologically), because it's not
the food but the calories they contain
that raises body temperatures. So
don't pass up hot dishes.
Drink plenty of water--12 to 15
glasses a day—cool but not necessarily
icy; iced drinks actually interfere with
the body's temperature controls. Al
coholic drinks, no matter how cold you
make them, just make you hotter.
Wear light, loose, porous, light-
colored clothing: avoid exertion in the
sun. Be glad if you perspire (or even
sweat), for that's the body's way of re
frigeration through evaporation.
