- Stay in air conditioning as much as you can. Of course, outdoor activities make this tough, but if you are able to take a short break and take advantage an air conditioned building at a park or a vehicle’s air conditioning, take advantage of it.
- Drink plenty of fluids. Sip on your drink even if you don't consider yourself thirsty, as thirst can be an early indicator of dehydration. If you begin noticing muscle cramps, take a break as it could also be an early sign of dehydration or a different heat-related illness.
- Take precautions when organizing outdoor activities. Any sort of workout or athletic practices should be done earlier or later in the day when the Ravenna temperatures are lower.
- Dress to stay cooler in high temperatures. Light-colored, lightweight and loose-fitting clothing are your best choice.
- Keep your shower or bath a little colder than normal. It can help you cool down a tad quicker so you can get back to basking in your home’s air conditioning.
