Beat the Heat

Studying in the air conditioned library helps, but there are other tips to help cope with the hot weather.

1. OK, this one should be obvious. Drink lots of water. Avoid caffeine, alcohol or drinks with a high sugar content.

2. Wear loose light colored clothing. Light colors actually help reflect the heat.

3. Avoid strenuous activity during the sun's peak hours, 11 am to 4 pm.

4. Wear a hat when outside.
