- Stay in air conditioning as much as you can. Of course, outdoor activities make this tough, but if you are able to take a couple-minute break and take advantage an air conditioned building at a park or a vehicle’s air conditioning, do it.
- Drink plenty of fluids. Sip on your drink even if you don't feel thirsty, as thirst can be an early indicator of dehydration. If you begin to experience muscle cramping, take a breather as it could also be an early warning of dehydration or a different heat-related illness.
- Take precautions when organizing outdoor activities. Any kind of workout or athletic practices should be done earlier or later in the day when the Naples temperatures are cooler.
- Dress to stay cooler in higher temperatures. Light-colored, lightweight and loose-fitting clothing are your best choice.
- Keep your shower or bath a little more cool than usual. It can help you cool down a tad faster so you can get back to basking in your home’s air conditioning.
