- Stay in air conditioning as much as you can. Of course, outdoor activities make this hard, but if you are able to take a couple-minute break and utilize an air conditioned building at a park or a vehicle’s air conditioning, do so.
- Drink plenty of fluids. Sip on your drink even if you don't feel thirsty, as thirst can be an early warning of dehydration. If you begin having muscle cramps, take a breather as it could also be an early indicator of dehydration or another heat-related illness.
- Take special considerations when planning outdoor activities. Any sort of workout or athletic practices should be held earlier or later in the day when the Indianapolis temperatures are lower.
- Dress to stay cooler in hot temperatures. Light-colored, lightweight and loose-fitting clothing are your best options.
- Keep your shower or bath a little colder than typical. It can help you cool down a little sooner so you can get back to basking in your home’s air conditioning.
