1. Cool down point­wise. Hold your wrists under run­ning cold water for 5–10 sec­onds. This will low­er your body tem­per­a­ture for at least an hour. It is also good to moist­en the back of the neck, knees, legs with cold water.

2. Do not overeat, this leads to an increase in body tem­per­a­ture, so it is bet­ter to eat more often, but in small por­tions. Choose food that is low in calo­ries. Remem­ber: meat warms the body from the inside. Include more fruits and veg­eta­bles, fish in your diet.

3. Pre­pare net­tle tea. If flu­id is retained in your body in the heat, tea, decoc­tion or net­tle soup will help fight this. Net­tle is rich in potas­si­um, cal­ci­um and mag­ne­sium, which help the body get rid of excess flu­id and also improve blood cir­cu­la­tion. Make lemon­ade with lime or lemon with berries. Chill in the refrig­er­a­tor or add ice to a glass.

4. Restore the loss of salts and min­er­als. Inten­sive sweat­ing leads to the loss of salts and min­er­als, impor­tant com­po­nents of our body. Drink chilled min­er­al water, feel free to use sea salt in your diet. Car­ry a bot­tle of water with you or buy a chilled one sev­er­al times a day.

5. Slow down the pace of life. If you are not used to work­ing or exer­cis­ing in the heat, start slow­ly, grad­u­al­ly, build­ing up the load. If you feel dis­com­fort behind the ster­num and dif­fi­cul­ty in breath­ing, stop imme­di­ate­ly, move to a cool, shady place, espe­cial­ly when you feel weak, lethar­gic, dis­ori­en­tat­ed.

6. Choose the right sleep­ing posi­tion. Try not to let your arms and legs touch each oth­er. Soak your feet in a basin of cool water before going to bed. Leave a bowl of water near the bed so that you can repeat this pro­ce­dure on a hot or stuffy night.
