Hot weather and how to survive it

 

  • Dealing with Dehydration:

 

Drink LOTS of water and juices (note:pop and sodas (cola, sprite,  rootbeer,  etc…) do not count) your body needs the hydration to keep cool.

 

  • Heat Exhaustion & stroke:

 

Acclimate to the weather by spending time outside,  NOT in a climate controlled basement.

 

  • Clothing

 

Try to stick to only wearing band shirts, pants, and socks, if possible try and stick to cotton as it is a summer fiber and breathes very well.

 

  • Rest!

 

Rest is very important because it keeps you body alert and full of the energy it needs to keep you cool.

 

  • Cooling Down

 

After a parade remeber to cool down with a damp cloth on your head (usually supplied by the chaperones) and drink lots of water, just remember that cooling down too quickly can be a bad thing and make you sick.
