There is no one who had never encountered defeat in his entire life. You may have failed at the career you loved, or you may have been left by your wife because of miscommunication.

There is also defeat every time you try to engage in an exercise routine that seems too hard for you to finish.

But this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try again.

While you are young, you should take care of your body and thankfully, there are tips present below that can help you exercise better especially in summer:

1. Stay hydrated. Even if it isn’t the summer season, when you exercise you lose lots of water in the form of sweat, so make sure that you replace it with water or other hydrating fluids. When it’s summer you have to be extra careful to avoid heat injury. It’s recommended that you drink water before starting your workout and at regular intervals afterwards.

2. Acclimatize yourself. Don’t just start in a routine that you’ve been doing during another season because it might cause health risks. You may find it harder to accomplish the normal exercise you’ve been doing, and it’s not because of you. It’s because of the season. Take it easy for the first two weeks but gradually increase the exercise you do.

3. Use proper protection. When you are exercising outdoors, especially in a hot climate, always have SPF protection. You don’t want to have sunburns from exercising. Furthermore, it will also protect you from skin cancer and other problems related with overexposure to the sun.

4. Wear comfortable clothes. During summer you want to just stroll around in shorts and tank tops, and that is forgivable because of the heat. However, make sure that your rubber shoes are in place—flip flops don’t make for good exercise attire.

5. Choose the time. If you have the luxury of having enough free time, it’s best to exercise in the early morning or in the afternoon. Don’t go out and bake yourself at noon—that’s when the sun is at its highest and the temperature is at its peak. You can have heat stroke if you’re not careful with the time.

After acclimatizing yourself to the summer weather, you can practically do all kinds of exercise that you are already familiar with. However, always keep your safety as a top priority. No one will see how well your body has turned out when you’ve had a health problem because of heat injury.
