Keep yourself hydrated

It is important to make sure that you drink water. This is may seem like nothing, but it is important to stay hydrated. The body needs water to deal with the heat and especially because you are on the move. Water cools your body. So carry a bottle with you, drink and refill. Freeze the water if possible, so it will remain cold for a certain period of time.

Eat proper meals. Pack some snacks as well, something to munch on, when you are hungry as you move. Being “hungry” does not help. Do not skip meals and tire your body out.
