Saying to drink water while you are swimming is a bit weird. Yeah, you have a special, very large pocket in your swimsuit? Also, there really isn't a way to slowly come from the heat into a cold building. That doesn't make sense! Just get inside.

I know all these things but always doing them I'm kinda bad at that. I got really sick Tues night. I followed all the advice. It felt cooler (though still humid and fairly hot) the breeze was nice and it was after 9pm. I pushed myself on a hill and by the time I got home my face was nearly purple. I don't sweat much and that's a big problem for me. I don't think I cooled down from my walk properly either. So remember to cool down folks!

As someone who lived in south Florida for the first 50 years of my life, I agree that it's what you get used to! It is humid there almost every day, so it's less noticeable. Now that I live in North Carolina, where it's only humid in the summer, I feel a lot more miserable - so I usually wait until about 9 pm to walk with my dog. And as others have commented, I now love going out when it's cold--40's or colder are great!

I've never heard of a polyester/cotton blend being more comfortable in hot weather than pure cotton. I've found the opposite to be the case. I used to work in extreme weather conditions, and I always wore a bandana. A few times I tried one made of poly/cotton instead of pure cotton and it felt like I had plastic wrapped around my head; cotton was always very comfortable though, and absorbed sweat so it didn't run down in my eyes.

I think this applies better to ONE segment of the population than the other but I like to cut my hair shorter in the summer. It may NOT help a lot but even the sensation of coolness helps.
