Preparing For the Hot Weather

During your program you’ll be spending time outdoors; shooting, traveling to classes or going to events. Here’s some great tips from University Programs to deal with a NYC summer:

Drink WATER: Stay hydrated throughout the day. Bring a water bottle with you to both class and events. You’ll be happy to have some H2O no matter where you go!

Wear sunscreen and sunglasses: Don’t be fooled. Just because you’re spending your summer in the city and not the beach doesn’t mean you won’t get burned by the sun. If you expect to walk around the city on a sunny day, make sure to put some sunscreen on your face, arms, and legs. Risking a day in the sun without sunscreen may result in a lobster-red sunburn–don’t let this happen to you!

Wear light and light-colored clothes: As we all know, dark colors absorb heat and light colors reflect it. Keep that in mind when getting dressed in the morning.  Also, leave the dense, heavier clothes at home and be sure to wear something that breathes.

Take a break: Feeling the heat?  Don’t rush or push yourself to walk that extra ten blocks. Duck into a store or sit down in the park to rest, cool down, and re-energize before going along on your merry way.
