estimate how much fluid to drink each day
Drink lots of liquids: As you will be losing more fluid than normal, it's important to top up your supplies. The best way to keep yourself hydrated is to drink water, and to sip it, rather than gulp it down.
However, drinking excessive amounts of certain fluids can bring problems of its own. You might think a cold beer is exactly what the doctor ordered, but in fact, alcohol dehydrates the body, and consumption should be kept to a minimum. If you can't face drinking lots of water, non-carbonated soft drinks, such as fruit juice, are a reasonable alternative.

Be sensible about exercise: Do not exercise vigorously during the hottest times of the day. Instead, run, jog or exercise closer to sunrise or sunset. Take things slowly and adapt to the pace of life in the sun. If you feel breathless or your heart is pounding, stop what you are doing and try to cool your body down, for example, by taking a cool shower. Rest if you feel faint or dizzy.

Waiting for entering the new season with "renewed focus and energy"
