It is very important to keep your body cool to avoid heat stroke, and another great way to do that is to drink plenty of cold water.  For me, there is no such thing as too much ice in the water I drink, and that brings an almost instant cool-down. Also, try popsicles, ice cream and slushes.  Or even just suck on some ice cubes!

Do everything you can to keep your body from overheating, and note the following symptoms of heat stroke:

  • Strong, rapid pulse
  • Elevated body temperature
  • Excessive thirst
  • Hot, dry skin
  • Dilated pupils
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Headaches
  • Confusion
  • Seizures

Let us know if you end up purchasing any of these cooling gadgets, and tell us how effective they were and what you think of them.
