In Hot Weather, Write Down Steps Needed to Cool Off in Advance to Avoid Any Lack of Clarity on Overheating: Psychologist

The heat wave blazing across the United States can pose a risk to a person’s physical health. NTD examines what excessive heat means not just for our physical bodies, but for our mental health, and looks at some tips on how to manage any mental stress that comes with it.

According to Dr. Shannan Crawford, a psychologist and the CEO of Crawford Clinics, a good practice for heat-affected persons is to write down, in advance, steps to take if they feel themselves overheating. This can help the person to calmly and rationally take the necessary steps to then cool themselves down physically.
