Temperatures are expected to climb into the 90s across New York this week, and the governor’s office offered the following tips to stay cool:

n Slow down on strenuous activity and exercise, especially during the sun’s peak hours from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Exercise in the early morning between 4 and 7 a.m.

n Eat less protein and more fruits and vegetables; protein produces and increases metabolic heat, which can cause water loss. Eat small meals, but eat more often. Avoid salty foods.

n Drink at least two to four glasses of water an hour during extreme heat. Avoid beverages containing alcohol or caffeine.

n If possible, stay out of the sun and stay in air conditioning.

n Wear sunscreen with a high sun protector factor rating (at least SPF 15) and a hat to protect your face and head.
