Since Toronto is enjoying hot summer weather, I wrote "Fitness in Summer Heat
" at my DeHaan Fitness and Weight Control
"JP's all sweaty" by Phil Scoville
Nothing is as important to your fitness as your health and continued survival. It makes sense, therefore, to learn how to remain a living, healthy athlete despite heat and humidity.
Writing Tips: Re-Use Images; Use People
I first used the image of "JP's all sweaty" in my Suite 101
article "Do Caffeine and Sugar in Energy Drinks Cause a New Health Crisis?
". In that context, this picture was the
best reason to consume energy drinks: to hydrate and also to restore energy after serious exercise.At first, I had thought of finding an image of a thermometer for this fitness article.
Then I realized it would be better to have a human suffering in the heat. Finally, my memory of this image saved me the work of searching the Web for an appropriate illustration.Writing Tip:
Re-use an image if it is appropriate and useful.Writing Tip
: Use images of people rather than things, if at all appropriate and useful. Preferably, use images that convey a person's strong emotions to connect with your readers.
