If you have access to an indoor mall with air-conditioning, it would be safer to walk inside. Drinking water will help but exerting in a hot environment carries the risk of hyperthermia. You may try a different way to exercise, e.g. rope jumping, treadmill, or elliptical, in a cool room. Wish you good health!
