I’m 22 and have been going to the gym for some time now. But recently while exercising, I’ve noticed a significant rise in body temperature accompanied by heavy perspiration. This is followed by nausea, dizziness and some weakness. Please advice.

My advice would be to keep a gap of at least four to five hours between your meal and gym time. Stay hydrated. Drinking lemon water regularly will also help you maintain body temperature.
I read an article on a reputed health website that suggested that standing for two hours can help one lose weight. Is this true? Rajal Rajput, Ahmedabad Reading up on health updates is a very good habit, but I recommend that do not believe everything you read. Yes, standing is a good exercise, but it hardly helps you lose weight as opposed to other exercises.
My mother’s friend is a kindergarten teacher who runs after toddlers all day. She has been complaining about severe back and knee pain. Could you please suggest some exercises that can ease or prevent pain?
Priya Singh, Delhi
I suggest she do bhujangasana for the back. For the knees, she should do backward-forward stretching plus apply oil on the knee area and massage it, and also perform pawanmuktasana.
