Summer Safety Tips

Don’t wait, Hydrate! 

In order to avoid the danger of heat exhaustion make sure to keep hydrated throughout the day. Start your day off right by drinking a tall glass of water first thing every morning. By the time you feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated. Make sure to drink plenty of water regardless of your level of physical activity. Another way to get your fluids in is to eat plenty of fruits and veggies, which are mostly made up of that H2O goodness.

Heat-related ailments happen when your body is unable to cool itself. 

If you plan on exercising or spending extended period outdoors, try to keep your time to the early mornings and late evenings when it is cooler. Remember to apply sunscreen to protect your skin. Sunburns can actually make you dehydrated more quickly and inhibit your body from cooling down properly. 

Be cool and keep cool this summer!
