With summer starting to heat up, here are a few tips to make sure you and your children stay safe and cool throughout the summer!
5 Tips for Surviving the Heat this Summer:
Drink Plenty of water– In hot weather, drink enough to quench your thirst.Â The average adult needs eight, 8-ounce glasses of water a day-more during heat spells.
Dress for the Weather– When outside, wear lightweight clothing made of natural fabrics and a well-ventilated hat.
Stay inside if possible– Do errands or outside chores early or late in the day.
Eat Light– Replace heavy or hot meals with lighter, refreshing foods.
Think Cool!– Take a cool shower or apply a cold compress to your pulse points.Â Or, try spending time indoors at an air conditioned mall or movie theater.
