Temperature Rising

This summer is promising to be a hot one! Check out these tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for staying healthy in the heat.

  • Limit outdoor activity, especially midday when the sun is hottest. If you participate on a sports team, schedule workouts and practices earlier or later in the day when the temperatures tend to be cooler.
  • Wear and reapply sunscreen as indicated on the package.
  • Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing.
  • Pace activity. Start activities slow and pick up the pace gradually.
  • Drink more water than usual and don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink more. Muscle cramping may be an early sign of heat-related illness.
  • Limit alcohol consumption when outdoors. Alcohol promotes dehydration and impacts your body’s ability to regulate its own temperature, which increases your risk of heat-related illness.
  • Seek medical care immediately if you or a friend are experiencing symptoms of heat-related illness.
