It's summer! 

Beat the heat with these useful tips

Utilize a sunshade in your car;

Always carry around and use sunscreen;

Use hat or an umbrella when going outside during the day;

Wear loose-fitting clothes;

If possible, avoid physical work outside in the middle of the day. But if you must do physical work (i.e. yard work, etc.), get under a shade and rest from time to time. Try to start your outside work near sunrise and sunset;

TREAT YOURSELF. Get some ice cream, maybe share an Eegee with a friend;

Drink LOTS of water! Hydration is key.
