Tips to beat the heat this summer

You don’t have to be a detective to see the sun is packing heat. And that means some potential for danger … unless you get clued in and put in place some protective measures this summer.

There are approximately 330 heat-related deaths each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Add to that the numerous illnesses and injuries – from heat stroke to sunburns – and it can sure change the tone of your summer vacation.

There are steps you can take to minimize the possibility of injuries, including:

  1. Wear light colors and be sure your clothing is loose fitting to keep your body temperature down.
  2. Cover your head if you work outdoors or plan to take in a ball game or another activity in the summer sun. Avoid putting your face or neck in direct sunlight.
  3. Drink more water than at any other time of year. Medical professionals recommend 8 ounces every half hour.

Once you’re aware of the effects of spending time in the sunshine, you can meet the threats out there with a healthy measure of prevention. That means your plans for getting work done outdoors or catching some waves will turn out just fine – as predicted. It’s the best way to keep the mysteries where they belong – in your summer reading material.
