With hot, muggy and dry weather continuing this week, here are some tips for you to beat the heat!
#1: Drink water - even if you're not thirsty. Thirst is the first sign that you are dehydrated.
#2: Avoid alcohol and caffeine. These will dehydrate you.
#3: Slow down. Keep outdoor activities to a minimum or take it easy when outside in the heat.
#4: Check on fido & kitty. Make sure our pets have cool water and shade.
#5: Beat the heat, check the backseat. Make sure no one is left in the car...it gets way too hot inside!
#6: Know your body. If you start to feel light-headed or nauseous, get out of the sun and into the a/c!
