As summer is finally upon us remember some key safety tips to keep you and yours cool and protected.

1.  Wear sunscreen.  If you are fair, like me, you have likely been told that you should wear it your whole life and you hate it.  However, a nasty sunburn can be debilitating for days. Remember that being near water intensifies the sun’s effects so be extra careful to reapply at the beach or near the pool.

2.  A hat is always helpful.  Whether you are a baseball hat fan or a floppy hat fan these wonderful inventions can protect your face and or neck from the sun.  They can help keep you cooler when out enjoying summer festivities.

3.  Drink plenty of water.  We all know that becoming dehydrated can cause many ailments.  Drink water throughout the day.  I know you might prefer an alcoholic beverage, but save that for when you are out of the sun.

4.  Enjoy the outdoors.  We are all so busy that we forget to go out and enjoy the sun, fun and the nature around us.  Go to the zoo, the beach or just sit in your backyard and enjoy the weather.  Winter will be back soon.
