Keep cool this summer!

e-Update from the National Institute on Aging

Summer is here and so is hot weather! Too much time in the heat can cause health problems, especially in older adults. Lower your risk by:
  • Drinking plenty of liquids, such as water or fruit/vegetable juices. Stay away from drinks containing alcohol or caffeine.
  • Keeping your house as cool as possible. Limit your use of the oven. Keep your shades, blinds, or curtains closed during the hottest part of the day.
  • Spending time during mid-day some place that has air conditioning—for example, go to the shopping mall, movies, library, senior center, or a friend’s house.
But, don’t let the heat stop you from exercising! Check out Go4Life for exercises you can do indoors.
