It's Friday!!! Yay! That means time to unwind from the daily grind of the work week. All over the East and West Coast we have been enduring a heatwave so let us all be weary on keeping safe during this heatwave. Let us remember to keep hydrated with plenty of water to avoid heat exhaustion. If you have air conditioning, be grateful. Keep it at a comfortable temperature and stay indoors when the sun is at its hottest which is between 10 AM and 4 PM. If you are not fortunate to have an air conditioner, find a friend or business that does to stay cool. Please check on the elderly and make sure that they stay hydrated and cool. Sometimes the elderly can be stubborn and that is how most become sick from dehydration so please be mindful and check on them. Also, be careful of your time in the sun if you have to work out in it. Make sure that you have access to plenty of water and if possible, cover your heads with a hat or cap to protect your scalp from sunburn. And please always remember to always wear sunscreen no matter your race because we all burn. Make sure that you cover your skin even the areas that are covered with your clothes and don't forget your ears! Have a great weekend and make sure that you are heatwave safe! Have fun!!
