5 Tips to Beat the Heat

 

5 Natural Ways to Keep Cool

1. Go for a walk or do yoga on the beach

2. Put a pitcher of water in the fridge, drink as much as you need. Add a few drops of peppermint oil (make sure it's pure) to make it better.

3. Swim in a public pool

4. Put a damp towel in the fridge. Take it out when it's cold and put it around your neck.

5. Wash your face with cold water or take a cold shower.

If you're still hot, turn on the fan.

Men's Health Month


June 9 @ 4-5 pm 

Twitter chat #MensHealthWeek

Plan a “Wear Blue Day” to help spread the knowledge of Men’s Health Month.
  • Choose your day. Choose any day that works for your group of team.
  • Choose a goal amount. Set a goal amount to raise, that way you have something to strive for.
  • Choose BLUE. From blue accessories, to head-to-toe blue work attire, to an excuse to go casual, choose what works best for your group.
  • Pick and choose. Your group can simply wear blue and have your group and anyone else who wants to participate, donate any amount for wearing blue.
  • Sell blue prostate cancer pins to wear in support of the fight against prostate cancer.
  • Plan a mini health fair with information on heart health, prostate cancer, testicular cancer, blood pressure, etc. Contact 202-543-6461 x 101 for brochures or download them at www.menshealthlibrary.com
