Stiles: Happy summer!

Wednesday, June 21, 2017 by The Press in Columns

Summer has officially arrived, as of 12:24 a.m. yesterday, June 21. Since we are entering the hot and humid months, now is a great time to remind yourself to hydrate. Dehydration can happen so quickly, especially if you are exercising outside, playing sports or working in the yard. Carry a water bottle with you, so you can continuously hydrate.

Also, eating more fruits and vegetables helps since they are high in water content. Stay safe!
