Wellness Wednesday #StayCool

We all love summer months, especially if you live in the Midwest.  It is finally a time we can be outside without worry of bundling up. However, if you love to exercise outdoors, like I do, you need to be very careful of not raising your core temperature too high. Heat stroke is a serious medical condition that can happen very suddenly. Our bodies will try to send you signals to slow down along the way, but it is up to you to listen. The following article will tell you what you can do to prevent heat stroke and what to do if it happens to you. Have fun and get your workouts in, just be careful when the temperatures rise, and listen to your body.
