Summer is normally a crazy time of year for many families in Denver. Whether it’s a family reunion, a long-awaited vacation or any number of other fun activities, summer not only brings about busy schedules, but that dreaded Denver heat as well.

- Stay in an air conditioned area as much as you can. Of course, outdoor activities make this difficult, but if you are able to take a short break and take advantage an air conditioned building at a park or a vehicle’s air conditioning, do so.
- Drink plenty of fluids. Sip on your drink even if you don't feel thirsty, as thirst can be an early sign of dehydration. If you begin having muscle cramps, take a breather as it may also be an early indicator of dehydration or a separate heat-related illness.
- Take special considerations when scheduling outdoor activities. Any sort of workout or athletic practices should be held earlier or later in the day when the Denver temperatures are more tolerable.
- Dress to stay cooler in higher temperatures. Light-colored, lightweight and loose-fitting clothing are your best choice.
- Keep your shower or bath a little more cool than typical. It can help you cool down a bit sooner so you can get back to basking in your home’s air conditioning.
