Heat stroke, heat exhaustion, heat cramps and heat rash are also possible when you become overexerted in the heat.
Follow these safety tips and enjoy a healthy summer. Whether working or playing outside - during extreme heat:

Celebrate Father’s Day Sunday, June 17
The idea of Father's Day was conceived slightly more than a century ago by Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Wash., while she listened to a Mother's Day sermon in 1909. Dodd wanted a special day to honor her father, William Smart, a widowed Civil War veteran who was left to raise his six children on a farm. A day in June was chosen for the first Father's Day celebration. June 17, 1910 was proclaimed by Spokane's mayor because it was the month of Smart's birth. The first presidential proclamation honoring fathers was issued in 1966 when President Lyndon Johnson designated the third Sunday in June as Father's Day. Father's Day has been celebrated annually since 1972 when President Richard Nixon signed the public law that made it permanent

Celebrate National Rose Month!
Give a rose to numerous people, not just to the love of your life. Take a rose to an elderly person who could use a little beauty to brighten his world. Give a rose to someone who has made a difference in your life or your day with his upbeat personality or caring attitude. Surprise a person who works in a care-giving field with an appreciation rose. Buy yourself a bouquet of roses. Give a rose bush if you prefer a longer-lasting gift. There are many more options available today than there used to be. The standard-size rose bush in an almost endless variety of colors is one option, or you might choose to give someone a climbing rose if it is appropriate for her planting location.
National Fishing and Boating Week
June 2 - 10
It's time to celebrate the long-held tradition of fishing, whether you go alone for peace and solitude or take along family members and friends to share the fun.
Some states offer free fishing on other days. To check for events in your state, visit takemefishing.org for their free fishing days pdf.
Unfortunately, far too many of our young people have never enjoyed this experience, especially city kids. Fishing license sales have steadily declined, and the trend seems to be increasing.
Government agencies and the boating and fishing industries are promoting the sport during this NFBW celebration. It offers free fishing and attractions for people of every age.
The main goal is to introduce kids to the sport and hope it becomes a lifetime source of enjoyment for them.
Major sporting companies and even airlines are cooperating by sponsoring fishing derbies and contests. Many event presenters have stocked their lakes and will close them to fishing until NFBW to ensure every participant goes home with a catch.
Some say there are two types of fisherman: those who fish for sport and those who fish for fish.
Dust off your poles or rods and plan to visit a lake, pond or river bank during a free fishing event.
Exercise Means Better Sleep & Less Fatigue
A report in Mental Health and Physical Activity, shows that people who get 150 minutes a week of moderate exercise (or 75 minutes of vigorous exercise) feel less fatigue during the day and sleep better at night.
Researchers studied 3,081 men and women between the ages of 18 and 85 to determine nighttime sleep patterns. Those who met these National Institute of Health exercise guidelines were less likely to report sleepiness during the day, less likely to experience leg cramps while sleeping, and less likely to have difficulty concentrating when tired.
The doctors also concluded that those who were more active during the day fell asleep faster at night.
