Kick Back and Keep Cool In Louisiana This Summer
I know I don’t need to tell you, but it’s hot out there. Summer is always fun around Baton Rouge and throughout Louisiana. Between Memorial Day in May and Labor Day in September, there’s always so much to do. But while you’re outside, it’s easy to forget about staying safe and staying cool in the summer heat. What can you do? Well, start by keeping these three important tips in mind. Wear sunscreen. A lot of people skip the sunscreen because they don’t like the way it feels, or they think they won’t get sunburned. But putting on sunscreen at the pool, waterpark, or any time you’re outside is one of the best things you can do to protect your skin and your overall health. Even if you don’t “burn,” you may still be at risk for skin cancer. If you’re going to be in the sun for more than a few minutes, put a little sunscreen on. And if you’re spending some time in the water, be sure to reapply regularly. Stay hydrated. Speaking of water, during the hottest months of the year, you have to drink a lot of it — even if you’re at the water park (don’t drink the pool water). We sweat so much more during July and August, but sometimes it can be hard to tell just how much moisture we’re losing because of the humidity. Keep water on hand at all times and be sure to drink enough of it. Staying hydrated is one of the best ways to stave off heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Go to the water park! Another one of the great things I love about Baton Rouge is our water parks. I love heading out to Blue Bayou Water Park & Dixie Landin’ or Liberty Lagoon to swim, slide, or just lounge by the pool. They’re both great options, and I can’t think of a better
way to cool off than grabbing some ice cream and relaxing by the pool.
including Mary J. Blige and Pharrell Williams. It was a great way to celebrate the Fourth!
In between working and the occasional visit to the water park, we can’t forget about the Fourth of July. By the time you read this, the Fourth of July will have come and gone, and it was a busy day for me. In the past, I’ve gone out to the levee to watch fireworks, but this year, I headed down to New Orleans to take part in the Essence Festival. It’s three days of performances by live bands and speakers, and it’s one of the best annual events in Louisiana. In addition to the speakers and music, the festival also includes a major focus on health and wellness. It’s a great experience and a chance to learn something new. I was particularly excited to see Michelle Obama speak; the former First Lady headlined for the festival’s 25th year running. Of course, I was also excited to see the lineup of musicians,
