Choose foods that hydrate
During the summer, sleep can be hindered by a bedroom that is too warm. The ideal temperature should be between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit, according to the National Sleep Foundation. By setting your thermostat to a cooler setting at night, you gain the best chance for getting enough rest to have a productive day.

Stretch those hamstrings
While drinking water throughout the day is the best way to stay hydrated, you can also hydrate your body by eating certain foods that happen to be widely available during the summer months. These include cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, radishes, lettuce, berries and watermelon. By adding a salad to your summer meal or swapping out dessert for a slice of melon, you can help replenish the extra water your body needs to function optimally during the warm summer months.

Protect yourself from ticks
Preventing tick bites is your best defense against developing Lyme disease. When going for a hike or walk in a wooded area, avoid high-grass areas and walk in the center of the trail. Use insect repellant, either applied directly to your skin (with at least 20 percent DEET) or with pretreated clothing. When you return indoors, a full body check can help you spot ticks early and prevent bites. Use a hand-held or full-length mirror to view all parts of your body. Don’t forget to examine your hair, scalp, in and around your ears, under your arms, and behind your knees.
