Yes, it is hot… And the weather affects our health…physically and mentally.
So, what are we to do about it?
I loved the message Dr. Besser gave on ABC News with Diane Sawyer tonight… ‘put your sheets in the freezer a couple of hours before going to bed…’
This is an example of a ‘good’ message. It is specific. It is doable. It is affordable…we mostly have sheets on our beds. We mostly have refrigerators in our homes and these appliances have freezers.
So, I am doing it. I will let your know tomorrow…did it work? That, of course, is one of the most important parts of a good public health message…
