*Fix light, in-season meals for you and your family. Head to your local farmers market. Fresh fruits and vegetables are in abundance this time of year. Take advantage of it.
*Go outside! Don't limit exercise to the indoors. Instead, go for a walk, play at the park with your kids, head to the pool for some swimming and splashing around. The bottom line is to get moving this summer. You'll feel much better and your kids will enjoy the family time.
*Protect your body. Drink plenty of water so you don't get dehydrated and be sure to apply sunscreen. Remember, black women need sunscreen too!
