Watch Your Head, and the Heat!

Whether at work, at home, or otherwise, concussions should never be taken lightly. If an individual bumps his/her head, have them sit down and check them for the signs and symptoms of concussion. If it's determined that they may have a concussion, take them to the hospital to be evaluated by a medical professional.

Make sure to hydrate and take breaks regularly!
