Be More Considerate

I would like you to imagine the following:

You board the 530 afternoon train ,and your baby is sleeping on your shoulder. All the seats are filled. No one in the the train offers you a seat, so you have to carry your sleeping baby on your shoulder for the 45 minutes ride until you get to your stop.

This is true story. It happens everyday and everywhere. I saw this yesterday while I was coming home from work. The parent was a dad and his 2 year old son. I was standing myself, but I would have liked to give him my seat if I had seat. read more

1. Wear Dark color clothing

Whenever you go out into the sun try to wear dark colored clothes. Dark colors provide more protection than light colors by preventing more UV rays from reaching your skin.

3. Use Sunscreen

The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) advises using sunscreen year round.They further state that even small doses of UV adds up.
