Altenhof advised, "Use your common sense if you experience confusion, irrational behavior, a lack of sweating (usually); hot, dry skin, or abnormally high body temperature, find a way to cool off and seek medical attention." As July 11 is Cheer Up the Lonely Day, Bailey suggested "It's easy to do...just spend some time with them."
