Lyme Disease Tick Map
New research from the CDC shows that Lyme disease–spreading ticks have been found in nearly half of U.S. counties, possibly because of climate change. The good news: You no longer have to worry needlessly. With the Lyme Disease Tick Map, created by the American Lyme Disease Foundation with the Yale School of Public Health and the CDC, you have a guide right in your pocket that helps you identify ticks you might encounter (black-legged ticks carry the bacteria that cause the disease).

Sometimes your body may need more water, especially on hot days or when you're more active.

Ultraviolet~UV Index
Only about 30 percent of American women regularly use sunscreen on both their face and other exposed skin, according to a recent report from the CDC. Consider downloading this mini sun-care manual, which clearly displays the UV index in your area using vibrant colors: Blues and greens mean that the average person should use modest sun protection (sunglasses and SPF 30+), while reds and purples signal a dangerously high index.

Sophisticated wellness apps are turning our phones into portable health advisers—just the thing for the season when everyone's on the go.
