We’re honing in on the Memorial Day weekend, and outside temperatures across the country are already kicking up to levels equivalent to mid-summer heat.  If you’re feeling a little overheated in your hometown too, you might go check out a movie to try to keep cool and beat the heat.

Or maybe you could stay home and throw on a classic.  According to History.com, it was this day in 1977 that the first in the series of Star Wars films by George Lucas debuted in movie theaters across the country.  The film ended up winning seven Oscars and grossed hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office, but perhaps most importantly – it won the excitement, hearts and minds of an entire generation of fans.

But whatever you do to stay cool, be sure to get your daily dose of physical activity, too.  And don’t forget to hydrate!
