The temperatures are rising and that can lead to health problems. Who wants to have health issues in the summer when you are supposed to be out having fun in the sun?! I am here to help you stay cool and healthy this summer. I know we are all adults here but sometimes we need a reminder.
1. Water, water and more water!
Drink some freaking water people! I see adults and (kids too) sipping down the sugary sodas and juice drinks. In moderation those are fine, but water is the best, especially during the summer. My family has had too may issues with dehydration so drinking water is something that we regularly preach to my family. It is so important. Do you really want to end up at the ER with an IV sticking out of your arm when you could be hanging out by the pool?
2. Wear sunscreen.
Skin cancer is running too rampantly throughout our lives. Lather up the sunscreen now or you may end up paying for it later. Looking for some detailed sunscreen tips? Check out the information these sunscreen tips.
3. Wear a hat.
Throughout my 33 years of life I have noticed that one of the most neglected parts of a person’s body, during the summer, is their head. I see this with my husband and my father especially. Those without hair on their head, or thinning hair (sorry dad) are the ones most at risk for severe sunburns on their heads, but they are not the only ones. If you are going to be in the sun for a prolonged period of time it is best to wear a hat.
4. Have your air conditioner serviced.
It would be quite the bummer when it is 90+ degrees outside and your A/C decides to take a crap.
5. Wear sunglasses.
Not only is it important to wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from the very dangerous UV rays (which can cause various forms of eye cancer) it is also important to ward of those pesky eye wrinkles from squinting in the sun!
