Top 10 Summer Health Tips

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle while having fun in the sun

Summer is finally here and we all look forward to having some much needed rest and relaxation. Whether you are going away on vacation or staying home, it is important to consider the following health tips to ensure a safe and fun summer break.

DRINK WATER

Water helps prevent illness, keeps your bones and muscles healthy, helps maintain your weight and best of all, water fuels your activities throughout the day! Stay hydrated throughout the day, especially if you plan to be out in the sun!

EAT FRESH

Reserve a place on your plate every meal for fresh produce and you’re sure to reap the tasty rewards.

TRANSFORM ACTIVITIES INTO EXERCISE

Activities like going to the zoo or visiting a park can become exercise if you use the stairs, take the long route or add stretches and strengthening exercises along the way!

LIFESTYLE MODIFICATION

The summer is a great time to try a new exercise routine, kick-start a new healthy eating plan and quit smoking.

SEE YOUR DOCTOR

Schedule an appointment for a check-up to make sure pain or injury doesn’t sideline you this summer.

STAY SHADY

Try to limit your time in the direct sunshine between 10am and 4pm, and always wear sunscreen (30+ SPF), a hat and sunglasses.

PLAN A PERSONAL VACATION

A vacation to get away from it all is a must this summer. Take some “you” time this summer to relax and rejuvenate.

DISCONNECT

Disconnect from the internet, put down those smart phones and see a world without selfies, hashtags and videos.

SLEEP WELL

Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental and physical health, safety and quality of life.

STAY COOL

When it’s hot, do what you can to stay cool! Go swimming at your neighborhood pool and visit local air-conditioned attractions. Make sure to wear light colored clothing whenever possible.

Remember to have FUN this summer and enjoy time with your loved ones. Congratulations to the graduating Class of 2018! We are here 24/7 providing Absolute Care & Service Excellence…
