Ah, summer. Long days, warm weather and tons of fun outdoor activities! To make sure you stay healthy enough to enjoy all the benefits of this season, make sure to try our four summer health tips:
4 Ways to Stay Healthy This Summer
- Drink water. Water keeps you hydrated and helps keep your body functioning as it should. Start your day with a glass of water before breakfast, and keep a water bottle with you all day for sipping. You can even put fresh fruit in your water to add a zip of flavor.
- Don’t skimp on SPF. Wear sunscreen every day to prevent sunburn and long-term issues like skin cancer. If you don’t like the feeling of the traditional cream, you can find powdered minerals that naturally block harmful rays.
- Snack healthy. Rather than reaching for chips or cookies, snack on fresh fruit. It’s refreshing, tasty and healthy. Bonus: it’ll help keep you looking trim during swimsuit season!
- Stay active. Even on hot days, you can find fun activities to be active. Go swimming or run through the sprinklers in the yard. You can also wait until evening to take the dog for a walk, to avoid the heat of the day.
