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.
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!
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!
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.
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 from the internet, put down those smart phones and see a world without selfies, hashtags and videos.
Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental and physical health, safety and quality of life.
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…
