As the weather heats up during the summer months, many people like to get outdoors and enjoy their favorite activities. If you’re going to be spending time outside this summer season, here are a few simple health reminders to help you enjoy a fun and healthy summer:
Get Plenty of Rest
The days are longer during the summer, which might make it tempting to stay awake longer. It’s important to keep the same sleep schedule all year long, so try to resist the temptation whenever possible. Keep yourself well-rested so you have the energy to make the most of your summer days.
Spend Time Outdoors
Chances are, you take your workouts indoors during the chilly winter months. While this is a great way to stay active all year long, it’s likely that you start experiencing a bit of cabin fever by the time spring rolls around. Don’t forget to take advantage of the warm summer weather by bringing your workouts outdoors. Choose a few outdoor activities you enjoy and try and do a few each week.
Shield Yourself from the Sun
Getting some sunlight can be good for your health, but too much exposure poses some pretty major health risks. Whenever you venture outdoors, don’t forget to apply sunscreen (and reapply every so often). Your eyes also require protection from the sun’s rays, so be sure to wear sunglasses whenever possible.
Drink Plenty of Water
If you’re spending most of your summer days being active outdoors, you might not always remember to drink enough water. Water keeps our bodies healthy and helps you stay active, so it’s vital that you stay hydrated. Always keep a bottle of water handy so you don’t forget to hydrate.
Eat Fresh Food
Another perk of warm weather is that a lot of fresh produce is in season. Take advantage of this delicious, healthy food by incorporating some fresh fruits and vegetables into every meal. Visit your local farmer’s market and pick up some of your favorites.
The weather can become incredibly hot during the summer months, so it’s important to make sure you keep cool. Consider going for a swim or hitting the (air-conditioned) gym on days when it’s too hot to workout outdoors.
Keep these tips in mind for a safe and fun summer! Make the most of the sunshine and warm weather, and enjoy your favorite outdoor activities.
