5 Healthy Lifestyle Tips to Keep in Mind This Summer

By Craig Middleton

During the excitement of the summer, it can be difficult to keep track of your health when you're busy having fun. However, it's necessary to take extra precautions during any activities that you may choose to do during the summer in order to stay safe and healthy. If you plan on being out and about during the warm season, take a look at the 5 healthy lifestyle tips listed below to keep in mind this summer.

1. Wear Sunscreen
For those of you who love to go swimming or simply enjoy being in the sun during the summer, you will need to apply sunscreen generously and constantly. Sunscreen will protect your skin from harmful UV rays that could cause burns that range from mild to severe and from skin cancer as well. Apply your sunscreen before going outside and reapply during the times stated on the bottle or whenever you begin to get too wet.

2. Drink Plenty of Water
Although this is something that you should be doing during every season, it is especially easy for someone to become dehydrated during the summer. Symptoms of dehydration include being extremely dizzy, being tired, having a dry mouth, not urinating, and having a headache. In order to avoid dehydration, try to drink at least a couple of glasses of water each hour that you are in the sun. You can also drink flavored water or teas to prevent dehydration if you do not like the taste of water.

3. Wear Sunglasses
UV rays are not only harmful to your skin but to your eyes as well. If you want to protect your eyes from problems such as cataracts or wrinkles, purchase a pair of sunglasses that keep out 99 percent of UV-A and B rays or more. You can find a quality pair of sunglasses that meet these requirements for as little as $40.

4. Stay Active
It may get hot during the summertime but it is still important that you continue to exercise throughout the season. If you can, engage in outdoor activities such as hiking, jogging, biking, or swimming. If the weather is too hot and you can't exercise comfortably outside, choose an inside activity instead. You could do some yoga, use a home workout DVD, or come up with an activity on your own. Whatever you choose to do, it's important that you stay active.

5. Purchase a Pair of Shower Shoes
If you regularly go to the gym or a public pool, consider purchasing shower shoes. Without them, you could contract nail fungus, which can cause your nail to change to a yellow color and become brittle. Fungal infections can sometimes cause pain and an unpleasant smell as well. The fungi that cause fungal infections thrive in moist, warm environments, such as the showers near a pool or at a gym. You can prevent fungal infections from spreading to your nails by wearing shower shoes or flip flops and keeping your nails trimmed. If you already have a fungal infection, take these same precautions to keep the infection from spreading to others.

Summertime will not be the best that it can be if you aren't safe and healthy. If you plan on going places and doing things this summer, use the 5 healthy lifestyle tips listed above to make sure that you are protecting yourself as much as possible. Remember, this list only focuses on a few aspects of your health and is not extensive. For more information about remaining healthy during the summer, conduct further research online.
