Summertime and the livin’ is easy…

More tips to be aware of this summer!

Drink more.  Push those fluids!  Sounds simple, but heat and dehydration result in many a trip to the emergency room.  When it heats up outside we are more susceptible to temperature changes coupled with a reduced ability to conserve water. This combination can be disastrous!

Apply sunscreen liberally!  Stay in shade when possible and wear protective clothing!

Eat a healthy diet!  When it is hot, sometimes the tendency is not to eat.  But healthy eating helps maintain the sense of well being, plus it aids in hydration.

Avoid bug bites!  The best way to avoid complications from insect bites is to not get bitten!  Using insect repellents and wearing long sleeved shirts and pants goes along way in preventing bites.

Be extra careful when driving!  Summer is the season when most car accidents occur for many reasons.  Summer vacations, schools not in sessions and road construction to name just a few.

With a little common sense and some extra TLC, everyone can safely get out and enjoy these summer days ahead.

Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think. Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink. The years go by, as quickly as you wink. Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself…

Those are great summer tips, Ma! I know I'm guilty about not putting sunscreen on when I am outside for an extended period of time. I forget it and then get a bit of a sunburn and then I remember it the next time :)



Great tips about summer living.
