Summer is finally upon us, and what perfect way to enjoy it then to bask in the sun. However, take note that there should always be precautionary measures taken each time you enjoy the outdoors. The summer season brings moderate warmth during the early hours, but come noon time, the heat becomes almost unbearable, so you should be careful. Here are just a few ways to take care of your health this summer season:
1) Drink lots of water.
Avoid dehydration. Being in the heat means you’d sweat more. In such case, you should earn back lost fluids during the heat. Drinking the usual 6-8 glasses per day may not even be enough, especially as you may opt to jog in the morning. This also applies during those summer vacations involving the beach and swimming pools, as water displaces from your body if ever you swim for too long. Remember, always have a bottle or tumbler at hand.
2) Use sunscreen.
You may apply them regularly or moderately, depending on how often you’d go outdoors. Allergies would also come into play, as some people do not have the skin tolerance against ointments, so sunscreens may not even be an option. For those who are going to apply sunscreens though, be sure to check the SPF content and consult a specialist to determine which would best work for you.
3) Stay indoors.
This doesn’t limit you at home, of course, as indoors would mean a spot away from the summer heat. A shopping mall, a library, or a museum would also classify as indoors, as long as you aren’t exposed to the sun for a long duration of time. There’s nothing bad about enjoying the outdoors, as you’d need an appropriate amount of Vitamin D for your body, but being out in the heat for too long would definitely be harmful for you.
4) Exercise regularly.
This season is the perfect opportunity for you to lose weight. Think about it, the summer heat would be sufficient enough for you to sweat more; hence, you’d lose more pounds while exercising. You can run, lift weights, swim, the possibilities are endless. Some summer events are being held during this season, such as fun runs and iron man marathons. Feel free to participate in them if you feel that you can handle the consecutive activities provided by each event.
