It’s summer time friends, protect your health

Yes, it’s summer time again. The temperature at 40 + degrees affecting all walks of life, from kids to grown-up children, working professionals to stay at home moms. The sunstroke is the one we all needs to be very cautious during this time. Read on some tips to protect your health from the scorching sun.

Stay away from direct sunlight, avoid sun rays as much as you can. Plan your work well in advance.

Clothing will have an important place during this summer time. Choose the cloths which permit the sweats to evaporate.

Alcohol and flavoured beverages are strictly prohibited. Instead, drink plenty of water, fruit and vegetable juices. This helps to replace the lost fluids.

Avoid spicy and salty foods during summer.

It is good to have frequent cool baths whenever you can.

Don’t ignore if you feel dizziness and fatigue, visit the doctor on time.

Do exercise in a better way, go for swimming and get dual benefits.

In other way, summer brings happiness and joy to everyone. For an example, kids love summer for holidays and working professionals plan their annual vacations. Business will boom in resorts and hill stations thus summer has good effect too. It is the time to buy swim wear, fancy goggles, new cotton cloths and stylish hats.

Well I wouldnt' say summer brings joy to everyone, necessarily.....it's very humid here on the east coast and that makes for a great deal of discomfort and reluctance on my part to leave the house.

It's important to consume beverages with electrolyte on very hot day especially if you're on the gulf course.

Take care.

Except for short bursts of exposure, I generally hide from the really hot weather and stay in the air conditioning. I do like to get a little time in the sun and usually choose to spend a half hour or so late in the day.

Over here, the weather is humid and hot, makes me very lazy and not willing to go out in the hot sun. Wearing very light clothing because I sweat a lot.

Important reminders for summer safety.

Some like it hot
Some like it cooler

Whatever each of us prefer, we can all do or best to make wise health choices.

How about a salad to eat on a warm/hot summers day and plenty of fluid, especially if you are exercising... just water can be very refreshing perhaps with a slice of lemon or lime added? The choice is up to you ...

All the best Jan

I am not a fan of hot and humid weather and stay indoors as much as possible when it's like that. Good advise though for those of you that are outside a lot in the nicer weather.

After living in the Sonoran desert for a decade, I do know that the most important beverage in the extreme temps is WATER!!! That I agree.

Great advice for spending happy summer! I tend to choose flavored beverage over water, but I gotta change that!

Tessa~ Here there be musing said...

Thank you for leaving a comment, on my blog.

Ahhh yes, we must be wise, in Summer.

I'm not one, who ever liked to "bake in the sun." ,-) And my face is still excellent, for my years.

And especially now, when I am "olden" I/we need to do outside things, early. Before the sun can sap our energy.

Gentle hugs,
Tessa

Is it that time already, summertime? I have to admit it's my least favorite season. As I get older, I can't take the heat as much. But I truly appreciate all the seasons, and thank you for the summer suggestions.

Summer is a time of fun and festivities, but you are right, it's also a time to take precautions so you don't jeopardize your health!

SweetMarie said...

This is such an IMPORTANT message!!! A few years ago I found out that I have Dysplastic Nevus and have higher chances for Melanoma. I preach this to every one I know and love now!

Great info for Summer. Even in May --when it's not too hot here---we wear sunscreen when we go to the beach. Otherwise, we'd be sunburned for sure.

Hugs,
Betsy
