Tips for a Healthy Summer
Get at least 150 minutes of aerobic physical activity every week.
Use shade, wide-brimmed hats, clothing that covers, and broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 15 for sun protection.
Use insect repellent and wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants to prevent mosquito bites and ticks.
Keep Cool in Extreme Heat
Extreme heat can be dangerous for everyone, but it may be especially dangerous for people with chronic medical conditions.
Delicious fruits and veggies make any summer meal healthier.
Drink water (fluoridated tap or unsweetened
bottled or sparkling) instead of sugary or alcoholic drinks to reduce calories and stay safe.
