Tips for a Healthy Summer

Tips for a Healthy Summer

Move More, Sit Less!

Get at least 150 minutes of aerobic physical activity every week.

Wear Sunscreen & Insect Repellent

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.

Eat Healthy Food

Delicious fruits and veggies make any summer meal healthier.

Choose Your Drinks Wisely

Drink water (fluoridated tap or unsweetened
bottled or sparkling) instead of sugary or alcoholic drinks to reduce calories and stay safe.
