At CFM health and safety are always a top priority in our cleaning and maintenance services. So in the spirit of health, I’d like to provide you with some more general tips on how to stay healthy during the summer.
Drinking water cannot be emphasized enough! Whenever you feel the sensation of thirst, you’re already too late. Not only does drinking generous amounts of water help your skin, but it severely reduces your chances of heat stroke and exhaustion.
It’s imperative that you always keep your water easily accessible, especially when you’re outside and that summer sun is beating down on your skin. Getting into the habit of constantly drinking water is good for your health year-round as it improves mental focus, helps your digestive process and gives your body ample amounts of energy. So whether you’re spending your summer in busy city streets or along the beach, make sure that water is always within reach.
Protect Your Skin with Sunscreen
Summertime means beach time. If you live close to a beach, you’ve probably already seen the dozens of people lining up along the shore. Some are playing beach sports in the sand, some are playing with their family in the water and some are burning up on the sand. Don’t be part of that last group.
The sun’s rays are more prevalent and more powerful during the summer months and thus can be more harmful. With summer’s longer daylight hours, it serves your best interested to arm yourself with sunscreen.
Applying sunscreen before you go to the beach is a smart idea and can save you from future skin problems, including wrinkles and skin cancer. Go to your local convenient store and find yourself the right sunscreen to prevent unwanted sunburns and embarrassment. Wearing brimmed hats, sunglasses and long-sleeve shirts are also helpful ways to protect your skin.
Establish a Workout routine
Although summertime is the season where you want to show it off, your body should be a year-long priority. Developing a consistent aerobic workout plan will strengthen your heart, increase your energy and maintain a healthy metabolism.
Plus, when you train your body in the summertime, working out in the other seasons won’t be as difficult.
As summertime is the season where nature is fully active, performing aerobic activities outside will help you get in-tune with Mother Nature. Try to keep a consistent schedule by working out 4-5 times a week. Your body will be happy you did.
Keep a Balanced Nutrition
In addition to keeping a consistent workout schedule, it’s important to complement it with a nutritional diet. Summer is a productive season for fruits and vegetables and these foods will contribute to your overall health. Vegetable juices and fresh fruits hydrate your body, preparing your body for fun and engaging summertime activities.
Try to include more nuts, seeds and soy in your diet to get your body accustomed to a wide variety of healthy foods. The healthier you make your diet, the closer you’ll be to creating a strong, well-balanced lifestyle.
