6 Tips for a Healthy, Happy Summer

6 Tips for a Healthy, Happy Summer

At A-P Medical Group, we want you and your family to enjoy a fun and healthy summer. Here are some tips to get you ready for the upcoming summer season.

Exercise Outdoors

Whether it is going for a run or playing fun games with the family, summer is the perfect opportunity to enjoy outdoor activities.

Wear Sunscreen

Always remember to apply a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 throughout the day, especially when you are spending a great deal of time in the sun. Do not forget to reapply sunscreen after swimming. This can make a big difference in your family health care by preventing unnecessary burns and sun exposure.

Stay Hydrated

Although it is always important to consume plenty of water for your daily health care needs, it is even more important during hot summer days. Remember to stay hydrated throughout the day, especially when participating in outdoor activities. When planning long day trips that will require you and your family to spend a lot of time in the sun, always pack plenty of water.

Use Fenced-In Swimming Pools

Use a fenced-in swimming pool to make sure the pool area is safe, especially when young children are involved. Installing a secure fence around all four sides of the swimming pool can be a great way to prevent any unnecessary harm. Fences should not have any openings large enough for young children to get through, and should be at least four feet tall for maximum protection.

Avoid Swimming Alone

No matter how experienced of a swimmer you may be, avoid the dangers of swimming alone. If possible, find a swimming partner to accompany you on each swim.

Always Wear Safety Devices

When boating or swimming, safety devices should always be worn properly. Make sure that these devices are the correct size for each person, and that straps are tightened and buckled.
