It is summertime in Mississippi, meaning that the low is typically 65 on a good day and the high can be 100+. Ouch! So here is the thing, which soaring tempts and the beautiful blaring sun we all need to take a few important steps to stay healthy.
- STAY HYDRATED! Okay so you might be the person who hates to drink water. Maybe it must be super cold or can only be carbonated. Try putting your water in a fun cup with a straw or an insulated water bottle. It is a mind over matter type of deal. Sometimes we must trick our mind into believing that we are drinking something fun until we can form our healthy habits.
- HEALTHY SNACKING! Chips, pizza, and candy are all fine and dandy if in moderation. Remember to replace some of those snacks with fruits like watermelon and berries because while they are tasty, they can also help keep you hydrated.
- SUNSCREEN! Look golden tans are might be your thing. I know I feel my best with a tan, but the older I get I realize that my health is more important than my tan. Now I use fake tanners to tone down my blindly white legs and wear sunscreen DAILY! Yea, the sun can cause pre-mature aging, but the scary thing is skin cancer. Wear the hat. Apply the sunscreen. Reapply the sunscreen.
- NOURISH YOUR SKIN! Aloe Vera is amazing to help keep sunburns at bay, but it can help to nourish dehydrated skin as well. My personal favorite is Nutri-Hydrating Mist.
