Summer is right around the corner and with that comes a lot of fun in the sun. For many this is the time when you can enjoy the beautiful weather sent your way. However, it’s also the time to take a few healthy precautions to stay safe during the summer fun. Check out the  5 Tips for Summer Health  Below! Don’t forget to enter for our chance at a $100 Visa Gift card!

1.Stay Hydrated

And I don’t mean just soda or alcoholic beverages. Staying hydrated with water is essential for your health during the summer months. Even when you don’t think you’re getting dehydrated your body might be dangerously close. Make water fun by adding cucumbers, lemons or berries!

2. Use Sunblock even on Cloudy days

Many people choose to sit out in the sun getting a tan,because this is the only time of year they may be able to. However, the sun is incredibly dangerous and skin cancer is on the rise. So make sure and get a good sunblock to protect your skin. All it takes is one bad sun burn to give you issues later on.

3. Make sure and keep pets and young children secure during heat

Sadly during the summer many people may forget they have their babies or pets with them because of the change of routine. Make sure and get into the habit of always putting something important in the back if you bring one of them with you on a car ride, so as to prevent a tragedy.

4. Get out and Exercise Early!

Noon is the hottest times during the day and going out between then and sun down could pose a risk of heat stroke. So it’s important to try and get our exercise in before mid day. Mornings are usually beautiful during the summer and ideal for getting in that much needed exercise.

5.Enjoy summer fresh foods

During the Summer you have more access to fresher fruits and vegetables. Although technology has made it possible for us to enjoy fruits and vegetables year round, there are some that are at their peak of deliciousness during the summer. Avocados, Cherries, Cucumbers,and lovely lettuces will make eating fresh,delicious food easy to do! Best of all these food are all full antioxidants and all the good stuff your body needs to stay healthy!

UHC wants to make sure you’re healthy and ready to enjoy your summer fun and full of health. They want to keep you healthy and want to Dare you to establish a healthier life style.Every month they’ve established a set of dares to not only  help put you on the path to good health but to get you better educated on your health care plan.  This month they’ve got some fun dares for you! They’ll be talking about  learning to use your medical benefits.When you buy a plan, do you know if you need a Primary Care Physician, a referral, or prior authorization? This is a great tool to see if your insurance is working for you 🙂

You’ll also learn about where to  find healthcare! It’s important to find out where to go when you have an emergency or just need to see a doctor but can’t get in touch with your regular one.
Finally, You’ll get to watch the new UnitedHealthcare brand commercial and share your opinion. I won’t tell you about it here because it will ruin the fun!

Best of all I’ve teamed up with 4 other blogs to bring you more health tips and information to help make your summer healthy and fun! Make sure and check them out below as well as their great giveaways!

    I always drink plenty of water! Last summer I passed out from heat exhaustion and it pretty much came out of nowhere. It was a scary moment for me and convinced me to be extra careful when I’m out in the sun. Making sure I’m hydrated is the best way to prevent something like that from happening again!
