Let’s talk about how to make the most of your summer days, and stay healthy too!

Stay Cool

Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated in this hot weather! If water isn’t your thing, don’t “sweat it”. Try adding fresh fruit and herbs to your water to make it more interesting.

Be Active

Keep up with your physical activity routine! Some tips to keep up with the health:
⦁ Wear light colored, lightweight, and loose fitting clothing
⦁ Exercise in the morning when it is still cooler outside
⦁ Plan an active vacation for the family (hiking, canoeing, etc.)

Eat Right

Take this time to enjoy meals outdoors with friends and family! Be sure to make sure chilled foods do not spoil because of the warm weather. Some tips to eat right are:
⦁ Take advantage of seasonal produce
⦁ Go to farmers markets
⦁ Eat the colors of the rainbow
⦁ Pack snacks for the pool/beach
