Top 4 Tips on How to Stay Healthy This Summer

Yes, it's that time of year again! I bet you must be thinking about having a wonderful summer and staying healthy. If you are thinking exactly this, then you are reading the right article. You will find some useful tips over here on how to enhance your immunity during the season as well as how to stay fit.

 

I completely understand that you must be craving for a sunbath as winter is approaching its waning end, but you should understand that it can harm your skin and give you sunburn. You must have heard or read about ozone layer around the earth getting thinner gradually. That results in more UV rays penetrating our atmosphere and causing various skin ailments. It is very important to save yourself from these rays, as here in Gold Coast and other coastal parts of Australia, people are quite prone to sunburn.

 

But no need to worry at all. By implementing following methods, you can breeze through the summer.

 

Use Sunscreen

 

You must know that UV rays are harmful during all seasons. So, you must use sunscreens all year round. You should go for a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) according to your complexion and it should also be resistant to both UVA and UVB rays. Sunscreens are easily available these days in various types, like, creams, gels, wipes, sprays as well as sticks. You should put it on at least 30 minutes before you step out in the sun and do remember to take it with you wherever you go. Make sure to reapply it post workout session or after taking bath.

 

Have a sound sleep

 

Try to have proper sleep as it directly affects your health. If you are not able to sleep properly or you feel tired and drained out all day long, you should probably go for a good quality mattress. Do a lot of research before finalizing one as you will be using it for a considerable time. A good mattress must be able to offer even support to your body while you sleep in different positions. Don't finalize a mattress just because it has a fancy or catchy label on it or because of its spring count. Try lying down on different types of king size mattress Brisbane retailers have on offer before making your final choice. While deciding on a mattress, check its firmness or softness carefully and understand which one will be most suitable for you.

 

Stay covered!

 

Do remember to cover yourself well while you spend time outdoors. Always carry your hat, sunglasses, full sleeves t-shirt and a pair of knee-length shorts in your handbag when you are going out. Remember that apart from offering style and a cool look, your sunglasses also protect your eyes from dust and harmful UVA and UVB rays.

 

Drink plenty of fluids

 

Just make sure to hydrate yourself well during summers. You know you sweat a lot in summers and because of this your body loses water. It can lead to dehydration which may cause serious health issues. So, make it a point to always carry a water bottle or a sports drink or even flavoured water, if you like, with you.

 

So, go get yourself summer ready!
