5 Summer Wellness Tips

  1. Stay Cool and Hydrated Every Day

It is very important to make sure you drink enough water each day. In the summer, the heat makes it harder to stay hydrated, so you need to drink more water.

You can also add fresh fruit to your water for variety in the summer.

  1. Protect Yourself from the Sun

Make sure to use sunscreen to protect your skin. Sunburn can be painful, and there are many negative effects of too much sun exposure. It is also a good idea to take breaks in the shade if you are outside for extended periods of time. Hats and sunglasses are also great options to use as protection from the sun. Continue reading

Luke’s Goodbye
