Tips for a Healthy Summer

Follow these tips to help prevent chronic disease and have a #HealthySummer


Get at least 150 minutes of aerobic physical activity every week. That's 30 minutes a day five days a week.

Physical activity has immediate benefits for your health: better sleep and reduced anxiety are two.

Long-term Benefits: Regular physical activity provides important health benefits for chronic disease prevention.

Use shade, wide-brimmed hats, clothing that covers, and broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 15 for sun protection.

Use insect repellent and wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants to prevent mosquito bites and ticks.


TIP: If you use both sunscreen and insect repellent, apply sunscreen first. After you come indoors, check clothing, body, and pets for ticks.


3. Keep Cool in Extreme Heat

Extreme heat can be dangerous for everyone, but it may be especially dangerous for people with chronic medical conditions.

Stay cool. Stay hydrated. Stay informed


4. Eat a Healthy Diet














Delicious fruits and veggies make any summer meal healthier.











Drink fluoridated water, limit sugary or alcoholic drinks to reduce calories and stay safe.
