Be prepared for summer

The days of summer are finally here, it's hopefully time to be able to shed those coats and boots and replace them with shorts and sandals. Don't forget the importance of still being "covered" while out in the sun. Sunscreen is a must to help protect you from the harmful rays beating down upon you. A good SPF50 or higher sunblock will keep your skin safe and healthy as we enjoy the nice weather. Here are some other tips to help you stay healthy as well.


Give Your Diet a Berry Boost
If you do one thing this summer to improve your diet, have a cup of mixed fresh berries -- blackberries, blueberries, or strawberries -- every day. They'll help you load up on antioxidants, which may help prevent damage to tissues and reduce the risks of age-related illnesses. Blueberries and blackberries are especially antioxidant-rich.
A big bonus: Berries are also tops in fiber, which helps keep cholesterol low and may even help prevent some cancers.


Get Dirty -- and Stress Less
To improve your stress level, plant a small garden, cultivate a flower box, or if space is really limited, plant a few flower pots -- indoors or out.
Just putting your hands in soil is "grounding." And when life feels like you're moving so fast your feet are barely touching the stuff, being mentally grounded can help relieve physical and mental stress.


Floss Daily
You know you need to, now it's time to start: floss every single day. Do it at the beach (in a secluded spot), while reading on your patio, or when watching TV -- and the task will breeze by.
Flossing reduces oral bacteria, which improves overall body health, and if oral bacteria is low, your body has more resources to fight bacteria elsewhere. Floss daily and you're doing better than at least 85% of people.


Get Outside to Exercise
Pick one outdoor activity -- going on a hike, taking a nature walk, playing games such as tag with your kids, cycling, roller blading, or swimming -- to shed that cooped-up feeling of gym workouts.
And remember, the family that plays together not only gets fit together -- it's also a great way to create bonding time.

Be Good to Your Eyes
To protect your vision at work and at play, wear protective eyewear. When outdoors, wear sunglasses that block at least 99% of ultraviolet A and B rays. Sunglasses can help prevent cataracts, as well as wrinklesaround the eyes.
And when playing sports or doing tasks such as mowing the lawn, wear protective eyewear. Ask your eye doctor about the best type; some are sport-specific. (Doheny,8 Summer Steps for Healthy Living, WebMD)

National Blood Pressure Month

May is National High Blood Pressure Education Month.  Hypertension puts you at risk for heart failure, stroke and maybe even Alzheimer’s according to current research. I would like to take this time to discuss lifestyle changes as one treatment option for high blood pressure.  Lifestyle changes may not take away your need for medications so please do not stop any medications without first discussing it with your health care provider. The great thing about lifestyle changes is they do not require a prescription, you can do them anywhere, there are rarely any negative side effects and most of them are free.


Eat Healthy. Eat a variety of foods including fresh fruits and vegetables.  Limit your intake of fat to 30% or less of your daily calories.  Use less salt.  Try other seasonings/spices to add flavor to your foods.  Most importantly watch portion size.  We have become accustomed to large portions and many times we are taking in two and sometimes 3 times what a true portion should be.  Cut down your caffeine.

 

Exercise regularly.  We should strive for 30-60 minutes of aerobic exercise 5 times a week.  Start with exploring your neighborhood on a walk.  Walk briskly. If you are walking fast enough you should not be able to comfortably carry on a conversation.  However, you should not be going so fast that you have trouble breathing.  Find a walking buddy this will help to keep you motivated.


Get plenty of sleep.  Make sure you develop a good bedtime routine and get a quality sleep.  Try to get an average of 8 hours of sleep per night. Your body needs this time to rejuvenate. Drink more water.  You should drink 48-64 ounces of water each day.  This will ensure that your body stays well hydrated.  Being well hydrated keeps all our systems working and filtering to keep our bodies at their best.


Please discuss any major changes in your activity level with your health care provider.  Your health care provider can also help you establish reasonable health and fitness goals for yourself.
