Be Well

Ok, so we got hit hard this winter with relentless snow and bitter temps. Spring is finally here and I don’t know about you, but I get outside to enjoy it every chance I get – biking, swimming, picnics, you name it. And yes, I can even get behind a push mower if it allows me a little sun and exercise. Here are a few of our favorite reminders, along with some helpful product suggestions to make the season as drama free as possible:

  • If biking or running in traffic, wear reflective clothingImage
  • Exercise in the evening to avoid the hottest times of day
  • Rehydrate frequently
  • Cool off and exercise at the same time by swimming
  • Apply a high-SPF sunscreen frequently
  • Watch out for signs of heat stroke (dizziness, nausea, hot and dry skin, confusion, unconsciousness) – and if you spot it, get the victim out of the sun, seek medical attention, and cool him or her down
  • Wear protective clothing in the woodsImage
  • Relieve itching and rashes with a first aid kit
  • Inform someone of where you are going and when you will be home at all times, and carry your phone
  • Know how to swim and observe public pool posted restrictions
  • Learn CPR
  • Never leave children unattended near water and keep a cell phone with you so you don’t have to leave the area if you need helpImage
  • Program emergency numbers into your phone
  • Stay inside when lawn chemicals are being applied
