10 Tips to Stay Healthy in SummerKeep cool and hydrated. Drink water, at least two to four cups (16-32 ounces) at rising, and similar amounts when going out for activities and exercise. Wear water with you in a hard plastic container (more stable polycarbonate than polyethylene that leaks plastic in the water). You can also use a travel water filter. Check your local water stores or www.realgoods.com. Most people need two to three liters of fluid a day, and more in hot weather or sweat and exercise. Read chapter 1 to stay healthy with food or chapter 7 of the Healthy Buyer Guide for further information on water.
While enjoying the sun and the outside, protect yourself from overexposure to sunlight by wearing a hat and using natural sunshades without excessive chemicals. Wear Aloe Vera Gel for overexposure and let an aloe plant grow in your house for any kind of combustion. The cooling and healing gel in the leaves will disturb sunburn. It works well.
