4 ways to be your healthiest this summer

2 min read

Nothing beats taking a summer trip to the beach or swimming at the pool or sharing an ice-cold drink with friends. But between the sun and the heat, you shouldn’t have to take risks with your health to enjoy the summertime. Here are some tips to keep you in top shape this summer!

Stay hydrated. Drinking enough water is important to stay healthy and active during the hot summer days. Carrying a reusable water bottle like aHydro Flask with you is a great reminder to drink your day’s worth of water (recommended daily consumption is 6-10 cups). Not only are you using less plastic water bottles, but you can keep ice-cold water wherever you go!

Stay covered.Avoid getting a painful sunburn and always put on a layer of sunblock whenever you plan on going out. Sun damage is easy to get during the middle of the day when the sun is strong; if you have a lighter complexion, you might burn more easily so be more careful when covering exposed parts of your skin.

It’s always nice to choose a kind of sunscreen that cares for both you and the environment.SurfDurt makes sunscreen that not only protects your skin but also protects coral reefs by not using harmful chemicals found in typical sunscreen. You’re doing yourself and the ocean a favor!

Speaking of sunblock, hit the beach. Take advantage of the great weather to spend some time outdoors with your family and friends. Being active is a fun way to start off a healthy summer! Don’t have time to go to the beach? You can still play sports likeSpikeball in your own backyard or a nearby park. It’s fun to play for all ages, and it’s a great way to stay fit this summertime.

Be vigilant about UTI infections.UTI infections are more of a risk during the summer, even if we don’t think about it. When the weather is warmer, there’s more moisture in the air. It creates the perfect environment for bacteria to grow,increasing your risk for getting a UTI infection during the summer. The humidity, being in the water- like at the beach or swimming pool- and even wearing wetsuits increase your risk of getting an infection. Dehydration is another huge reason why people get UTIs in general, a condition that’s harder to avoid during the summer heat.

There’s no reason not to have fun during the summer- but make sure to protect yourself with some mindful tips!

  1. Stay hydrated. Try to drink at least 8-10 glasses of water and more if you’re more active
  2. Urinate more often, especially if you’re planning outdoor trips, like to the beach. Don’t forget to go to the bathroom, it’s never worth the trouble!
  3. Avoid tight undergarments and swimwear, which can irritate the feminine area. Surf, sweat and swimming pools can all increase your risk.
  4. Avoid using damp towels and wet bathing suits. Change into clean, dry clothes as soon as you’re out of the water
  5. When menstruating, use tampons instead of sanitary pads. Change the tampon every few hours. If you are prone to frequent UTIs, consider taking low dose antibiotics, as instructed by your doctor.

"I suffered from CHRONIC UTIs and have had some pretty serious repercussions from taking mass amounts of antibiotics. I have not had a UTI since I started taking uqora. I drink it after things that are my triggers (sex in particular) and it stops it in it’s tracks!"
