Focus on Nutrition & Safety: 3 Tips for a Healthier Summer, Honolulu, Hawaii

Summertime is about spending time with family and friends while enjoying the sunshine, sand, and surf — which is why nutrition and safety are crucial this time of year. While you are busy focusing on things like perfecting your surfing skills or landscaping your yard, accidents can happen that could jeopardize your long-term health or wellness.

Here are three tips for a healthier summer from the team at IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health in Honolulu, HI.

Get Moving

nutritionThe summer months are a great time to focus on your exercise routine since the weather is warm and the ocean is calm. Take advantage of the great weather by trying to fit extra activities into your day. Walk to the store instead of driving, take your kids to the beach, or try a new sport in your free time. Developing good habits during the summer months might even help you keep them up during winter when the weather isn’t as accommodating.

Enjoy Seasonal Fruits & Vegetables

During the summer, fruit stands and store shelves are packed to the brim with fresh, delicious fruits and vegetables. Supplement your diet with additional fruits and vegetables to improve both your nutrition and hydration.

Focus on Safety

Avoid injuries, sunburns, and bug bites during the summer months by taking safety seriously. Slather on the sunblock, always wear a helmet or a life jacket, and don’t leave the insect repellent at home. By focusing on safety, you can stay healthy, comfortable, and mobile throughout the year.
