Summer Health Tips – Seven Ideas for Healthy Eyes

Our surroundings change around this time of year, especially for those of us who live in seasonal cities

Change is a good thing, and it’s happening all around us today. Cities are changing, the suburbs are changing, technology is changing, businesses are changing, the weather is changing. If that’s not enough, I don’t even have to go to the grocery store to pick up my groceries, I no longer have to hail a cab the old-fashioned way, and Cleveland (yes, Cleveland) is now considered the City of Champions.

Now wait a second, I’m glad Cleveland finally made a blip on the sports radar after fifty some odd years, but I think the Browns need to win something first. I’m definitely not an expert, but it doesn’t take a scientist to figure this out. The Browns need to get that quarterback situation worked out, and possibly a few more skilled position players. And maybe some better coaching. And even a new front office. And that’s just for starters. Maybe a change of scenery is in order. It did kind of work for the Ravens (I’m just saying).

Now, I love Cleveland as much as the next girl (or guy). It truly is one of America’s great cities. But the City of Champions? Probably shouldn’t go there just yet.

Congratulations, nonetheless. Cleveland fans, do bask in your moment of glory. I know I would.

Summer Eye Health Tips:

In veering back on track, our surroundings also change around this time of the year. Especially those of us who live in seasonal cities (Like New York, or Cleveland). If you’re like me and you spend five months (or more) in cold weather, you can’t contain yourself once the temperatures starts to heat up. If nothing else, your after work and/or weekend plans should improve dramatically. This is what we lived for when all hope was almost lost in December through March.

The following seven tips should help you maintain your eye health this summer:

  1. Always Wear Your Sunglasses – During other times of the year, you got away with forgetting them at home, but try to be more cautious in the summer. It’s a good idea to invest in the Right Pair of Sunglasses to give yourself a reason to wear them.
  2. Remember Your Safety Goggles – If you’re doing any kind of yard work, safety goggles will prevent most eye injuries. Whatever they lack in style, they make up for in protection. And it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
  3. Use Eye Protection When Playing Sports – Time flies when you’re having fun, and nothing is more fun than playing sports. But be sure to keep your sunglasses on because it’s best to lose track of time while protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays.
  4. Remove Contacts Before Swimming – If you wear contacts, remember to take them out before heading into the water. That is unless you use water goggles.
  5. Leave Your Screens at Home – Come on, it’s summertime. There’s so much else to do besides check social media. But if you can’t part with your handheld companion, make sure to block Blue Light accordingly.
  6. Dial Up the Fitness – Summer is the perfect time to get in shape, although many folks prepare their beach bods in the colder months. If summertime sneaks up on you and you’ve neglected your six-pack abs, don’t worry because it’s never too late to start a Workout Routine.
  7. Check Out Your Local Farmers Market – Enjoy the fruits of summer (so to speak). The options at the local farmers market (or even in the produce section) will be different than they were a few months ago. Get out there and try something new, especially those Eye Healthy Foods.
