SUMMER TIP #7 Go Light
Summer’s a great time to skip drinks with hard alcohol and choose a light, chilled alcoholic beverage (unless you are pregnant or should not drink for health or other reasons).
 
A sangria (table wine diluted with juice), a cold beer, or a wine spritzer are all refreshing but light. In moderation — defined as one to two drinks daily — alcohol can protect against heart disease.

SUMMER TIP #6 Take A Vacation!
Improve your heart health: take advantage of summer’s slower schedule by using your vacation time to unwind.
 
Vacations have multiple benefits: They can help lower your blood pressure, heart rate, and stress hormones such as cortisol, which contributes to a widening waist and an increased risk of heart disease.
 
Before you leave, schedule your annual physical for after you return by calling 402 367-3193!

SUMMER TIP #5 Be Good to Your Eyes!
To protect your vision at work and at play, wear protective eyewear. When outdoors, wear sunglasses that block at least 99% of ultraviolet A and B rays. Sunglasses can help prevent cataracts, as well as wrinkles around the eyes.
 
Be Good to Your Eyes or doing tasks such as mowing the lawn, wear protective or sport-specific eyewear.
 
Then, schedule an appointment to come SEE us for your annual physical!

SUMMER TIP #4 Get Outside to Exercise
Pick one outdoor activity — going on a hike, taking a nature walk, playing games such as tag with your kids, cycling, roller blading, or swimming — to shed that cooped-up feeling of gym workouts.
 
And remember, the family that plays together not only gets fit together — it’s also a great way to create bonding time.

SUMMER TIP #3 Floss Daily
You know you need to, now it’s time to start: floss every single day. Do it at the lake (in a secluded spot), while reading on your patio, or when watching TV — and the task will breeze by. Encourage the kids too!
 
Flossing reduces oral bacteria, which improves overall body health, and if oral bacteria is low, your body has more resources to fight bacteria elsewhere. Floss daily and you’re doing better than at least 85% of people.
