Health Tip: Have a Safer Summer

(HealthDay News) -- Summer typically is a whirlwind of long days, summer barbeques, pool parties and camping trips.

With all of that activity, it's important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, the American Cancer Society says.

The society suggests:

  • Get plenty of exercise during the cooler part of the day, such as in the early morning or evening.

  • Drink plenty of water.

  • Wear loose-fitting, lightweight and light-colored clothing.

  • Get the family active by hiking, biking, canoeing or camping.

  • Eat a balanced diet.

  • Follow safe food-handling practices. Pack foods that could spoil in an insulated cooler. Throw out food that's been sitting out for more than 2 hours, or 1 hour if the temperature is higher than 90 degrees F.

  • Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen, wear sunglasses to protect your eyes and seek shade when possible.
