GREENSBORO, N.C. — You can’t say you’re not getting enough sunshine, and you certainly can’t expect it to last forever.
But the fact is, it doesn’t mean you need to wait until summer to make a change.
So how can you make the most of the summer sun?
Here are 7 tips to help you enjoy a little bit more sunshine: 1.
Know your own limits.
The sun is a harsh light, so the best way to make sure you don’t burn yourself out is to know your limits.
When you are trying to make the biggest difference, keep an eye on how many hours of sun you are getting and what your sun exposure is like.
If you’re getting more than 10 hours a day, it’s time to consider a change of plan.
For most people, this means a shift to a more active lifestyle, such as biking to work or going outside more frequently.
Stay within your comfort zone.
You can get a lot of sun from the same time of year every year, but the longer you’re indoors, the more you’re exposed to it.
If you are still in the house, take a long walk, or go to a gym.
But remember, if you want to maximize your sun protection, you should also do what you normally do during the day: exercise.
Don’t forget to check your email.
You want to make it easy for your family and friends to get to you, and this can help you keep track of your sun-protected work, school and home calendars.4.
Planning ahead for summer sun exposure can be tricky.
While you can start planning for the sun when the sun is least active, it can be even more difficult if the sun isn’t even coming up at night.
Take a break.
While the sun can be an effective energy source during the summer, there are times when you should consider taking a break from the sun.
Take a walk to cool off, or use a cooler to cool down, or take a nap in the shade.
The longer you stay in the sun, the greater the risk of getting sunburn.
Plan your schedule.
Your schedule can also be a great way to plan your sun sessions, as well as your activity schedule.
The more sun you get in the day, the better.
Plan on getting as much as you can, even if it’s only a couple hours a week.
For example, if your goal is to get at least 10 hours of sunshine a day and your sun time is 4:30 a.m., you might decide to have a midday activity that includes going to the gym or going for a run.
Find a time of day that suits you.
While you can’t take a break for the entire day, you can take a few minutes in the afternoon and evenings to take in the sunrise.
If your sun level is at about 90 percent or above, take your breaks until it goes back to normal.
The best thing you can do for your skin is to wear sunscreen and follow the advice on the sun protection label.
Wear sunscreen at least once a week, but never get more than three hours of exposure.
If the sun hits the skin before you get to the sunscreen, you could have a burn.
Always wear long sleeves and long pants.
Don the appropriate sunglasses and keep your skin clean. 9. Don
