The beginning of each season is traditionally marked by new promises to yourself, whether it’s updated sport mode or the beginning of a new educational online course. We decided to depart from the principle of “catch all” and have identified 3 key habits this summer that deserve not only attention but also effort.
Think about the importance of using sunscreen say too often. It would be possible to take a marketing course, only the scientific facts say the opposite. Excessive sun exposure without proper protection damages the epidermal barrier of the skin and immune system. One of the worst effects of sunlight on the skin include rapid aging of the skin, hyperkeratosis, accelerated the appearance of wrinkles and, in the worst scenario, skin cancer.
In order to avoid the negative consequences should reduce the time spent in the sun during the day (especially in summer), half an hour before going outside, apply sunscreen c protective factor of not less than 30 (that is SPF30), not to forget additional protection in the form of Panama, sunglasses and clothing made from natural fibres, which covers most of the body.
To use sunscreen became a habit, try to always keep it in your pocket (or bag) if you have a long walk, and put one of the vials near the front door. So sunscreen will always be in sight.
Reading is one of the best ways to learn about the world around, to know yourself and to understand what is happening. I remember before the summer holidays the school was given a list of literature for summer. The same list can make themselves, given the actual preferences and needs. And frankly, the summer can be a great period to deepen their knowledge in the vital issues.
Every day the world is too much of what may be a harbinger of anxiety, confusion and insecurity, so self-education and enlightenment will surely be the light at the end of the tunnel, which sometimes is not enough: to be a scientific paper about the advances in vaccine development from Covid-19, memoirs of Solomon Nortip or the hundredth time, re-read “the China study”.
Summer – time for picnics, vacations and long walks. Well, under the new conditions of life – respect the distance of half a meter and feel on top. Unfortunately, the pandemic is not conducive to abandonment of disposable tableware and personal care items, but something can be done: start to sort the trash, take water from home in your bottle, try not to use disposable bags and bring your favorite cocktail in your glass where possible. These obvious and well-known rules really matter.
Despite all the difficulties, the coming summer in a pandemic may be the appropriate time for raising eco-consciousness, without which our life will not get better, even when months quarantine will remain in the pages of history books.
