Tips For a Healthy Summer

At The Campbell County Medical Group Family Medicine Clinic in Gillette, Wyoming, we believe in preventive medicine. That is why we are sharing some tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on how to safely enjoy your summer.

  1. Move More, Sit Less!

Get at least 150 minutes of aerobic physical activity every week


*TIP: Physical activity has immediate benefits for your health: better sleep and reduced anxiety are two.

  1. Wear Sunscreen

Use shade, wide-brimmed hats, clothing that covers, and broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 15 for sun protection.

  1. Use Insect Repellent

Use insect repellent and wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants to prevent mosquito bites and ticks


*TIP: If you use both sunscreen and insect repellent, apply sunscreen first. After you come indoors, check clothing, body, and pets for ticks.

  1. Keep Cool in Extreme Heat

Extreme heat can be dangerous for everyone, but it may be especially dangerous for people with chronic medical conditions.

Stay cool. Stay hydrated. Stay informed.

  1. Eat A Healthy Diet

Delicious fruits and veggies make any summer meal healthier

  1. Rethink Your Drink

Drink fluoridated water instead of sugary or alcoholic drinks to reduce calories and stay safe.

  1. Don’t Use Tobacco

You can quit tobacco today! Find free quitting support from the CDC here.
