Healthy 4th of July

America – it’s about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. You know what’s directly tied to happiness? Your health. Statisticians have revealed that the biggest personal factor in determining happiness is health. Healthy people are about 20% happier than average while unhealthy individuals are about 8.25% more unhappy.

In pursuit of that healthy smile, today we’re here with a patriotic roundup that will move your Independence Day towards the direction of health. See below for links that cheers to the red, white & YOU.

  • About 90% of nonmelanoma skin cancer is associated with exposure to UV radiation from the sun. So while getting some outdoor time is almost an obligatory part of the holiday, putting on sunscreen should be too. Here are the top 7 Consumer Reports’ recommended sunscreens.
  • To stay energized till the fireworks go off, you’ll need to drink up. However, be sure to stay away from caffeinated, sugary, and alcoholic drinks, all of which dehydrate you. H20 is best, but one of these Red, White & Blueberries certainly won’t do any harm.
