Tips For Having A Safe Summer

Summer is one of the best times of the year. The weather is great, people can get outside, and there is plenty of time to be active and enjoy friends because kids are out of school. Teens appreciate the freedom summer provides most of all, and they relish their relaxed curfews and lack of homework. Most people have great memories of their adolescent summers. Unfortunately, the fun increases the risk of accidents. Young children are filled with energy and will dress in less protective clothing, increasing their risk of skinned elbows and knees. Older kids have a tendency to feel invincible, especially during the long hot days of summer when they are not in school. Combine this feeling with less than perfect judgment and there is a good chance something bad could happen. If things get serious and your teen experiences as serious accident, contact an Atlanta personal injury attorney or Atlanta personal injury lawyer. A summer mistake should be fleeting and not ruin anyone‘s life. Hopefully, you will be exposed to only minimal danger. A great way of avoiding injury is to prepare for what you will be doing all summer long.

Sun exposure is not always serious, but too much sun can keep you out of commission for several days or more during the summer. If you are spending your days at the beach or lake, you may not even realize your skin is burning. Splashing in the water keeps your skin feeling cool, and before you know it, you have seriously burned your skin. If you will be out in the sun for any period of time at all, be sure to lather on the sun lotion.

If you are participating in outdoor activities, you should choose a lotion with a high SPF rating. The longer you are exposed to the sun, the more important it is to block the harmful rays. It is also important to put a new layer of lotion on a few times a day. This keeps the protection fresh and effective. The effort will be well worth it when you avoid a painful sunburn that will make having summer fun impossible.

Another thing common summer problem is lack of sleep. Teens have a tendency to stay up all night and enjoy the time with their friends, but this can make them sleepy and careless during the daylight hours. There is no problem with having a different schedule during the summer, and a lot of kids love to sleep in all morning and stay up late. This can be safe, but only if you do not have responsibilities during the day.

If you have taken a summer job, your late nights may need to be limited to non-work days. Imagine how dangerous it would be for a teen supervising little kids at camp if the teen had little sleep the night before. Plan ahead and a safe summer will be a breeze.
