Summer is quickly approaching.    On some days in Arizona, it feels like it’s already here.    Sunny days are ahead.

Now is the time to start thinking about sunscreen.    Wearing it all year long is a great idea, but for those who think about it more when they feel the heat, now is the time.

  • Limit Exposure

MayoClinic.org, says,

“Skin cancer — the abnormal growth of skin cells — most often develops on skin exposed to the sun.”

It goes on to say what to do to reduce the risk, by stating,

“You can reduce your risk of skin cancer by limiting or avoiding exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation.”

Sunscreen will help you reduce and avoid that exposure.

  • Choosing a Sunscreen

Choose a sunscreen that has a high SPF.    What is that?    SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. Although there seems to be controversy on this, generally the higher the better.    A sunscreen with less chemicals in it, for many, is a better choice.

SPF measures how well a sunscreen protects against UVB rays (the radiation that causes sunburn and damages skin) and UVA rays (also damages the skin, but deeper).     According to Skincancer.org/prevention/uva-and-uvb,

“UVA, which penetrates the skin more deeply than UVB, has long been known to play a major part in skin aging and wrinkling (photoaging), …”

Have fun in the sun, but be proactive and take steps to protect yourself and your whole family by buying and using a high quality sunscreen.

Back pain makes life difficult.  Back pain can make walking hard and affect thinking.  When you are looking for a back pain rub choose one with:

Camphor – cool to the touch, provides an immediate cooling sensation for sore muscles, helps numb aches and pains
Menthyl Salicylate – speeds blood flow to muscles and helps reduce muscle inflammation and pain
Tea tree oil – from the Melaleuca alternifolia plant, has deep penetrating properties
Menthol – stimulates the skins cold receptors producing a cooling sensation that later turns to a deep heating sensation for relief

Be an educated and informed consumer.  Check the ingredients and compare prices.  You will not be sorry.

The Anxiety and Depression Association of America says:

“Most people feel anxious or depressed at times. Losing a loved one, getting fired from a job, going through a divorce, and other difficult situations can lead a person to feel sad, lonely, scared, nervous, or anxious. These feelings are normal reactions to life’s stressors.
But some people experience these feelings daily or nearly daily for no apparent reason, making it difficult to carry on with normal, everyday functioning. These people may have an anxiety disorder, depression, or both.”

SAUTEED SUNRISE MEDLEY POTATOES

Dinner tonight was what I call Sunrise Medley Potatoes because that’s what the beautiful, colorful, organic potatoes were called I bought from Whole Foods in Tempe this morning.   I sauteed them in olive oil and butter and sprinkled some home grown, fresh rosemary and chives on them when they were almost done.  I seasoned them with garlic powder and salt too.  They were delicious and it was plenty.

I wanted something simple, but colorful.  I saw these as soon as I walked into Whole Foods today and my decision was made for me.

When we really haven’t made the decision to change something in our life, it won’t happen. Whatever it is, health, finances, work, creativity, home business, entrepreneurial endeavor, weight, family situation — make the decision to start it, change it, improve it, move it forward, take it to the next level, … . Then do it.
