Have fun in the sun this summer, but remember to protect your skin! According to the Mayo Clinic, getting a sunburn increases your risk for skin damage and skin cancer. Use sunscreen with an SPF 30 or greater and wear a hat and sunglasses when you go outside.
Do your devices control your life? Or are you in control of your devices? These are important questions to consider if you use a phone, computer, tablet and/or social media. A growing body of research is examining our relationship with technology and our digital wellness.
Set guidelines and boundaries for when and how you use technology. Can you delete Facebook from your phone and only check it online? Or maybe do not use social media after 8 pm. This will look different for everyone but challenge yourself to set a goal. You may notice a change in your mental, emotional, and social wellbeing!
