5 Summer Safety Tips For Older Americans

The summer has arrived and is in full force. It’s a beautiful time of the year but also is not without any safety concerns. Be prepared with these five helpful summer safety tips for older Americans.

Keep Hydrated

It’s hot out there. Experts have been predicting nationwide heatwaves that will span the lower 48 states this year. In particular, they are warning about extreme heat indexes that can really drain you faster than you could suspect. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water, especially if you go out. Health specialists advise that you drink at least six to eight glasses of water per day. Don’t forget, your body is comprised of over 60% water. Good advice is to keep a water bottle with you at all times, and to fill it back up once it hits the halfway marker.

Dress For The Heat

The heat demands that you dress for summer wisely. Loose-fitting clothing is the best option here. This helps your body keep cool by allowing hot air to escape. Also, look for colors that can help deflect the sun’s rays. Lighter colors will help you keep cooler when the sun is at its peak. Don’t forget a hat to protect your facial areas, and make sure you are wearing a pair of UVA/UVB certified sunglasses.

Sunscreen

Skin cancer is no laughing matter. Thank goodness for sunscreen. Look for a full spectrum lotion that provides at least 30 SPF protection or better. Opt for waterproof varieties to assure that you do not sweat off the cream. Make sure you set a timer to reapply sunscreen every four hours if you plan on venturing out in the heat.

Know The Right Times To Go Out

Be mindful of the hottest parts of the day. This is when the sun is at its peak, between 10am and 4pm. If you can, try to avoid outdoor activities during this time. But if you must venture out, make sure you dress appropriately and wear sunscreen at all times.

Don’t Forget Any Medications

Some medications can make you more sensitive to the sun’s rays. This includes certain skin creams and orally taken medications. Check with your doctor to make sure that you know if any medications you are taking can make your body or skin more sensitive to sunlight.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
