-Start an activity. Some possibilities include a kickball game, basketball game, volleyball, or a swim in the pool. Whatever you choose, be active!

-Use sunscreen. You will most likely be outside for an extended period of time, so make sure to apply and reapply sunscreen as needed to stay safe from the sun’s UV rays.

-Don’t overeat. This will be difficult to do, especially with the aroma of the burgers and hotdogs cooking on the grill. Fill yourself up with a salad that has a lot of veggies, and limit yourself to one burger or hotdog if you prefer them.
