To prevent heat-related illness, drink plenty of water and choose a cool workout location. Read about more summer safety tips.

2: Swimmer’s Ear Isn’t Just a Kids’ Condition: Most of us think of ear infections as a common childhood condition. Yet, in the summer, many adults develop painful symptoms caused by otitis externa, an infection of the outer ear canal. Commonly called “swimmer’s ear,” this condition often occurs while swimming. If it is not promptly treated, this condition can lead to pain, discharge and decreased hearing. If you are experiencing any symptoms of swimmer’s ear, call your doctor immediately.

3. Work More Fish into Your Diet: Fatty fish, such as salmon, trout, herring and mackerel, are high in protein, vitamins and minerals. They are also loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, which can help lower the risk of heart disease and support healthy brain development in children and adolescents. Canned and frozen fish can provide quick, healthy meals that offer a nutritional benefit exceeding other typical staples like chicken breasts and ground turkey. Learn more about healthy nutrition.
