Get ready for a falls-free summer. The ice and snow of winter are now just a memory, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to let your guard down regarding falls prevention. Here are some healthy habits you can adopt today to help you and your loved ones stay on your feet all summer long.

• Loose clothing is cooler, but be sure baggy items aren’t so loose that they could trip you or catch on nearby objects.

• Wear sunglasses or a hat to reduce glare from the sun while outdoors.

• Stop and give eyeglasses that become tinted in the sun time to transition to clear indoors before moving around.

• Trade sandals and flip-flops for walking shoes that fit well and give you proper support when walking.

• Drink plenty of fluids to prevent dizziness and fainting from dehydration.

• Keep fans and extension cords out of walkways, and pick up any papers or objects that are blown on the floor by fans or open windows right away.

• Keep flashlights near your bed, in the kitchen and next to your favorite chair to make sure you have one handy if the lights go out.

• Don’t walk through water, mud or debris in outdoor walkways.

• Make sure rugs to catch rain and mud are secured to the floor. The STEADY U Ohio initiative wishes you a safe and happy summer. For more tips and resources to #PreventFalls year-round, visit www.steadyu.ohio.gov.

Just a thought: “We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness.” -Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977). Comedic actor, filmmaker, and writer
