If you’ve been to a state park, a wildlife preserve or even just a big city, you may have seen a lot of people walking the walk.
But what about the more common sightseeing options?
Some visitors report they feel as though they are walking through a “darkness.”
But can walking the right path be dangerous?
And is walking a safe way to spend time?
This is a question that could have big ramifications for how much time people spend in the sun, according to research by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
In fact, the answer is likely a bit of both.
While walking is good for keeping the body cool, the researchers note that it can also lead to eye injuries.
If walking in the shade is the norm, it’s likely the same is true of walking on hot, humid days.
So how do you avoid getting sunburn and what are the best ways to keep your body cool while outdoors?
Below are five things you can do to stay cool while walking in a dark environment.
Keep the eyes off the ground Stay away from trees and bushes.
Even if you’ve seen a photo of a sunflower, you won’t have noticed the plant’s distinctive leaf pattern.
If you see a sunbeam, turn your head to look away.
If the sun is behind a tree, don’t look directly at it.
Keep your eyes focused on your surroundings.
A sunny view can help you relax and feel relaxed.
The sun’s rays can also be used as a distraction, as they’re also known as “sunbeams” because they can bounce off surfaces.
They’re also more visible to your peripheral vision.
Avoid walking in direct sunlight When in direct light, walk with the sun’s beam pointing at you.
That’s especially important for older people.
But you don’t need to walk with a bright beam in direct sun, as it can cause eye strain and may make you dizzy.
If a bright sunbeam is too bright to see, consider wearing sunglasses.
Avoid sun-blocking materials, such as hats, scarves and face masks.
It’s also better to walk barefoot in a shady area, which also helps cool your body.
Avoid moving during the day The sun can be especially intense during the daytime.
The average American walks at least 5 minutes longer than at other times of the day, according the American Heart Association.
It also has been suggested that people should avoid activities such as driving, running, jogging or bicycling at night, because the sun can cause severe sunburns.
And if you’re going to be outside for an extended period of time, you’re better off staying in.
The safest way to walk in the dark is to stay in your vehicle.
That way, you don.
And don’t wear a hat.
And avoid wearing long sleeves, which can make it difficult to see in dark conditions.
