Your Body Isn’t As Young As It Used To Be, Don’t Risk Not Wearing A Helmet
This may seem like a no-brainer, but you might be surprised how many people don’t bother with safety gear when playing sports. Some people worry that wearing safety gear will make them look awkward or affect their performance. But it’s more than worth it to protect yourself against serious injuries, especially as you get older and your body becomes less resilient.
So, don’t leave behind that helmet while biking, skating, and skiing. It will keep you safe from potentially life-threatening head injuries. Safety guards and pads help prevent scrapes, sprains, and broken bones, while braces prevent joint injuries. Mouth guards are a good choice if you play contact sports like soccer or hockey or any sport with a risk of collisions. Eye protection, including sunglasses, keep your eyes safe from injury.
