We hope everyone has been enjoying their summer! Here are some practical ways to stay healthy and happy this summer.
Take advantage of the fresh fruits and vegetables
As we know, fruits and veggies are good for us in many ways, but they aren't all available year round. There are a lot more natural goodies in season during the summer months, and they are usually much more delicious! So make sure you take advantage of their freshness and enjoy them during these summer months! Besides, who doesn’t love some good watermelon?
There is a certain amount of water each of us need for our bodies to be well hydrated, and in the summer it is especially important to drink lots of water! Being in the sun for a long time can cause us to get exhausted easier, but drinking water can help stay cooled off! Bring a water bottle with you wherever you go, and drink up!
Try to make healthy choices while traveling
Summer is the perfect time for many to travel to camp, visit family and friends, and just simply explore! It is easy to focus on the vacation rather than taking care of yourself and being healthy, but there are ways to avoid this!
- Eat breakfast
- Bring along groceries
- Pack healthy, filling snacks
- Try to get healthier options at restaurants
All of these will help you feel your best while living you best life on vacation!
Protect your skin
It is hard to stay out of the warm sun in the summer, but unfortunately harmful rays can cause damage you won't be able to see for years. Although sometimes it can be a hassle putting it on, wear your sunscreen! You won't regret it. Get sunshine, not sunburns!
Spend time outside!
Summer is the perfect time for fun activities that keep you on the move! Try getting outside more and enjoying the activities you can't in the colder months. Try hiking, swimming, playing sports with friends, anything! Don't just stay inside all summer in the AC!
