Summer is a great time to get outdoors, spend time with friends and family and take memorable trips. It is also a great time to pick up some new healthy habits to keep you energized and feeling great all summer. Here are a few tips for a better summer and a better you.
- 1. Take ten. With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it’s always a good idea to take a few minutes for yourself. Summer lends itself to relaxing “you time” activities like a quick nap on a hammock or taking your dog for a stroll in the park.
- Break out the bike. With months of sunny weather right around the corner there’s even more reason to get outside and exercise. If you aren’t a big runner or walker, break out the bike and take a spin around your neighborhood or a nearby park.
- Eat better. If you have been letting your food choices slip a little in the cold weather, then the summer is a great time to catch up with your health. So many fruits are in season during the summer, and lend themselves to delicious, light snacks.
- Set a goal. To celebrate the new season, set a goal for yourself to learn something new or do something different. Achieving a goal is a great way to get to know yourself better while accomplishing something you can be proud of.
- Take a trip. As a lover of travel, I try to take every opportunity to explore a new place. That’s why this summer, I highly suggest taking a trip with friends or on your own to a spot you’ve never been before.
