Summer 2018 Health Tips
are eight easy ways to remain healthy and fit throughout the year…
1. Make Time for Exercise
Suddenly you have a free hour or two from picking the kids
up from school or driving them to soccer practice. Don't just sit on it--- your health
is worth shifting your schedule— leave a little of that free time to hit
the gym or take a walk.
2. Focus Meals Around Fresh, Local Produce
Focus your meals on fresh local produce—such as strawberries, greens, , plums, apples, squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelon and kale—to ensure you’re getting
some essential vitamins and nutrients in those meals.
3. Adjust Workout Attire For the Temperature Change
for the temperatures. Get yourself a light running jacket and
splurge for those new shoes you’ve had your eye on. Staying active and outside is ideal and remember to stay hydrated
4. Make Healthy Comfort Food
cheesy casseroles are great in autumn, but in the warmer months you want something cool and refreshing. Luckily, you can still do that with your health in mind via your crock
pot. Prepare stews and soups using summer's healthy
vegetables. Stay away from temptations to load up on cream and
cheese-based sauces.Think fresh! bountiful supply of fruit and vegetables for the season
5. Reboot That Immune System
yourself from the risk of cold or flu can be tricky at this time of year too
when everyone at the office starts to come down with a
nasty cough. Getting enough sleep is crucial to an efficient immune system. Inadequate sleep and too much stress will only leave you
susceptible to illness if a cold virus is making the rounds.
6. Eat Breakfast Every Day
already know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day—thanks mom. That means, if
you make time to eat a nutritious breakfast (i.e., oatmeal, fruit, and yogurt) your
glucose levels will remain balanced and you’ll be less prone to mid-morning
7. Relish the Beauty of Season
because the weather is warmer and more humid doesn’t mean you should hibernate
inside until fall. The cooler evening
is great for hiking, bike rides, relaxing in the backyard, walking the dog, and playing with the kids. Get out and play! Remember to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
