The blazing summer heat may make you want to put health and fitness to the back burner but easy health practices will benefit your body and mind. This summer put healthy living on your to do list with these easy tips.

  1. Drink plenty of water. Drinking about two to three cups a day will not only benefit your skin, but is a must if you are exercising or doing any physical activities. Hydration will fuel your body for any and all of your activities this summer. Having a tough time keeping hydrated? Bring a hard plastic container with you everywhere you go.
  2. Limit your exposure to the sun. The sun has harmful UV rays that can damage your skin. Use sunscreen or wear a hat when you decide to go outside for a long period of time. If you happen to forget your skin protection, get rid of the aching and itching in your sunburn by using Aloe Vera gel.
  3. Keep active and exercise. Get your body fit this summer by staying active and participating in outdoor activities. Go on a hike, bike ride, or try swimming to keep your heart, mind, and body sharp.
  4. Take a break! Summer is a great time to forget about your stress. Go on a vacation with your family and friends or relax and sunbathe in your backyard. Hit the beach to rejuvenate your body and motivate yourself for the future.
  5. Try some sun teas to help you relax and cool down. Herbal teas like chamomile, peppermint, or lemongrass have great health benefits that you can take advantage of.
