Getting Summer Ready

Summer is coming around the corner quick, and being prepared to stop hibernating and start getting out there again isn’t always easy…especially since winter has seemed a bit more rough than normal. Luckily we have some tips for you to help get you summer ready and STAY summer ready all season long.

1. Take Your Vitamins

It’s encouraged to take vitamins year round, but some can be even more valuable in the summer due to the benefits correlating with this time of year. One of the best supplements you can take during the summer time is a vitamin A. There have been studies on the link between vitamin A and preventing skin cancer. The evidence in the studies suggest that if vitamin A is taken daily it can reduce the risk of melanoma. It can even help with already damaged skin from sun exposure! Vitamin D does naturally come from the sun, so you may not think you need to take it during the sunniest season of them all, but there are quite a few things to consider before determining that you don’t need it during the summer. There are exceptions depending on where you live, how exposed you are to the sun, if you’re wearing sunscreen, how much sun you are getting daily and what time of the day you’re outside. Most people don’t get the sun exposure they need during peak sun hours, so taking this supplement will boost your vitamin D levels you are missing out on. Vitamin C is chock full of nutrients that are essential for summer. It has been show throughout studies that it actually helps the body react properly to stress that is induced by heat. Vitamin c also helps bring down the risk and chance to develop things like heat rashes and exhaustion goes down.

2. Consume Lots of in Season Fruits and Veggies

There’s no denying that it’s pretty effortless to enjoy fruits and veggies during any season, but when they are in season it means they’ll be in tip-top shape just for you! Not only will their taste be at it’s prime, but they’ll be in their most nutritious state as well. Eating vibrant produce that’s in season during the summer will be a huge help to stay on top of essential nutrients that you’ll need to keep your energy up and have you feeling refreshed. Some suggested fruits to consume during the summer include; apricots, Asian pears, blackberries, blueberries, cherries, figs, grapefruit, jackfruit, key limes, mulberries, peaches, strawberries and watermelon. Some veggies that should be added to your grocery list this summer are; beets, bell peppers, crookneck squash, cucumbers, eggplant, green beans, lima beans, peas and zucchini. You can get a full list of in season summer fruits and vegetables here.

3. Activity

If you are someone who normally is more into short walks to the couch with three huge heaping scoops of ice cream, rather than long strides around a track, no problem! We tend to sometimes scare ourselves with the word exercise, when in reality it can actually be something we find just as pleasurable as sinking into our beds after a long work day. There is no denying that it is hard to transition into being an even somewhat active person again after being cooped up all winter. But you can start getting back in the groove by taking time out of your day for minimal and enjoyable activities. Try to at least get a minimum of 60 minutes of some sort of physical activity. Whether it’s casual biking, going on walks, doing some yoga, or even starting up a garden, you can find ways to get in an hour of activity and exercise while still keeping it entertaining.

4. Plant Indoors

Loads of people love when summertime comes because this means everything is in full bloom, and planting lively and beautiful living organisms is a huge spirit booster. One thing some people don’t always consider is planting more indoors. There is an assumption that it is easier to sustain a plants life with it living outdoors, but that isn’t always true! Some plants are easier to take care of indoors than outside. The main benefit of having houseplants is that they are natural air purifiers. They act like a sponge and remove toxic elements out of the air within your home. NASA had even done a study on this and found that you could prevent yourself from getting sick by having certain plants in your living space. Not only do they help with your physical health, but they can improve your mental health as well! There have been studies that show having indoor plants can reduce stress, drive creativity and can improve your mood all around. If you end up planting fruits and vegetables, this can be a great way to save money! Saving money is always important, but with summer means more things to do, and with more things to do comes spending more money. So in doing this, you’ll be able to not only benefit health wise, but also boost your bank account! Even from an aesthetic point of view, they always add a great pop of color and peppiness to any indoor space.

 

Being summer ready doesn’t always need to be about achieving Kim Kardashian’s body in under a month, but it is always about feeling your best by making simple yet effective changes that will improve your mental and physical being.

Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

I would like to show appreciation to you for rescuing me from this type of challenge. Because of scouting throughout the the web and getting tips which are not pleasant, I believed my entire life was well over. Being alive without the strategies to the problems you’ve sorted out all through the blog post is a serious case, as well as the kind that could have adversely affected my career if I had not come across your site. Your main understanding and kindness in handling almost everything was crucial. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come across such a solution like this. I am able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time so much for the reliable and amazing help. I won’t be reluctant to propose the blog to anyone who should receive support on this problem.
