How to stay healthy during the summer
1. Drink plenty of water
Heat and sweat in the summer months can leave your body dehydrated, causing unwanted health outcomes such as fever and chills. Keep yourself well hydrated by drinking at least 2 to 3 liters of water every day.
2. Engage in some Special Summertime Activities.
with your family, kids, and friends who share the enjoyment of outdoors. Plan a fun trip if you’re able and motivated for a day or longer—hiking in the wild, camping, playing at the river, or a few days resting at the ocean. Rekindling your Earth connection has benefits that last beyond this season, continuing to enrich the whole of your life.
3. Nutritional Supplements and Herbs
These can support you with a greater amount of physical energy, enhancing your summer activities. The B-complex vitamins are calming to the nervous system and helpful for cellular energy production, while vitamin C and the other antioxidants protect your body from stress, chemical pollutants, and the biochemical by-products of exercise. Helpful summer herbs are Siberian ginseng as an energy tonic and stress protector, dong quai as a tonic for women, hawthorn berry is good for the heart, and licorice root will help energy balance and digestion.
4. Be Smart About Cold Treat Choices
To satisfy your sweet tooth and not feel guilty about it, look for some healthier
alternatives to the typical calorie-laden summer treats. Buy low-fat versions of fat-free
and sugar-free ice cream or try a sugar-free sorbet, which is a lower-calorie, refreshing
alternative. Experiment with different brands and remember to control your portions!
