With work slowing to a crawl and school closed up until next year, summer just begs to be taken slow and lazy. However, don’t get caught up in unhealthy habits. Now is the best time to take advantage of the long days and warm nights.
No matter where you live, there are great opportunities for exploring nature and reveling in some fantastic views of pristine wildlife. Plus, with the extended sunlight hours, you don’t have to get up early to make sure you get out before night sets in. If national parks are too far away, hike through your neighborhood and explore the area.
Nothing says summer more than the beach. From the ocean to local rivers, anywhere there’s water, there is going to be fun in the sun. Apart from relaxing in the shade, make sure to get up and walk around or go for a dip. Physical activity doesn’t have to be strenuous, but it does the body good to move it around.
Summer is the best time to tackle growing your own food. Including watermelons, tomatoes and various greens, nothing is more satisfying than gardening. You not only get a great amount of time outside, you also get a good amount of physical activity coupled with the benefit of delicious produce of your making that can be harvested throughout the summer and fall.
Arguably the quintessential event of the summer, grilling is the perfect way to bring together family and friends around great food and great times. Take your outdoor cookout a step further by making it healthy. Grill up lean meats and veggies. Ditch the sodas for water. Embrace fruits instead of pies for dessert.
Summer is the best time to enjoy physical activity, and to truly get the most out of it, you need your body running on healthy, clean food. Don’t slack by turning to heavily processed foods. Those will only limit the sheer amount of fun you could have this season.
