Summer means looser schedules, impromptu plans, and a relaxed, vacation-mode mindset. This year, enjoy everything the season has to offer and still keep your goals in mind with these 5 tips for maximizing wellness during the summer months!
Plan Ahead. Take some time to really sketch out the things you’d like to accomplish, a skill you’d like to hone, or a goal you’d like to achieve — then write it down as a reminder you can look back on daily, or whenever the need for inspiration or motivation arises.
Snack Smart. As long as we’re talking about forward-thinking…stock yourself up with healthy, portable snacks that help you resist more sugary choices. When you have a busy day planned, it’s always good to keep on-the-go options with a balance of macronutrients that deliver energy and nutrition before you get hangry. think! High Protein Bars contain 10g or more of protein and little-to-no sugar (0-2 grams!) to help give your body what it needs, and the drive to do what you love.
Stay hydrated. This is never more important than in the summer, when high temperatures and activity combine to threaten dehydration. So, visit the beach, go for a walk, or enjoy one of summertime’s many outdoor activities, but make sure you bring along hydrating liquids.
Stay Active. Despite the heat, outdoor activities during the summer provide fun, exercise, and opportunities to soak up some vitamin D. Make sure to always wear sunscreen, drink adequate amounts of water, and rest or go inside and cool off if you’re feeling too warm or fatigued.
Give Grace. You’re bound to experience off-days or the temptation not to stick to your goals during the fun, adventure, and sometimes chaos of a great summer. It’s important to relax, be flexible, and indulge occasionally too! By not restricting yourself and allowing forgiveness, you’re less likely to derail your goals entirely.
