3 Ways to De-Stress this Summer

Warm weather, relaxing vacations and fresh foods make living a healthy lifestyle easy as (peach) pie during the summer months.
Take a vacation.

According to U.S. Centers for Disease Control, insufficient sleep is a public health epidemic that contributes to hazardous driving, mistakes in the workplace and the development of chronic diseases.

During your summer vacation, make it a point to take a short nap daily. You’ll be amazed at the difference a 20-minute nap can make! No vacation this year? Make every afternoon a mini “staycation” with relaxing naptime opportunities.

Try this: Add a hammock to your backyard and enjoy nature while you de-stress.

Soak up some sunshine.

According to a study by the Council for Responsible Nutrition, staying indoors and living a sedentary lifestyle prevent you from being your healthiest self. Fortunately, summer’s higher temperatures and longer days give you the opportunity to play outdoors. Reduce stress by jogging in the morning or playing soccer with the family in the evening. Just be sure to use protective sunscreen such as Relivables® sunscreen SPF 30+ spray.

Try this: Pour orange or lemon flavored Innergize!® into ice cube trays or popsicle molds for a frozen treat on a hot summer day.

Enjoy the fruits of the season.

Nothing’s better than slicing open a juicy watermelon during a hot summer evening. Summer is also the season all varieties of berries, peaches and mangoes are usually harvested. Ripe, seasonal fruits make tastier pies, smoothies and salads. Take advantage of fresh, affordable summer fruits and veggies at your local farmer’s market.

Try this: Carve out a serving of watermelon with an ice cream scoop and sprinkle some sliced berries on it. Add a cherry on top and you’ve got a nutritious fruit “sundae” minus the calorie-laden ice cream.

Take advantage of everything the summer season has to offer and you’ll be on your way to a happier, healthier you!
