Summer Wellness

How do you take advantage of the beautiful summer weather while also continuing or beginning a healthy and fit lifestyle? Check out the tips below to find out! These activities and ideas are great for the whole family.

  1. Choose water workouts and make a splash as you get fit and strong.
  2. Add color, variety, and flavor to your meals with fruits and vegetables fresh from your local farmers market.
  3. Visit museums, the zoo, or an aquarium and walk for hours without realizing it.
  4. When the sidewalks sizzle, get moving indoors with a fun fitness video or DVD.
  5. Start a small garden in your yard or in a community patch to exercise, grow healthy food, and have fun with family and neighbors.
  6. Plan a weekend hike through a park, a family softball game, or an evening walk around your neighborhood.
  7. Fuel your summer with nutrient-rich foods like whole grains, fat-free or low-fat milk and cheese, seafood, lean meats, poultry, eggs, beans, nuts, and seeds.
  8. Drink plenty of water before, during, and after exercise, especially when the temperature soars.
  9. Strengthen your muscles at least twice a week with push-ups, pull-ups, or lifting weights.
  10. Beat the heat with an early morning activity. Go for a walk or bike ride while watching the sun come up.
