4 ways to improve your health and wellness this summer

Now that the very cold winter months have disappeared (we hope), and the warmer weather is here, it is easier to get our bodies back into a health and wellness routine.

Even though you feel like you need to get your body back into shape, it is important to make sure that you start slowly and don’t just jump straight in, as you could do damage to your body. It’s not just exercising which is good for you, but time outside as well.

Take a look at the 4 ways to improve your health and wellness this summer:

1. Decrease your sugar intake:

It was easy to sneak a little more sugar in the cooler months. The easiest way to lose a few kilos and feel better is to limit the amount of sugar you consume. You will not only look better, but may realise that you feel more energetic and awake.

2. Introduce fresh, seasonal foods to you diet:

Eating seasonally can benefit both your health and the community. These fruits and vegetables are often cheaper due to them being in season, which also helps you financially. A great refreshing idea is to freshen up your water intake by adding fresh fruits to it.

3. Try be active for at least 30 minutes every day:

There is no need to join the gym. This can be done outside! Take advantage of the sun. Take the dog for a walk, go for a run along the beachfront or ride around the block with the kids.

4. Spend as much time outdoors as possible:

We know that with the stresses of everyone’s day to day life, you tend to forget about your own piece of mind. It is important in the warmer months to get fresh air and spend your time outdoors- even if it’s just for a cup of tea in the afternoon. It’s a great way to clear your to mind, let your skin breathe and just take a time out- even if it’s spending the time outside while your kids play in the garden.

These are just 4 tips to follow these warmer months, but there are many more ways to be healthier and happier- it just takes a little time and planning but in the end, it will be worth it.
