Summer Health Tips
- Hydrate. The benefits of hydration are plentiful. Drinking the recommended eight to ten glasses of water a day can help prevent illness, keep your bones and muscles healthy, help you maintain your weight, improve brain function and best of all, fuel your activities throughout the day! This summer, make water an essential part of your day and never leave home without it.
- Eat Fresh. Summer means fresh produce! Visit your local farmers’ market or grocery store and you’ll see healthy fruits and vegetables of every color. Reserve a place on your plate every meal for fresh produce and you’re sure to reap the tasty rewards.
- Transform Activities into Exercise. Warm summer weather means that you can spend a lot of time outdoors being active. Regular exercise has been shown to improve heart health, reduce pain and improve stress. Turn simple activities like going to the zoo or visiting a park into exercise by using the stairs, taking the long route or even adding in some stretches and strengthening exercises along the way!
- Stay Shady. We all love the summer heat, but it is important to stay in the shade whenever possible. Try to limit your time in the direct sunshine between 10am and 4pm, when UV exposure is at its peak. If you are going to be outside, be sure to apply plenty of sunscreen 30 minutes before sun exposure. It is also a good idea to wear a hat and sunglasses whenever possible.

1. Keep Track
Record how much and when you sleep, fatigue levels throughout the day, and any other symptoms. This serves two purposes: It can identify activities that help or hurt the chances of a good night’s rest, and it’s a useful tool for a doctor or therapist, should you decide to see one. Digital programs like Zeo, YawnLog, and a variety of apps can all make snooze-tracking easier. Click Here to read more.....
We all have different goals, values, beliefs, and experiences, but there is one universal thing that binds us all: We just want to be happy. But for the most part, happiness seems more like an existential dream than an attainable reality.
Yet, everything we think, say, and do are linked to our innermost desires to achieve happiness. We get a new job because we think it will make us happy. We buy a new car because we think happiness might exist there. Or we get married, have kids, and maybe travel to some far-off destination because we think it will provide that sense of happiness we're all chasing.
But for some reason, often no matter what we do, happiness is just out of reach. That feeling of utter elation seems more temporary than permanent. It's here one moment, then gone the next. Just when we seem to have attained happiness in one form or another, the feeling is lost into the abyss.
So how is it that some people seem to be happy all the time? Click Here To Read More......
