If you live in a tropical country like Singapore, it may probably feel like summer throughout the year. But even so, I bet it doesn’t stop you from getting excited and planning a summer getaway because beaches are just hard to resist. Families and friends start planning out-of-town trips, which usually involves beaches and other outdoor activities because it’s the best time to really enjoy such things. But, even if you’re partying left and right, you shouldn’t forget about your health. Here are some advice from chiropractors that’ll ensure you get a fun and healthy summer!
Aside from making sure you’re drinking enough water, you might as well go on swimming as much as you want. It’s a great way to exercise and avoid suffering from heat stroke. Both drinking water and soaking in it help your body regulate temperature, improve your skin, and promote cardiovascular health.
Choose Fresh And Colorful Food
Make it a rule to include leafy greens and fruits to your every meal. Doing so will help you have more energy, control your weight, improve your mood, and dazzle your taste buds. We all know fried and fatty foods makes us feel sluggish, irritable, and pack on pounds which isn’t exactly helping if you want to have fun. The more colorful your every meal is, the better your health will be.
Absorb Some Vitamin D
You’ll be able to do this more effectively if you spend time outside. Aside from tanning a little, which we all know looks sexy on anyone, sunlight also help fight depression and improve the immune system. Just protect yourself from the harmful UV rays by putting on sunscreen, wide-brimmed hats, and sunglasses.
Exercising during winter sure is a challenge because all you want is to get under the blanket, curl up in a ball, and sleep. While that may sound comforting, you’re actually making your joints stiff, your metabolism going slower, plus it’ll make you feel lethargic. Do your body a favor and get your blood pumping! Sweat it out and you’ll feel better.
This list may be a compilation of things that you need to DO, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take a break. To maximize the effects of all the things mentioned above, you should also allow some time to rest. Sleep, read a good book or enjoy bubble bath a bit longer. Sometimes stress takes place from trying to do everything all at once.
