5 Wellness Tips For Getting the Most Out of Your Summer

Summer is here! And you know what that means: overpacked schedules of ALL the summer things, mixed in with a few good sunburns, and a lot of realization that time really does fly when you’re having fun.

For most people, summer is thought to be a relaxing time filled with fruity drinks, backyard barbecues and splashing around all the day long. But the reality is, that summer comes and goes in a way we only wish winter could. And if you blink, or don’t take your wellness seriously, you might just miss it!

Here are 5 Wellness Tips For Getting the Most Out of Your Summer!

1. Wear a GOOD Sunscreen.

Don’t just skip over this step with a sarcastic “duh.” Sunscreen seems like one of the more obvious wellness tips, but think about how many times you spend outside in the summer without thinking twice about protecting your skin! Get the most out of your summer by investing in a quality, healthy sunscreen that you like, and make a daily routine of putting it on before you leave the house.

Many sunscreens have toxic ingredients and chemicals in them that actually do more harm than good. So while it’s important to cover up, do your research ahead of time, and make sure you’re investing in something that will protect your skin without causing harm to your body.

Don’t let a blistering sunburn keep you inside this summer. Be proactive, cover-up, and protect yourself from the sun.

2. Drink Water

Summer tends to be a time where eating out with friends, or vacation foods take priority over our usual meal habits. It can be easy to pack a cooler full of soda, or grab an ice cold coke after a day at the beach, but don’t forget the H2O.

Part of protecting your skin is nourishing it from the inside, out. Challenge yourself to drink a full bottle of water before heading for that cold soft drink, and keep track of how much of it you’re putting into your body. A full day in the sun is the ultimate dehydrator, and drinking sugary soft drinks only make things worse. Hydrate yourself first. Your body will thank you.
