Ten Tips to Staying Healthy in the Summer Months

  1. Stay hydrated. The recommended water drinking amounts are 2.7 liters for ladies and 3.7 liters for gentlemen.
  2. Protect yourself from overexposure to sunlight by wearing a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen.
  3. Keep up with your exercise program. It is the perfect time to try one of our pool aerobic classes.
  4. Enjoy nature’s bounty. Consuming organic fresh fruits and vegetables in juices and raw vital salads will nourish your body for summertime activities.
  5. Take some special summer time with your family or friends. Hiking, nature walking, camping, or a few days resting at the ocean rekindles our connection to mother earth, and continues to enrich the whole of your life.
  6. Relax and breathe. This is the season to slow the pace a bit and absorb the light that stimulates your hormonal message center. Leave your cell phone at home or take a break from watching TV. Unplug and listen to soothing music or meditate.
  7. Sip on sun teas. Use flowers and leaves (or tea bags) in a clear half gallon glass jar filled with spring water. Hibiscus, peppermint, chamomile, or lemon grass are all good choices. Leave in the sun for two hours or up to a whole day. Add a little orange or lemon peel and enjoy.
  8. Nutritional supplements can support you with a greater amount of physical energy. B-complex supports the central nervous system, while Vitamin C protects your body from stress and chemical pollutants.
  9. Use the summer months to deepen the spiritual awakening that began in the spring. Read, relax, contemplate, and breathe.
  10. Above all, give yourself the time to truly experience nature and take it all in.
