We all are guilty of practicing certain healthy habits in the summer that we don't normally do during the other seasons. These habits below are definitely worth keeping around:
1 Stocking up on in-season produce.
Many fruits and veggies are in their peak season in the summer. Thankfully, every season has their array of fruits. Keeping up with seasonal produce will ensure that you are eating quality fruits and veggies and also staying away from junk food.
2 Moving more during the day.
Summer days can leave you feeling guilty when you are cooped up inside working all day. Get up more during you work day and take a quick walk outside. Invest in a stand up desk to give your body a rest from sitting.
3 Sticking with sunscreen.
Yes, the sun's rays are strongest during the summer months, but your skin is still exposed after the summer. Sun rays last all year long, wearing moisturizer with SPF in it will ensure to keep your skin bright and young in the future.
4 Wearing sunglasses.
Without protecting your eyes, you put yourself at risk for cataracts, macular degeneration and eyelid cancer, Redbook reported.
5 Staying hydrated.
We all are on our best hydration behavior in the summer, but what about when summer is done? Staying hydrated all year is important for your wellbeing. Staying hydrated keeps you running at your best.
6 Protect against mosquitoes.
Mosquito-related conditions like the West Nile and Zika viruses are serious in the summer. Protecting yourself against bug bites with bug sprays or even natural techniques like covering up, will prevent them from occurring. Fall is a popular time for bugs to be out because of warm weather, so remembering to protect yourself is crucial.
7 Try a water workout.
Taking advantage of the indoor pool at your local gym is a great way to relive summertime. Thirty minutes of light to moderate lap swimming can burn over 230 calories, according to My Fitness Pal. Less experienced swimmers can try water aerobics classes or even Aqua Zumba to really turn up the heat.
8 Stay safe at the salon.
Those strappy summer sandals just wouldn't have looked right without the perfect pedicure. But if you like the polished look, bring your own tools so you know they are safe and sanitary.
