Are You Ready For Summer Madison?
Soak up Some Sun
In addition to helping your body produce vitamin D, essential to your immune system and bone health, the sun imparts several other benefits to those who bask in its light. By getting 15-20 minutes of direct sunlight you can increase your Vitamin D levels. Sunlight has also been shown to deter depression, fight cancer, and relieve or heal certain dermatological conditions. If you plan to spend time outside, do not forget to protect yourself from receiving too much sun exposure; sunburns not only dehydrate the body, but can lead to skin cancer. Use sunscreen, clothing, or shade.
Keep the Water Bottle Handy
Stay hydrated and take frequent breaks when working out. It is easier to get dehydrated in warm summer months, especially when exercising or playing sports outside. Drink water before heading outside to prevent dehydration (it is too late after you feel thirsty). In extreme summer heat, one can quickly become dehydrated and at risk of heat stroke. While outdoors, ensure you have plenty of water to stay hydrated. Water also benefits your body by aiding in body temperature regulation, improving muscle function, promoting cardiovascular health, and even cleansing your body of harmful toxins.
Eat healthy and local by visiting a farmers’ market. Produce purchased locally, often costs less and has typically been picked when ripe. As a result, it is bursting with vitamins and nutrients. A diet filled with a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains will energize your body, control your weight, improve your mood, boost your immune system, and dazzle your taste buds. Buy a variety of colors to maximize the range of nutrients for your body. Take advantage of the variety of vegetables and fruits that are available locally during the summer months.
