The summer months can be a great time to kick back and relax. Warmer weather means backyard BBQs and pool parties. So it’s easy to let your diet and health slip off track. Here are a few ways to make sure you enjoy those sunny summer days and keep your health in focus.
Give your diet a boost
Eating fruits and vegetables in season is a great way to help your health as well as your pocketbook. Fresh fruits and veggies are less expensive in summer months, meaning you can add more to your grocery cart and diet! Fruits, especially berries, are great summer snacks because they add three key health benefits: antioxidants, fiber, and nutrients.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Don’t let the heat of summer leave you feeling dehydrated. Some signs you need more water in your system include: feeling weak, nauseated, dizzy and/or exhausted. If drinking plain water isn’t your style, try adding refreshing lemon, cucumber or our delicious UltraBeets
Mix up your exercise routine
After a long winter trudging along on the treadmill, these warm months are an opportunity to get outside for your run. Mix it up with swimming, biking or even getting a little more adventurous with a hike. Physical activity is crucial for improved and ongoing health, plus it comes with great additional benefits like a lower risk for some diseases while improving our sleep, metabolism and even reducing stress.
Fuel up with berry-flavored Revive Reds to keep going all summer long.
