Summer Activities for the Healthiest You

| 6/24/2019 8:48:00 AM

Summer is here, which means the time has come for long, lazy days sipping umbrella drinks on the beach, right? Not necessarily, at least if you want to look stunning in a sleek new swimsuit. Fortunately, the warmer months mark the perfect time of year to take better care of your health.

From trying new fruits and veggies fresh in season to pumping your ordinary workouts up outdoors, summer offers a host of ways to care for you. Here are ten ways you can benefit your health and well being this summer while looking and feeling your best.

1. Workout on the Beach

If you normally walk or jog on sidewalks or in parks, taking your workout to the beach can rip the muscles of your thighs and calves while burning major calories. Sand makes your leg muscles work harder, as if you were riding the Zero Runner with the intensity amped all the way up to max resistance. Plus the fresh seaside air smells much better than the sweaty stench of the gym.

2. Or Take It to the Mountaintop

Hiking is excellent cardiovascular exercise, and when it comes to toning your glutes, few workouts compare. Start with easy strolls around local museum grounds and parks and work your way up to more vigorous mountain climbing. Include as much bouldering as you like to super strengthen your hamstrings and quads as well as build upper body strength.

3. Learn Some Self-Sustainability

If the zombie apocalypse hit and you fled civilization, how long could you subsist on food you grow yourself? If you're an experienced gardener, your answer may be, "indefinitely," but if not, why not take the summer to learn how to grow food in case of disaster?
