Summer’s just around the corner, and there are lots of fun and exciting things waiting for you – whether you want to look great on the beach or enjoy outdoor activities, preparation must start NOW, since it won’t happen overnight.  Here are 5 steps to get healthy and have your body ready for the great summer:

  1. DRINK MORE WATER
    Start making it a habit of drinking plenty of water.  Drinking lots of water is important as it boosts your energy, health and appearance.  It is the best natural detoxifier in flushing impurities out of your system, so it is important to hydrate yourself during the warmer months. 
  2. EAT MORE VEGETABLES AND FRUITS
    Eating healthy will not only help you look good, it will keep you feel great; Vitamin A, C and E found in vegetables and fruits all provide you antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties. 
  3. SKIN CARE
    Start protecting your skin by wearing sunscreen everyday from now through the end of the summer.  Choose sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher.  Even on a cloudy your  skin is susceptible to damage from harmful rays causing the look of premature aging.  Don’t forget sunglasses for your eyes as well.
  4. EXERCISE MORE
    Make sure to exercise regularly to get your body ready for summer.   Exercise increases circulation, reduces stress, and helps you sleep better at night.  Walking, stretching, biking…these are all great ways to exercise that are easily added to your daily routine now that we have nicer weather!
  5. GET A MASSAGE
    Last but not the least, visit a Registered Massage Therapist for a massage.  Not only will a massage improve your mental and physical health, but it will also get you ready for physical activities and prevent injuries.  Massage even works on cellulite by tightening your skin, helping to reduce the look of excess fat on your body. With all the great benefits massage therapy provides, it also feels great! So make sure to book an appointment with your massage therapist today and get ready to enjoy your summer!
