HEALTHY SUMMER HABITS
Maintaining your health during summer has to become a habit. The more you do it, the easier it will become and the more you’ll enjoy it. Here are a few tips for creating healthy summer habits that can fit into your daily routine.
Stay hydrated by drinking water first thing in the morning. Keep a cute insulated water bottle near at all times. You’re more likely to drink water if it is in your eyesight and arm’s reach.
Go outside. Take evening walks, morning bike rides, or midday swims. Trips to the zoo, aquarium, park, or splash pad are perfect for the kids. You’ll be amazed at how much better you’ll feel when the sun hits your skin.
Skip the fast-food lines and opt for fruits and veggies. After a little while in the sun you’d be surprised at how famished you and the kids may feel. Skip the drive-through line and fuel your bodies with fresh fruits and veggies. Salad Station is the perfect place. Wake up your senses and fuel without feeling weighed down at Salad Station.
