Summer is a great time to develop healthy habits and become the best version of yourself. Try the following to blossom this summer.
1. Get Enough Zzz’s
A lack of sleep causes high blood sugar, poor focus, increased appetite, and a weaker immune system. Your body resets during your sleep to get ready to function at its best. Make sure you are getting at least 7 hours of sleep every night.
Drink enough water to stay hydrated, especially when you have been spending time outdoors in the heat. If you struggle with your daily water intake, be creative with it. Add some flavor by dropping a few slices of cucumber or your choice of citrus fruits into your water.
3. Eat More Fiber
Vegetables, fruits, nuts, and grains are rich in fiber, which helps you stay full, so you are less likely to eat mindlessly. Aim to eat at least 25 g of fiber a day.
4. Limit Added Sugars
Inflammation and imbalances in the body, which can be caused by a high blood sugar level, make you cranky and can lead to more serious issues. While natural sugars found in fruits and milk are not harmful, it is usually enough for our daily requirement. Added sugars are what you should be wary of. Look at the labels of the food that you are consuming and aim to limit daily added sugar consumption to 24 grams.
5. Reduce Alcohol Consumption
Too much alcohol can cause a lot of harm to the body. Limit alcohol to one drink a day for women and 2 drinks a day for men.
Do some form of exercise to remain active daily. Moving your body will keep you feeling energized and full of life.
7. Spend Time Outdoors
Enjoy the good weather during the summer by choosing outdoor activities. Being outdoors improves blood pressure and heart rate.
Mental health is directly linked to physical health. Take some time daily to medidate and refocus your thoughts. Reflect on the good things that you have in your life and practice gratitude.
