Keeping Fit and Healthy During the Summer Months

When summer gets to its hottest point, working out can go to the bottom of your to-do list. But there are many ways to help you stay fit without worrying about a heat stroke. This summer, while you focus on your physical health, leave the health of your home to the home cleaning services in Winston Salem, NC offered by The Maids. 

Find New Ways to Stay Fit this Summer 

The summer months mean you can finally enjoy the pool, in your own backyard or at the local community pool. Swimming is an excellent way to exercise because it is safe for your joints, it is a full body workout, and it builds muscle strength and endurance. 

Tending to your garden is a great way to stay fit during the summer, as it involves pushing, pulling, bending, squatting, and more to work your muscles and burn calories. Typically speaking, the hottest part of the day is said to be between noon and 3p.m., so consider completing these tasks before or after that time for your safety, to avoid over exposure to the sun and heat.  

If you are exercising outdoors, remember to stay safe and keep your body hydrated. The best thing that you can do to avoid any potential danger due to the heat would be to try to time your outdoor exercise around the hottest part of the day. If this isn’t a viable option, consider working out inside your home by doing bodyweight exercises such as jumping jacks, pushups, and squats, or yoga.  

The Summer Months Can be Harder on Your Body, so Use These Healthy Tips 

Some excellent foods for a healthy diet are fresh vegetables and fruits, many of which are fresh and more readily available in the summer. Berries, a summertime staple, are a great source of fiber, have numerous vitamins and antioxidants, and are low in calories. During the season, many farms allow you to pick your own fruits and veggies in the fields, which makes for good exercise too. Beat the heat by going early in the morning, and fill your basket because you will need those berries to make a delicious Triple Berry Trifle. 

Don’t forget to protect your skin, eyes, and hair this summer as well. In addition to watching your weight, taking good care of your body is essential to good health. Be sure to apply sunscreen before going outside and wear sunglasses to protect against the sun’s damaging UV rays. The damaging heat, sun rays, and chlorine can wreak havoc on your hair, so wear a hat when you can and minimize the use of styling tools that use heat.
