4 Ways to Stay Healthy this Summer
Mental health and physical health are largely connected, so by taking care of your body, you're also taking care of your mind. 

Here are five things to remember this summer to help you take care of your body and mind:

1. Get your rest

Routines may vary with summer events, but aim to get seven to nine hours of sleep a night. Keep your room cool and shades pulled to help make your sleep more comfortable.
Why? Sleep helps resolve some of the day to day stress we experience. Getting good sleep has been linked to improvement in mood and reduction in risk of depression and anxiety, among other major health concerns.

2. Move your body

Added heat (even if it's dry heat!) can make exercise uncomfortable in the summer months. Try getting some exercise in the morning hours before the sun is at its peak. Or break up your day and go for shorter walk breaks throughout your day.
Why? We know that research tells us exercise has a strong impact on improving our health, and that includes our mental health! Incorporating regular movement into your life can help with stress relief and an overall improvement in mood.
