Tips to Stay Active and Healthy This Summer

With summer approaching, school and sports start to come to an end. Without a daily routine in place it becomes easier to not be as active and health conscious as you relax on your summer vacations. These four tips can guide you in enjoying an active, healthy summer.
1.Plan with Families and Friends
Being active and healthy with your family and friends forms an accountability system, and possibly some friendly competition. Whether you are planning a healthy eating plan or fitness goals together, doing it with someone will motivate you to stay on track.

2. Drink Water
Being conscious of how much water you are drinking in the summer heat ensures that you stay hydrated. Staying hydrated while being active guarantees your safety and health by replenishing the water leaving your body through sweat. It is recommended by the U.S. National Research Council that you drink 16 more ounces of water in the summer than you typically would.

3.Have a Sleep Schedule
Although you may not have to wake up early for school now that you are on  summer break, having a sleep schedule is still very important to your health. Staying on a sleep schedule makes having a healthy daily routine easier to maintain. Not only does a routine sleep cycle program your body to stay awake during the day, allowing you to be more active, it also allows you to be productive by waking up at a decent hour and not wasting away the day sleeping. Going to bed late and sleeping in late is not a healthy sleep schedule even if you are getting 8-10 hours of sleep. 

4.Eat healthy 
Eating a healthy, balanced diet always benefits you, but in the summer eating fruits and vegetables replenishes electrolytes ensuring hydration.
Having these tips in mind to incorporate into your daily routine will guarantee you, and even friends and family to stay active and healthy this summer!
