Positively Speaking: Patricia's Perspective

Tips For Healthy Summer Living

We have had quite a year with COVID. As we start moving back to “normal” and getting outside even more than last year, here are some healthy living tips for the summer months:

Have a Strong Vision. Do what brings you meaning and joy as often as you can. Look beyond the surface of the job or business to what you gain intrinsically like peace, recognition, security, acceptance, connection, etc. Look at your "bucket list" or what is on your post-COVID list, and try to implement one or more of the things on your list.

Choose supportive friends. Have a network of positive and active people to enhance your life and help keep you healthy. These are the people you know
you can count on and will be there for you both in good and hard times. This
summer, consider trips to visit those close to you whom you haven't seen during the pandemic. Wear masks if needed.

Seek joy daily. Find new things you enjoy or try a variation of what you know, like traveling, playing a sport, or volunteering. There are so many additional
activities in the summer months, golf, boating, kayaking, swimming in the ocean
or lake, biking, hiking, nature walking, and the list goes on. Be aware of the
strong sun – and don’t overdo it, which can happen when we have been physically isolated.

Be proactive with your health, mentally, physically, spiritually. Keep moving
your body, find the right exercises and activities for you, eat whole unprocessed
foods, get enough sleep, and keep a positive attitude. This is very important, particularly during COVID when there has been so much anxiety due to the uncertainty of this time. When you exercise and move your body, your brain releases serotonin, the positive endorphins/happy chemicals, which will help you stay positive, active, and hopeful.

Keep learning and growing. Protect your mental and physical health by
keeping your brain active and learning something new. It could be a new sport, a new way to do your favorite exercise or activity. Learning something new, which is not repetitive activities, creates new neuropathways in the brain, and keeps your brain active.
