Have you prioritized health and wellbeing this Summer 2021? This global pandemic has turned our world upside down in so many ways, but for many of us, it has also had an impact on our health and wellness, both physical and mental. Thank goodness for warmer weather to get outside and get more active! Can you believe we are already at the mid-point of summer? It's a great time to check in with ourselves and focus on our health goals.
Here are some of the best health hacks to quickly get back on track with your health goals...or take them to the next level!
- Stay as active as possible
- Get back to routines
- Get out of isolation and reconnect
- Change your diet
Summer weather has been up and down more than the average elevator this year...so while routines are an excellent way to stay on track with your health goals, there is something to be said about taking advantage when the sun comes out to hike, bike, jog, or even do some awesome outdoor yoga. And for those rainy days...OMG...fitness centres are open again!
Back to Routines
Routines can have a huge impact on your health goals. Where to start? Well...at the very beginning of your day! Start your day a bit earlier than normal (which of course means going to bed a bit earlier). Since so much of our health relies on a healthy gut, one great health hack is starting your day with a glass of water with lemon or water with applecider vinegar to promote a more alkaline gut. In fact, some research has shown that the polyphenol antioxidants found in lemons, significantly red
uces weight gain. Drinking lemon water each morning is one of the easiest health hacks!
Being physically distanced from our friends and family has been very challenging and potentially destructive to our mental health. Now that we are able to get out there and be with people face-to-face, we can break old routines of isolation and create new routines of connecting with people. Wednesday porch parties, Friday share-plates on your favourite restaurant patios or Saturday Apres golf, it's fantastic to have these social gatherings as something to look forward to.
Change Your Diet
Like it our not, about 80% of our health is directly related to diet. Changing our diets can seem like a daunting task and if your summer has been filled with naughty barbecue fair and bevies aplenty...taking stock part way through summer and doing a proverbial reset for your body might be the perfect health hack. And it may be easier than you think.
