4 Wellness Tips to Adopt this Summer

If you’re in the mood for boosting your wellness this summer, take a look at our four tips to get you started.

The summertime is a great opportunity to focus on being your best self, adopting great new habits, and spending quality time on hobbies and interests.

If you’re in the mood for boosting your wellness this summer, take a look at our four tips to get you started.

1.    Drink Plenty of Water

Staying hydrated in the sunshine is incredibly important, as spending too much time in the sun can lead to dehydration.

If you’re not a fan of drinking tap or mineral water, you could jazz up your fluid intake by using a Sodastream. By adding specialist syrup, you can transform your sparkling water into lemonade, Pepsi or even tonic water or ginger ale.

2.    Get a Good Night’s Rest

Sleep is credited as one of the most important factors for keeping you fit and healthy. Getting a full eight hours of kip every night is a great way to ensure you’re well rested and ready for whatever the day might throw your way.

Therefore, it’s a good idea to make sure that your bed is comfortable, and well-suited for any existing ailments you might have (for example, a bad back). This means you’ll be able to sleep easily without worrying about aches and pains caused by an ill-suited mattress.

Sleep specialists like Archers Sleep Centre are experts at helping you pick a mattress that is best suited to your sleeping habits, so you can rest well every night.

3.    Exercise Often

Moving your body is attributed to the release of endorphins, which can help with lifting your mood.

If you’re not an exercise fanatic, there are plenty of low-intensity exercises you can do that won’t make you break a sweat. Why not take a walk around your neighbourhood, or take part in some Geocaching in your local area? Not only is walking good for heart health and wellbeing, but walking in sunshine can also boost your daily intake of Vitamin D.

Alternatively, if you do love a good gym session, blasting out those cardio exercises, or taking up a new class can be a great way to de-stress.

4.    Detox from Your Phone

Although maintaining a social media presence can be important to some, you may find that being in a constant online presence could affect your mental health.

You can replace regular online activity with other hobbies like reading, writing, or playing a sport. Research has shown that engaging in other hobbies and interests can reduce the risk of anxiety and depression, and will help you to maintain a social life off the screen.
