Summer is approaching quickly! Many clients reach out to BeBalanced during this time of year in a panic thinking they are better off steering clear of all fun summer events. Let’s face it, life isn’t going to simply stop while you are trying to make better food choices or lose weight, and neither should you! Here are some tips on how to enjoy your summer, without feeling like you are being completely derailed.
Change your focus from feeling like you’re missing out on something, to creating a life you love, doing things that make you happy, and taking care of yourself.
Daily use of relaxation techniques, like those in our program, is key to helping you achieve natural hormone balance. Practicing calming tools will help to lower cortisol levels, stabilize your blood sugar, and will help keep you focused.
During the hot summer months, heat and sweat can leave your body dehydrated. A lack of water is harmful to your body, so before you go anywhere, make sure you consume at least 3/4 of your daily water requirement.
When eating out, choose restaurants that are better suited to fit your needs and make sure there are always options that fit your dietary restrictions. Trust us, your body will thank you later!
Try to avoid mixed drinks that are high in sugar and opt for those that have more natural flavors such as fresh lemon, lime juice or muddled berries.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle that promotes feeling your best is a choice. If you go a little overboard, just wake up the next day ready to get right back on track! Make sure to give yourself some slack and don't get derailed by one little mishap.
