4 Ways to Stay Motivated in the Summer

More stock images - 078Taking care of your body isn’t something that happens overnight and is something that takes consistent work and effort. By making healthy choices, you can stay motivated and on-track all summer long with these 4 tips.

 

  1. Eat Fresh Fruit

With fruits such as watermelon and blueberries being in season, summer is the best time to swap that ice cream for a bowl of fresh fruit. Even if your friends and family decide to go for the less healthy alternative, take a step back and ask yourself “Will I regret this later?” If the answer is “yes,” then go for that bowl of delicious and nutritious fruit.

 

  1. Try Something New

It’s easy to get caught in the same routine of going to the gym everyday at the same time. However, with the heat of summer, it’s the perfect time to take your workout outdoors and try something new. For example, if you live by the ocean, try taking a surfing lesson. Surfing is great for your arms, legs, and core— it’s the perfect total-body workout.

 

Do you live near the mountains? Try going on a hike that you’ve never been on. If the hike is longer than you think you can go, make it a goal to make it to the top of the mountain by the end of summer. That way you have something to work towards all summer long.

 

  1. Transport Yourself

Even if the sun is scorching hot, put away your car and get into the habit of walking or biking places. For example, if you’re meeting friends for dinner at a restaurant that’s a few miles away, leave an hour early and walk to the restaurant. If you’re too tired to walk back, ask one of your friends for a lift home. The added calories that you’ll burn by walking could help you lose an extra little weight.

 

  1. Activities

Although summer is notorious for releasing blockbuster hits, try to mix-up your summer activities and do something outside. For example, instead of going to a movie on a Friday night, grab a Frisbee and head to the park to play with your friends. Not only will your body thank you, but the social interaction will leave you feeling happier than before.
