Why not avoid a mad panic just before summer hits by starting preparing early? With the following simple steps, you will manage to slowly ease into a summer self and body preparation routine. Prep your body for summer with the following tips.
WHAT TO DO: It’s time to get moving. And this does not mean to lock yourself into a gym for hours, getting all sweaty and exhausted. Engage yourself in outdoors activity, for just 30 minutes per day, even for 5 times a week. This can include walking and light jogging in a pace of 5 minute intervals. Or –additionally- you can pick a destination every weekend and explore it on foot.
WHY: The advantage of regular exercise not only includes weight loss, but more important is that consistent exercise results in body fat loss and development of muscle tone, which shows most while wearing lighter clothing.
WHAT TO DO: Enrich your daily meals with more fruits and vegetables. This will help you consume less food, as they will fill you up on fewer total calories because they are high in fiber and bulk.
WHY: Fruits and vegetables are rich in Vitamins A, C and E which all act as antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties. Apart from that, they also protect the skin from oxidating effects from the sun and toxic chemicals from the hot air and have also been shown to help fight against heart disease, cancer and obesity.

WHY: Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being, throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can improve your quality of life in general.
Water in & out
WHAT TO DO: Drink lots of water. Have an extra glass or two during warmer weather in order to stay hydrated and look flawless. You can also try to add a slice of lemon or orange in it.
WHY: By Staying hydrated you will flush out toxins and help clear your skin from the inside out. Drinking lots of water boosts your energy, health and appearance. Also, water can help fight heat exhaustion, and even has shown to decrease bladder cancer in men.
The message in massage
WHAT TO DO: It is time to focus on relaxation. Budgeting time and money for bodywork is truly an investment in your health. And remember: just because massage feels like a pampering treat doesn’t mean it is any less therapeutic.
WHY: Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension. Not only will a massage improve your mental health, but it also tightens your skin and helps to hide any pesky, confidence-shaking dimples.
