HOW TO ENJOY A HEALTHY SUMMER
You look forward to enjoying your summer vacation. We would all like a little time off to travel, or to just putter around home in the pleasant lazy summer days. But it is hard to have much fun if you don’t have the energy, or if you hurt. Here are a few tips for a healthy summer vacation:
If you are going to be active like water skiing, hiking or participating in an unaccustomed activity… get in shape ahead of time. Walk more, or run more, or swim, or exercise a little more than usual to get your body ready for the increased action. Then before you step into the water or strap on that pack, warm up your muscles with some lighter activity to get them ready for action. Be sure to come in for your chiropractic adjustments to tune up your body for the upcoming activities.
Eat sensibly… Just because you are away or on a cruise does not mean that you can eat all the ice cream and cake you want and not suffer. You don’t have to restrict yourself to salads unless you are a real salad aficionado… however if you sample a lot of tasty foods in moderation, you will enjoy
the new or favorite tastes and not suffer complaints from your stomach or bowels afterwards.
Make sure to take reasonable times for snacks between meals. This way your blood sugar will remain level and you can maintain your energy. Also if you are not starving at meal time, you most likely won’t over-indulge. Healthy blood sugar levels also help you remain calm and focused when traveling.
Stay hydrated. Be sure to drink plenty of water. We sweat more in the summer and need to replenish our water and electrolytes. Dehydration can cause muscle cramps, stomach cramps, headaches, trouble thinking, and heat stroke where you can even pass out. Ice tea and juices are not going to do the same job as water or water with an electrolyte such as a sports drink.
And if you should suffer a vacation injury, or if you are hurting now and want to feel better for your vacation… why suffer? Come in for your chiropractic adjustment. Should you need us simply call us at 978-535-6155.
