Stay Fit This Summer
Take advantage of upcoming warmer weather and make it a point to participate in healthy activities this summer. If you enjoy being outdoors, taking an evening walk or a bike ride with your family is a pleasant way to get exercise. Hiking local trails and natural areas is also an opportunity to learn about local plants and get great photos of any wildlife you encounter along the way.
Swimming, white-water rafting, paddle-boarding and water skiing are more strenuous activities for exercising your muscles. Get your family and friends involved so everyone can join the fun.
During the school year, many families are so busy with activities and homework, it can be difficult to eat healthily. Do you enjoy cooking? Check out Cook With Amber, cookwithamber.com, for nutritious smoothie and snack recipes to try over the summer. You may discover new favorites like Chocolate Peanut Butter Soft Serve or Grilled Fruit Skewers. If you make a habit of eating healthily over the summer, it can easily carry over into the next school year.
