What happened to the weather, hey? Be patient, they will eventually come, even to the British isles. Who wouldn’t love Summer? It’s a great time to get a healthy dose of Vitamin D whilst boosting our feel-good factor as we spend more time outdoors. And there are different reasons. It’s not just a feel-good boost we get from the sunshine; we get many other benefits too! In good weather we are more likely to spend more time outside in the fresh air, maybe lunch in the park rather than indoors, a family outing to the beach or a get-together with friends. These types of events make us feel happy and relaxed, so we associate sunshine with feel-good moments and happy memories.
Brighter weather can make us feel more inspired, creative, and even more daring. Use this Summer as an opportunity to start a new activity or challenge – and when you track your progress, you’ll become much more encouraged to reach your final goal. Why not try achieving a personal best in running or surprising yourself by trying a new activity – all fun ways to stay motivated and focused.
Food is our best source of energy. To help keep energy levels up, we really need to eat healthy – integrating the most nutritious foods in our diets. Foods that help our energy levels include whole grains, nuts, and some fruits (grapes, apples, oranges, peaches, pears and grapefruit) and vegetables with a high fiber content such as peas, beans and leafy greens.
Our bodies are made to move. Whether you choose to get your regular activity by going to the gym or walking the dog, it’s important to find something you enjoy doing. Taking part in the regular, moderate activity is not only part of an active wellness lifestyle, it can also help us feel more confident too. Sometimes our body might need a little extra support to help make activities more comfortable. Have you ever tried Nikken’s kinetic KenkoTherm® DUK Tape ? It is a flexible kinetic tape that you can apply for extra support during activities.
We all know how great we feel after a good nights’ sleep! Sleep is extremely important to our health regardless of the time of the year. With longer, brighter days it can be difficult to get some shut-eye. Create your own sleep sanctuary – according to “the sleep charity”, an ideal bedroom temperature is around 16-18°C.1. The Nikken Kenko PowerSleep® Mask… not only eliminates light distraction, but it also produces an area of magnetic flux for comfort.
Make sure you’re feeling at your best inside and out to max out your Summer fun this year!
