It’s hot outside. You don’t like sweating or the going out in the heat, but you want to find ways to tackle your healthy lifestyle goals. Me too! Finding healthy ways to move more and eat better is always at the forefront of my mind. Making small changes can make a big difference. Hopefully these 5 Healthy Ways to Beat the Summer Heat will give you some motivation and inspiration to do what you can, no matter what the temperature is outside.
Start Early – The heat of the day is not your friend when your trying to move more. A daily walk for at least 60 minutes of movement is my goal, so I have to start early. I like to up and out before 7:30 AM and get a good hour of walking in. If you are a morning person, I’ll bet you can start even earlier than that. Staying up late and sleeping until at least 7:00 AM is part of my normal routine. Morning aren’t usually my peak time. Avoiding outdoor exercise between 10 AM and 2 PM is always my goal in the summer.
Utilize a Pool – If you don’t have a pool or belong to a local pool, find friends that have one. That’s probably harder than it sounds, but with a bit of effort you can find ways to use a pool that someone else owns to meet your move more goals. Offer to teach a water aerobics class if someone else provides the pool. Barter for use of a pool. Maybe you can babysit, clean, do yard work or whatever needs done in exchange for a few hours a week of pool time.
Finding healthy ways to live better in the summer heat doesn’t have to be complicated.
Take Supplements – There are certain vitamins and minerals that can help you feel better and have more energy to combat the summer heat. Make sure you are choosing high quality supplements.
I suggest Savesta supplements. They are as pure as nature intended and are manufactured without any toxic chemicals to concentrate the active ingredients in the herbs. Savesta uses only pure water and alcohol to produce the extracts used in their line of supplements.
Proudly made in the USA, Savesta aims to provide supplements that are safe for everyone, including Vegans. They use only sustainable, vegetarian tablets or capsules with no animal-derived ingredients and wildcrafted herbs harvested in a responsible way that preserves the plants in the wild.

Hydrate – Making sure you are properly hydrated should be a goal all year long. You need to be careful during the summer heat to make sure your fluid intake is appropriate for the amount of exercise you are doing, too. Water is a vital nutrient we can no live without. Drink up!
Can you spare $10 a month? – $10 a month, can add up quickly, but if you give up a daily iced coffee or takeout meal, you’ll have an extra $10 a month is no time flat. Having a membership to Planet Fitness is invaluable in my opinion. It’s only $10 a month and they often run specials where you only pay $1 down to get started. Being able to visit an air-conditioned space to get in a workout is priceless. Go early or late, to beat the after work crowds.
