The weather is warming, the days are getting longer, and summer is nearing. No matter where you look you are receiving constant reminders that it’s time to work on your summer body. With a quick Google search, flip through a magazine or scroll through Instagram, you receive constant feedback that you must have a perfectly sculpted body this summer. Is a perfectly sculpted body a healthy body though? Not necessarily.
Many articles focused on “getting your summer body” set the premise that there is something wrong with your body and if you are going to wear a swimsuit you better make some changes. You better go on a crash diet and whip yourself into shape, no breaks for you.
At New Earth, we say to heck with that nonsense!
You only have one body–it makes sense to love it, to love yourself. Do you know what happens when you love yourself? You treat yourself with respect, you think good thoughts, and you nourish your body.
Rather than focusing on a six pack or perfectly sculpted arms, turn inward and focus on self love, self care and total wellness as you prepare your rockin’ summer body. So, what might that look like? Here are a few tips to get you on your way.
- Focus on Loving Yourself
Rather than focusing on preparing your body for a bikini, focus on self love that will contribute to your overall health, wellness and happiness. Yes, we said it, it’s more about how you feel than how you look.
- Move That Body You Love Outside
The warm refreshing summer days and evenings are calling your name. Leave TV and the cozy couch behind and get outside while it’s nice! Plan outdoor adventures that you enjoy for the weekends and post-dinner strolls during the week. The more you move your body the better you will feel both physically and mentally.
- Nourish That Body You Love With Whole Foods
Summer brings some of the most delicious fruits and veggies. Celebrate the season by feeding your body what it deserves, fresh whole foods. These foods provide the nutrients that your body craves, the nutrients that allow you to be your best self.
Kick it up a notch by supplementing with Essentials, whole food nutrition in convenient daily packets providing your body with high quality, wild-crafted nutrients, probiotics and enzymes.
