Happy fourth of July! As you celebrate this fun summer holiday, keep these tips in mind for healthy and happy festivities!
If you’re heading to a BBQ, but aren’t feeling the traditional fare of burgers and hot dogs, try something different! Mix up a quinoa salad for a twist on the traditional pasta salad or bring a juicy watermelon instead of indulging on ice cream.
Start Your Day Right
Sweat once a day, and don’t let the holiday be an exception! Find a workout or fitness routine that’s fun and gets you up and moving before all the partying begins. A sunrise yoga class or firecracker 5K is a great way to bond with your family or friends.
There’s nothing worse than a sunburn to put a damper on your celebrations or holiday. If you’re spending your day outdoors, wear a hat and remember to reapply your sunscreen (choose one free of parabens to be kind to yourself and the environment).
Be Mindful of Your Hydration
Whether you’re celebrating with alcoholic libations or not, keep your hydration game strong — especially in the summer heat! Alternate water with your adult beverages to avoid dehydration (and a hangover).
Look the Part
Don your best red, white, and blue to feel your patriotic best. Bonus points for patriotic activewear!
Be safe, have fun, and enjoy this summer holiday!
