KEEPING FIT OVER SUMMER
**Written by My-Myo Practitioner Dylan Flannery
Hydrate - we lose on average 2.5 litres of water per day, and we need to replenish what we lose especially throughout summer as we lose more water due to sweating. Good hydration enables, mental alertness (improves ability to concentrate), improved digestion, and great for the Christmas day feast!
Get outside and enjoy the sun - Just 10 minutes, 2-3 times per week to get your dose of vitamin D. Vitamin D's primary role is to support the development and maintenance of bones and teeth as well as many other health benefits.
Antioxidants are key for a healthy summer. Not only are antioxidants crucial for decreasing stress and fighting free radicals, they are also important for detoxing the body…especially after a late night. Super greens are also known for detoxing the blood and liver, which is great tonic for relieving any hangover symptoms.
Eat fruit to stay hydrated. Besides water, certain fruit and vegetables also fulfil your fluid requirements in addition to providing healthful nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, fibre and protein. Such as watermelon and strawberries.
