Summer And Outdoor Fitness Program

Aug 18, 2007
Usually, most of us avoid any strenuous physical activity in the scorching heat of summer. Summer also means vacations and vacations imply exotic destinations with delightful delicacies. Now all that extravagant indulgence and no exercise at all obviously imply a few extra inches here and there. But this does not necessarily mean that you need to give up exercising all together while on vacation. You can stay indoors and still stay fit and fine. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and observing a few basic guidelines will ensure that you do not gain any unwanted pounds during summer.

A Balanced Diet

The secret lies in maintaining a healthy diet and observing regular eating habits. The summer season necessarily calls for the temptation to quench your thirst with chilled drinks. Instead of consuming aerated beverages which are not only loaded with heavy sugar content, but also cause dehydration, it is advisable to drink fresh fruit juices. These keep you from getting dehydrated and dont add to the calorie intake. It is perfectly alright to enjoy cakes and ice-creams, only if due attention is paid to maintaining a good, balanced and nutritional diet. Avoid skipping meals and irregular eating habits. Instead of snacking too much on junk food, it is better if you include fresh fruits, sandwiches, salads, yoghurt, milkshakes and other food products than have high nutritional value in your diet.

Exercise

In addition to a well-balanced, good nutritional diet, you also need to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Regular exercising is crucial for a fit and healthy body. Depending on your age, lifestyle and other factors, you can choose from an array of different exercises like swimming, aerobics, gym workouts, jogging, bicycling or playing your favorite sport. Exercising on a daily basis not only boosts your health and confidence but also allows you to enjoy a heavy meal, once a while. While on vacation, take advantage of being outdoors and enroll in some sporting or physical activity like trekking or mountain climbing that will enable you to keep your body fit and toned.

Besides this, it will also keep you feeling charged and energetic. Choosing the right type of exercise will not only enhance your morale, but will also prove to be a great stress-buster. It is a well-known fact that exercising regularly improves your immune system and other bodily functions thereby reducing your chances of being afflicted with any ailments and aiding years to your life. In addition to physical fitness, due attention should also be paid to emotional stability and mental fitness. Practicing yoga and other similar exercises aid in developing your entire well-being. In other words, exercising implies staying healthy for a longer time, which in turn means experiencing life to the fullest.

Regular Sleeping Habits

Last, but not the least, in addition to good eating habits and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, it is also vital to observe a regular sleeping pattern. Your body needs sufficient rest in order to feel rejuvenated and refreshed. In addition to feeling relaxed, your body also needs to sleep in order to feel active and revitalized after you wake up.
