Celebrate These June Observances in Healthy Ways
By Brandi Goodman
There are so many things to celebrate with the summer months. It's the start of the summer, after all. Aside from that, though, there are numerous observances held in June that should be celebrated. You can do so in healthy ways that help you enjoy the occasions without feeling guilty for doing so.
Men's Health Month
Men's health may not be as often talked about, but it is definitely something that should be on more people's minds. Celebrate men's health in June any healthy way you see fit. Take the time to go to the doctor if you haven't had a checkup in a while. Visit the chiropractor. Start thinking about the unhealthy habits you've been engaging in and find ways to change them for the better. Plan a getaway with your buddies. Spend a day out on the water fishing and enjoying the silence.
National Safety Month
Staying safe in everything you do can help to prevent injuries and avoid dangerous situations. During National Safety Month, think about all the ways you've been unsafe and do something to change it. Add reflective lights to your bike. Get a helmet for your motorcycle if you've been riding without one. Teach your kids about being safe in every way possible. Wear sunglasses when you're outside. So many small things can greatly improve your chances of staying safe in every situation.
National Candy Month
Candy Month in June encourages people to enjoy some tasty treats. How can you not indulge when it's advertised? Do your best to stay away from the sugary snacks and candy options at the store and try some homemade versions instead. At the very least, you should grab the sugar-free choices instead of the ones that are so detrimental to your health.
Cupcake Lover's Day
Arriving on June 13th is Cupcake Lover's Day. You may be tempted to grab a container of cupcakes from the store to celebrate. Don't! Make some cupcakes at home instead. You can make a recipe from scratch to ensure you end up enjoying a version with fewer calories, less sugar, and more beneficial for your body. Also, be sure you only eat one and don't go overboard.
Celebrate these June observances, and other occasions in the months thereafter, all while continuing your healthy habits. You can enjoy and celebrate so many things without having to indulge in unhealthy eating habits or make poor decisions. Your health and well-being should always be the priority no matter the circumstance.
