Tips for a Stress-Free Summer

By Donna Stark

Summer is nearly here, and while this season is the favorite for so many, for others, it can be a time of stress, anxiety, and daily challenges. After all, the kids need something to do every day, the in-laws are expecting a visit, and your work is still demanding you to come in to work. On top of that, it's soon going to be too hot to cook! Well, if you are one of those who aren't looking forward to the next couple of months, keep reading! Here are a few simple strategies to follow that will help you enjoy the weeks ahead. Take a look.

Plan Ahead to Minimize Obstacles

Being mindful and proactive is a step in the right direction when it comes to managing your stress levels. Pay attention to your triggers and stay on top of any potential obstacles you may need to face. Whether this means finding a babysitter for your children, declining extra work during certain weeks, or turning down invitations to events, making good choices for you and the family needs to be a priority. Being prepared like this will help you handle any type of situation that comes your way and will help everyone enjoy this time of year more.

Consume a Healthy Diet

Consuming a balanced diet and drinking the recommended amount of water is vital if you want to manage your stress better and remain healthy during the summer season. And fortunately, your summer meals don't require a lot of cooking. Stay out of your kitchen by opting to use your grill, experiment with different cold salads and side dishes, and treat yourself and your family to some homemade fruit sorbet! By nourishing your body with quality foods, you will be able to balance those stressful days much easier.

Stay Physically Active

It can be hard to stay active when the temperatures soar but remember, exercise is one of the best ways to reduce the levels of stress and anxiety in your life. So, try your best to stay fit in your workouts as often as you can. Exercise early in the morning before the day gets too hot, swim some laps at your local pool, or head to an indoor mall for a cool walk. You can also leave the hot temperatures behind by planning a hike under the shade of trees. Start brainstorming ideas now so you are ready and prepared ahead of time!
