It is true that in the summer and due to the hot weather and environmental humidity, we do not desire to do physical activity. But it is also true that summer offers many fun opportunities to exercise outdoors. You need to lower the intensity of physical activity and choose the coolest hours of the day, protect you properly from the sun, moisturize, and monitor sudden changes of temperature in air-conditioned facilities … but we can continue to take care of our body and our health as you do in winter, all in order to stay healthy all year round.
For example, is there something better than swimming in a pool as natural as the ocean? Or, perhaps, in a lake of crystalline waters in the mountains? Because swimming is an excellent exercise for the summer. Another physical activity you can not resist is snorkeling. Is there a better way to go through these hot flashes than looking at the wonders of the seabed? And what do you say about, simply, walking down the beach? Long walks on the sand are highly beneficial.
Another proposal is to do yoga on the beach, how do you feel about that? It is a delight to exercise your body and relax your mind with the sun, the sea, the sand and the breeze refreshing your body. Avoid, of course, the hottest hours of the sun, it is advisable to practice it early in the morning or at night. In addition, it is a very pleasant physical, mental and energetic activity to share in a group.
You can also practice volleyball, soccer or tennis on the beach, but avoid the strongest hours of sunshine and, because they are intense physical activities, rest whenever you need, look for the shade from time to time, and hydrate! And … dancing on the beach with the rhythm of the summer song? It’s so funny! And, a last suggestion to take care of yourself and stay healthy while doing physical activity in the summer, is the paddle-surf, a classical since some years ago … but, if you want to be really trendy … You have to dare with the yoga paddle, the fusion of static surfing and the postures or asanas of yoga … a real challenge! So, you have no excuse for not taking care of your body and spending a fun and healthy summer. Eat well, exercise your body and live well, also in the summer!
