It’s that time of the year again! The sun is shining bright, the weather is nice and warm, and we’re all trying to find ways to have the happiest, healthiest summer possible. There are still ways to get out and enjoy your summer, even though we’re all experiencing some restrictions related to the COVID-19 situation. Summer is all about enjoying the sun, nature, and keeping our bodies healthy in the process. If you’re still looking for a way to spice up your plans, we’ve got some ideas to get you headed in the right direction!
It’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle all year long, but during the summer months, there are so many ways you can mix it up and make things more interesting! It’s understandable if you’ve fallen a tad bit short of motivation lately. It can be hard to stay motivated to work out when you’ve been inside for months, but pushing through and getting exercise is crucial for improving your mental health, mood, concentration, and more. Since it’s summertime, why not go outside and get that blood pumping? One of the best summer exercises you can take advantage of is hiking. If you choose to do your cardio outdoors, you might want to aim for the early morning hours or later in the day so that you can avoid the scorching heat that might have otherwise sent you to the hospital!
With that in mind, you can get your cardio in while admiring all of nature’s beauty. However, before you venture out onto a new hiking trail, you might want to do some research on it in order to determine how long the trail is and its intensity level. This way, you know exactly what to expect and can find an alternative trail that better suits your skill level if needed.
Hiking is a great form of cardio that does wonders for the leg muscles, but if you haven’t been working out as much recently, your legs might be a little tight when you wake up the next morning. No need to stress; we’re here for you! You’ll want to take advantage of our Muscle & Joint Cream because, which boasts a voluptuous new cooling formula infused with natural anti-inflammatories and vasoconstrictors such as white willow bark, menthol, and caffeine. These botanical extracts have been utilized for centuries, so we knew we had to combine them in a topical with some of our highest topical CBD concentrations yet: 500mg and 1000mg! This cream is more than just your average CBD cream; it’s topical ingredients travel deep into those muscles that are bothering you, loosening them up and preparing you for your next adventure!
Enjoy Fresh Fruits & Veggies
The summer sun makes sweet, juicy fruits and veggies that much better! So, it only makes sense that this is the time of year to enjoy all the fresh produce that comes your way. You can visit your local farmers market to pick up some goods, or you can even grow some of your favorites right in your own backyard! It’s important to make sure you’re consuming an adequate amount of healthy fruits and veggies each day, to benefit from their healthy attributes. Most of the essential vitamins and nutrients that people take supplements for can actually be acquired through a healthy diet. For example, did you know that tomatoes are loaded with antioxidants, vitamin C, and lycopene, which helps your body fight against certain diseases and illnesses? The best part is that you can simply take some organic seeds and place them in a small container with some dirt. Within days, you’ll have your very own tomato plant sprouting up!
Another summer favorite is watermelon. Who doesn’t enjoy a cool slice of watermelon on a hot summer day? This refreshing fruit is loaded with vital nutrients such as beta carotene, lycopene, vitamin C, and a collection of other antioxidants.
Since you’re on a roll, why stop there? Make sure your body is receiving everything it needs by including our Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies in your regimen. Apple cider vinegar reigns supreme when it comes to health and wellness due to its antimicrobial and antioxidant properties. Each serving contains 10mg of organically grown CBD hemp extract, as well as 1mg of magnesium and 1.2mcg of Vitamin B12. These gummies are the perfect addition to your wellness routine!
Drink Your Water
It seems like our summers get hotter every year, with temperatures reaching well into the hundreds for weeks at a time. With these types of temperatures, it’s imperative that you make sure you’re drinking plenty of water every day. Some of us love drinking water, while others don’t seem to care for it as much; especially with their meals! Whether you’re one of those people or not, you can liven your water up by adding some fresh fruits and herbs. One of the most popular combinations is lemons, limes, cucumbers, and fresh mint. Simply placing these ingredients in a fresh pitcher of distilled water will have you begging for more! The benefits of drinking enough water are endless, and it probably has something to do with our bodies being 60% water!
If you decide that you want to mix up your beverage intake a little bit, shake things up with one of our refreshing CBD Chill Shots. These shots are the perfect midday pick-me-up, providing 200mg of L-Theanine and 20mg of premium, full spectrum CBD. If you’re wondering what L-Theanine is, it’s a natural energy-boosting amino acid found in green and black teas. With our Chill Shots, you’ll have a newfound source of energy with an underlying layer of “coolness” that allows you to breeze through the rest of the day.
Protect Your Skin
Protecting your skin from the intense summer sun should always be a priority. Those ultraviolet UVA and UVB rays can cause sunburns, contribute to wrinkles, and even lead to certain types of harmful afflictions. Make sure you’re utilizing an SPF Sunscreen when you go outside to avoid all of these effects. You only get one body, so you’ve got to protect every inch of it at all costs. This could mean further protecting your skin by using our Rejuvediol CBD Face Oil Serum. This serum is perfect to rub into your skin after cleansing and before sunscreen to further protect your skin from harmful UV rays as well as free radicals. We’ve taken our time to handpick specific essential oils and plant botanical extracts that blend together perfectly and give your skin the ultimate glow and cell turnover needed to keep you looking healthy and vibrant.
We know this is a “different” type of summer, but you can still make the best of it by focusing on the mental, physical, and health aspects of your life. Enjoy your summer with these helpful tips from CBDfx!
