Get Out and Enjoy the Bounty of Summer

Enjoy and Active Summer in Windsor EssexLonger days, warm weather, fresh air, kids out of school… Are you taking advantage of summertime?

Summer is our chance to relax and enjoy after enduring the cold harsh winter. For most of us, summer is the time to enjoy outdoor activities like biking, hiking, camping, swimming, barbecues, etc. – not to mention the many festivals and events to be experienced.

In Windsor – Essex County, our seasons are fleeting and this seems to be especially true for summertime… so here are some ways to take advantage of the summertime.

Get out and be active

Why be cooped up in a stuffy gym, or in lounging in front of the TV or the iPad?

There are so many ways to exercise outdoors, from running to swimming to biking, golf, kayaking, paddle-boarding, etc.

It’s the perfect time to ‘change up’ from the same old routines, and our bodies definitely benefit from these kinds of changes.

Of course, when we are braving the elements we should definitely stay well hydrated, use sunblock and avoid full sun exposure. Injury prevention is also important; take note of uneven terrain and use caution with more ‘extreme’ environments. As with all exercise, a proper warm-up is essential.

Enjoy locally-produced fresh produce

When we buy produce from the grocery store, it is generally ‘old’ by the time it hits the shelves. Fresh and local food not only tastes better but it has a higher nutrient content because it is fresh. It is not only a good thing to support local farmers, but it is also healthier and environmentally friendly to enjoy food that is in-season.

Unwind

Summer is a great time to enjoy the more important things in life like family. Summer activities are a perfect way to spend time with the ones that you love.

Watch a sunset, go for a walk, eat a Popsicle, play catch… sometimes the simplest activities can create lasting memories.

We believe that wellness and good health is about balance, so take the time to enjoy the bounties of summer.

The days are getting shorter and before we know it, fall and winter will be upon us before we know it… Make sure that you can look back and say, “I had a great summer!”
