When the end of summer comes, it’s hard to fathom what your puffy winter coat and warm fuzzy socks feel like—you’re still trying to get the sand out of your hair! Here’s what you need to take advantage of before the sun-soaked days slip into the chilly autumn months.
If you’ve gone the whole summer without a sunburn, keep it up! Though your skin likely has some SPF built up from the past few months, it’s important to reapply sun block even though the UV index might not be quite as strong.
There aren’t many days out of the year where it’s the perfect balance of just warm enough to exercise outside but not too hot. Find a gym buddy and a sunny spot to do lunges, squats, and pushups outdoors. Or, skip the treadmill and go for a sunrise run. The first frost might come sooner than you think!
With berry season ending, eat as many summer fruits as you can! They’re still fresh and full of vitamins and antioxidants that your body craves. Summer veggie salads are a refreshing treat that can only be enjoyed for the next few weeks!
Just like every day of the year, make sure you’re getting in your eight daily glasses of water. In the summer, your body sweats and needs more water and electrolytes. Give it what it needs and go into your healthiest fall yet!
