Stay on track for Spring Break
Spring break can be a fun and relaxing time. But, while relaxing and enjoying your vacation, you should keep your health and well-being in mind.
Here are some tips to stay healthy during spring break:
- Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water throughout the day, especially if you spend time outdoors in the sun.
- Get enough sleep: Aim for 7-9 hours each night to help your body recharge and stay healthy.
- Eat a balanced diet: Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains. Limit your intake of processed foods, sugary drinks, and alcohol.
- Stay active: Whether going for a walk, taking a yoga class, or playing beach volleyball, find ways to stay active during your break.
- Practice safe sun exposure: Use sunscreen and protective clothing to prevent sunburns and reduce the risk of skin cancer.
- Stay connected: Spend time with friends and family, and make time for self-care activities like meditation or journaling.
Remember that caring for your physical and mental health is important year-round, not just during spring break.
By prioritizing your health and making healthy choices, you can enjoy your vacation and return feeling refreshed and ready to tackle whatever comes next.
If you’re spending spring break as a family, exercising together can be fun to stay active, bond, and improve your overall health. Here are some exercises that the whole family can do together over spring break:
- Walking or hiking: Going for a walk or hike is a great way to get outside and exercise. Choose a local trail or park and make it a family outing.
