You may be trapped inside and social distancing more than you'd planned this summer, but that does not mean you can't still have fun this season while taking every chance you can to get into the best mental and physical shape of your life. Here are four ways to do just that.
You may not be able to go to the gym this summer, but that's only more reason for you to take extra care to get in some exercise at least a few days every week. These can be as simple as some sit-ups and push-ups at home, a run around your neighborhood, or a bike ride through the nearby countryside. You may not be able to swim at the pool this summer, but you can still swim in open waters like a local lake or beach that has reopened.
Curling up with a good summer book has been a tradition for many, no matter the current state of the world. Under the circumstances of a global pandemic, with travel restrictions in place all over, a good book can be an even better opportunity to travel to far off places and explore new worlds than it is normally. Reading is not only an excellent escape from reality when you need it most. It also expands your mind and keeps you mentally focused and sharp, while helping your body relax and destress.
3. Eating (and Drinking) Right
Summertime offers the opportunity to enjoy many delicious seasonal foods, some of which are more beneficial for your mental and physical fitness than others. Ice cream and frozen margaritas, for example, are not going to do much good for your mental and physical wellness, while fresh fruits and seasonal vegetables will. Remember, as well, that summertime is often a more dehydrating time and, therefore, your body's required intake of water will increase. Be sure to drink enough water this summer to support your body and brain in feeling and to be their best.
Supporting all of these other activities are an abundance of natural herbs with therapeutic properties for the body and mind. Among these are antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that promote and support physical and mental wellness. Farlong Pharmaceutical specializes in these, with supplements like Astaxanthin and Liquid Calcium + D3.
Astaxanthin is a potent antioxidant that boosts the immune system, improves blood circulation, and reduces inflammation, among other benefits. Calcium helps to support strong bones, which are essential for optimal physical health, while vitamin D3 is vital for helping the body absorb and better utilize it.
All Farlong Pharmaceutical supplements contain active ingredients grown on Farlong's 6,000-acre, GAP-compliant, non-GMO farm located in China's Yunnan Province and tested both in-house and in a third-party laboratory for safety and quality.
