Everything seems better in summer. The birds are chirping, it's nice and early light, the sun provides a little extra vitamin D and a nice glow on your face. But... summer brings a number of benefits that are good for your health. Do they come:
1. Ii's Holiday!
Of course you can go on holiday at any time of the year. But now that the school year has ended and the beach beckons, many people still choose to go on holiday in the summer months. A holiday is one of the best gifts to give to yourself. Vacations relieve stress and improve your mood - even when you're back. It also seems that vacations protect us against heart disease and heart attacks. A little time for yourself brings some extra perspective on life and increases motivation to get back to the goals you want to achieve. Another nice side effect is that when you have a tan, you are more satisfied with your body and that in turn creates a higher need for intimacy. We now know all the benefits of intimacy, whether it concerns Solo or Duo sec.
2. Beating heart
In 2012, researchers noticed a difference in the survival rates from a heart attack during winter and summer. People are between 26 and 36 percent more likely to die in the winter from a heart attack, stroke, heart failure, or other vascular disease, according to an NBC News study. It doesn't mean you have to give up your exercise or your healthy diet. It means more that you are going full steam ahead through the healthy habits in the summer, which gives your heart extra protection.
In the summer it is sometimes quite hot, sometimes even too hot. But if the conditions are safe enough to exercise outside without the risk of heat-related illnesses, one thing is certain: you will sweat! That may not sound nice at all, but the truth is that sweat can be very good for you. While it doesn't do the same thing as a detox, sweating can actually help you fight off infections. Sweat helps clear your skin of bacteria and fungi. In addition, it also opens your pores, which ensures that your face remains acne-free.
4. Summer fruits
Seasonal fruits, delicious! Summer wouldn't be complete without piles of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, cherries, and watermelon. They are wonderfully nutritious and full of antioxidants and vitamins. Another additional advantage is that they contain very few calories. Blueberries lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of diabetes. Raspberries and blackberries are excellent sources of fiber and cherries provide recovery after exercise. Fruits are also packed with water, which helps you stay hydrated on hot days.
In the summer you can dive into the swimming pool or the sea. In addition to being wonderfully cooling, swimming uses all muscle groups and improves your strength, because the water provides natural resistance. Swimming is very good for people with joint pain. In addition, swimming improves your mood and can relieve depression. In fact, according to a study published in the International Journal of Aquatic Research and Education, swimmers have a lower risk of death than runners and walkers.
