Spring breaking the healthy way

I have a feeling that you might be just as stoked as I am about spring break coming up next week. Whether you’re hitting the road like me, adventuring with the family or spending your time relaxing at home, being safe and healthy should still be a priority. Here are a few ways to continue living in wellness even on break.

Get up and out. Even if you’re here at home, don’t get caught bumming around all day everyday. Yes, relaxing is nice, but take the time to get a good walk in, ride your bike or go for a quick run. Even a day-trip wandering through the local museums will guarantee a better, more productive day than stuffing your face with Cheetos and binge-watching “Friends,” (debatably).

You know what’s cooler than being really, really tan? Not developing melanoma. Blah blah blah, here comes the the sunscreen lecture again. But really, people, this is a serious thing. The sun’s rays are scientifically proven to cause damage to your skin that can lead to cancer. So please, enjoy the day on the beach, reading a book in the sunshine, but soak up some suntan lotion along with that Vitamin D. It could save you tons of trips to the doctor’s later in life, not to mention – sunburn really hurts!

Hold yourself to your eating habits. Even though spring break is a little bit like a real-life-hiatus, being sure to continue fueling your body well is important. Especially if you are on vacation, it can be easy to eat junky, not-so-good-for-you food. Avoid this by preplanning meals and bringing along healthy snacks, like sliced peppers, carrots, granola or pasta salads.

Catch the Zzzzs. Finally, this is your chance to catch up on that sleep you might be missing from the past week’s midterm rush. Erase those dark circles under your eyes with bountiful naps, sleeping in and early bedtimes. Certainly use the days off to adventure and enjoy time with family and friends, but don’t forget to rest up to finish out the rest of the week (and the school year) strong!
