Let’s be honest, 2020 wasn’t what any of us were expecting. For the first time in memory, the majority of us were stuck at home for extended periods of time. As a result, many ended up spending the day in pajamas and eating unhealthy foods while watching copious amounts of television. Although completely understandable, these habits did nothing for our waistline or our energy levels.
But now, as we’re finally coming out of a year of stay-at-home orders, many of us are looking to get back on track this summer and start taking care of ourselves. So we’d like to offer some suggestions on supercharging your summer through healthy eating, light exercise, and Delta-8.
You want to be prepared as much as possible before you exercise during the summer months. Part of that preparation should be to get your body ready for the light summer workout by enjoying our Delta 8 THC Tincture about an hour before your workout. Our D8 blend with CBN is a great way to get you in the exercise frame of mind and promote homeostasis within your muscles.
So now that you’re ready, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Summer Exercise Tips
- Make sure to pace yourself and drink one to two cups of low or no sugar sports drink or water an hour before your workout.
- Try to schedule your outside workout either before the sun rises or after it sets so that it’s cooler.
- Keep a protein bar or pretzels on hand if you will be working out for more than an hour (you might need a little boost).
- Stick with low-intensity workouts during times of high heat.
- Be sure to wear breathable, lightweight, sweat-wicking clothing that will pull moisture away from your skin.
- Wear a hat to protect your head and face from the summer sun.
Summertime Exercise Ideas
Look for cooler places to exercise. For example, if you’re close to a breezy shoreline or shady woods, exercise there.
Another idea is to exercise in the rain. We know it may sound silly, but it can be exhilarating to feel the rain as you run or bike ride. But, of course, if you hear thunder or see lightning, it’s time to get indoors.
Go for a walk after dinner. If you’re close to a beach, a walk in the sand not only offers more resistance and increases the intensity of the walk it’s also a very nice way to end the day. In addition, a 20-minute walk after dinner will help your body regulate its insulin and glucose levels as well to avoid spikes.
Of course, the ultimate summer exercise is swimming. Swim 10 to 15 50-meter laps, and rest for 60 seconds between intervals. This will not only provide you with an effective low-impact workout, but you will also be enjoying the deliciously cool water during and after your laps.
Healthy Eating over the Summer
Eating healthy is going to help supercharge your summer by giving your body the nutrition it needs. So while you’re whipping up this great keto-friendly summer recipe from Feasting at Home, why not indulge in a Delta 8 Triple Bear to add a little fun to the experience? Or how about a Delta 8 THC Bomb after the meal for a sweet finish to a great dinner? These chewy candies are perfect when you need a tasty way to get your daily dose of Delta 8 THC.
Stuffed Avocado with Shrimp and Tarragon
4–5 ounces cooked shrimp – shelled and cut into bite-sized pieces
1 scallion – sliced thinly at a diagonal
2 radishes – diced finely
3 tablespoons celery – diced finely
1 tablespoon fresh tarragon leaves – chopped, add more for garnish later
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt – more for sprinkling
1/8 teaspoon cracked pepper
1 perfectly ripe, large avocado – cut in half, pit removed.
Optional garnish: Sunflower Sprouts or tarragon leaves
In a medium-sized bowl, combine all the ingredients except for the avocado. Stir the mixture well. Once it’s well mixed, let it rest for 5 minutes. Mix it again and taste. If necessary, adjust the salt and lemon juice to your preference. Then refrigerate until ready to serve.
Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, sprinkle the halves with salt and pepper, and divide the shrimp mixture between the two halves. Top with sprouts or tarragon leaves. Enjoy immediately!
Overall Self Care
Diet and exercise are only two ways of supercharging your summer. Taking care of yourself will also help you to get back on track after a long year of hibernation.
Begin with an overall wellness routine. Yes, diet and exercise are important, but ensuring you have a balance of supplements to help support your body is another way to self-care. In our summertime supercharge selection, we can think of nothing better than our Delta 8 THC Softgels to accomplish this. Of all of our summertime ideas, this item tops our list of Delta 8 products. Convenient to take with you anywhere or perfect at home, these softgels are a great way to get the Delta 8 you desire throughout the day. And each softgel carries 25 milligrams of Delta 8 THC in a long-lasting capsule so that you can enjoy the benefits for hours.
One of the other ways to take care of yourself is to slow down and take time for yourself. Leave time in your day to meditate, take a bath, or read a book. Try setting aside time just for you to do something you really enjoy every day.
