Healthy Spring Break Tips

It’s safe to come out of hibernation people. The sun is finally out and Spring is actually here. This time, it’s for real. I mean, this Winter just kept dragging and dragging. Am I right? Thankfully, those days are behind us now. Let’s move on and pretend we weren’t stressing over the cold.

It’s that time of year where the flowers start to bloom, our moods get a little better and we start planning some getaways. It’s been a while since I took a trip somewhere warm or anywhere at all. I know all you moms understand what it’s like having a new baby (not so new anymore, he’s 9 months). Truthfully, I had forgotten how much energy and time it takes to prepare all their stuff. Whether it’s to get them ready for a bath, nap, feeding, diaper change.. It’s a lot. By the time that’s all done, I have zero energy to get ready myself. I will say, things are getting much better every single day (thank goodness). For instance, last week I spent a day gardening and he was playing with his older sisters the entire time and that never happens. I can’t deny he’s a mama’s boy. Yet, now he’s a little more independant, plays with his toys and wants to eat on his own. In other words, I don’t have any excuses not to get ready and plan family trips.

& speaking of; I’m excited to be taking a fun trip with my whole family (and by whole family I mean EVERYONE! Dad, cousins, aunts etc) very soon. We all need a break from our daily hustle and bustle. I’m so glad to have booked something fun for all of us to get together and create memories. Will share details in weeks to come.

Today’s post is very fitting as many of us will be traveling or just spending time outdoors. I’ll be helping you stay healthy while still having fun.

Here are five tips for a healthy Spring Break.

The first tip is stay hydrated. Ok, ok.. I know this is one is obvious and it’s why I wanted to make it number one. Staying hydrated is super important because when we’re having fun and sometimes drinking alcohol, we tend to forget to drink water. Lack of water can make you feel weak, tired and confused especially if one is out in the sun.

I like drinking a tall glass of water right before bed and as soon as I wake up. When we sleep, our bodies can get dehydrated. So, drinking a glass of water in the morning does wonders to your body and to your brain. It’s almost like fuel to the body before starting the day.

Second tip is practice moderation. Like William C. Dudley said “Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing”. “Too much darkness could kill you, but too much light could blind”. Same concept when it comes to eating at the endless buffet or drinking alcohol at the beach. All in moderation.

Third tip is stick to your sleep schedule. We can all slack with this one since all we want to do is make the best out of the time we have by having as much fun as possible. Remember, not getting the right amount of sleep can cause premature wrinkles, mood swings, weight gain, lack of motivation, and so much more. We should aim to be the best we could be and that is nearly impossible without sleep.

One app that I’ve been using lately is Pzizz. It’s really helped me with scheduling my bedtime and my morning alarm.

Fourth tip is to wear sunscreen. The sun is the most natural way to get Vitamin D but it can also be harmful. Look for an SPF 30 or higher and remember to reapply every few hours.

& last but not least is stay active. Whether it’s by taking walks by the beach, working out in the morning, playing sports, playing tag with the kids, swimming. Any outdoor activity is a good activity.

I hope these tips help you maximise your time off. Enjoy yourselves.
