We like to keep things simple because we believe that’s the secret to success!
Here we share 3 Simple Summer Self Care tips that we feel are among the most vital! Muscles become easily depleted in the heat, so keep these few things in mind to prevent pain this Summer (aside from getting regular Massage & Myotherapy that is;)
Summer is associated with fatigue and burn out so the cooler elements become more vital over these months.
Nutritionally this means we need to eat foods with higher water content for hydration.
1. Keeping up fluids becomes even more important now so as to avoid joint stiffness and muscle tightness. Water is also needed to cushion both organs and joints as well as lubricate and keep us mobile.
In Traditional Medicine, good “water element” foods include seaweed, kidney beans, cashews, fermented food and soy sauce as well as salad vegetables like cucumber (known to reduce high blood pressure and restore potassium and magnesium) and celery, which is especially good for joints.
Another fantastic way to get plenty of nutrients is to invest in a juicer if you don’t have one. Some of our favourite juice combinations are Carrot, Apple & Ginger or Carrot, Apple, Beetroot and Lemon. Add mint, cucumber, celery and ginger to any juices and we trust you will love the creation.
