It is no secret that the weather influences our mood. Sunny or rainy days have a different impact on our mood. 

If a gray afternoon makes you feel nostalgic, or a very hot day puts you in a bad mood, imagine what could happen when the seasons are changing. If you live in a country with 4 seasons, you already know that weather changes are more difficult to cope with. The seasonal affective disorder has even been medically recognized  especially between autumn and winter.

Those of us who live in tropical countries only experience two rainy and dry seasons. However, summer in our One Happy Island is intense. In the end, the truth is we all love summer and it has even become a synonym for vacation and rest.

No matter where you live, summer is the hottest season of the year. During the summer the sunlight periods are longer and the nights are shorter.  Many times the heat might make us feel fatigue, so we need to take charge and keep ourselves energetic and active.

At Nature’s Discount, we want to share  some tips so you can prepare for the summer. 

Stay hydrated

Did you know that our body loses about 2 liters of water a day? This amount is even  higher during the summer!

Water is vital for the  body, and it is part of virtually all body functions. When the  temperature reaches over 30 degrees, we must make sure we stay hydrated throughout the day. Our body uses thirst as an alarm signal, but during the summer, it is advisable to drink small doses of water throughout the day to avoid waiting for this alarm to activate.

Protect your skin

Would you like to reach adulthood looking like a raisin? Use sunscreen to keep your skin healthy during summer.

Sunscreen will help you avoid conditions such as skin redness, hyperpigmentation, and sunburns. In addition, it will reduce the risk of wrinkles and even skin cancer. You can even find a sunscreen that contains moisturizing ingredients.

Make sunscreen part of your everyday routine and protect your skin from UV rays to stay young and refreshed. 

Have a good rest

It is common knowledge that resting helps us recover our energy. During the night, our body and cells regenerate after a long day. This is especially helpful during summer days.

A good rest will help you maintain high energy levels, a better mood, and be mentally active. It will even help you keep a more balanced weight.

Eat a balanced diet

High temperatures and fluid loss can result in lack of nutrients.  The good news is that you can recover many of them with a good summer meal.

Make sure your diet includes fruits, they are refreshing, rich in vitamins, and contain a lot of water. Fruits are also rich in carbohydrates that provide energy to our body.

Salads, especially those with green leaves, also provide a large amount of liquid while satisfying our appetite, and nourish your body.

Supplement your diet with vitamins

What happens if you can’t keep a  balanced diet? Supplements can help you obtain those nutrients your meals don’t provide. 

You can find supplements in the form of capsules, pills, powders, and drinks. You will even find some in personal hygiene presentations such as soaps, creams, and shampoos.

All of these supplements  will help you keep yourself healthy and achieve a radiant body during the summer.

At Nature’s Discount, we have the most varied selection of supplements that will cover any of your needs. 

Remember the formula

 water + fruits + rest + supplements = happy summer
