The benefits of the Summer Season

Some People usually think that summer is not a season to enjoy much but it is not true. In fact the summer season can have a lot of positive benefits on our lives, and here are just a few of them:

Sun is a great source of vitamin D. Everybody is aware of the importance of vitamin D. The only precaution is that try to avoid the time period between 11am to 4pm. Also you may apply sun screen (make sure that it has adequate UVA protection).

Summer is the best time for detoxification. Sweating is key component of this. We do exercise to break a proper sweat all year, but in summer it happens naturally. So allow your body to perspirate naturally, while enjoying out-doors activities.

Summer allows us to walk bare-footed. That’s another benefit for our health. It works like reflexology massage. While walking bare-footed on sand or rocky beaches, we stimulate many pressure points in our feet to stimulate a sluggish area. That is beneficial for better digestion, good immune function, and back- ache healing.

Summer wouldn't be complete without heaping helpings of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, cherries, watermelon, apricots and many others. The best news is these summer picks are as nutritious as they are delicious.

In summer we feel lack of hunger so it is the time to lose the weight and feel light and fresh. Drink a lot of water and eat fresh seasonal fruits and lose weight naturally.
