Three Tips For Staying Healthy This Summer With Wellness Coaching From IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health, Honolulu, Hawaii

While you can't always predict how your body will feel from day-to-day, there are things you can do to stay healthy. Whether it's walking a few extra steps a day, changing your eating habits, or improving your exercise regimen, living a healthier lifestyle is a goal that can be reached by virtually anyone. Yet, during the summer season, it's easy to forget how fragile your health is. But with the right tips and wellness coaching from IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health you can avoid becoming ill.

In order to help you achieve better health this summer, here are three simple ways to enhance your lifestyle:

  • Walk, Don't Drive. Although the temptation may be high to get where you want to go on a set of wheels during summer heat, it is actually more beneficial to your health if you walk. Research has shown that regular walking will only improve your heart, but it also lowers the risk for diseases such as type 2 diabetes, dementia, and osteoporosis. The more physical benefits of walking also include keeping your weight under control, toning your leg and thigh muscles, and boosting your vitamin D levels.
  • Enhance Your Nutrition. During the summer many people like to eat foods that are sticky and sweet. Opt instead to replace them for real whole fresh foods and greens. There is also an abundance of farmer's markets this time of year where you can get fresh fruits and vegetables to add more value to your diet. Healthy summer foods include corn, tart cherries, tomatoes, watermelon, raspberries, and blueberries.
  • Stay Active. One of the most refreshing things about more sunshine is having the ability to enjoy outdoor activities. Take full advantage during the summer season by running more throughout the week, or engaging in a few of your favorite sports activities. If you need a little assistance coming up with a plan, IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health can help you formulate a specific exercise and lifestyle plan in collaboration with your primary care physician through the Exercise and Lifestyle Prescription service.

In addition to health services, IMUA Orthopedics, Sports, & Health also offers sports and orthopedics services to help people lead healthier lifestyles.
