How to Prepare Your Body for Sunny Days in 8 Easy Steps

How to Prepare Your Body for Sunny Days in 8 Easy Steps
With the sunnier days ahead, it's essential to get our bodies ready for more time spent outdoors. Whether you’re planning to hit the beach, embark on hiking trails, or simply enjoy leisurely walks in the park, proper preparation can make your outdoor experiences more enjoyable and safer. Here are straightforward, practical steps to prepare your body for the sunny days ahead:

1. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
The foundation of outdoor preparedness is staying hydrated. Our bodies lose fluids more rapidly in hot weather, especially when engaging in physical activities. Make it a habit to drink at least eight 8-ounce (250ml) glasses of water a day, and increase your intake on days you spend more time outdoors. Carry a reusable water bottle with you to ensure you’re never without a hydrating source.

2. Skin Protection is Key
Caring for our skin, the body's largest organ, becomes incredibly important, particularly as we expose ourselves more to the sun. Prioritizing the protection of your skin against the damaging effects of sunlight is crucial. 
Opting for Young Living's Mineral Sunscreen Lotion offers a superior choice for safeguarding your skin. Crafted with ingredients derived from nature, including plants and minerals, it delivers robust protection minus any harsh chemicals. 

Moreover, its water-resistant formula ensures it remains your ally, whether you're spending a day at the beach or engaging in outdoor pursuits. Despite its rich texture, you only need to use a small amount, making it both effective and economical

3. Enhance Your Skin with Antioxidant Protection
Firstly, hydration is crucial. Sunny days and outdoor activities can lead to dehydration, which affects our energy levels and overall health. To keep yourself hydrated from the inside out, consider supplementing with Young Living’s NingXia Red. 

This powerful drink is packed with superfruits and essential oils that support energy levels and hydration, making it a perfect addition to your daily routine.


4. Naturally Boost Your Energy
The great outdoors invites more physical activities, making it essential to elevate your energy levels in a natural way. A simple yet effective method is to add a few drops of Peppermint, RC or Eucalyptus Globulus essential oils to your workout towel, offering a refreshing lift just when you need it. These essential oils are excellent for stimulating your senses and providing a natural, consistent energy boost for all your outdoor activities.

 5. Muscle and Joint Support 
Outdoor activities can sometimes lead to muscle soreness. Cool Azul Pain Relief Cream offers a comforting blend of essential oils and natural menthol that provides relief to sore muscles and joints. 

What I love about it is the hot and cold effect on my muscles, and it really helps relax my muscles. Its natural formula can help you stay active and comfortable during your outdoor adventures.

6. Rest and Recover
Giving your body time to rest and recover is crucial. Ensure you're getting enough sleep at night, and consider incorporating soothing essential oils into your evening routine to promote relaxation and recovery. Lavender or Peace and Calming oils, known for its calming properties, can be applied topically or diffused in your bedroom to help you unwind and recharge for the next day.

7. Embrace Natural Insect Repellent
To keep the bugs away without resorting to harsh chemicals, consider incorporating a natural insect repellent into your outdoor prep routine. Young Living’s Insect Repellent is crafted with pure essential oils such as Citronella, Lemongrass, Rosemary, and Geranium—plant-based solutions known for their ability to repel insects naturally. 

Not only is it effective, but it also smells pleasant and is devoid of harsh additives, making it suitable for both children and adults.

8. Immune Support
Lastly, maintaining a robust immune system is critical when spending more time outdoors. Young Living’s Super C Chewable Tablets not only provide the immune support you need but also offer antioxidants to help combat the effects of daily environmental exposure. 

These chewables are a tasty way to support your body’s natural defenses.

In conclusion, preparing your body for sunny days and outdoor activities is all about supporting your hydration, skin, muscles, and immune system. With these Young Living products, you’re not just enjoying the great outdoors; you’re doing it with your health and wellness in the forefront.
