There are so many reasons to love summer and the list can be endless; warmer weather, sunny days, school holidays and quality time with the family, longer hours to enjoy the day fully and pack in as much as possible, a quieter city as well as an upcoming holiday!
A holiday broadens your horizons, gives you a pause from everyday life and most importantly, improves your health from top to toe- studies actually prove it! Recent findings suggest that tourists experienced more positive emotions on holiday than at home. These positive emotions help lower the stress hormone cortisol, shown to help reduce blood pressure and support sharper thinking.
There are many surprising ways to help boost your wellbeing while being at home too! One of which involves taking care of your ‘whole self’ and this starts now. Being more active and generally eating a healthier diet can be part of your new routine. Helping your body reduce the stress response and create more positive emotions can definitely be achieved through the right kind of foods and activity.
