Summer of Bliss! Self Care Tips!

Summer is a season of warmth, growth and abundance: a perfect opportunity to check in with yourself and find abundance in your day to day life. We believe that self care should be simple, but we also know that it’s nice to switch things up sometimes! So, in the spirit of a new season in full swing, here are some tips for a summer full of growth!

Incorporate Cold Showers

While it may not seem like an enjoyable experience at first, the benefits of cold showers are too notable to ignore! From improved circulation to skin and hair health, cold showers can refresh your whole being. Our favorite benefit of cold showers is their effect on anxiety and depression. Cold showers have been proven to release endorphins and reduce stress while improving mood. So, on a hot summer day, do your body a favor and take a cold shower to experience the benefits of this simple, but effective self care habit. 

Pro tip: Start with a warm shower and gradually decrease the temperature to enjoy the full benefits of a therapeutic cold shower. 

Hydrate with Lavender Lemon Bliss

Staying hydrated is crucial for maintaining health and wellness, especially during the summer. Some studies estimate that over half of the adult U.S. population is chronically dehydrated. In a season of warm air and high humidity, it is more important than ever to stay hydrated! Crunchy Hydration’s Lavender Lemon Bliss sparkling water is the perfect beverage to incorporate into your daily hydration routine. While offering the hydrating benefits of himalayan salt and water, it is also packed with other calming ingredients. With a soothing blend of 50mg of CBD, 200mg of L-theanine, and calming herbs like lavender and lemon balm, it is sure to cool the body and the mind on a hot summer day. 

Pro tip: Chill your Lavender Lemon Bliss in the refrigerator and pour into a wine glass to enjoy as a delicious, non-alcoholic nightcap. 

Enjoy Plenty of Vitamin D with Outdoor Yoga

Getting outside and soaking up the sun is essential for both physical and mental health. While on a hot summer day it can be difficult to go outside, much less workout, it can be incredibly beneficial! Next time you need to get a workout in, but don’t want a high intensity sweat, try some slow flow yoga outside in the sun! With an ice cold Crunchy Hydration in hand and a spot with a breeze, outdoor yoga can be the perfect way to incorporate movement and sunlight into your busy summer days. 

Pro Tip: Set a movement alarm during busy days. When your alarm goes off, grab a yoga mat, fill a tumbler with a refreshing Crunchy Hydration, and find a spot in your backyard or in a local park. Whether you have 5 minutes or 50, take the time you have to be present in the moment, soak up the sun, and listen to your body. 

Embracing self-care this summer is all about creating a routine that refreshes, energizes, and relaxes you. By incorporating cold showers, outdoor yoga and Crunchy Hydration into your daily life, you can achieve a state of bliss every day. Stay hydrated, stay healthy, and enjoy the abundance of what summer has to offer with Crunchy!
