Staying Healthy at Summer Festivals
Summer Time and the living is easy… Hundreds of thousands of people will be flocking to festivals to enjoy long weekends full of music, interesting speakers, open-air theatre, outdoor dance and hopefully sunshine!
The festival season is a time to let our hair down and enjoy ourselves, but that doesn’t mean we should neglect our health. Follow our simple tips to look after your mind and body ensure you return home as healthy and well as when you left. Make room in your bag for these boosting and hydrating snacks to keep you healthy, happy, and energized all day and late into night.
Supplements – Try adding supplements to juice or water for that extra hint of goodness: Echinacea, Ginseng, and Guarana.
Summer Berries – Add to your festival packing list. Summer berries are packed with water, fibre, and B vitamins to keep you feeling fresh and energized. They will last well in your cooler and there is no need to chop or slice; just pop a handful in your mouth for a big boost.
Coconut Water – Overflowing with potassium, coconut water is great when you’ve been out late or you’re just busy running around in the sun. It helps to settle an upset stomach, aids digestion, is great for the skin and boosts hydration – making it the ultimate hangover cure for the morning after the night before.
Citrus – High levels of vitamin C will help keep you healthy amongst the large festival crowds. Grapefruit and orange slices make a refreshing and delicious snack, but lemon provides the most benefits. Lemons have strong antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers, as well as providing digestive aid and liver cleanser.
Almonds – If you are starting to feel weak or fatigued, grab a handful of almonds. A great source of almonds will also help to stabilize your blood sugar levels, if you have been over indulging in sugary alcoholic drinks.
Bananas – Laden with potassium and magnesium, bananas are an ideal way to get your electrolytes up. They also keep your bowels healthy, provide nutrients that regulate heart rhythm and have vitamin compounds for eye health.
