5 Ways to Stay Active and Get Outside This Summer

With kids home for the summer it’s easy to lose sight of our health and fitness goals. Sometimes it’s sounds better to just curl up on the couch, where it’s cool, and have lazy days with the kids. Those days are nice to have here and there, but it’s important for the kids and mom and dad to stay active. I’ve got 5 ways to stay active and get outside this summer, with some excellent products that are sure to help!

AfterShokz Trekz Air Open-Ear Headphones-2

The first item on my list is my favorite item, and with very good reason. One of the ways to stay active for me is by having music! I love music and when I get lost in a beat, I forget about time and how hard things are. So if I’m working out, music is a must and AfterShokz Trekz Air Open-Ear Headphones makes it all that much sweeter! Plus, I’m in love with the new Canyon Red color for summer!

AfterShokz Trekz Air Open-Ear Headphones

My oldest told me he’d go running every day this summer and it hasn’t happened yet, but our new AfterShokz Trekz Air Open-Ear Headphones are definitely good incentive to get him going. Now if he’d just get over being a shoe snob. A couple of things I love about these open-ear headphones are how lightweight they are while providing excellent sound! The second is that because of how light they are, and their shape, they don’t actually press on the ear or inside the ear. The rest lightly in front of the year for maximum comfort. I’m super picky about headphones because of my sensitive ears so these are my absolute new favorites! Because of the sound placement, you can also hear the world around you so you’re not completely shut out, which for me is important as a mom of 4. Use code CANYON30 for $30 off Trekz Air headphones and you’ll be all set!

Brew Dr. Kombucha

I have to admit that I had been leery of Kombucha because my husband tried it once and thought it tasted awful. Then I didn’t try it again until I received Brew Dr. Kombucha. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect either because I was just diagnosed with gastritis and a possible stomach ulcer. After doing a bunch of research I’ve learned that kombucha can be great for creating a healthy gut because of the healthy bacteria it has due to the fermentation process. To top it off, I was pleasantly surprised with the taste of Brew Dr. Kombucha, especially the Strawberry Basil. 

Brew Dr. Kombucha

The Strawberry Basil is deliciously refreshing with a green tea with strawberries and two types of basil. Kombucha is a fermented tea. Brew Dr. Kombucha is live and active, 100% RAW and unpasteurized. I know people who swear by it’s effects, but how does this relate to staying active this summer? For one, how can anyone be active if they’re having tummy issues? Just not very likely or easy. Also, each herb in the kombucha recipe is noted for its ability to assist in mental clarity and focus.

Heliocare® Daily Use Antioxidant Formula

The next product I want to introduce is said to help you have younger looking skin – sign me up for that! For those who spend a lot of time in the sun, it can do serious sun damage if you’re not careful. Among protecting with sunscreen, you can try something like this Heliocare® Daily Use Antioxidant Formula. It’s natural, vegan, gluten-free, free of artificial dyes and best of all, dermatologist-recommended.

Heliocare contains Fernblock® PLE Technology, an exclusive and powerful antioxidant extract that is naturally derived from the extract of Polypodium leucotomos (PLE), a tropical fern native to Central and South America that aids in eliminating free radicals to maintain younger-looking, more resilient skin.*

Skratch Labs Drink Mixes, Energy Chews & Energy Bar

Among the ways to stay active are Skratch Labs Drink Mixes, Energy Chews & Energy Bars. I’ve been slightly anemic, vitamin deficient and weak in the recent months so I can use all the energy and help I can get. How are we to stay active and healthy without energy? With a little extra help from the delicious energy chews and Sport hydration drink mix from Scratch Labs, you can complete the outdoor activities you love doing! Hydrate with the Sport hydration drink mix and then use the Sport Recovery drink mix for after workouts. Each of the products are made with health in mind as they are Non GMO, Gluten free, dairy free, vegan. I personally loved the energy chews and could easily add those into my daily regimen. Take 20% off your entire order with code: TRYSKRATCH.

T-Rex® Tape

Have a favorite piece of workout equipment or outdoor game, but it’s seen better days? As a family we love playing corn hole outside and one of our boards got broken at the 8th grade graduation dance I lent it to. Shocker, right? Unlike ordinary duct tapes, T-Rex® Tape;is a ferociously strong tape and is great for patching up those favorite items that may be looking a little haggard. T-Rex Tape is perfect for outdoor items because it’s weather-resident, plus it can stand up to dust and dirt! If camping is your game, then I’d definitely recommend bringing a roll of T-Rex Tape along because it will come in handy!

5 Ways to Stay Active and Get Outside This Summer

Wherever your summer takes you, I hope you’ll give these products a whirl because they’re all sure to help you stay active and get outside!
