Welcome to Innergy! This summer, we hope you can enjoy a season that’s filled with health and happiness, balanced and bursting with flavor. To help you get there, let’s explore some summer self-care rituals that can help you in that journey.


The Importance of Summer Self-Care 🌼

Summer is a season of high energy, longer days, and abundant sunshine. While these factors can boost our mood and activity levels, they can also lead to dehydration, fatigue, and stress if not managed properly. Self-care is crucial to maintaining balance and ensuring that we can enjoy the season to its fullest. Here are some essential summer self-care rituals to nourish your body and mind.


1. H2O! Hydrate, Hydrate! 💧

The average human body is between 50 and 75 percent water. With so much of our system made up of this life-giving liquid, it’s no wonder that staying properly hydrated can sometimes feel like a never-ending battle against the summer heat. Proper hydration helps maintain energy levels, improves skin health, and supports overall well-being.

How to max your hydration levels:
Make it Personal: Invest in a good reusable water bottle, one that will keep your water cool and add a splash of color and fun to your day at the same time! You may find when you love your water bottle, those 8 glasses a day will fly by.
Infuse Your Water: To make plain water a bit more exciting and refreshing, try adding slices of cucumber, lemon, mint, or berries to your water for a refreshing twist.
Eat Hydrating Foods: Watermelon, cucumbers, oranges, and strawberries are all packed with water – and a variety of great nutrients – and perfect for summer snacking.


2. Try a Cooling Yoga Routine 🧘‍♀️

Yoga helps regulate body temperature, reduce stress, and improve flexibility. A cooling yoga routine can be particularly beneficial during the summer months.
Three Beginner-Friendly Options:
Child’s Pose (Balasana): A restorative pose that helps you cool down and relax.

Cat-Cow Pose (Marjaryasana-Bitilasana): This gentle flow helps loosen up your spine and melt away tension.

Legs-Up-The-Wall Pose (Viparita Karani): A calming pose that promotes relaxation and reduces swelling in the legs.


3. Pamper Your Skin with a Refreshing Care Routine🌿

Summer can be harsh on your skin, with increased exposure to UV rays and heat. A good skincare routine can protect your skin and keep it glowing.
Easy steps your skin will love:
Sunscreen is your BFF: Apply a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher sunscreen every day, even on cloudy days.
Hydrate Your Skin: Use lightweight, hydrating moisturizers and serums to keep your skin moisturized without feeling greasy.
Cool Down with Facial Mists: Carry a hydrating facial mist to refresh your skin throughout the day. It’s like a mini air conditioner for your face!


4. Nourish Your Body with Seasonal Foods 🍉

Eating fresh locally-grown produce provides essential nutrients and helps you stay energized and healthy.
Kitchen Summer Essentials:
Berries: Packed with antioxidants and vitamins, they are great for snacking or adding to salads and smoothies. Plus, with the number of berry varieties out there, you can always keep it fresh and new!
Leafy Greens: Spinach, kale, and arugula are excellent sources of vitamins and minerals. Spinach in particular can easily be added to smoothies for a green boost with minimal flavor change.
Tomatoes: High in lycopene, tomatoes are perfect for salads, sandwiches, and salsas..
P.s – We recently posted some refreshing summer drinks on Instagram. Let us know what you think, or suggest a favorite drink of your own!


5. Practice Presence and Gratitude 🌸

Summer is such a special time, it’s important to try to make even the simplest of moments count — time in nature or spent with family or even enjoying a delicious freshly made glass of ice tea. To fully appreciate these moments, focus on staying present whenever possible. 
Try These:
Morning Meditation: Start your day with a 5-minute meditation to set a positive tone.
Gratitude Journaling: Stuck in traffic or waiting in line for ice cream? Use that time to mentally list three things you’re grateful for. It could be anything – the delicious ice cream you’re about to devour, the fact that you have functioning air conditioning or maybe a good time spent with a friend!


6. Spice Up Your Days with Outdoor Adventure  🚴‍♂️

Physical activity boosts your mood, improves fitness.
Fun Summer Activities:
Swimming: Cool off and get a full-body workout. It’s a refreshing workout that’s perfect for beating the heat.
Hiking: Explore nature trails and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors. Fall back in love with your city by looking up a new trail you haven’t tried yet, and see your familiar world from a totally new angle.
Cycling: Ride your bike to stay active and enjoy the scenery. If you don’t have a bike of your own, it’s easier than ever to find bike rentals – or even family, friends, or neighbors who would be happy to share! It’s a great way to stay fit while enjoying the summer sun and breeze.


Summer is a time of renewal and vitality. By incorporating these self-care rituals into your routine, you can nourish your body and mind, ensuring you stay vibrant and balanced all season long. With just a few of these easily-achievable tweaks, get ready to make these summer months even more fun and rewarding!
