With Spring well and truly upon us, we feel confident there are many people reading this and beyond who are feeling the same as us; Summer is almost here, and we want to be ready for its arrival! So take off your winter coats and get swimsuit season ready! Summer is only around the corner! In fact, the first day of summer is June 21st which doesn’t give you long to prep yourself.

Following what has been a turbulent year for us all, there is no doubt that we deserve a summer filled with fun adventures and memories with those who we have been separated from for some time.  

While it is all-important to plan in advance what you will do in the coming months – especially as most establishments are bookings-only – there are also some other things that should be considered when wanting to get yourself ready for the summer.  

For those who are in the process of getting themselves summer-ready, you have found yourself in the right place. Detailed below are some of our top tips, which can be implemented into a range of lifestyles. 

Whether you plan to have a more low-key few months or are itching to make the most of the time we have missed out on due to lockdowns, we feel confident you will find something of value here. Read on for more!  

Introduce a Routine Now  

It goes without saying, but wanting to be prepared for the coming months, means putting things in place now in preparation. When wanting to get into a routine, it is crucial that you begin early, for you would be able to iron out any creases that appear along the way while also having something to look forward to at the end of it. 

Mainly if you want to lose weight or gain muscle mass in time for the summer months, this will take some time. Results like these do not happen overnight and take some prolonged effort on your part.  

Losing weight over time is healthier than going on a crash-course diet, and you are more likely to keep the weight off in the long run. Not to mention, there are numerous other benefits to eating a healthy diet and regularly exercising beyond that of losing weight and gaining muscle.  

Adjusting Your Diet 

While this might be something that some people do in preparation for the summer months anyway, we felt it was worth mentioning all the same. As the warmer months approach us, bringing with them (hopefully) sunnier and warmer weather, it is essential we make changes that benefit us.  

When we spend more time in the warmer weather, we are prone to sweating, dehydrating you in the long term. Ensuring you are drinking enough fluids while out and about, and replenishing anything that has been lost, is crucial. The last thing you want is to become unwell from not taking care of yourself! 

Furthermore, it is also crucial that you are eating enough food throughout the day as well. Mainly if you have lots of activities planned and will be spending hours at a time out of the house, you want to make sure you have the energy to keep going.  

Eating a healthy breakfast or taking something on the go with you will ensure that you are correctly set up for what you have planned in your day. Shake That Weight provide a range of healthy breakfast shakes and other items packed full of nutrients, ideal for a day on the go!  

Get Bronzed Beautiful

Everybody feels better with a lovely glow to them. You look healthier, sun kissed and fantastic so what a better way than to get bronzed in preparation for summer! If you’re happier with the way you look, this will give you a little boost of confidence too.

Taking Time for Yourself 

This might seem a bit of an odd suggestion to some people reading this but hear us out! It has been a tumultuous time for us all over the last twelve months and beyond.  

While there are undoubtedly many people who are excited for things to go back to normal in the next few months, there will also be some people who feel somewhat more apprehensive at the idea of socialising in large groups once more.  

Whether you are excited about reuniting with other people or are more nervous, it is crucial that you take some time for yourself and look after your wellbeing during this time and beyond.  

Implementing breathing techniques during particularly stressful situations or setting aside a chunk of your day to do some yoga and other wellbeing activities are both ideal ways of looking after yourself.  

This must be remembered moving forward, for it will be an incredibly overwhelming time for some. The last thing you want is to feel burnt out in quick succession!  

Limber Up and Get a Massage

What a better way to prep yourself ready for a bit of summer lovin’? Feel relaxed and get a massage! You’ll feel so much better within yourself as you won’t be carrying any worries with you as they’ve all been massaged away! You’ll feel at ease with yourself, making others feel at ease with you too. So get rid of those painful knots and just chill.

Moisturise Away Imperfections

The summer weather will only dry out your skin, so treat it! Moisturising is the best thing ever that you can do. It’s quick, easy and simple and you’ll thank yourself later for it. Your skin looks ten times younger and won’t become affected underneath that glowing sun. You’ll look more radiant and healthy. Your skin will also look cleansed and hydrated, making you feel a lot happier in yourself.

Get the Essentials on Standby 

Whether you are planning to make a trip abroad as and when we can or are opting for days out across the country, it is crucial you have the items that you need beforehand. This includes the likes of sun cream, bug spray, and a towel for those sandy toes!  

One thing we can be sure of, this summer is going to be one that we have been dreaming of and is undoubtedly one that we deserve and then some!
