The 4th of July this year is on a Tuesday, inconveniently wedged in the middle of a workweek. Sometimes it takes a holiday to force us to take some time off from work. Needless to say, most of us can use a little time off to relax and unwind. In other words, you and your family can enjoy yourselves and stay healthy doing so.
Enjoying the holidays does not require spending a lot of cash. There are plenty of inexpensive ways to have fun. It’s equally important to recharge yourself to avoid burnout.

Stay Fit & Exercise
Take advantage of the summer weather and jump on your beach cruiser or put on your running shoes. Getting out doors is the key. Downtime in between work and school is optimal for getting fit. Indeed, it’s especially nice to enjoy the nice summer weather, but also soak up the sun and get some natural dose of Vitamin D. Studies show that outdoor activities help boost your mood. Research concludes that outdoor activities and sports primarily benefit youth both physically and mentally. You can even schedule group exercise like going for a hike with some friends, participating in stroller-moms power walks, going for a group run or group road biking. Hey, and if you love the sand and ocean, why not play a round or two of volleyball?
