I don’t know about you, but where I live gets HOT HOT HOT in the summer!  If you don’t have a pool or an ocean near-by, staying cool outside can be tough.  I don’t want to have to stay inside!  I’ve come up with a few ways to beat the summer heat without keeping a bucket of emergency ice cubes nearby.

Staying hydrated in the heat is extremely important!  Sipping on an ice colChelsea Crockett- summer ice cubesd glass of sweet tea or lemonade is the perfect summer drink…until the ice cubs start to melt.  Try freezing tea, lemonade, juice, etc. into ice cube trays to add to your drink.  You can even throw in some fresh fruit.  This way, your drink will never get watered down while you’re trying to stay hydrated!  If you like to work out outside, go early in the morning or late in the evening.  You’ll notice, by going at a cooler time, that your workout will be longer and you’ll have more energy.  Wearing baseball hats on a bad hair day or outside is a must!  Before leaving the house, sprinkle ice cold water on top of your head before quickly placing your hat back on.  This will keep you cooler long.  You can even keep your sunscreen and aloe in the refrigerator for an instant cool down.

Be smart this summer, wear sunscreen, and remember to stay hydrated!  If it’s too hot outside, use your judgment and opt for a trip to the movies or mall!  Have a great summer Insiders!

XOXO,

Chelsea

Working out can be tough.  It’s not only tough physically, but it’s really hard sometimes to fit it into your schedule.  With busy lives, sleeping in and hanging out with friends sounds like a lot more fun than working out when you have free time.  Surprisingly, working out CAN be fun!  I’m going to give you a few simple tips to pass the time while you work out. 

  • Listen to music!

Chelsea Crockett- runningMy favorite thing to do while on a run is to listen to music.  It puts me in a pumped up mood!  Create a “Workout Playlist” with energetic music to get you feeling upbeat during your run.  Every 3 or 4 minutes, you will get to enjoy a new song, which will keep you going.

  • Go outside!

Running on a treadmill can get old.  Although the air conditioning is nice, the run can feel longer than it really is.  Running outside and being around nature will put you in a better mood and make running seem shorter.  You won’t have to run in place.  Go explore!

  • Change up your routine!

Doing the same workout every day is extremely boring.  When you change up your routine, there is something new to look forward to each day.  Change your running route, go to the park, a school, or run the streets for a new experience each time!  Do arm, abs, and leg workouts on different days, so you don’t over work one muscle group.

                Working out is SO good for you, so get off the couch and go run!  Following these simple tips will make working out a little more enjoyable.  Get going Insiders!!!

            Hey everyone!  Because the weather is so nice during this season, it’s perfect for outside activities.  Water parks, camping, and swimming are all perfect things to do during a hot, sunny day in the summer.  One thing you may have not thought of is the drive-in. 

            If you have a drive-in near you, it’s a perfect summer way to see that new movie you’ve been wanting to see.  Whether it’s with your family or your best friends, it’s a fun way to see the film.  My favorite thing about the drive-in is bringing a bunch of snacks for you and your guests to enjoy!  Popcorn, candy, and soda are perfectWink.Chelsea Crockett - Drive-In

            Maybe you can’t access a drive-in near you, but that’s okay!  There’s another creative way to spend your night!  If you take a projector and set it up facing a solid wall or possibly your garage you’ve made your own drive-in movie theater!  You can set out a few blankets or chairs and have a movie night right in your own yard!  Perfect!
