Summer is a fun time of the year, especially for those with who have an active lifestyle. However, it can also be the time of year where it’s tempting to splurge on piña coladas and lay by the pool rather than keeping up an active and healthy lifestyle. There is nothing wrong with splurging on those things, but it is helpful to add a few extra habits throughout the summer to balance it out. Here are 6 easy ways to have a healthy summer at Craig Ranch in McKinney, TX!

  1. Eat More Berries
    Adding berries, such as blueberries and raspberries, provide a lot of antioxidants and fiber that help with aging, damaged tissues, and keeps cholesterol low. They’re easy to add to a smoothie or yogurt, or you can just eat them as a snack!
  2. Garden
    Gardening has proven to reduce stress and gives people a chance to catch their breath by getting dirty and having their hands into something grounded. Focusing on something tedious, like gardening, can easily change stress levels during the summer.
  3. Outside Fun
