If you’re a yogi fashionista, beach babe or gypsy goddess, you’ve probably already got a green lifestyle that would make Kris Carr and Gabby B proud! Your lunch is filled with avo-toast and you go to hot yoga on the regular. You know where to find all the best fresh, local and organic produce, and you’ve got your fave kombucha tea on special order in bulk from Kombucha Wonder Drink.
When the sun begins to light up the bohemian sky and warm our skin for longer and longer during the summer, and there are so many more fun adventures to go on, sometimes we loose sight of our clean and green routines. Have no fear, boho bella, it only takes a couple of tricks to get and keep your green on in the summer. Every gal deserves to keep their green glow on!
Here are my top 6 baby step tips to maintain your clean and green summer lifestyle.
1. Write it Down, Boho Girl!
Pull out your fave moleskin and pop down all of your healthy meal prep ideas. Being mindful and prepared for the week ahead keeps a goddess’ mind clear and her heart open to all the magical things that might come her way! Take a sweet Sunday evening and write down what you prepare to consume the coming week. This works like a charm and will keep your health plan in check. Don’t fret if you fall of track, the best friend a girl can ever have is herself, so be kind to yourself and check right back in with your plan if you had one two many Ahi tuna tacos or an extra green margarita last Saturday!
2. Move Your Fine Self
Find special and creative ways to get moving, all the time! You don’t have to join a gym to stay active, there are great ways to move everywhere. Whether you’re dancing in your kitchen, taking a jog through the local park, or checking out a new ecstatic movement class downtown, your heart rate is up and that’s all you need! See if you can get creative and find ways to keep moving when you can. Keep moving that beautiful bod, boho girl!
3. Take Adventures to Your Local Farmers Market
The farmers market is home to all things green and clean, so if you haven’t yet checked it out now is the time! From fresh dark green leafies to special healthy tonics, the farmer’s market has you covered in all avenues of health. The best part about the farmer’s market is that it’s totally magical. You may meet a new friend, hear some live music or get to taste test some uber healthy dark chocolate! This one is a must-do, especially in the summer, so go find the nearest one to your home on the double.
4. Flip Things Upside Down in The Morning
Headstands have been known to change a girl’s perspective, reduce stress, increase core, thigh and arm strength, and help with overall happiness. We’ve all got to wonder why everyone doesn’t do headstands every day! Ask your yoga instructor to demonstrate a headstand to you if you’ve never tried it, and start practicing it every morning. The morning is a great time for this super dynamic and wild pose because it starts your day off positive and playful.
5. Walk in the Sunshine with Your Gal Pals
If you’re planning on catching up with your besties for tea or coffee, why not turn it into a walk to somewhere new and adventurous? There’s always a new place where the sun is shining and the birds are chirping to explore with your greatest pals. Pick up a sweet iced chai and break free to the pathways with your girls. You’ll be pumping up your endorphins and getting in a gab sesh all at once.
6. Guzzle Lemon Water in the Morning
Every morning we have a new chance to start fresh, cleanse our beautiful bodies and put fresh, wholesome foods into them. The best way to start your healthy routine off right is to drink lemon water before anything you’ve consumed. This yummy, tart water will cleanse your pipes and leave your body ready for all of the healthy things you will be nurturing it with!
There’s so many ways to keep your lifestyle clean and green in the summer. The best way to do so is keep it fun, light and adventurous. I’m sure you’ve got some great ways that you stay glowing in the summer, and I’d love to add them into my bohemian routine! Tell me all about them in the comments below
