Self-care in summer is every bit as important as in the colder months but something we rarely think about while we’re trying to squeeze every last drop out of the good weather.

We all know to be safe with our skin in sun without having to be lectured (or at least we should do) but are probably still guilty of not getting enough sleep, cramming too much in, and definitely of not drinking enough water.

Given the host of summer sins we inflict on ourselves at this of year it is vital to be mindful of how we treat our bodies.

With that in mind, life coach Emma Kehoe has five key tips to make sure that your body is getting everything it needs this summer.

The Instagram queen has teamed up with Deep RiveRock for the launch of their ‘immune system’ range and has some strong feelings on self-love.

‘For me, self-love is all about priortising yourself and putting your health first – whether it’s working towards your fitness goals, taking ownership of your time, or making small changes to improve your hydration and nutrition.’

To that end, Emma has five key pointers that we should be having a think about right now… and which don’t require that much effort.

1)Hydrate

A simple, yet often forgotten tool for wellbeing – staying hydrated. By simply drinking two litres of water each day,  you can increase your energy levels, help your body to stave off infections, improve sleep, mood cognitive function, improve your skin and hair, even support weight loss – the list is endless. Put this on the top of your To-Do list for general wellbeing.

2) Prioritise relaxation

It’s no secret that stress levels can negatively impact your immune system and overall wellbeing, so taking active steps to relax are vital.

In an increasingly virtual world, why not book time in your day for breaks away from your screen? Do something every day that helps you unwind -reading, walking, listening to a podcast, whatever brings you joy.

And remember – just because the world has begun to re-socialise again doesn’t mean that you have to! Don’t feel guilty about taking that duvet day if that’s what your body needs.

3) Sleep

For many, this is easier said than done but the research is undeniable – getting your 7-9 hours of sleep each night plays an essential role in supporting your defence against illness.

Avoid caffeine later in the afternoon, digitally detox at least an hour before going to bed, and stick to a regular bedtime. Your body will thank you for it.

4) Gratitude

Did you know that you can simply boost your immune system with a healthy dose of gratitude?

It’s true, in fact, it has been scientifically proven to boost blood cells! Optimistic people are not only healthier but have also been shown to be more successful in life but like any other skill, gratitude must be practiced.

Start by writing down three things you are grateful for at the end of each day. I promise that you will see benefits in no time.

5) Vitamins and minerals

I won’t lecture you. You already know that you need to eat your fruit and veg! If you’re not managing to get your five a day there are other ways to get those vital nutrients that support immunity.

Take a daily supplement – or easier still grab a bottle of Deep RiverRock’s new fruity range, now with added vitamin B6 or Zinc. B6 and Zinc are proven to support a healthy immune system, so Deep RiverRock’s new range can give you that boost you need while on the go.*

*Disclaimer: At Deep RiverRock, we like to tell it how it is. A little extra Zinc or Vitamin B won’t give you a six-pack or prepare you to climb Everest, but it all helps towards supporting your immune system in the long run.
