If you’re thinking about hitting up some sort of outdoor destination in lieu of the beach this Fourth of July weekend, it’s important to put some thought into what you end up doing — that way you can limit your exposure. After all, we’re still in a global pandemic.

Below, Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center goes over a few tips to get active this July 4th holiday that will serve as a healthy alternative to normal July 4th festivities.

First, if you plan on taking a nature hike, make sure to do that in the early morning. More than likely, everyone else will be going around 9, 10, and 11 AM. If you can be headed back down from your hike by the time all the slackers, late risers, and people who are just getting outdoors because there’s nothing else to do, then you’ll be in fantastic shape, avoid exposure, not to mention the satisfaction of being done with your exercise and nature hike by the time everyone else is getting started.

Eat well this Fourth of July. There are healthy options available to you that will have you feeling better and more energized than a burger or hotdog will leave you feeling. Making sure to stay hydrated instead of having a few too many adult beverages will ensure that you don’t have a hangover on Sunday.

After your weekend, no matter what you do, make sure that you have an active recovery plan. Chiropractic treatment is a great compliment to a healthy lifestyle that will enhance your performance, boost your immune system, and more.
