Our 3 Tips for a Great Summer Night

Get Physical

Readers of our last blog were treated to a number of ways that we’d recommend to get outdoors and have some fun (of course you should always see a doctor beforehand to make sure you’re healthy enough). The activities we recommended spanned quite the range from tossing the baseball in your backyard with the kiddos to taking your dog for a walk to joining a summer league and trying your hand at a new sport.

Therefore the first tip we have for enjoying an awesome summer night is to do something physical outside. It’s a great way to start your evening and it will work up your appetite. Luckily for you, our next tip is all about healthy eating.

Make a Meal

Once you’re done with exercising, it’s time to head back home to make a healthy and delicious meal. Summer time is a great time to break out the grill, so plan a meal that’s full of veggies and protein and you’ll be off to a good start.

Whether you opt for a New York Strip steak and a side of broccoli or you try your hand at grilled chicken kabobs with plenty of bell peppers and onions, we think you’ll agree that summer is a great time to make meat and veggies due to the fact that your grill imparts so much extra flavor, nearly guaranteeing a great meal even if you’ve never used a grill before in your life.

Enjoy Your Family

What’s the perfect way to cap off a summer night? Grab a sparkling water and plan out an activity with the whole family! It could be as simple as curling up in the living room and watching a movie or you could do something more active like playing a game outside.

Or if you’re willing to wait until August 21, you can experience a total solar eclipse. Just be sure that you don’t look directly at the sun, but otherwise this is something you can do with the whole family that everyone will be sure to remember for years to come. That sounds like a huge win to us.
