Most of us tend to be more active outdoors in the summer, when it's easy to get out and walk or participate in our favorite sports. Make a vow NOW that you won't let the coming cooler weather keep you indoors—just bundle up a little (or a lot) and get out there to hike, bike, jog or stroll all year long. Summer is also great for de-stressing during long lazy weekend days, so keep that spirit going by adding some "hanging out" time to your days off year-round. Don't give in to the temptation to pack every minute of the school year with organized activities. Instead, let everybody get a little bored sometimes and see where the day takes them in every season. If your local farmers markets close up shop after the summer, as most do, you can still savor the healthy delights of fresh produce by indulging in the fruits and vegetables of the season. Sample a variety of colorful squashes and apples in the fall, root veggies and citrus in winter, and leafy greens when spring sets in. Enjoy the dog days of summer!
