5 Ways To Get The Summer Body You’ve Always Wanted

Struggling trying to get the perfect bikini body? Here are five pointers to help get your summer body


Going to the beach means it's time to bring out the bathing suits again. For me personally, I feel very insecure at the start of summer in my bathing suits. A good way to make you feel more comfortable and confident with your bodies in bathing suits is by working out. Working out helps me feel more confident and comfortable, and I hope that you can use working out to make you feel the same way.

1. Make a workout plan. 

It can be very easy to not feel motivated to work out when you do not have a set workout plan. A way to help you to remember to workout and feel motivated to is by making a set workout schedule. If you know exactly which workouts to do on each day, there’s less of a chance you will skip them. This will ultimately lead to you getting your dream summer body.

2. Change your eating habits. 

Even if you work out everyday, if you don't have the right nutrition in line it can be harder to make changes in weight. A good way to stay healthy is by eating protein shakes. They fill you up, and are good for your body. Surprisingly, eating a lot of smaller, healthier meals a day also helps. Many people believe that eating less will help them loose weight. Yet, skipping meals slows down your metabolism, essentially making you gain weight. Therefore, these smaller healthier meals increase your metabolism and help you see changes in your body.

3. Go on a run. 

Even though many people do not enjoy running, for those you you who don't mind it, going running is a great way to loose weight. Personally, I love the endorphin high you recieve after you run. It keeps me motivated and driven throughout the day. For those who do not like running, power walking is a good alternative. Or if you have a gym membership, a stair master is a machine that works your legs without the need to run.

4. Workout even when on vacation. 

One major reason that people to stop working out is when they go on vacation. This is because, when they come back, they do not pick off where they left off with their workout routine. A way to prevent this is by working out when you are on vacation. You can moderate the workouts to make them easier and faster. Yet, keeping your routine will pay off in the long run, and will keep you on track.

5. Set your expectations in the right place. 

Every body is truly beautiful. If you set your expectations to only loose a couple of pounds or no weight at all at first, that is okay. And when you hit those small milestones then you will continue to workout and hit more small milestones that you desire to make. It doesn’t help to tell yourself that you are going to loose a massive amount of weight, because when you do not hit those milestones you will feel worse about yourself. Working out is supposed to do the opposite and make you feel confident and comfortable in your body.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.
