March 22: National Goof Off Day – Today is a day to just goof off. Find a fun, silly activity you can enjoy. Yoga would be an awesome choice, because yoga doesn’t have to be super serious, it can be lighthearted and fun! Hug a tree, do some cartwheels in the grass…. Be a goof!
Keeping hydrated is an important part of staying healthy. Water promotes cardiovascular health, keeps your body cool, helps muscles and joints work better and keeps skin supple. Here is this week’s hydration recipe:
Cantaloupe, Honey, and Mint Water
½ c water
½ c honey
4 c (about 2 lbs) cantaloupe cut into 1 inch pieces
¼ c fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
2 Tbsp fresh mint leaves
¼ tsp salt
sparkling water or club soda
mint sprigs for garnish
