Now that the pain of winter is over, it is time to have fun in the sun. Summer is almost here and you need to prepare yourself for all the entertainment you are going to have. The weather will be great so you can visit the beach, or take a ride on your bicycle down the hill tracks or take a swim under the waterfalls. While you are doing all these activities, you do not want to lose yourself. You need to stay in shape.

Here are three tips to remain in shape during this summer

Get active
Whether you are going out for travelling or staying home this summer, there are no excuses not to stay active. Start with walking up and down the stairs. If you are at home, walk up and down the stairs. If you are travelling somewhere, walk up and down the stairs over there. If you are travelling, there will be historical sites, museums, temples and many other places without elevators. You can have a great time seeing them and also you get the chance to move your muscles. If you are at home, walk around the different rooms. If you are travelling, walk to various locations instead of taking transport.

Buy a bicycle
You can get a bike and ride it down the tracks for an hour or so. If you are travelling, you can ride bikes there. It is a nice idea to ride bikes near the beach or down the roads where you will see beautiful sites. It is a fun way to losing weight because you will not be bored. You can enjoy the bicycle ride. If you ride it, you will not have any pain in your joints whereas other forms of exercise may cause pain in the joints. If you are not comfortable riding the bicycle alone, get a friend and let him ride his bicycle. You can have a race to increase the output. Bicycles enhance the muscle movements.

Do not eat too much
Make sure you do not eat so much that you do not have a single space in your stomach. That does not mean you will starve. Both are bad options for staying in shape. You need to take in fruits and vegetables. Have a protein-rich diet. Protein helps in growth of the body. Hence, it will contribute to staying in shape. Do not buy foods. Try to cook at home. If you are travelling, eat before you go the airport. Avoid buying food from the airport. Try to eat salads every day during this summer.
