Whenever in doubt, take the vacation. Please. And although tropical, hot, sandy vacations, with an abundance of freshly cut cold coconuts, are always appreciated, I know they aren’t always in the budget. But hey, if you have time off of work, take it. Go on a road trip, take a staycation, keep your eyes peeled on the travelzoo top 20 list (killer deals), subscribe to Groupon/Living Social travel emails (I found an all inclusive resort in Costa Rica…get this, 2 people, 3 nights $280. I missed the deal, but still.) Travel is possible, both near and far.

So, let’s all make an effort to take time to get away and relax. Even for just one day, or afternoon…or hour.

SWELL Eats: Watermelon Batido

watermelon batido650
There is something about fruit and summer that makes the best combination EVER. After warm sunny days at the beach, a cold drink and fruit is all that I crave. Naturally, fruit drinks are a must! One of my favorite warm weather drinks is a Watermelon Batido. This Costa Rican style smoothie is light, refreshing, and naturally sweet. It’s the perfect drink for a hot summer day and the best part is that it’s extremely easy to make. This recipe only has three ingredients (two of which are water). So get your blender out and try one of these healthy and delicious summertime drinks!

2 Cups Chopped Watermelon (rinds removed)
1 Cup Ice
¾ Water

Blend, serve, Enjoy!!

You know the saying, “I need some air”. Well, odds are, you really do. Humans are made to love being outside. Just think of how great you feel after going for a walk, taking a nap in a park, reading a book under a tree, a day at the beach (that’s a no brainer), eating outside, or switching up things so your workout is outside. Fresh air is kind of sweet like that. It’s an instant mood lifter.

So, make it a point to go get some fresh air, not just if you are feeling sick or have the spins, but as a daily way to make your overall well being better. Rain or shine, beach or no beach. Fresh air is fresh air. So get out from behind a screen, put that phone down, and go get some.
