What can you do to feel good right now? Get moving!
Physical activity releases feel-good endorphins and dopamine, burns calories, helps to regulate the body, and promotes healthy digestion. Our bodies are designed to keep moving throughout the day. Being active consistently can also improve moods, decrease anxiety, and maintain healthy joints.
The best physical activity is the one you’ll do consistently. In this resource—straight from our Thrive in 65 collection—you’ll find a list of activities that are fun and easy to begin. You’ll also learn more about all the wonderful benefits of physical activity. Enjoy reading How Physical Activity Supports Digestion
Are you drinking enough water everyday to stay fully hydrated? How about consuming enough
The answer depends on you—how active you are, whether or not you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, and how many other hydrating fluids you drink throughout the day (herbal teas, green tea, and bone broth all count).
A good rule of thumb is to drink between 25 and 50 percent of your bodyweight in fluid ounces each day—and more if you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, or very active. To support healthy hydration, you also need to have the right electrolyte balance.
Find out more about how much you need to drink, what to drink, and how to ensure you get the electrolytes you need for optimal hydration in this resource from our Thrive in 65 collection, How Much Water Do You Need?
By eating the right foods as part of an “ancestral diet,” you can enjoy robust health and more than enough energy for all your fun summer activities.
People use the term “ancestral diet,” and variations like “ancestral eating,” to mean many different things.
Ancestral eating is a principle that encompasses a variety of different types of diets, all of which can be called “ancestral diets.” They include whole and unprocessed foods, healthy animal protein and fat, fresh and local ingredients, sustainably grown and raised crops and animal products, and non-GMO and pesticide-free foods.
Ancestral eating gives you abundant options for delicious, nourishing, and wellness-inspired foods to eat! If your great-grandparents could eat it, odds are it falls under these traditional patterns.
Read What Is An Ancestral Diet in our Thrive in 65 collection to find out how to cultivate an ancestral eating protocol that includes foods available to you locally, that meets your health needs, and that’s aligned with your heritage, lineage, or culture.
What’s better than biting into a ripe, juicy peach on a beautiful summer afternoon?
“Seasonal eating” has become trendy but in years past it was just called “eating.” Before the invention of modern food preservation and the ability to transport food around the world, people always ate a seasonal diet.
And it wasn’t only about food availability. There were important health benefits to eating foods that were in-season and harvested at their peak. Traditional preservation methods, like fermentation, also offered additional health benefits that many people are missing in their diets today.
Your summer’s about to get a whole lot tastier…and healthier!

How much more would you exercise this summer…if it felt like play?
You know exercise is good for your physical and mental health, but maybe the way you’ve been exercising is boring or hard to fit into a hectic schedule in the first place.
There’s great news…
Moving your body—which can bring so much joy and wellness—doesn’t have to be all about repetitive
movements or exercise routines that feel miserable.
In fact, we think movement should be fun!
In this inspiring interview from the Price-Pottenger Journal of Health and Healing, Darryl Edwards, creator of the Primal Play Method, tells how to incorporate fun movement into your life and enjoy its therapeutic effects. Dive in!
You’ve learned a lot about ancestral eating and lifestyle choices since Step 1. And about specific steps you can take to turn this summer into the best one of your life (so far…).
Now, you might be wondering which specific diet will be most beneficial for you.
With so many options out there, and new diet fads coming along every year, how can you know?
No diet is a perfect fit for everyone all the time. You’re genetically unique and that includes your nutrition needs. Which diet is best for you? That will be determined by your age, activity level, health conditions, access to food, and many other factors. And the dietary framework that fits for you this summer might not be best for you next summer.
In this Thrive in 65 resource, you’ll start to determine which diet will help you live your best summer ever. Remember, no one knows your body better than you do.
