Not only is summer a fun season to enjoy activities with our family and friends, it can also be great for our health.

It comes to no surprise that people are usually happier in the summer because the weather is warmer, days are longer nicer and we can do more outdoors than in the winter, where we tend to huddle up in our homes.  There are beach concerts, outdoor restaurants, pool parties, and barbeques to keep us connected to the outside world.  Believe it or not, summer not only improves our health but also can boost our work life and love life.
