Summer starts here! Read on for the latest feelgood advice on using the sunshine to your advantage and getting a wellbeing hit that lasts all year

Hello, sandals and sundresses – Summer’s here and we can’t wait to get outside and soak it up. And neither can our health. The sunshine months boost our levels of vitamin D, now proven to be vital for immune function, bone strength and even to help protect against some cancers. Studies have found the warm weather is a healthy lifestyle motivator, making us twice as active, with just a five-minute walk in the sun having a positive effect on self-esteem and mood. So here’s how to make the most of the great Summer health giveaway…

10-minute workout

Try these three uplifting, energising and healthboosting yoga poses – ideal for the park or garden. Just 10 minutes and you’re done!

Downward Dog

This rejuvenating move is great for core strength and relieving back pain.

1.    Start on your hands and knees, your wrists below your shoulders and your knees below your hips. Spread your palms out and keep your toes tucked under.

2.    Exhale and lift your knees away from the floor towards the sky so that your body makes an upside-down V shape.

3.    Keep your feet flat on the floor, your hands turned slightly inward with fingers spread and arms extended.

4.    Hold pose for 3-5 breaths; return to original position and repeat.

The Warrior II

Builds stamina in your legs, opens the hips, and strengthens your back.

1.    Step one leg forward so legs are wide apart, front foot pointing forward and back foot at a 45° angle to front foot.

2.    Put your hands on your hips and turn your hips to face sideways.

3.    Bend your front leg until the thigh is parallel to the ground and the knee is over the ankle.

4.    Raise your arms outwards until level with your shoulders, palms down. Breathe deeply and bring your gaze to travel over the middle finger of the front hand. Remain for five slow breaths, then repeat on the other side.
