Changing seasons can be tough on your health! Large fluctuations in weather and temperature lead to different levels of activity, clothing, moods, and motivation. Don't let the Fall get the best of you this year! We have a few helpful tips to help you prepare so you can enjoy this beautiful season!
Switch Your Bedding
A great way to prepare for colder weather is to switch your bedding. You don't have to go straight to flannel sheets either. Layering blankets or having a medium weight quilt at the foot of the bed is a great way to get ready for cooler nights.
Get Cold & Flu Season Ready
Do what you can to stay healthy this cold and flu season. Daily doses of Vitamin C will help strengthen your immune system and can be simply taken by drinking OJ, eating an orange or taking a Vitamin C supplement.
Fall is the time to rejuvenate body, mind and spirit. Get a massage after your run. Learn to meditate. Take an art class. Treat yourself not just with exercise but other activities that promote wellness so you can feel good physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Deal with darkness
The best way to enjoy fall is to exercise outdoors. But it is getting darker earlier, and staying dark later in the morning, so be smart and safe.
Buy in-season veggies, such as beets, broccoli and Brussels sprouts
Not to mention cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, eggplant, kale and squash. An abundance of tasty autumn vegetables makes it easy to reap the benefits of a plant-based diet, such as diabetes prevention, hypertension control, heart health and more. One of the best way to enjoy fall veggies is by roasting them with just a little oil, salt and pepper.
