Autumn has arrived! At the changing of each season it’s always a great idea to check in on your overall health and wellness. Are you on track with your health goals? Are there a few things you can tweak to support your health more fully?
5 Easy Ways to Have a Healthy Fall
Cook up some healthy fall recipes!
Autumn is the season of harvesting, so head out to your local farmer’s market and stock up on seasonal produce. Depending on your region, this is generally a great time to pick up hearty vegetables (think pumpkins, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, acorn squash), root vegetables (like potatoes, turnips, carrots, beets), and dense leafy greens (like kale or chard). Pears, apples, peaches, nectarines, and plums are also wonderful this time of year. Head over to our recipe page to search any of these delightful fall ingredients!
Reassess your sleep.
More and more research has been released that shows the undeniable importance of getting plenty of healthy, natural sleep each night. With longer nights ahead, take a moment to reassess your sleep routine. Are you preparing your body and mind for bed at a decent hour? Do you struggle to get out of bed with less light in the mornings? Use these simple tips to start improving your sleep tonight.
Work on replacing a habit.
Sometimes the best way to let go of bad habits is by replacing them with something healthier. The changing of the seasons is a great time to reflect on things you want to improve in your life. Consider goals you want to reach, then take small steps to build habits around attaining them. Trying to lower your grocery bill each month? Try buying less meat (an expensive purchase), and substitute more vegetables. Want to drink less alcohol? Substitute sparkling water with True Citrus, or have a cup of hot tea with True Lemon when you have a craving. Small steps create big changes.
Find a new way to exercise.
Fall hikes are amazing, and it’s an inexpensive way to exercise (with a view)! Take the family out to a corn maze, go to the park and throw a Frisbee or kick a soccer ball around, or wear some layers and start bike riding. This is a great time of year to start increasing your exercise with something you enjoy doing before the cold of winter hits.
Detox your body.
The new season is a great time to do a cleanse or detox diet. Use guidelines like those from the Whole30 diet, and take anywhere from a week to a full month to reset your body for fall. Doing a cleanse will not only boost your energy, but also help you shed a few pounds and support your immune system for cold and flu season.
However you choose to improve your health this fall, these helpful tips will prepare you for the upcoming season. Check out these additional ways to boost your health and happiness for autumn!
