Love au­tumn

As the leaves start to colour, get your mind, body, home and gar­den ready for the new sea­son…

Mind, body and soul

While au­tumn is a beau­ti­ful sea­son full of crisp air and colour­ful leaves, it can leave us feel­ing a bit low, as it’s also the sig­nal that sum­mer has come to a close. Fol­low th­ese healthy tips to keep a happy mind­set through the new sea­son…

Don’t over­book your­self

Ev­ery­thing seems to start at once come Septem­ber. Kids have school and sports, you have dead­lines to meet, and there’s a new yoga class you’ve signed up for. But you don’t need to do ev­ery­thing at once. Rather add things in week by week – that way, the stress of au­tumn busy­ness won’t hit you all at once.

Com­mit to sum­mer well­ness

If you started a new diet or ex­er­cise rou­tine dur­ing the sum­mer, stick to it. Just be­cause it’s au­tumn, doesn’t mean you have to give up your healthy habits. Com­mit to your goals, and, come win­ter, you’ll feel so much bet­ter.

Start boost­ing your im­mu­nity

With the change in weather, get­ting a cold in au­tumn is pretty much in­evitable. Be pre­pared early, and get some reg­u­lar ex­er­cise, stick to a solid sleep sched­ule and keep a bal­anced diet. Try to get some fresh air ev­ery day and keep your vi­ta­min D lev­els up.

Sched­ule mo­ments into your days

At some point in the af­ter­noon, take a five-minute break to breathe and clear your mind. Sip on some wa­ter and have a good stretch. This sim­ple habit can com­pletely al­ter your mood and pro­duc­tiv­ity. Rel­ish time spent in na­ture and en­joy watch­ing the changes of the sea­sons while keep­ing your­self and your fam­ily happy and healthy.

Don’t stop mov­ing
