Autumn has arrived, and with it comes shorter days and fall foliage! With less daylight and more seasonal gatherings, it can sometimes feel like there isn’t enough time for ourselves. But this is the time to be mindful about making self-care a priority. Here are 8 ways to maintain your wellbeing during the Fall.
To begin with, you get most of your Vitamin D from the sun, and as our days become shorter, your Vitamin D intake decreases.
Take time to schedule out your days. Schedule out time for your friends and family as well as important work meetings, to ensure that you are keeping a balanced work-life style.
Next, look into ways to boost your immune system. You can do this by drinking plenty of water, washing your hands often, and eating nutritious foods.
Protect your body from the dropping temperatures. Whether you decide on going apple picking or trick-r-treating with your family, staying warm and cozy can help you stay healthy for the rest of the holiday season!
Streaming services like Netflix and Hulu makes it easier for many to watch a movie in the comfort of their own home. While you’re busy in your day to day life, you may not have time to watch movies, but you can use this time to catch up on some TV shows or new blockbusters!
It can be easy to stay inside and lounge around all day, but it’s important to get in some movement throughout the day! Inactivity from being inside over the cooler months causes stagnation of the lymphatic system, slows down our circulation and metabolism, and weakens the immune system. Some simple activities can involve raking leaves, shoveling show, or apple picking!
