This time of year is always bittersweet- we hate saying goodbye to the long days of sunshine and outside gatherings with friends and family, but we love saying hello to warm sweaters and cuddling by the fireplace.
When the seasons change, it is a great opportunity for us to take stock of where we are and where we want to be. As the weather changes, so do our routines. Your autumn life may look different than your summer one, but that is to be expected. Staying in tune with the seasons is key to being happy and healthy all year round.
Heat Up Your Smoothie
You know fall is coming when you wake up in the morning and realize the last thing you want is an ice-cold smoothie. Swap out the ice cubes for hot water and some spices, it will become your new fall favorite.
Serve Up Some Soup
Now is the perfect time to start making soup again. There’s nothing more comforting than a hot bowl of soup on a crisp fall night. When making soup from scratch add in some healthy fall vegetables.
Don’t Forget to Drink Water (or Tea)
Hydration is always top of mind in the summertime when it’s hot, but we need to stay equally hydrated throughout the fall and winter months. Keep your hydration goals the same, aim to drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water daily, or you can opt for herbal teas.
Source Seasonal Foods
There are so many reasons to eat seasonal foods, but fall is an especially important time to load up on them. Eating seasonally is beneficial to your health because seasonal foods provide the best nutrients we need at that specific time of the year. Fall and winter vegetables have nutrients that support our immunity for cold and flu season.
Maintain a Regular Sleep Schedule
As the days get shorter and the nights get longer, keep to your regular sleep schedule. Try and get between seven and nine hours of sleep every night. Pour sleep habits have a detrimental effect on your overall health.
