Fall and winter are a time where you may have to admit, laziness can occur. The cold weather, Thanksgiving, holiday dinners and vacation can keep you from eating healthy and exercising everyday. Don’t worry: these tips will help you set your limit and keep you from going overboard.

Set your goal and limit:

If your goal to stay healthy is too general or vague, you will less likely to 100% reach your goal. Establish specific guidelines including a weekly meal and exercise plan. For example, you can allow yourself to eat one or two desserts a week and walk thirty minutes a day. Regularity and uniformity is key to helping you reach your goal.

Fall foods:

Eating fruits and vegetables based on each season are helpful because it is more affordable, more nutritious, and it tastes better. Pumpkins, apples, and Brussels sprouts are all in season!

Enhance your immune system:

It is typical that this season is known for people getting sick, especially children who are in school. To help you from getting sick this fall, eat simple and nutritious foods. Limit sugary foods and boost your vitamin intake!

Hydrate:

Even if it’s not hot like in the summer, it is still important keep yourself hydrated to keep your body running well and staying healthy.

At home fitness:

Just because it is cold outside, doesn’t mean you have to stop working out. You can create a small workout station in your home. You can do similar exercises that will keep you just as fit as you would if you were working outside.

Keeping Active this Fall- it’s easy!

From our Massage Envy Touch of Wellness Blog, we bring you our top 10 tricks and tips for keeping active even as summer passes by and we become preoccupied with the upcoming holidays and stress of everyday tasks.
Do your best to follow a personalized fitness plan daily and you’ll see results!
1.     Find what you love. Whether it’s clearing your thoughts during a long run or dancing the night away in a Zumba class.
2.     Make fitness a priority. Like paying bills and doing laundry, working out should be considered an important priority. Not something you do every once and a while.
3.     Run (or walk) an errand. Leave the car behind. Try running your errands on foot, or bike instead.
4.     Grab a friend or family member and catch up on a long walk instead of via e-mail or phone.
5.     Don’t forget, doing chores around the house burns lots of calories. Great way to kill two birds with one stone!
6.     Have an hour lunch break? Take advantage and squeeze 30 minutes of walking in. It will feel good to stretch your legs mid-day.
7.     Track your progress. It’s important to note major milestones, like your first 3-mile run or the half-day hike you conquered.
8.     Be proud of your accomplishments and share them with family and friends. That extra motivation will keep you going.
9.     Switch it up. Don’t let fitness get boring. Find a variety of activities that get you moving and feeling good.
10. Baby steps. It takes time to work up to your fitness goals. Stay positive and stick to your healthy living routine.
