The transition to the busier and shorter days of fall can be a challenge. To help ease the change, we’ve put together 15 Autumn Wellness Tips to get you ready for the colder months and keep your mental (and physical!) health in check.

  1. Start taking a Vitamin D supplement. We get the maximum of our Vitamin D from the sun, and due to the cold weather, the amount decreases since we spend most of our time inside during the fall/winter seasons. A Vitamin D supplement can improve your immune system and boost your mood!
  2. Get your flu shot and yearly check-up. Self-explanatory! No one likes sneezing and coughing and sniffling and aching getting in the way of life. Yuck.
  3. Boost your immune system. Drink plenty of water, wash your hands often to prevent sickness, and eat nutritious foods.
  4. Moisturize your skin. Changing temperatures can make your skin rough and dry. Also, you should not stop wearing sunscreen.
  5. Buy in-season food. Broccoli, beets, eggplant, cabbage, pumpkin, kale, roasted squash, broths, sautéed dark leafy greens, and roots are all great choices.
  6. Do some “spring cleaning” in the fall. Clean out your closet, organize that back room, and rid yourself of things you don’t need.
  7. Exercise is so important. Walking everyday for at least 20 minutes can also help boost your immune system. Or try yoga for a few weeks. You will see a difference.
  8. Avoid sugar. I know this is hard but eat berries and nuts when you have a craving! Checkout 21 days sugar detox
  9. Try to get 7-8 hours of sleep. It’s important to get enough sleep. Sleep helps keep your mind and body healthy.
  10. Pray or meditate for 5-10 minutes in the morning. if you do your meditation first thing in the morning, it may help you set an intention for the rest of your day, and be easier to come back to each day.
  11. Reach out to friends. Try not to isolate. A sympathetic ear or the presence of someone we can trust can help prevent, or at least ease, feelings of isolation, alienation and rumination.
  12. Focus on your mental health. Your mental health is also important because it can affect your physical health. For example, mental disorders can raise your risk for physical health problems such as stroke, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.
  13. Unplug for a day. Another hard thing to do! Try reading a book. Unplugging from technology is like a reboot for your brain.
  14. Make time to unwind at the end of the day. we need to properly unwind and mentally prepare for what lies ahead.
  15. Join my Fall cleanse! Autumn is a time to cleanse in a way that is replenishing and rejuvenating. When we do this, we have the balance and stability to move into the fall and winter months gracefully.
