Fall is here, the first leaves are turning orange and yellow, the temperature has dropped a bit and it’s time for another seasonal maintenance for our body. An adjustment here and there, a bit of fine tuning and we are ready to great fall looking and feeling our best. So let’s see what it is that you can do to stay radiant and healthy throughout the fall months.
Let’s start from the inside and work our way out
You cannot stay healthy throughout the fall if you don’t take care of your body and modify your nutrition. In addition, fall depression is quite real, and if we don’t take it head on it can reallyaffect how we are perceived and how radiant we look through these months. So let’s start with nutrition. Yes, the summer is over, and it’s better to accept it sooner rather than later. This also means that we are bound to stay active a bit less and definitely lack the sun exposure and that wonderful vitamin D intake. So how do we stay healthy and maintain our glowing skin. The first step is of course modifying our nutrition. Introduce some seasonal fruit and vegetables like pumpkins and pears, and also opt for some nutrient supplementation that includes vitamin D. It is always a good idea to opt for quality healthy snacks to enrich your fall diet and to provide your body with the immunity boost it is bound to need as the weather changes.
Now, the next step is keeping the positive attitude and not letting the lack of sunlight get you down. When you are happy, looking forward to each new day is the best way to look absolutely beautiful. It is our positive emotions that make us radiant. And in order to achieve this, during a generally gloomy season will take a bit of work. First, you should consider changing up your routine. Add a bit more time for yourself in your daily schedule, find things that make you smile, keep those energy levels up and the second you feel you mood is getting down, change something up again. There are many things you can look forward during the fall months, from the amazing colours in nature to great meals and some of the best-tasting tea.
