Some of the fun of summer is indulging and being a little impulsive – staying at the beach past sunset, ordering the extra scoop on your ice cream cone, binge watching the latest series for way too long. But now it’s time to get back into busy mode for fall. Whether it’s reaching new goals in school, at work or the gym, take a simple approach with these easy tips.
Get Back On The Horse
Don’t let a chill summer mode turn into a more permanent habit. Set a routine to ease back into a regular schedule. If you’ve been skipping your workouts, try signing up with a trainer or joining a fitness class so you’re accountable. Bring a friend!
Jump On It
Take advantage of any extra time in your schedule by tackling projects like cleaning out your closets, learning a new outdoor hobby, or joining a local class. There’s nothing more invigorating than crossing things off your to-do list!
Plan For Nutrition
A busier fall schedule often comes with some unexpected situations and late nights. Be prepared when hunger strikes by having healthy snacks at hand in your desk drawer, gym bag and car. Nuts, beef jerky, trail mix, and dried fruits are all nutritious shelf-stable options.
Don’t Skip Sleep
Staying up late can throw off your sleep schedule. Start going to bed at the same time each night and aim for seven to eight hours of sleep so you can get your body’s clock back into a healthy routine.
Freshen Your Fitness Gear
Have your sneakers lost their bounce? Does your bike need a little tune up? Updating your gear a couple times each year keeps you safe and injury free. And nothing inspires a good workout like some new gear!
Reassess Your Skin Care Routine
As we ease out of warmer, more humid weather, your skin will need more moisture and probably a little TLC, too. You may have been using a lighter moisturizer in the summer months since your skin is hydrated or even oily from all that humidity. But fall and winter months are bound to bring drier skin, so start preparing now by using a heavier, thicker moisturizer.
Look Out for Number One
No matter how careful you were over the summer, you probably sustained some skin damage from the sun. Repair discoloration and scarring by choosing a moisturizer that can correct as well as hydrate.
