Autumn is here and brings shorter days and cooler weather. We're not quite into sweater #weather yet here but it's definitely time to dust off our winter boots. #Fall is a wonderful time to set new goals for yourself and modify your healthy living routine. The holiday season will be here before we know it. Therefore, taking time to prioritize now will also help one stay on track during the winter months.
DON'T BE A COUCH POTATO
Try not to form a habit of curling up and #hibernating on the couch watching television. People who reportedly spend two hours or more per day in front of the television had twice the risk of a heart attack or cardiac arrest. Try limiting your television time and counter by adding other hobbies, like reading a book. Time moves quickly. While watching television, keep an eye on the time and remind yourself not to waste time vegetating.
AVOID HOLIDAY CANDY
#Halloween is right around the corner, followed by #Thanksgiving and #Christmas. Substitute healthy snacks for sweet candles. Try buying enough for the week and portioning your healthy snacks into baggies or containers. As a bonus, you'll feel and look better in your holiday #wear.
TURN FALL CHORES INTO A WORKOUT
EXERCISE EARLIER IN THE DAY
This fall, don't fall back, fall forward and stay encouraged by getting your workout in early. This will allow you to have it done in the event you are not up to it at the end of the day. Look for Fall Color 5K Run Walk opportunities. It's a great way to meet friends and also witness the beautiful turning of the leaves.
