Now that the days are getting shorter, you may be tempted to stay indoors and hibernate, which can stall your progress toward reaching your health goals. Don’t let this get in the way of your transformation! Here are some ways to stay on track and maintain your healthy habits:
- Get some sun. As the days become shorter and darker earlier, we get less time in the sun. Supplement with either Vitamin D or make sure that you spend some time outside. Vitamin D can boost your mood and immune system.
- Prepare for flu season. Build up your immune system by taking vitamins and stock up on hand sanitizer. Practicing healthy sleep habits can help keep the common cold away from you and your family.
- Maintain your Habits of Motion. Just because the weather is changing that doesn’t mean that you can’t continue your healthy habits of motion. Take your habit inside or layer up and continue to stay in motion.
- Take time for yourself. This time of the year can be hectic and overwhelming, so it’s important to take time for yourself when you can. It can be as simple as journaling for an hour each day or reading each night uninterrupted.
