NOURISH YOUR BODY WITH SEASONAL FOODS:
Autumn is harvest season: the time to reap what you planted in the spring and nurtured throughout the summer. Fill your plate with seasonal fruits, vegetables and herbs. Greens are plentiful, as is a rainbow of vitamin rich veggies that can be thrown into a quick soup along with blood building bone broth and virus fighting garlic and onion.
Get your ABCs: arugula, beets and carrots (and all of nature’s bounty) can keep you healthy all winter long.
BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM WITH BODYWORK:
When your body is balanced and nourished, it can function the way that it was designed to do! Your body is an amazing and complex system that can fight off germs and stop sickness in its tracks. If your body is aligned and your chi is flowing, you will feel better & stay healthier!
TUNE INTO NATURE’S SLEEP CYCLES:
With the transition to fall, you may be noticing a change in your energy levels. If you’re feeling extra sluggish, embrace it! The decrease in energy is likely related to the decreased amount of sunlight. Before electricity, humans were tuned into natural sleep cycles: The absence of light meant that it was time to sleep. So, as the endless days of summer wane, go to bed earlier when you can.
SPEND TIME IN NATURE:
Forest bathing is all the rage lately, and with good reason. A new meta-analysis in the journal Environmental Research finds that people who spend more time in green spaces have significantly reduced risks for a number of chronic illnesses: Those who spend more time in nature have reduced levels of the stress hormone cortisol, lower heart rate, lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol and reduced risk of type II diabetes. Get outside and indulge in the crisp coolness of the season.
