We spend all year waiting for weekends at the lake and warm days in the sunshine of summer. But as we enjoy the season of cookouts, cabins and travel, summer’s laid-back pace often causes us to set aside our regular schedules and abandon the nourishing habits that help us feel our best. Shifting back to the more regimented fall schedule can feel challenging and stressful. Rebuild nourishing habits now that will carry you through the coming busy season feeling healthier and less overwhelmed.
Plan Your Week
As busier schedules kick in, planning meals in advance helps you avoid the take-out rut and keeps you less stressed and feeling your best.
Whether you are back-to-school or back-to-work, also get back in the habit of bringing your own nourishing lunch to save money, increase mental clarity and stay energized throughout the day:
Avoid the pitfalls of grazing on foods that bring you down with these tips for nourishing snacks.
After a summer spent outdoors, don’t let the cooler air push you inside. Set up a routine to stay active and outdoors into the cooler months. Remember – there is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing!
Nourishing Habits for a Less-Stressed, Feel-Better Fall
After letting your normal rhythms fall by the wayside during summer, invest energy in rebuilding nourishing habits so you have the energy and resilience to face the day-to-day challenges of the busy fall months. When you have a solid, nourishing rhythm in place, you will face the back-to-school and back-to-work stress with calm and wellness.
You will love the way you feel!
