It is easy to fall into bad habits when the weather changes. Your diet starts to slip, you catch a cold and all you want to do is avoid going outside into the cold weather. Follow these simple steps from U.S. News to help ease yourself into a healthier fall.
Get Your Flu Shot
Getting your flu shot is not only a way to protect yourself, but also those around you. The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention says, “The single best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu vaccine each season.” Why not skip the annual fall flu this season and get your vaccine?
Cold weather has always been a culprit of weakening our immune systems. Whether it comes in a powder, fruit or drink, a good dose of vitamin C will raise your immune system. Beating the common cold keeps you on your feet and able to enjoy all of the wonderful activities fall has to offer!
Set a New Goal
While we usually associate January with goal creation, fall is the perfect time to end the year on a high note. The changing of the seasons can be a gloomy time, but by working on your own physical goals and mental health, you can get ahead of the winter blues. Creating a simple goal is the perfect way to motivate yourself to keep an active lifestyle.
Each of these steps are small changes that can make a big difference in the way you transition into fall!
