It’s that time of year: autumn has arrived! But the transition to the shorter and busier days of fall can be a challenge. Autumn means cooler air, less daylight and shorter days. That’s why this is when we need to be especially mindful about our self-care rituals! If you are looking for some tips, here are seven simple ways to maintain wellness during this autumn season:
- Nourish with Seasonal Foods
This is the time to warm our bodies with organic soups and seasonal vegetables like butternut squash, pumpkin, roots and dark leafy greens. Mother Nature provides all the ingredients we need to nourish our bodies during the cooler months! And don’t forget the seasonal plants like turmeric and ginger: perfect to make your own spice blends!
- Boost your Immune System
Your immune system needs support during the seasonal transition into autumn. You can do this by drinking plenty of water, washing your hands often to prevent sickness, and eating nutritious foods such as broths and soups. Natural remedies and supplements may help you as well! Try Ener-C delightful-tasting vitamin drink mix or Biocare Multivitamins & Minerals to boost and strengthen your immunity system! And discover here our range of immunity products!
- Stay Active!
It can be easy to just stay at home all the time over the cooler months, but it’s important to get in some movement throughout the day. Inactivity slows down our circulation and metabolism and weakens our immune system. So, make sure you keep your body moving and take advantage of the beautiful golden sunsets and brilliant foliage outdoors!
- Sleep with the Cycles of Nature
Days are shortening and nature suggests us to nourish ourselves, slow down and get some quality sleep. Consider incorporating herbs, tea or natural remedies into your sleep practices to improve the quality of your sleep but also the one of your waking hours!
- Be Kind to Yourself
After summer and the holidays, our bodies are naturally slowing down. Listen to your body and give it what it needs. Learn to manage stress and try to find a moment of peace each day: just brew a relaxing cup of tea, practice meditation or run a relaxing hot bath!
- Moisturise Your Skin
Cooler temperatures can make your skin dry. Choose carefully your skincare rituals: use organic and natural skincare products and nourish your skin every day. And don’t forget to drink some water!
- Take Vitamin D Supplements
We get most of our Vitamin D from the sun, so our intake decreases when the days are shorter and the weather is colder. If you find you are not getting outside much, a Vitamin D natural supplement can boost your mood and immune system!
Enjoy the full beauty of autumn and take care of yourself!
