5 Ways to Stay Happy and Healthy This Fall

With the fall season rolling in quickly, I’m sure many of us are getting ready for autumn with the coziness of fuzzy sweaters, crackling campfires, and yes, the ever-popular pumpkin spice lattes.

But fall can also be a dangerously easy time to fall back into our bad habits of snacking on junk food and bunkering in for an evening of Netflix and hot chocolate.

We all need those relaxing nights, and that’s one of the great things about fall. But, we at Cool Cane Inc. are huge advocates for remaining happy and healthy by eating right and staying active.

So here are 5 simple ways to stay healthy this fall:

1.     Make Goals to Start Before the New Year

We’ve all heard of making our New Years resolutions and creating goals at the start of every New Year, but according to statisticbrain.com, only 8 percent of people are successful in achieving their New Years resolutions.

Let’s create a 100% success rate by starting our yearly goals at a different milestone during the year. What’s a better time than a change of seasons? That way, when the New Year comes around, you can look back and see how much you’ve already completed. You’ll feel so proud of yourself for everything that you’ve accomplished thus far and will be motivated to continue on with your goals.

2.     Be Sure to Stay Hydrated

Yes, we should always stay hydrated no matter what time of year it is, but it’s especially important to remember to keep drinking water even after the hot summer sun moves into colder weather. You may want to reach for a steaming cup of coffee or tea, but water should always be number one. Coffee is good too of course, but in moderation.

3.     Eat Fall Superfoods

Foods like apples have lots of incredible health benefits like being super good for your teeth, helping your body to protect against diseases and cancers, and even reducing your risk for diabetes. Brussels sprouts are another excellent fall super food that go perfectly in side dishes like roast vegetables. 100% pure sugarcane juice can also help you stay hydrated and allow you to benefit from the nutrients and alkaline nature that’s found in the natural plant.

4.     Keep an Active Routine

Finding ways to stay active in the fall is one of the keys to living a healthy life for the rest of the year. Get a workout from fall activities like cycling in the crisp air, jogging on a brisk morning, or even raking up leaves and branches.

Pro tip:For a less conventional approach at maintaining your health this fall, try becoming an avid TV watcher – yes, that’s right. Watch more TV. As long as you do one thing: incorporate physical activity in to your TV time. You can work on your arms with dumbbells during the show, and practice your squats and sit-ups during commercial breaks.

5.     Find and Maintain Your Daily Routine

I’m sure most of us participate in anunstructured daily routine – one that comes naturally to us. This fall, try to create a routine for yourself that will help you accomplish your goals. Try getting to bed at a certain time each night and making your lunches the night before work. Experimentwith yoga practices and relaxing activities like painting and drawing. Routines can help you build momentum in your life and spring you into positivity.

If you live in an area with gloomy, rainy weather, sometimes the change in climate and temperature can challenge your mood. With our 5 simple tips, we guarantee you’ll feel like a better you this holiday season.
