With fall fast approaching, you’ve likely noticed some seasonal changes in your body. It may be in the form of temperature regulation or food cravings. It could even be in activity level as cooler weather makes more ideal conditions for exercising. Whatever the case may be, you’ve got it in your mind to be healthier than you were before. With very little outside assistance, you can embrace new challenges that allow you to feel good about yourself and better than you have before in years.
Things to Do Now for a Brighter Tomorrow
Five things you can do to be healthier this fall are listed below for your consideration.
#1: Schedule a pelvic exam.
#2: Add more fiber to your diet.
Add fresh fruits and vegetables and legumes to your shopping list. Navy beans, black beans, chia seeds, acorn squash, collard greens, blackberries, and raspberries are just a few options that are full of fiber.
#3: Spend more time outdoors.
You need to spend at least 15 minutes a day outdoors in direct sunlight to kickstart Vitamin D production in the body. Each person’s needs differ so you may find that being outside without sunscreen for a bit longer is more beneficial.
#4: Take time out of the day to do something just for yourself.
Women often put their needs last. Give yourself the gift of time by planning an activity that nourishes your mind, body, or soul.
#5: Build a Dream Team of supporters to cheer you on in life.
Decide who you want by your side on this journey called life. Then start interacting with the type of people who lift you up and make you feel loved and supported at all times.
