. Here are some tips to get the most health benefits from the Autumn months:
1. Eat in Season!
Healthy Tips For The Fall Season
Autumn is an excellent time to shore up your health, get out and enjoy the weather, and prepare for the coming winter
So many wonderful foods are in season in the Autumn. Soups and roasted vegetables can keep you warm and cozy while promoting good vision, heart health, and a strong immune system. Eating in season also supports local and organic farmers, and can save money. Do what you can to include these foods in your weekly diet:
- Butternut, spaghetti, pumpkin and other cold-weather squash
2. Get out !
You can’t go from complaining about the heat to complaining about the cold, or you’ll never leave the house. Put on your jacket and take a nightly walk, or enjoy the warm sunshine on an autumn afternoon. But get out! Fresh air does wonders for your physical and mental health. Simply getting out can reduce your risk of depression!
3. Drink Green Tea!
The benefits of green tea are more than plentiful, and I couldn’t hope to list them all here. But, know that this awesome liquid boosts your cognitive function, decreases your risk of certain types of cancers, and promotes healthy fat loss.
4. Run or Walk a 5k.
You don’t have to be a super-athlete, just be relatively fit and motivated. If running isn’t your thing; walk it. You’ll feel great and you’ll likely get addicted after few times!.
5. Preserve some Produce.
It’s not too late to get the last of the summer-veggies at the farmer’s market. By preserving things like tomatoes, you can get the sweetness of locally grown summer produce when winter arrives, and you won’t have to deal with the BPA in canned tomatoes or the store-bought produce that tastes like cardboard.
6. Get your skin and mind ready for the season.
Seasonal changes can wreak havoc on your skin unless you plan accordingly. While summer skin issues for men tend to be limited to sun damage, fall brings with it a slew of skin conditions – particularly dry skin.
