Reboot Your Wellness Routine this Fall
For many of us, September represents a fresh start and a new season, making it the perfect time of year to revamp our wellness routines to better align with the needs of our bodies and minds. Mindfullly staying in tune with the season can reduce stress, help you focus, and assist with adapting to change.
Adjusting your Wellness Routine for the Needs of the Season
When assessing your wellness strategy, look at the areas that aren’t working and where you have the capacity to adjust. Take into consideration the four wellness cornerstones:
Eating seasonally not only adds variety to your diet, in-season produce is also more nutritious and flavourful. Make it a priority to eat foods that contain nutrients that will be helpful at this time of year. I recommend these key supplements for seasonal support: vitamin D, vitamin C, probiotics, oil of oregano.
Instead of planning each and every meal, try a simpler approach. My recent article, “12 Tips for Creating Healthy Meals” provides some helpful ideas on making meal planning more effective, enjoyable and stress-free. If you’re making protein prep your focus, you can opt for a veggie tray or salad.
Routines can benefit you both mentally & physically, resulting in healthier eating habits, better sleep, improved stress management, increased productivity and the ability to include exercise.
1. When making a plan for your routine it’s best to list out your goals to keep yourself accountable.
2. Flexibility is important; adding one or two items to your routine at a time may make it more manageable.
