Plan For Transitions
The end of summer brings with it a change in weather, a change in schedule, or the start of an end of the year push for many of us. Any of these changes can cause us to loose momentum when it comes to maintaining our healthy lifestyles. Here are a few tips that can help keep you on track.
1. Plan activities that will keep you moving as the weather becomes cooler. If you are a warm weather exerciser, start to think of physical activities that you enjoy that you can do as the weather becomes colder or the conditions cause you to move indoors.
2. Take the time to put into your calendar the pieces of your healthy lifestyle that you need to keep in place. For instance, schedule time to be active, plan healthy meals, or "downtime" with friends and family.
3. Take advantage of seasonal foods to perk up meals. Fall is a great time find fresh local fruits and vegetables to add to soups, stews, and fresh salads.
