Even though we are always all about enjoying the warm weather, we have begun to sense the change of seasons in the air. The daylight hours are getting shorter, the evenings are cooling off and the back-to-school sales have suddenly begun (please, let’s not talk about the Christmas cookies we saw at the grocery the other day).
Although it might not feel like it, our bodies, our immune systems and our health go through changes this time of year as well. It’s actually the perfect time to address ways to boost our health and immunity in order to survive the fall and winter months in the best shape possible. Here are some ways to keep on track to stay healthy over the next few months and beyond.
Routine, Routine Routine…!
Long days, late nights and vacations make it easy to get out of routine—and that’s okay every so often! But, our bodies (and minds) function best when we have a daily routine and rIght now is the perfect time to re-establish it. Getting enough sleep with similar daily wake and sleep times is important in ensuring our immune system has the time to replenish itself after a busy summer season.

On cold days it’s tempting to sip on hot drinks like coffee, tea or hot chocolate. However, water keeps your organs and tissues hydrated and flushing out toxins. By staying hydrated all the time, you can actually prevent your body from falling ill easily.

As fall approaches, weather conditions can change suddenly from morning to night. When you go from inside where it’s warm and cozy to outside where it’s chilly or raining, your temperature regulation system can be caught off guard, triggering changes in your immune system as it tries to keep up. To alleviate the toll on your body, dress in layers and take off and put back on as needed.
