In honor of National Nutrition Month this March, below are some easy and helpful tips…
It is easy to fall into bad habits when the weather changes. Your diet starts to slip, you catch a cold and all you want to do is avoid going outside into the cold weather. Follow these simple steps from U.S. News to help ease yourself into a healthier fall.
Get Your Flu Shot
Getting your flu shot is not only a way to protect yourself, but also those around you. The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention says, “The single best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu vaccine each season.” Why not skip the annual fall flu this season and get your vaccine?
Cold weather has always been a culprit of weakening our immune systems. Whether it comes in a powder, fruit or drink, a good dose of vitamin C will raise your immune system. Beating the common cold keeps you on your feet and able to enjoy all of the wonderful activities fall has to offer!
Set a New Goal
While we usually associate January with goal creation, fall is the perfect time to end the year on a high note. The changing of the seasons can be a gloomy time, but by working on your own physical goals and mental health, you can get ahead of the winter blues. Creating a simple goal is the perfect way to motivate yourself to keep an active lifestyle.
Each of these steps are small changes that can make a big difference in the way you transition into fall!
