Healthy Living Tips for Fall
Healthy Living, Tips for Fall
Fall has (officially) arrived! We’re all swapping out our Watermelon and Beach Breeze scented candles for Pumpkin Spice and Apple Cinnamon and getting out the cozy sweaters and boots. I’m secretly wishing it was a little colder in LA. At least I can update my house decorations!
With the change of season I think we often find ourselves craving routine, craving warmth, craving different dishes annnnd avoiding getting the cold. I’ve made a little list of healthy living tips for fall so that we can all thrive through this season, avoid getting sick, and head into the Holidays feeling great!
ONE. RESET YOUR ROUTINE
I think a great way to do this is to review your New Year’s Resolutions. Even if you haven’t even thought about them since January, or you completely fell off the wagon when summer hit. It’s a good review of where you were at the start of the year and where you wanted to be by the end. If you follow me on the gram you might has seen my #ResetWithRemi challenge. I created a habit tracker which you can download here and track your goals week by week. PS I love seeing you guys doing it too so please continue tagging me so I can see! Also you can start any time :)
TWO. STAY SUPER HYDRATED AND INCLUDE NATURAL IMMUNE BOOSTERS
Keeping our hydration up is one of the best ways to avoid the cold and flu! Because temperatures are dropping we tend to drink less because the heat isn’t making us thirsty. Then our bodies become more susceptible to sickness, eek! Include warm options like bone broth, hot water with lemon, or tea if you find cold water makes you too cold!
THREE. EAT SEASONAL FOODS + NATURAL IMMUNE BOOSTERS
Eating seasonal foods like squash, sweet potatoes, apples, pears, cranberries and pumpkin are great for the budget (because they are in season) and help our bodies naturally adjust to autumn. I love going to the fall farmers market and seeing all the incredible Earthy colors.
Some natural immune boosters to include Vitamin C (citrus, yams and cranberries), garlic, zinc and probiotics.
FOUR. UPDATE YOUR SKIN CARE ROUTINE
Summer might have meant lots of sunscreen, lighter makeup and a super simple cleansing routine. Now it’s time to make sure we are upping the moisturizing game! If you follow my IG, you know that I stopped by Kiehls in the new Westfield Century City Mall and got a seasonal skin care consult with Kathy! She informed me my skin was dehydrated (after running a quick test) and helped me find gentle yet hydrating products for me to use this Fall! Seasonal shifts can take a toll on your skin, so make sure you’re making those proper skin care changes before your skin acts out!
Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque - I’m starting the shift with this lightly exfoliating mask that left my skin looking SUPER radiant I love that the cranberry seeds acts like an exfoliater when it’s time to rinse off.. I’ll definitely be using this at least once or twice a week!
Ultra Facial Cream - I apply this twice a day (and sometimes after workouts too). It’s a super simple, unscented, white cream moisturizer.
Midnight Recovery Concentrate - I use this all year round for it’s moisturizing and repairing properties and I’ve been obsessed for a few years now!
FIVE. CONSIDER A VITAMIN D SUPPLEMENT
Many areas in the US, Europe and Canada don’t get enough sun during the winter months, or its sunny but too cold to go outside for long periods of time). Without 15 minutes of sun exposure per day our Vitamin D levels can drop. Check with your doc about starting a Vitamin D supplement which can help boost your mood :)
SIX. STARTING YOUR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING
Yup, I said it! If you start shopping and wrapping now just think of the stres you’ll save around Christmas time! Even if we get 50% done before December, wouldn’t that be awesome?!
Alright guys sounds like we’re all set till Christmas! I’m going to get a workout in (check it off in my habit tracker), eat a rice bowl with sweet potato, wash and moisturize my face and hydrate with water and matcha! Weeee
