3 Easy Ways To Improve Your Health This Fall
With back to school, back to work, holidays and the many activities of settling into a new routine, fall can be a busy time of year. But with the days growing shorter and cold and flu season on the horizon, it’s important to keep your health top of mind.
Here are three easy ways to ensure you stay healthy and happy this fall.
1. Cultivate Your Spirit with Humour and Laughter – Kandiss Fernando, TCMP and Acupuncturist
With the changing of the seasons, many people experience heightened emotions, including depression. To help manage your emotions, carve out time to cultivate your spirit with humour and laughter. Spend time with people who lift you up, watch funny movies or even get out to a live comedy event. Pay attention to what lights up your enthusiasm for life and go in that direction.
2. Remember Your Basic Hygiene – Dr. Tamarah Chaddah, Naturopath
As we head into the unavoidable cold and flu season, the best advice I can give my patients is to remember your basic hygiene practices. Remember that most cold and flu viruses are spread by direct contact. If you have the flu and sneeze into your hands, then touch a keyboard, a phone, or a door handle, you have just succeeded in spreading the virus. Be sure to practice the three biggest tips to stay healthy:
- Wash your hands as often as possible.
- Sneeze into your elbow, not your hands.
- Don’t touch your face.
3. Give Yourself Permission to Adjust – Team Simcoe
Transitions mean change. Give yourself time and space to adjust to the new season and any changes it brings. Be sure to make time for self-care including massages, check-ups and any other health care you may have neglected over the summer months.
