Do you feel that autumn chill in the air? For many of us the change in season is marked by tucking away sundresses and sandals in the backs of our closets baited breath until summer. However, don’t tuck away those sneakers, bicycles, and healthy eating habits with your swimsuit. You can maintain your workout and eating regime well into fall. Making adjustments to the changing weather can always be a little difficult, but between fall food and activities there are many ways to make those adjustments to benefit your health.
Here are eight easy ways to remain healthy and fit throughout the fall…
1. Make Time for Exercise
One of the biggest misguided notions we make is that we’re much too busy come September to remain active. Now that might be going to the gym after work or going for a run in the morning, but the kids and their back-to-school needs can really put a damper on free time for working parents. Suddenly that free hour or two you had all summer long is taken up by picking the kids up from school or driving them to soccer practice. Regardless, your health is worth shifting your schedule—be it by leaving a bit early from work to hit the gym or arranging a soccer car pool with another parent a few times a week so you can free up time for that run.
