FALL WELLNESS TIPS INCLUDE BEATING THE AFTERNOON SLUMPS!

ENERGIZING YOUR AFTERNOONS MAY INCLUDE A BRISK WALK, INDOORS OR OUTDOORS. EVEN A QUICK FLIGHT OF STAIRS OR A BRISK WALK AROUND THE PARKING LOT AT WORK OR BEFORE ENTERING A STORE WORKS WONDERS.

EAT AN APPLE... REAP THE BENEFITS OF AN ENERGIZING HEALTHY SNACK WITHOUT THE CAFFEINE.

TIDY UP. TAKE A 5 MINUTE CLEAN UP BREAK TO STRAIGHTEN UP THE COFFEE TABLE, WASH DISHES, OR CLEAN OUT A DRAWER.

CLOSE YOUR EYES FOR TWO MINUTES, ALLOWING YOUR FOCUS TO BE ON BREATHING DEEPLY AND LETTING THOUGHTS OR WORRIES PASS BY LIKE CLOUDS. LOOK UP EFFECTIVE MEDITATION SITES LIKE HEADSPACE.COM AND CALM.COM WHICH WILL PROVIDE FREE TRIAL MEMBERSHIPS OR FREE EASY LISTENING RELAXATION SOUNDS ON YOUR PHONE, COMPUTER OR ANY ELECTRONIC DEVICE.


FALL FITNESS TIPS:

ONE HABIT THAT SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE SHARE IS DAILY PHYSICAL MOVEMENT, FOR THE PURPOSE OF BETTERING HEALTH. DAILY EXERCISE OR STAYING ACTIVE CAN HELP US ACHIEVE GOALS, STAY ON TRACK, EAT BETTER, RECHARGE THE BRAIN, IMPROVE MEMORY AND SLEEP, REDUCE DISEASE RISK, BREAK BAD HABITS, HELP US COMPETE IN A HEALTHY WAY, AND STAY MENTALLY SHARP. YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM GETS STONGER TOO!

START WITH BABY STEPS, TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME, MAKE EXERCISE A HABIT AND MAKE IT FUN. LOOK FOR MORE SOLID ADVICE FROM A TRUSTED FITNESS PROFESSIONAL OR YOUR PHYSICIAN.
