Fight the Fall Blues!

Hello,

Now I don't know if this applies to you, but I tend to get tired and a little low during October-November. So just in case you are like me, I wanted to collect my best tips here on how to stay energetic, not get depressed and not get sick and tired of the darkness and cold.

So, without further a do, here goes:

TAKE CARE OF YOUR HEALTH

This is pretty obvious, but now is the time to take care of yourself, if ever! Show yourself some love by staying hydrated (minimum 2 liters a day), eating a lot of fresh fruit and veg, working out regularly, sleeping enough (at least 8 hours) and considering some kind of supplementation. I recommend consulting with your doctor before starting any supplement regimes, I usually get my blood tests in the fall just to see that I'm getting enough of everything, but things like vitamin D3 can be a good idea to supplement on if you're living in the Northern parts of the world. Also, B12 is important to take care of, no matter what time of the year.

SET GOALS AND HUSTLE

If you get stuck with life and feel unmotivated, it is easy to get too into procrastination.. Just accept it - summer is far over, but we are no longer in September, so it is time to get back to the grind and be productive! No matter what it is that you want to achieve, set smaller goals towards the big end goal. Are you a student? Decide to get the best grades ever this semester. At work, strive to be the best co-worker possible. Or perhaps you want to get into the best shape of your life? Now is the time to start! Remember, that summer bodies are made in the winter.
The point I'm trying to make is that if we distract ourselves with good projects, not only does the time go faster (anyone else excited for christmas?? lol) but we become better as people and achieve great things. Sure, sometimes you can just Netflix and chill with a cup of vegan  hot chocolate, but not every night, all right? ;)

CUT DOWN ON THE CAFFEINE

I personally don't drink any coffee, and only herbal teas, but you may not be aware of the fact that it affects our health and sleeping patterns greatly. Make sure not to have coffee too late during the day, and if you're not able to cut it out completely, at least only have a cup or two in the morning, and stick to tea later on. If you're feeling tired, try drinking water instead! Most of the time, hydration helps to energize our brain enough. Or a powernap. They're pretty awesome, for sure. Not just for feeling more energized. Just make sure you won't sleep longer than 30 minutes, because you might end up feeling more tired afterwards.

These are the most effective things to do in order to fight the fall blues, hope you found them helpful!

Stay healthy ya'll
