With the arrival of fall, the days are rapidly getting shorter. That means you’re getting much less sun exposure, so you may be feeling tired, irritable, and burnt out. To support your health and wellbeing as the days get shorter, you may consider taking a morning walk to get some sun first thing when you wake up. Alternatively, you might invest in a happy light or add a vitamin D supplement to your routine to make up for the reduced sun exposure. Including more fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet can also be a mood booster that gives you more energy throughout the day—steer clear of processed foods, which can promote fatigue, anxiety, and weight gain.
If you’re having a hard time transitioning into fall, a visit to Calgary WOW Centre can get you on the right track to boosting your physical and mental wellbeing. Schedule a visit with our ND, Dr. Stephanie Bristow on our website today.
