Fall officially began a few weeks ago and the temperatures are finally starting to cool. Pumpkin spice is everywhere and Halloween costume planning has begun. These are all the tell-tale signs that autumn has arrived in earnest. Although many people think of spring and summer as the times of year to stay active and be healthy, fall is the ideal season to recommit to healthy choices.
The best part? There are so many fall activities that make a healthy lifestyle easy. Here are our top three tips for maintaining a healthy lifestyle and staying active.
The sweltering heat and humidity of the summer have dissipated and now is the perfect time to get outside and stay outside longer. Enjoy the beautiful leave changes, take long walks, go for a bike ride, or register for a fall 5K. A great way to get outside is with your four-legged friend. Take your dog for a lengthy outdoor adventure or simply run around with them at our Bark Park. It’ll be great for you both.
Although the fall weather is usually quite nice, there are always those days when it’s tough to get outside. If you’re an early bird or night owl, you’ll notice it stays darker longer in the morning and gets darker earlier at night. No worries! Keep up your fitness routine with the state-of-the-art Adrenaline Cardio and Strength at our community. This fully-stocked fitness center has everything you need for a great workout!
Eat Delicious and Healthy Foods
Don’t forget about eating healthy too. Fortunately, there are plenty of farmer’s markets nearby and they offer a variety of fresh fruits and veggies this time of year. Lots of healthy root vegetables and leafy greens are in season. Of course, autumn is the perfect time of year for apples too. Plus, they’re packed with antioxidants and flavonoids, which can reduce cholesterol.
