Summer time is like one very long Monday. Every day is made easy when it comes to making healthy resolutions. The sun’s shining hot, go for a jog. It’s beach season, eat a salad. The motivation to make regular exercise and nutrition a lifestyle is infinite.
But how do you keep that motivation going during the colder months. That’s the discipline really comes into play. It’s mainly mental, because continuing the healthy streak is easier than you think.The first thing to do is keep up the streak. Continue to exercise regularly. Although the cold can lead many of us to swap workouts for fall TV premieres, remember that working on your fitness doesn’t mean you have to go to the gym, just pick something that gets you moving and motivated. Try taking the stairs at the office instead of the elevator or enroll in a fun fall fitness challenge with your friends to keep each other accountable.
Secondly, avoid those autumn blues by addressing any allergies you may have head on. They don’t just happen in the spring. If ragweed season is hitting you hard, try Claritin for relief. The convenient non-drowsy format will help you feel your best. Check your local region’s pollen count, and if the number is high, allergies and allergy symptoms may be just around the corner. So be prepared and have Claritin on hand! If you’re already feeling under the weather, AERIUS can help battle an allergy-induced cough before it gets out of hand (insert prayer hands).
Last but not least: Summer Skincare. Taking care of your skin should be a year-round focus. The winter sun’s rays, although weaker, can still do damage without you even noticing it. A lightweight sunscreen like Coppertone Clearly Sheer for face and body can help protect you against sun burns. . You won’t even notice it’s there while it screens UVA and UVB rays to provide broad spectrum protection.
Getting back into your schedule can make the summer seem fleeting, but don’t worry. If you have these habits in place all year long, you’ll feel like summer will come back around in a flash!
