It's that time of the year when we go back to school and work, start to dress more, have the first colds.
So, how to prepare optimally for this change of season? Actually, there are some tricks that can come in handy.
Get more vitamin D
You can get it naturally with walks on sunny days but you can also take some supplements, as the sun hides more and more going towards winter.
Eat more seasonal vegetables.
Especially root vegetables. They help your gut remain healthy. A good digestive system is very important, as it regulates several nutrition functions such as detoxification, immune and metabolic processes in the body.
Consume soups and certain spices
What's better than a good soup in Autumn? Shifting to watery and warm foods it's a good way for our bodies to fight the first colds. Also, the colder months can make our hair, lips and face feel dry, so it's important to stay hydrated. if you can add some warming spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves.
Improve your sleep practices
It's a good idea to start going to bed a bit earlier, keeping the room cool, dark and soundproof. Also, going to sleep and waking up at the same hours can give your body and mind a better rest.
