Summer is long gone, and at Fraîche, we’re prioritizing fall wellness in the upcoming months. As the seasons change, we all know that maintaining our well-being is crucial. You’ve probably heard that regular exercise, a balanced diet, and sufficient sleep are the foundations of physical health. But we want to offer you a few extra tips to stay in great shape this season.
Eat well for fall wellness
Fall is the perfect time to introduce seasonal fruits and vegetables into your diet. Fresh produce like apples, pears, pumpkins, and squashes are all the rage, and they make for fantastic ingredients in delectable fall recipes. These foods are not only flavorful but also packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They can contribute to improved mental well-being by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation. To get you started, here’s one of our favorite cabbage recipes that’s sure to impress your guests.
Incorporate fiber and complex carbohydrates into your diet with foods like whole wheat, brown rice, quinoa, and oats. These choices can help keep you energized and satisfied throughout the day.
Support your physical wellness by including foods rich in healthy fats, such as fish, nuts, seeds, and olive oil, in your meals. These ingredients can reduce the risk of heart disease. Be sure to explore one of our recommended farm-to-table restaurants known for their high-quality protein dishes.
Even as the temperatures drop, don’t forget to maintain your regular physical activity routine. You can adapt your workouts for indoor settings, experiment with new activities like indoor swimming or yoga, or enjoy outdoor adventures such as hiking and cycling in the refreshing fall air.
As the days grow shorter, it becomes essential to prioritize sleep. Establish a consistent sleep schedule and create a sleep-friendly environment by, for instance, disconnecting from your phone at least an hour before bedtime and enabling airplane mode.
For mental well-being, make the most of the season by getting out of the house, perhaps even returning to the office, and engaging in enjoyable activities like apple picking to uplift your mood and enhance your overall mental health. Here are some invaluable tips on maintaining your mental well-being. At Fraîche, we believe in holistic wellness, and we’re here to support you every step of the way.
